Kirin Richmond is located at Richmond Centre (7900 Westminster Hwy) on the side where The Bay is. I grew up frequently Kirin Coquitlam. Since they moved, it was always difficult to go out of my way to Kirin Starlight or even the Richmond location. Especially if you are looking for a quick fix in the neighbourhood with the Parentals. However, Kirin Richmond offers a lot of specialty dishes that is worth the drive. A change of scenery is always refreshing.

Different from our last epic dim sum chow down we focused on house specials and refined dumplings. Staple favourites always include steamed shrimp dumplings, Siu Main pork dumplings , spareribs and some beef rice rolls.
To highlight a few specialty items worth ordering and repeating.
Steamed Pine Mushroom and Pork Dumpling Filled with Consomme 野生松茸小籠包: Not many people think to order XLB at a non-Shanghainese restaurant. However, these dumplings has a nice juicy fill, thin skin and a touch of pine mushroom for an extra early bite.
Pan Fried Pork Belly and Preserved Vegetable Bun 五花腩梅菜生煎包: these pan fried bun are fragrant and is well balanced between the fatty pork belly and preserved veggies. It is soft but not mushy.
Deep Fried Tofu with Minced Pork 西施肉心豆腐: I almost forgot how much I loved this dish. It comes with a spicy sweet soy sauce for dipping and minced pork center.
Braised Assorted Cow Offal in Chef’s Special Sauce en Casserole 麒麟牛雜煲: a nice mix of cow tripe, spleen, etc with white radish. This is a lighter pot compared to the deep marinade you may be typically accustomed to.
Deep Fried Minced Fish and Chinese Mushroom Bean Curd Roll in Steamed Rice Roll 脆竹魚茸香菇腸粉: another common dish we often order is this rice roll stuffed with minded fish paste in deep fried bean curd. This is like the best of three worlds.
Deep Fried Prawn Dumpling Served with Consommé 上湯煎粉粿
Sparerib in Black Bean Sauce on Steamed Plain Rice Roll en Casserole 豉汁排骨腸粉煲
