Kirin Starlight Seafood Restaurant 麒麟海鮮酒家 in Starlight Casino in New Westminster (or better known as 星光麒麟) is an excellent venue for wedding and banquets. The parking is plentiful, the space is open and the location is centralized for guests in Vancouver and in the suburbs. I’m a fan of Kirin for many years, mainly when they had their Coquitlam location (too bad it is now closed). Their quality and price point are fair. Of course, it’s always wise to compare a few restaurants Western or Chinese like Dragon View Seafood, Swan E Set Golf Course, etc.
What is also nice about Kirin Starlight Seafood Restaurant is that they have a large conference room in the back – suitable for a small reception for photos or a gallery of love moments for the bride and groom.
Kirin Starlight Seafood Restaurant Chinese Wedding menus are more or less the same depending on the fixe prix menu chosen.
Special Kirin Platter 乳豬拼盤: Roasted Suckling Pig, jellyfish, salmon sashimi, vegetarian goose (really just bean curd and Chinese mushrooms), and marinated beef slices.
Breaded Crab Claw 蟹拑: Minced shrimp and wrapped in crab claw then deep fried with a juicy center.
Medley of Scallops, Geoduck, Clam and Seasonal Greens 花蚌, 帶子: 花蚌 geoduckand scallops are lightly stirred fried with snap peas, garlic and chives.
Nice that we can BYOB now to restaurants! Beer is so refreshing after a long day in heels!
Sharks Fin Soup 魚翅: Still one of best Chinese delicacies and refined soup for centuries. A delicious dense soup with chicken stock, Chinese ham, Chinese mushroom, dried scallops, etc.
Lobster 龍蝦: Sauteed lobster in scallions and ginger. Best in simplicity.
Chinese Mushroom, Abalone Slices and Seasonal Greens 鲍片: I always look forward to Chinese mushrooms for their earthy flavor. Abalone slices were a little on the skinny side.
Fried Young Spring Chicken: A crispy skin and tender body served with shrimp crackers.
Steamed Rock Cod 魚: I can eat this all day. I can have the whole fish to myself only and be content. Steam and served with a splash of hot oil, soy, and green onions.
Carbs: E-Mein Noodles 伊麵 tossed in soy and a standard fried rice with diced chicken, scallops, egg and peppers.
Sweets Platter: Walnut cookies are light and airy and Mango Pudding are soft and creamy with sprinkled coconut shreds.
Dessert Sweet Soup: Logan and Sesame sweet dumpling in a ginger black sugar soup. Hydrating, light and delicious. A good blessing and a refreshing from the general red bean soup.
