Congee Noodle House 粥麵館

 

 

Congee Noodle House Vancouver 粥麵館 on Main x Broadway is your one stop noodle, rice, and congee house. They are opened late at night and a crowd favorite for many during lunch time. The location is convenient needless to say. The service is prompt but they don’t care much about your personal properties. They will push   jam a dirty cart full of dishes right up against your jacket (even when there is clearly not enough room). The floors are sticky and the washrooms are filthy. This place certainly is a winner.

 

 

 

Congee Noodle House 粥麵館

 

BBQ pork noodles: Thin chewy noodles al dente with a flavorful broth laced with MSG. Addictive I tell you. The BBQ pork is hit and miss. Some days it is very tender, while other days could be tough.

Fish Ball and Rice Noodles: Bouncy with every bite. The balls however lack some serious flavor.

 

Congee Noodle House 粥麵館

 

Salt and Pepper Deep Fried Small Fry: Nicely double fried and garnished with salt and pepper. Something excellent on it’s own or with congee!

Four Treasure BBQ Rice: The treasures are a mixture of BBQ port, Soy Chicken, Salty Egg, and Roasted Pork. Fatty pieces with a dash of soy.

Salt and Pepper Deep Fried Tofu: Similar to the small fry, these tofu are delicious. But be careful they are soaked with oil inside. Better to wait a little before putting them in your mouth.

 

Overall, I always feel short changed here. My dry cleaning certainly was more expensive than my meal where portions have shrunk significantly over time. If you are dying for a bowl of decent congee, I suggest Tai Hing Congee and Noodle House 大興粥麵之家 in Richmond.

Bao Chau Vietnamese Vancouver (East Hastings / Sunrise) | No More Banh Mi 寶珠

Bao Chau Vietnamese Restaurant

Bao Chau Vietnamese Restaurant

Bao Chau Vietnamese Vancouver 寶珠 is located on 2717 East Hastings Street near the infamous Pulled Pork Pancake at Red Wagon, PNE and Playland. This Vietnamese Pho restaurant has been around since I was a little kid and still continues to serve up simple Vietnamese dishes such as Pho noodles, broken rice, and their infamous spring rolls. Although they no longer offer any Banh Mi (such a disappointment! They were really good), Bao Chau 寶珠 is still one of my favorite Pho places with reasonable prices.

House Special Beef Noodle: Loaded with your usual thinly sliced fatty beef and garnished with white and green onions and cilantro. A light flavorful broth.

 

 

 

 

Bao Chau Vietnamese Restaurant

Bun Bo Hué or Pho Bo Hué 順化泃粉: I prefer Pho noodles over Bun Noodles. It is easier for me to pick up with chopsticks and I prefer the texture more. So I ask for a substitute. The broth is mildly spicy with predominant lemongrass flavors. Very spicy chilli oil is added later into the beef broth. Now you may argue that one could pour in some chili oil found on the table side and it should be no different. Ah, but it is not. The yumminess of this broth can’t be tampered with. Loaded with Vietnamese ham and fatty beef slices and the full works. delicious. Now where can I find true Pho Bo Hué with actual pork hock?
Bao Chau Vietnamese Restaurant
Spring Rolls: Crispy spring rolls that is not too oily and has a nice filling but it was slightly mushy during my last visit.

 

 

Service and the food is prompt and if you are in a hurry you could be in and out less than 30 mins. There are parking spaces in the back and plenty along the street. Bao Chau Vietnamese has plenty of cheap eats for good value.

Pho Sen Lotus Beef Noodle Restaurant, Coquitlam

Pho Sen Lotus Beef Noodle Restaurant, Coquitlam

When one wants to dine out in Coquitlam, especially Asian cuisines, there aren’t a lot of choices. To add to the frustration, most do not open late (meaning past 10pm)… So where does one go for grub when they are too tired to venture out or just want a bowl of something satisfying within comforts of home? Somewhere clean where you won’t see salad rolls being prepared on dining tables sans cutting board or the very least plastic cover like a nearby 99 restaurant? (SRS, no joke!!!)

Pho Sen (Lotus Beef Noodle Restaurant) is located in Lincoln Centre, home to medical, dental and doctor’s offices; is in bit of a “suicide” location! Off the main roads and tucked in a ugly out-dated complex. Across the street is Henderson Place Mall. Pho Sen gave this restaurant a desperately needed face lift it’s predecessor neglected! Beautifully reno-ed with tiles, brick walls, bright lights and neutral tones, Pho Sen is invitingly clean where most other hole-in-the-wall pho places lacks!

The broth here is light (as in not oily) but yet still aromatic and flavorful! Portions are hefty and prices are reasonable!

Grilled Shrimp and Pork on Vermicelli – Dry Noodles (Bun Tom Thit Nuong)
Pho Sen P1010559 Pho Sen P1010564Pho Sen P1010563

The bowl is absolutely humongous! Marinated pork is well seasoned and tender; Shrimp skewers are fresh and juicy… Sprinkled with peanuts, shredded lettuce, cucumbers, bean sprouts and fish sauce. Ask for extra fish sauce (one bowl is usually not enough) and pre-mix some chili oil before pouring onto your dry noodles! Result? Fan-friggin-tastic!

Be sure to try their specialty crispy duck and choose from curry, house ‘king bac’, oyster and sweet and sour sauce – $14.95 for the special with jasmine rice, $2 extra to sub for fried noodles.

Crispy Duck with House ‘King Bac’ Sauce (Vit Chien Don)
Pho Sen P1010554 Pho Sen P1010561 Pho Sen P1010562

The duck deep fried but the meat is tender and the skin is crispy golden brown. Best of all it is not oily as one would imagine in a piece of KFC! The house sauce with green/red peppers and onions tasted like Hoi Sin (oyster sauce) that is slightly under flavor… I beg to decipher what the Oyster Sauce vs King Bac has to differ… Trust the curry sauce will actually be more suitable candidate for the duck…

Summer Roll (aka Salad rolls)

A refreshing snack with fresh prawns, lettuce and vemicelli…

Fresh Lime Soda

absolutely refreshing especially on a hot summer’s day!!
Apparently Dave also came here during the day by himself. So we’ll have to wait and see what his “table for one” entitles.
