Where to eat in New Westminster? What is the best New Westminster restaurant? There isn’t a lot of restaurants visible as your drive along Columbia Street or Front Street. Most are now boarded up or in the process of being demolished. But did you know that New Westminster Quay River Market has a few tasty restaurants? Longtail Kitchen and Wild Rice New Westminster are two of my favorite places to eat in New West.
There are two locations for Wild Rice BC: 1. Wild Rice Downtown, 2. Wild Rice New Westminster at River Market. It is best to park at the New Westminster Quay parkade and walk over. It is facing the water. If you are wedding dress shopping along Columbia Street, it is also great to park here. $1.25/hour or $6/day. So while you are trying on wedding dresses, you won’t need to worry about feeding the meter. New Westminster meters do not take Pay By Phone.
Wild Rice New Westminster interior is simple, cozy and openly bright. The menu by Executive Chef Todd Bright is Asian Fusion focused with plenty of comfort food that are Vegan and Gluten Free friendly.
Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup 11: toasted grill cheese sandwich with aged cheddar, caramelized onions. The onions was a nice touch and added some acidity and sweetness while cutting the fatty taste of grilled cheese. The tomato basil soup had a nice thick consistency and was sharp.
Green Curry 12: We chose deep fried chili tofu to go with this green curry rice bowl. The tofu was lightly battered and fried. The spicy green coconut curry sauce was rich and had a runny consistency. Served with plenty of seasonal greens – eggplant, lotus root, pumpkin and carrots. Jasmine rice on the side. Tofu +4, Chicken + 6, Shrimp +8.
Deluxe Wor Wonton Soup 7: egg noodles, pork and chicken wontons, shrimp, vegetables in roasted chicken broth. This was a good sized bowl and is perfect for any lunch and dinner!
