Dai Tung Chinese Restaurant 大同海鮮酒家 has been around as long as I can remember. Located in East Vancouver along Kingsway / Knight St, Dai Tung is known for their Hainan chicken. We came here for an early dinner and already the place was packed and parking was scarce. I really despise the mall and their tight parking spaces. Service here is slow and not always the friendliest.
Hainan Chicken: A proportioned bird with lean meat and fat that turned jelly after its cold bath. The seasoning is thorough and not too salty.
Stir Fried Beef Lettuce Wrap: A simple comfort dish with fried vermicelli for some texture. A good alternative to the lettuce wraps from Beijing Duck.
Dessert of the Day: Taro and sago with barley. A chill sweet soup for a rather hot day.
Dai Tung Chinese Restaurant is a reasonably priced restaurant that is relatively clean. While service isn’t always great, at least the food is consistent for a comfort family meal.
