AAA Restaurant 麗記 recently opened in Richmond just a few doors down from Lido Restaurant 麗都餐廳. It took over the old space where Kam Ho 金豪麵家 used to be at 8053 Alexandra Road. Fans of Lido (me included) seem to be either happy for an alternative or made at the copy cat.
It is no doubt, the menu and decor suggests the two are quite similar. AAA replicas if you will. But you will probably understand once you understand that one of the chefs from Lido opened AAA. As for us, we are quite happy of the new roomier cafe with less line ups sans attitude.
Breakfast and Lunch combos is their specialty. Come before noon and enjoy a nice choice of breakfast items from congee, oatmeal, omelettes to soup noodles. After 12 noon, you can also choose from a plethora of rice dishes and sides like turnip cakes. Everything is good in my books!
Hot Horlick and Iced Milk Tea. The milk tea is rich and strong and no doubt will keep me up past 1am.
But before anything else, can we talk about this beauty of a pineapple bun? This BLB has a crunchy shell. It is slightly coated with a little bit more sugar than Lido. The bun is moist and served hot with a giant slab of cold butter. Some argue that the King of Pineapple Buns is still 金華冰廳 Kam Wah Cafe in Hong Kong. Frankly I don’t care much of Kam Wah and this AAA Pineapple Bun simply hits the spot!
Satay Beef Instant Noodles: Tenderized beef slices with a good satay broth.
Added to a combo is a dinner roll and ham and egg omelette.
Shredded Pork with Preserved Vegetables: One of my favorite comfort dish for any cold, rainy day.
Pan Fried Turnip Cake: a great side especially loaded with chili oil!

Milltown Bar & Grill reminds me a lot of the Flying Beaver. Although the address says “Richmond”, it is technically on the Vancouver “Marpole” side of town. It is simply a quick turn off Granville Street / Milton Street – right where Chervron gas station […]
Le Tea 樂茶 is a new bubble tea shop in Richmond. It is located 1161-3779 Sexsmith Road within Continental Mall where Pearl Castle, 0755 Restaurant and Dragon View Chinese Cuisine is. I like how convenient it is next to a plethora of restaurants and cafes. It is perfect for that before/after dinner snack.
There are a few tables and some comfy button tufted seats to relax in. I like the rustic decor of exposed faux bricks and wood.
Matcha Soft Serve Ice Cream Cone 3: A creamy not too sweet cone. It probably could have used a little more matcha green tea powder to intensify the flavors.

What I like about them, is that they are also part of ClassPass. This makes it really easy for me to book an extra workout session right after work. There are a variety of 60-minute classes throughout the day.
I can’t wait to put on a pair of cute leggings and hit their TRX or Power-Plate classes. I always keep a set of my gym essentials with me. This way I can go for a quick run at lunch or head to class (even last minute)!
By the way, if you have never heard of Power-Plate, this machine gives the body’s muscles a high intensity workout using vibrations to stimulate the muscles. Muscles typically contact once or twice per second. The Power Plate machine contacts the muscles 30-50 times per second. It is an effective way of training in limited time.
