Tea Wok Asian Cuisine is located next to BCIT in Downtown Vancouver on 551 Seymour Street. There are not a lot of Taiwanese restaurants there, so it was nice to add a little variety to the everyday grind. This restaurant offers menu options with set meals, appetizers, hot pot, soup noodles and rice. I also like that they have bubble tea, slushes and shaved ice.
Lychee and Rose Slush 4.75: I added both boba pearls and coconut jelly. I always ask for half sweet because I find bubble tea slushes to be overly sweet in general.
Wheat Germ Green Milk Tea 4.25: My go to drink is Wheat Germ however this was not my favorite. It was chalky and a tad too powdery.
Deep Fried Squid 6.95: I also really like deep fried squid. Mostly deep fried anything is awesome so long as it isn’t too greasy. This batter was light and squid was tender.
Sukiyaki Beef Hotpot 11.50: A good meal for anyone looking for some heat. This meal comes with rice noodles, meatballs, fish cake, tofu, enoki mushrooms and seasonal a vegetables. I like the tender fatty beef that carried the mala spices. Add on a bubble and you are set my friend!
Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup 11.50: Another go to dish I like to order at any Taiwanese restaurant is their beef noodle soup. I like the soup base with some vinegar and the tender beef briskets. The noodles itself is filling soup is always comforting.
Three Spice Stewed Chicken 10.50: Ordering Three spice chicken at restaurants only makes sense. Even though it can easily be made at home, it never seems to carry the same breath of wok and I never want to flambe in my kitchen. This dish was not too salty which was nice and chicken was tender and meaty.
Wonton In Red Chili Oil 6.50: I like the sweet red chili oil that carries some punch. Adding that to some wontons are delicious. This appetizer is a nice break amongst the plethora of deep fried snacks.
Tea Wok Omelette Rice 11.99: A Japanese style omelette with fried rice underneath and tomato sauce covering. A good option if you are looking for a saucy alternative to fried rice.
Tea Wok Shaved Ice with lots of topping options:
- Red bean
- Condensed milk
- Pearl barley
- Mixed beans
- Grass jelly
- Lemon jelly
- Green beans
- Coconut jelly
Tea Wok offers a good variety of food choices. From snacks and bubble tea to hearty noodle bowls and hot pots. It is busy during lunch time and weekdays. Weekends tend to be quieter without students and office workers.
