Location: 1st Avenue Marketplace, 302-2800 East 1st Avenue, Vancouver, BC
Meal: Fish done two ways combo (don't know what type of fish cause it was ordered in Chinese), half a bbq duck.
Atmosphere: Loud, really loud.
Service: It was not bad, they even changed my plate once because of all the fish bones. Refilled the teapots when signalled.
Bottom line: I came here with the expectation that I was going to be having this Peking duck combo where I would eat the skin with Chinese wraps. Obviously, we didn't get that and we ordered the fish done two ways instead and half a duck. The duck was pretty decent but there was a tiny bit of gameness to it. The skin was fried to perfection though.
The fish done two ways. The first dish was some sort of batter fish doused in a sauce which made the deep fried soggy. It came with some type of lettuce, bean curd, and a whole lot of fish bones. I really hate fish bones so I didn't eat too much of this.
The second fish dish was more the meat with baby gailan which was ok. I wasn't super wowed by anything.
Dinner was capped off with red bean soup.
Out the door price: $80 plus tip
Repeat: Will give dim sum a shot but dinner is a hard pass for next time.
Final Rating: 3/5
