The Boss

Date Visited: December 14 2014
Address: Metrotown 4720 Kingsway  Burnaby, BC
Type of Restaurant: Chinese
Price Range: $$
Ambiance (out of five)/Setting/Design/service: 4/5 – service was quick, design – newly renovated so everything still felt new
Overall: 6.5/10
(1-4: will never come back, 5: pass (I’m okay with a tinier morsel), 6: acceptable, 7: okay, 8: good, 9: Wow! Please enlarge my morsel. 10: Perfection. I could eat a morsel of this every day!)
Will come back? Maybe for a quick bite
What I ate:
Milk Tea
  • 6.5/10
  • Milk tea was not smooth enough
  • It had an almost bitter flavour to it, left an after taste
  • The mug was the highlight of the milk tea – it left the milk tea hot for a long time yet the outside was cold so as to not burn yourself
Beef fried rice noodle with satay
  • 6.5/10
  • The beef was overcooked
  • The rice noodles lacked wok taste
  • Luckily it wasn’t too oily
  • I would have preferred it if there were some green onions or bean sprouts to brighten the dish up
  • The portion was also on the small side (I find their portions disproportional – the table next to us ordered the same thing but theirs was much bigger)
Breakfast set B – Beef with macaroni and toast
  • 6.5/10
  • The beef could have been more fall apart tender
  • The macaroni (HK macaroni is supposed to be more overcooked than usual) was way overcooked and too soggy
  • This toast is my favourite kind, just wished it could have been crunchier
Toast with coconut
  • 7/10
  • Not too oily which was god
  • Couldn’t really taste the sweetness of the coconut
  • The batter on the outside of the toast was light and lacked crunchiness
  • The entire dessert was not too heavy and not too sweet which was good
Things to Improve on: Flavours, consistent portions
Summary: Good place for a quick meal. Food is so, so and service is okay.
