Address:  5682 Fraser St.  Vancouver, BC V5W2Z3
Type of Restaurant: Chinese, Cantonese
Price Range: $$
Ambiance (out of five)/Setting/Design/service: 2.5/5 – typical Chinese restaurant – loud, tacky décor, service was really bad (server would ignore us)
Recommended: Hand Shredded Chicken
Overall: 7.5/10
(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 – depends on family gatherings
What I ate:
Peking Duck 2 course
Lettuce Wraps
  • 7/10
  • Decent amount of filling given
  • The filling was on the saltier side, tasted somewhat like MSG
  • The duck was smoky and I liked the crunchiness of the vegetables in the dish
  • Good ratio of duck to vegetables
Sliced duck wrap
  • 6.5/10
  • The wraps were just a smidge too thick but I appreciated the fact that they made them to order
  • The duck was very crunchy but I would have liked it if it had more meat attached to it and if there was more fat to add an extra layer of flavour
Hand Shredded Chicken
  • 8/10
  • Perfect balance of sweet, tangy, savoury
  • The crunchy texture of the crispy bits on top to the chewiness of the jellyfish was a really good combination
  • The shredded chicken was not dry and held onto the flavour of the sauce well
  • The sesame added a nice aromatic flavour
Summary: Decent place for Hand Shredded Chicken. Portions are good but beware of the service.
