Sightseeing was not a requirement when my husband and I planned our trip to Richmond, BC, Canada. When the border service officer asked why we were crossing the border, we simply replied, “to eat!”
We had approximately 24 hours to spend in Richmond and our goal was to fill our bellies with as much food as possible. This is all because we’re never satisfied with Asian food in the Seattle area (everything is way too salty). Canadians must have stricter laws when it comes to sodium consumption, because all of their food tends to be on the less salty side.
Here’s a sample of what we ate.
We arrived around lunch time and decided to start with Southeast Asian cuisine. We went to Tropika at Lansdowne Centre.
They even debone the fish for you at the table!
After lunch we got on the SkyTrain and hopped off at Aberdeen Centre, an Asian style mall. After checking out all of the cute shops, I decided to get bubble waffles and bubble tea! You can find bubble waffles and bubble tea everywhere in Richmond. For the first time, I tried the regular vanilla bubble waffle. The second time, I got the half oreo and half peanut flavored bubble waffle. I’m in love with these and could eat them everyday!
For dinner, my husband and I decided to visit the Yaohan Centre food court. Too many choices!!
After calling it a day, we went to our hotel to plan what we would eat the next day. Since we had dim sum in Vancouver last time, we decided to go with Taiwanese style cuisine for lunch.
We went to Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle in Aberdeen Centre, and it was the best decision ever made! Their championship braised beef with noodles in spicy soup made me want to quit everything and move to Richmond immediately!
My husband got the clear soup and was also satisfied.
Some extras we ordered, also very good!!
We’ll definitely be going back to Richmond very soon to try dim sum, bbq pork, and more!
