Dim sum in Richmond is pretty much a given when you’re in town. There seems to be an infinite amount of restaurants to choose from and things get heated when you start asking what everyone’s favourite dim sum place is in town. I couldn’t decide so I let my Van friends pick the spot. We ended up going to Fisherman’s Terrace, which is conveniently located in Aberdeen Mall. Woo Asian central! Hit up Dasoi afterwards to get all your cheap Asian goodies that you never knew you needed/existed.
Parking is free for the first three hours but make sure you don’t go over! Vancouver and their damn parking insanity. Fisherman’s Terrace was packed when we came on a Saturday morning but luckily, my friend had made a reservation so we were seated fairly quickly. They give you a menu to check off the dishes you want (no carts). There were five of us so we went to town.
Steamed shrimp dumpling with dried scallop and spinach ($5.95)
These were a nice change from our usual ordering. Again, packed to the brim with filling and the spinach gave it an extra bit of flavour.
E-fu mein noodles ($16.00)
These noodles weren’t impressive at all, especially for the price. Definitely stick with the dim sum menu if you’re there early. I don’t remember them having much taste, if any.
