Western Lake Chinese Seafood Restaurant

4989 Victoria Dr Vancouver, BC

Food Rating: 8.5/10

I had the day off today, and decided to go to dim sum! I don’t go very often although it’s one of my favourite meals to eat…I see it as the Chinese equivalent to “brunch” and who doesn’t like brunch? My must-orders are always Shiu Mai, Pan Fried Eggplant with Shrimp Paste, and Steamd Rice Rolls with Prawns, although I honestly don’t think there’s a single item on a dim sum menu that I don’t like. Portion-wise, all of the dumplings are much bigger than at most dim sum places, and I thought the prices were very decent. It got pretty busy with people waiting outside around 11am, so I’m glad I went early at 10am. My favourite thing turned out to be the sticky rice (no surprise, I love rice!). I’ve had dinner here before as well, and enjoyed the food.
