This is a good sized room with nice booths many of which were occupied with folks enjoying their morning repast.
I had Chinese Ham Congee which is such an amazing way to start the day! Salty bits of ham and just a trace of sesame oil and why don't I eat this at home more often (I have made it with brown rice with decent results)? The kitchen had carefully garnished the bowl with ginger, green onion and a drizzle of oil. You have to love attention to detail!
I was tempted by Pan Fried Flying Fish, one of the specials listed under the acrylic table cloth (in fact, the whole menu is there at the table...not a bad idea when you think about it). And these were some tasty salty little guys. A little extra protein to go with my congee. Although more than contented, I was not able to pass by the bakery without buying a snack for later.
Perhaps the best Pineapple Bun I have had. I keep trying these things because everyone else seems to like them so much! A very good Portuguese Egg Tart and a Century Egg Puff ( I keep getting these because I am proud of myself for having discovered the allure). I have always wanted to try the Boss at Metrotown but there is always a line up. Why not try the original in Chinatown? A very good idea!
