You could try Chaise on Main Street.

Kirin Richmond for Dim Sum Saturday.

10/10.

Good service (for a Dim Sum place)

Tasty and good food... and I love Kirin ALWAYS being consistently tasty (not just 80%... but 100% of the time).

LOL.

No, at Kirin, I asked for the bill.

But, if it is getting close to the "last-call" time of around 3PM, they do give you the bill automatically, which I do understand and am okay with.

Marutama Ramen i got "the works"

i really liked the noodles, but the soup wasn't rich enough for my liking. The cha-siu was too lean and dry too.

7/10

I went there last night too, got there at 6pm.

Portions are small and kinda pricey for a bowl of ramen. ($14 for a fully loaded one with seafood, 1 egg, thin slices of pork. Extra $1.25 for extra noodles.)

Taste is 7/10, I prefer pork-bone based ramen. (Kintaro FTW.)

Also, they didn't have any more pork gyozas and their Dashimaki(tamago cubes) by the time I got there, which was a pretty big disappointment.

**BEWARE** Their "spicy" is actually pretty damn spicy, take note.

I like abigails, but their quality has been dropping brutally fast lately, and that looks fucking hilariously bad. I'm not even a big fan of over presented food, but at least don't put the plate on the other side of the kitchen and throw the food onto it like that.

Chicken and waffles require space. Why cant you just use a round god damn plate?

haha no one's offended. I personally was just surprised they would make a plate look so bad. Clearly I had a reason to be surprised.

Still.... given how many chicken and waffle dishes there are out there, I would have expected a lot better.

I'd go with a small square plate or a round plate.
Waffle at the base and depending on the sizing, stack the chicken 2 at the base, and 1 draped across those, or do 1 on the base, and drape the second one across.

This would allow you to tear at the waffle slowly, but kind of use it at a plate catching the chicken cracklings and chicken juice as they dribble off your chin as you tear into that piece of chicken leaning over the plate.
This also gives you the option of pouring syrup over the whole shebang without any of it going to waste.


I wish I had a waffle maker now....

Kinemi’s Kitchen

Ordered their special for two ($24)

Sorry pictures have watermark as I am leeching them from my blog.











Service: 7.5/10 – Service was just okay. Can’t expect much as both wife & husband have to cook!

Food: 7.75/10 – The food served were pretty good. No complaint there.

Price: 8.5/10 – Dinner for two special for $24. Very good value for the food you get.

went to seasons in the park last night with the gf.

service was great, easily an 8.5-9/10 - server was great, kept complimenting my clothes and my gf and kept coming up to me saying he just happens to have another beer on his tray...I couldn't say no to beer hahaha.

food was pretty damn good.

had beef carpaccio and jumbo prawns for appys.

me and the gf each had the surf n turn as a main- 12oz steak and half lobster each, steak was done a perfect medium rare, lobster was perfect as well.

bill was pretty decent, before tip it was only 120$

give it a 9/10, would definitely go back again.

2 Chefs and a table (Richmond location)

Food: 7.5/10
Service: 1/10

Had to try this place out since I live so close to it and after reading reviews I had to try the chicken and waffles.

The gf and I arrived just pass 11am and we were the first people there. We wanted to sit next to each other on a 4 top table but the server would'nt allow it even though no one was in the restaurant. So whatever we just sat at a cramped 2 top. I can understand that you are probably expecting a lunch rush so I can let that go. Food took about 25 minutes to make after we ordered...but that was ok I can understand they just opened and might be a little behind on prep. What I did not appreciate was how when our food was ready and I clearly heard the chef say order up the plates were sitting on the hot pass for atleast 2 minutes(felt like 5!) even though no one else was in the restaurant!!! What's worst is the chef went over to the server and started chatting him up and not even mentioning again that the food was ready. The server was busy doing something on the computer which I could clearly see him playing with from the mirrors on the wall. I'm sorry but if the restaurant is empty and we are the only paying customers in the room you better drop what your doing and just deliver that god damn food right when its ready and then go back to do whatever the fu*k you were doing. It's not that hard its about the customer in the restaurant business.

Anyways beside the below than mediocre service the food was decent. Would of been better experience if we just got the food when it was ready.

Sadly I do not want to come back, but I probably will because its just so damn close by to my place and the food is pretty good too. I will probably just do take out next time.

Wo fung noodle house in Richmond 8/10

do you guys pay any tips when you leave?

For those of you who dont know, this place collects your money when you order just like at Mcdonalds so from what I have heard, you dont need to pay tips when leaving
