my favourite right now for convenience sake is e-canteen.
it's pretty much always open and the prices are nice

not the cleanest place though...

Chop: steak place with awesome decor. It's like a fancy cactus club. reviews are on the board.
E-canteen: super cheap value, their fried rice / noodles are decent, but their choose 1,2,3 our of steak/lamb/chicken/fish combo really gets me sick each time. I always get food poisioning afterwards.
Pho Lan (# 3 and granville) is my favorite one.
hakkasan: would be the decent place for lunch
pearl tea castle: hyped but it's not bad and decent.
taco Louie: lansdowne mall for mexican food.
HKYK: all you can eat hot pot that's decent.
Shota: all you can eat sushi that's a TAD better than richmond sushi
Shanghai river: shanghai food that's not bad.
Mad greek:westminister Gilbert
Yaohan mall: cheapest 3 course or even 4 course meal u can buy during closing time.

so many more but these are the things i can think of.

My regular places in richmond:


Nanchu for their monkfish liver and to drink in general.

Wo Fung (Aberdeen Food Court) for their chicken wings :P

Chop (great patio, awesome drinks, bad food)

Manzo (Alexandria) is good for small bites..robata.. their chicken skin is dope

Cao Van (Buswell and Saba) - best bun bo hue ever

Top Shanghai (good, but greasy shanghainese food.... be prepared to wait for a good 30 minutes on weekends though)

Shady Island (Steveston) - I only eat their seafood chowder... omg drool

Mui Garden - for their beef curry and flavoured rice

Pajo's (Steveston) - fish and chips

Jang Mo Jib (Alexandria) for their pork bone stew

BBQ place under superstore - for a quick lunch of bbq pork and rice

Well Tea - Taiwanese BBT place but I like their ketchup omelette fried rice

Wait.

Let me get this straight.

You're recommending E-Canteen based on super cheap value however, you get sick each time resulting in food poisoning afterwards? Something isn't right.

i used to go there for lunch all the time. i stopped going because the service just kept getting worse every time. got sick once too. i had to ask for our drinks like 5-6 times the servers kept blowing us off saying it was coming. didnt come till most of us were already doen our food.

i like prata man. its not the cleanest by white ppl standards, but the food is on point. its also cheap.

ecanteen sucks balls

went there yesterday. Dirty ,disgusting and ghetto. I'd rather go to a clean place to eat that isn't furnished by Ikea.

When my milk tea came, it looked like someone took a sip ot of it. It was 75% full. Asked the waitress to take it back and she gave me such a dirty look like i insulted her mother. Who needs this shit. No tip and i'm never going back. fuck that place in the ass.

Also, Li Do breakfast ftw

While I do go to Wo Fung when I happen to be at Aberdeen when it comes to Fung Sa chicken wings I shall stick to the person that started it all in Richmond. Yes, the old ass place that used to exit in the old Aberdeen Mall which is located upstairs from that mall that has umm UFO and what used to be Pop Toy where you buy fake games. Id give an address but fucking google isn't loading for me right now. Fucking internet.

wow, some great posts.
jam bo jib, pajos, and how could i forget Kam Do
and yes, icemiko: the TW place beside Richmond Sushi is dope.

bcrdukes: ecanteen has shitty combos, but all the rest of the fried rice / noodles are still great.

i know i'm going to get flamed for this but Mui Garden curry was ok, i don't find it epic. However, i did go to tropica in aberdeen (we had their curry and it was pretty darn good), then again, i went with the owner so... maybe that's why.

For good sushi try Tokyo Joe's on Ackroyd, next the plaza with Nando's. Big rolls, and big pieces of sashimi. They also have all the usuals, like rice dishes and such.
Really good spider roll!

Also the shanghai place in Aberdeen has pretty good shanghai buns (in the food court)

hmm what else? For dinner I usually go to Manzo (scallop pizza..mmm), ayce hot pot, get some takeout at steveston pizza, alleluia for cheap cafe food, well tea for bbt and food, twinkle for bbt and snacks...

shanghai restaurant with the big vase outside in the plaza with td and staples across from richmond centre has super good shanghai buns and crab with rice cakes (so goooodd)


also, anyone know of a good donair place in richmond? Have some trouble finding any donair places at all here...
