Yang Chow Fried Rice

This simple dish is one of my favourites. My favourite are from the food stalls at Aberdeen Food Court, but sometimes it's a bit far to drive from downtown. Any places close to downtown or Vancouver you guys suggest that do a good job of this?

I tried "Hot Delivery" on Cambie last night and they overcooked it and everything tasted burnt.

Cafe Gloucester

Try to go during mini meal times. Regular price is pretty expensive compared to other cha chan tengs

Boss or Maxim's in Chinatown might do a decent job.

Congee Noodle House on Broadway is another suggestion.

Even a complete noob like me can make this dish.

Leftover rice + eggs + mix in whatever ingredients you want. Throw it in a pan/wok and done.

Before you go to Hon's, call to make sure they aren't still closed down. This pic was from the end of February so it's pretty recent. I was having Chinese food cravings during work and they were slapped with lots of papers on their front door...

^LOL is that the Robson location?

Called in for take out recently. They said they were doing renos. I guess it's for sanitation reasons.

I'll never forget the time I was driving behind the Hon's in Richmond, and was behind a delivery truck. The guy dropped a bucket of some sort of powder [salt or MSG or something] on the floor of the truck and proceeded to use his hand to scoop all the powder back off the floor and bumper back into the bucket, put the lid back on, and went about with the delivery.

So the only surprising part to me is that it took this long for them to get shut down

As much as people say this is something you could easily make at home, I don't think most home appliances are capable of achieving the same "wok hei" as compared to what is possible at the level of any restaurant.

unless you've got a cast iron wok that was seasoned with 2 generations of constant cooking, you can't really replicate that flavour

just season with a little lead, and let some canola oil burn in the wok for an hour

You're comparing a wet/saucy rice vs. a dry fried rice, so...it makes it a bit of a moot point.
