Pearl Castle - Continental Centre
Pearl Castle is a casual Taiwanese restaurant popular for their Bubble Tea, drinks, Taiwanese snacks, and hot pots. Pearl Castle operates various locations in Metro Vancouver, with locations in Richmond Centre, Burnaby, and Surrey. I've reviewed their other locations in Richmond Centre and Burnaby. The location I'll be reviewing today is located in Continental Centre, which is a plaza across from Aberdeen Centre.
This was great! The exterior batter was fried perfectly, and had a great crunch. The sauce they use is a sweet honey based soy sauce that complimented the pork very well. The pork is referred to as fermented due to the fact that is was marinated in fermented bean curd.
The fried rice was alright. They definitely didn't skimp on the ingredients, and the portion side was large, but it was a bit oily. However I liked how it wasn't too salty, which allowed the flavours of the egg and green onion to come through.
I was expecting this to be a frappe with pudding on the bottom, but I guess I was wrong! It was on the sweeter side, but you could always ask for half sweet. The frappes at Pearl Castle are very thick, creamy, and milky, so I would suggest sharing if you're also ordering a meal, cause this was really filling haha.
