Neptune Seafood Restuarant
My dad's gotten so use to $2 dim sum at South Ocean he refuses to go anywhere else for dim sum now lol! I REALLY regret introducing South Ocean to him lol..because it means I can't try out any new dim sum restos with him anymore! :(
Anyways, he really wanted to go to yum cha that day so we resorted to going to Neptune Seafood Restaurant instead LOL. And guess what? We didn't even order any dim sum dishes...*facepalm* He thought $5+ for har gow was unreasonable so he insisted that we order off the regular menu instead! This happened the last time we came here too haha, we ordered a lobster set instead cause he thought the dim sum dishes were too pricey lmao
You can check out my previous review of Neptune here where we got a killer deal on lobsta! http://www.vancitynoms.com/2014/05/neptune-seafood-restaurant-surrey.html
I'll probably be posting in the afternoon now, because I've been waking up really late since winter break started, and right after lunch I have to practice piano...*sigh*
Stir Fried Pork Jowl Vermicelli3.5/5 stars
It looks really simple but it was actually pretty good! Large portioned, with generous slices of tender chicken throughout! The vermicelli was al dente and didn't stick together, and delicately seasoned. There was also some green onions throughout which added an extra punch of flavour!
Sichuan Style Sautéed Pork3.5/5 stars
This was really tasty! I though the pork belly slices were sliced a tad bit too thin though haha. The pork belly pieces were tender and chewy. The sauce actually wasn't spicy at all, it was more salty-sweet, with a hint of spiciness at the end!
Szechuan Diced Beef Shank
This was disappointing, the beef shank was a bit too hard for my liking and flavour wise, it was rather one note, heavy on the chillis. The portion size was generous for the price and I liked the plate it came in LOL!
Starbucks Gingerbread Loaf!!
Here's what I had for breaky the other day hehe, which totally got me into the holiday spirit!! Super soft, moist, with a strong gingerbread flavour!! The icing is pretty awesome and I love how there was bits of orange on top! You guys should try it out if you haven't already!! :D
