Strike - Richmond!


  I only have school 3 days a week this term, guess what I've been doing on my days off? ...I've been staying at home! *le gasp* I've turned into such a homebody!! (Not that there's anything wrong with being a homebody.)

  As a result...I haven't been eating out as much. These days I'm just too exhausted to go out (even for food) ~ much to the delight of my parents (not going out = saving money.)

  Anyways, I went to Strike the other day with my dad when we were Richmond!! I practically go to their Kits location every other week now!!

  When we walked in...guess who was there? The guy who works at their Kits location!! It was semi-awkward because he recognized me...and my dad was like "Who's that guy?!" 

 Strike's chinese name is "Puo dien!!" Puo Dien roughly translates to "Run Down Shop." Hilarious I know. I guess that would explain the tattered menus? My dad was the one who told me (I can't read chinese!)

Sakura Shrimp Fried Rice

3.5/5 stars

  This dish is only available at their Richmond location!! The Kits location doesn't serve fried rice. This was quite nice!! It was loaded with sakura shrimp, which gave it a lot of texture!! It was quite fragrant too, with a ton of wok hey going on. 




3 Cup Chicken Set
Ha, it says "Puo Dien" on the handle!

3.5/5 stars

  My dad had their 3 cup chicken!! Visually, the combo is a lot different than the one at their Kits location! The chicken came in a cast iron skillet, the one at their Kits location comes in a regular plate!! As a result, this definitely looked liked it had more chicken!! Taste and texture wise, it was pretty much the same!! The chicken looked the same, with familiar notes of ginger and basil.



I spotted my last name!! "Lu" See it?



Huh, I just noticed Zomato used my picture (from Strike Aberdeen) as the background for this Strike (on Garden City Road!)

  1. So THAT's why their menus are so tattered ! I thought they couldn't afford to update their menus ;-)

  2. I do spot your last name! I wonder what meat with your last name tastes like though. (I've never seen that dish before.)

    2. @RaymondZeng If you want to taste my last name, try Lu Ro Fan (minced pork on rice) LOL!! The "Lu" is pronounced the same!

      @LotusRapper LMAO, I am quite the "fan tong" ;)

    3. I just googled Lu Rou Fan (evidently, I'm not that familiar with Taiwanese dishes) and it looks delicious. I can't wait to taste your last name!

    1. LMAOO!!
      Is he paying for the sushi too? ;)

    2. Yeah! Maybe he meant you two should finally show your faces at a blogger meet up! ;)

      You guys are the two most mysterious bloggers - as far as I know no ones met either one of you!

    3. hehehe I like being mysterious!! ;)

      ~ One of these days I'll show my face ;D

    4. Two most mysterious bloggers... Now, I feel like this spy who goes undercover into sushi restaurants and has to gather clues and evidence of how good the food is without being noticed. Actually, that sounds like pretty much what I do.

      I suppose I'll show my face once I decide that it's beautiful enough to show to other food bloggers.

    5. LOL omg...dying!!! "once I decide that it's beautiful enough to show to other food bloggers."

      Don't worry Raymond, your face is plenty beautiful ^^

    6. Oh and will you and Drunken Master show your faces too, Food Wench ? ;-)

      I vote for a non-Chowhound chowdown among you mysterious food bloggers. I'll be security ;-)

      Delete
  4. Haha, when you put it that way, spying and food blogging do seem pretty similar, Raymond! Not sure how undercover I am once I break out the giant camera though.... ;)

    I've been fortunate enough to meet a number of bloggers now (including some where I got super nervous - it was like meeting a celebrity!). Drunken Master unfortunately hasn't been able to make any of the meet ups yet, because of his busy work and traveling schedule. But I'll get him to one yet!

    I would make sure to be there if there was one with RaymondsFoodAdventures AND VancityNoms! And Lottusrapper too, of course ;)

    2. YOU GUYS ARE ALL FRIENDS ON FACEBOOK WITHOUT ME?!

      That's it. I'm immediately dropping all the work I'm supposed to be doing today, and making it my mission to find you all on facebook. Jobs aren't important anyway.

    3. LOLOL "jobs aren't important anyway."

    2. As I said, I am shipping these two... :P

      Sure, my comment resulted in silence and dropped jaws. But, everybody seems to be cruising along with it! Paying for the meal of you two? Sure, next time I am in Vancouver. But, you might regret it!
