Food for Thought: Chef Tony at Metrotown - Dim Sum in a Food Court is not the same


Eats Out of Context
Chef Tony at Metrotown
It felt very weird

The room was filled with voices gossiping, people catching up, and mothers chastising their young children to sit down and eat.  As I stared at my dim sum, I wonder what I had gotten myself into. 

Richmond’s Chef Tony’s new endeavor is a food court stall at Canada’s second largest mall.  Their eight piece combo enable to me to try the restaurant’s beloved dim sum offerings.

Just Wow! – Juke


Enjoyable Eats
Lip Smacking Good Fried Chicken
Nice Details at Juke

Not all restaurants begin their life running fast.  Sometimes it’s a cringe worthy wobbly mess of a start.  Eateries that survive and eventually thrive, figure it out and rapidly improve.

When I first visited Chinatown’s Juke, I was fairly disappointed.  The fried chicken was not good.  However, they had just opened, and there was something about the flavour of the ribs I really enjoyed.  I made notes, filed them away, and decided to return later to see if there was positive progression.
