#101 Deep fried white bun - 2

J's comment > not bad; deep fried crisp exterior good but could be even crisper and thinner; center could be even softer

#31 Baked egg tart - 2

J's comment > not bad; flaky tart shell w soft center; good but this level of yumminess is the norm in Vancouver

#05 Siu Mai: Steamed pork dumpling w tobiko - 2

J's comment > not bad; juicy; wished there was more skin wrapper though

#11 Steamed chicken feet w spicy sauce - 2

J's comment > feet not exactly hard but could be even more tender; sauce not spicy at all

#78 Deep fried taro dumpling w minced pork - 2

J's comment > a good fry on the exterior; not much pork filling though

#17 Traditional baked pork pastry - 2

J's comment > pastry barely flaky, center similar to the taro dumpling above, but much less mushy

#22 Steamed rice roll w chinese donut & seafood - 2

J's comment > avg; donut not soggy nor the crispest chinese donut ever; rice roll OK; seafood non-existent

#54 Pan fried green bean w minced pork - 2

J's comment > green beans tender and not stringy; flavors avg

#32 Steamed egg yolk paste bun - 2

J's comment > egg yolk filling center liquidy but not enough; way too much bun to filling ratio, even though bun was soft; Fraser Court's better

#02 Har Gao: Steamed prawn dumpling - 2

J's comment > wrapper thick; prawn not exactly juicy, not much flavor; Golden Harvest and Fisherman's Terrace much much better 

#20 Deep fried shrimp spring roll - 2

J's comment > spring roll on the crisp side, but not as crispy as it could be; shrimp had no flavor

#19 Steamed ribs & taro w black bean sauce - 2

J's comment > both ribs and taro OK, tender; not much sauce

#23 Steamed rice roll w shrimp - 2

J's comment > avg; rice roll not much to say about; shrimp no flavor whatsoever

#27 Steamed rice roll w beef - 2

J's comment > avg; rice roll as boring as the shrimp rice roll above; beef equally flavorless

#52 Deep fried crispy tofu - 2

J's comment > barely crispy; there are way more and way better deep fried tofu in Vancouver eg. 
Golden House

#51 Panfried eggplant w minced pork & special spicy sauce - 2

J's comment > eggplant tender but bland; didn't get the pork at all

#18 Deep fried squid w house seasoning - 2

J's comment > batter way too thick; could barely taste the squid - the squid was flavorless... I think I'm sensing a trend here; definitely no comparison to Golden House

#80 Peanut & sesame pancake - 2

J's comment > tough and thick pancakes w a blah blend of the peanut & sesame advertised - not flavorless this time, but equally boring
