Once again, we joined together with our communal Chinese dining group. This time we went for a more traditional style affair.

Things started off with breaded shrimp balls served with both tofu and eggplant deep fried underneath/onto it. It was fairly standard and went down well. The sweet chips with honey (a dessert they served to us first since it was fresh), however, was not good and an overly sweet assault on my taste buds.

I thoroughly honey garlic spareribs served with more shrimp balls. The steamed tofu and egg white with diced seafood was soft and easy to eat with many different elements making for a good combination.

I thought the house special crab with noodles was quite good. I love noodles with my seafood and it was tasty, filling, and very saucy.

The stir fried beef with peppers and steamed buns was decent. I ate it up like a Chinese soft taco. The beef was a little on the thick side and chewy.

The deep fried sole fillet on brocoli was a good enough as standard seafood and veggie combination dish.  I refrained from the deep fried duck wrapped in taro due to my aversion to taro, but it seemed crispy on top and tender inside.

I enjoyed most of the desserts including the baked tapioca pudding with red been inside. Janice wasn't too impressed with the traditional tofu pudding. The deep fried green tea sticky rice balls (right) with black sesame inside was fairly delicious with its rich sesame flavour in addition to being very green.

I was fairly satisfied with the traditional Chinese meal altogether. Most of the dishes were well prepared and came quickly. The servers were friendly, genial, and had a sense of humour. Although not among the top our our Chinese dinners, it was one of the more comforting.
