Given the new restrictions on indoor dining in BC, one of the types of cuisines which will be impacted more are Chinese restaurants. Its not common to find one with a patio; so I was glad when a friend alerted me to Golden Seafood on Nanaimo Street. They have a nice big patio and serve dim sum outside – there’s a first for everything! Here is the menu:
The food was pretty good as was the service. From what I could tell, the dim sum was made in house. The siu mai and har gow were huge. Here is a pic of the siu mai with tuffle.
…and a few other items
I could taste a well seasoned wok in the noodles. The only thing I would not recommend are the XLB. Extremely thick skin and very little soup.
All in all this is a place I would return to, especially during indoor dining restrictions….eating dim sum outdoors on a nice sunny day is a great experience!
