The noodles are overpriced at $18.80! Costs a small fortune!

QUALITY:
Dim Sum is satisfactory overall but portion size compared
to similar restaurants like Western Lake seems small.

SERVICE:
Bad-Poor service. Asked two different servers for a second
serving of hot sauce. Neither of them brought any hot sauce!

VERDICT:
If you are desperate for Dim Sum in the mall
in a sit-down restaurant setting, this is your only option.
Other options are Neptune at Station Square, Crystal Mall,
or Chef Tony in the Food Court at Metrotown.
CASH, DEBIT, CREDIT.

AUSSIE BBQ AND EGG BURGER AT MCDONALD’S CANADA – VANCOUVER FOOD REVIEWS – GUTOM.CA

#WorldTasteTour #McDonalds #FastFood #FoodReview

McDonald’s Canada is offering a unique summer promotion.
‘World Taste Tour’ June 18 – July 29, features international
flavors China, Italy, Australia, Mexico, and France.

These are the last two items on the World Taste Tour at McDonald’s Canada.

Aussie BBQ + Egg Burger
Egg, Beet chips, cheese, lettuce,
smoky BBQ sauce, brioche-style bun.

Nice amount of cheese, egg. Crispy chips were good.
The brioche bun was nice and warm.
The burger patty was a good temperature.

French Crème Brûlée McFlurry
Vanilla soft serve, caramelized sugar topping
and Crème Brûlée sauce.

The French Crème Brûlée McFlurry was very good.
But some of the sugar topping was too hard and
bad for the teeth!

Overall, the Aussie BBQ Burger and
the French McFlurry are surprisingly good!

The McDonald’s dining experience definitely varies at each location, and time of day. This location was at Burnaby Metrotown, and the quality was pretty good, considering it is fast-food.

UNCLE TETSU’S JAPANESE CHEESECAKE

Uncle Tetsu’s Japanese Cheesecake is officially open at Metrotown Mall in Burnaby. The international franchise has legions of fans waiting 2 hours in line just to get a taste of Japanese style delight, and other baked goods on their menu.

The Japanese Cheesecake is the obvious star of the show. It can be best described as light, and melts in your mouth.

1 cheesecake is $13.00 and is good for 2 or 3 people.

The Honey Madeleines 4-pack is $7.50.
These Madeleines, were not warm, or soft at the time. They were more like muffins.

The Rusks, were unavailable/sold out at the time of this video.

Be prepared to wait almost 2 hours in line.

Overall this is a nice unique dessert that is a welcome addition.

BOSTON PIZZA STATION SQUARE BURNABY

Boston Pizza is all kinds of terrible.

Terrible pricing. Terrible quality.

What We Ordered
– Deluxe Large Pizza
– MVB hamburger with extra patty.

Cold fries, tasteless burger patties, overpriced pizza.

The pizza was tasty as it is Boston Pizza speciality, but it was mostly average compared to Dominos, Pizza Hut, Papa Johns.

Boston Pizza is the kind of place where you know it’s not very good, but you go anyway.
