i love having tea here.. their dim sum always tasted good.. but i never tried their dinner until now.. which turned out to be a very pleasant experience.. especially with my 3 girlfriends..

we ordered 三和菜 + a dish.. & it included an appetizer dish in the 三和菜, for which the size was big enough to be a main course..

they gave us dessert at the end too.. i couldn't remember what that was, but i remembered it tasted good too..

i think this restaurant is very suitable for people who doesn't want to cook after whole-day work.. the food tasted good & big in portion.. & the prices were reasonable..

LG & i always miss 元氣壽司 in Hong Kong.. & when we found out this restaurant while shopping @ Bloor, we decided to give it a try..

coz we were late for lunch that day, there weren't much choices on the "train".. we picked up some & ordered some more from the menu.. we tried salmon, tuna, ika, scallop, etc..

well.. it won't be comparable to 元氣, as the food were quite expensive & the quality was just so-so.. however, by stacking up the plates made us feel like we were back in HK..

LG's colleague recommended this restaurant to us.. said that they have a very good Crab Fried Rice..

we first had the Conch Soup.. it had a very strong flavor, a bit too condensed.. not as good as the one we had in Hisui..

we had the Spicy Salmon Sashimi.. it's raw salmon, seaweed, quail egg & green onion w/ spicy sauce.. it's not very spicy, but very salty..

we ordered some sushi & rolls as well.. Uni, Mirugai (Giant Clam), Ika, Spicy Scallop.. but the seaweed was not cripsy at all..

Crystal Salmon Roll.. Fresh Salmon, avocado, onion, flying fish roe, tempura bit w/ home made sauce.. it didn't have rice in it.. quite special..

& for sure we tried their "Famous" Crab Fried Rice.. HOWEVER, we were VERY disappointed at it.. it's like the Hong Kong style Friend Rice, just simply put the crab over the rice.. there was no Crab taste in the rice..

while we were having dinner, there was a man walking into the restaurant, trying to sell flowers to the customers.. we saw him walking from one restaurant to another one, seems like it's very normal in this neighborhood as the waiters didn't stop him.. hmm..
anyway, i highly doubt that we'll ever revisit this restaurant again..
