In a state of hibernation. My backlog has long become unsustainable. Will probably tweet more and write less full-length stuff.


Ningtu Restaurant

In the search for a decent Shanghai-style breakfast place, my family in Vancouver appears to have settled on Ningtu Restaurant. Though it's not as amazing as Toh Yuen of the past, it's still pretty good.

pan fried pork buns The Chinese donut was fresh, hot, and crisp, but a little on the big side; they were tough to handle. The rice cakes were very good - chewy without getting too stuck together. The sticky rice was pretty good but nothing too special. The pan-fried buns were very nice - extremely hot inside, and nicely browned on the bottom. Ningtu isn't quite Toh Yuen but it's still a very acceptable option.
