I am so in love with their steam buns. Aside from it is only 2.50 CAD per piece, it is so big that one piece could get you stuff pretty good. The Chicken deluxe is by far my personal favorite.

Dumplings to die for. Over ordered but was offered a doggy bag. Loved it. Chow mien was a bit bland, only a bit though.

Walked into this restaurant to grab some dinner. This is a Jing Kong style cafe, where they serve the traditional Chinese bak d goods and they have the sandwiches and noodles associated with that in Hong Kong. Overall it was a great meal.

With the recent exodus of massive new building
projects hitting the neighbourhood, Chinatown; which
has always been one of the city's most vibrant areas;
is even more buzzing and buoyant than ever before.
Playing host to some of the city's best pan-Asian
cuisine, from fusion food to traditional home-cooking,
Chinatown has remained faithful to its roots as a
space which clambers with shop signs and welcomes
