Aberdeen Food Court - more than half way through


Leung Kee

3030 - 4151 Hazelbridge Way (Aberdeen Food Court)

Leung Kee (Aberdeen Centre) on Urbanspoon

Food: 3.5
Price: Cheap

I always stop by Aberdeen when in Richmond, because I love their diverse food court and Daiso store. The food stalls that I have already tried are: Strawberry Cones, Ajijiman Hanabi, Beard Papa, Wo Fung Dessert, Cafe D'lite Express, Tim's Dessert House and Basil Leaf. Now with the newly added two below, I can safely say I tried more than half now.
The food at Leung Kee would be the typical HK style cafe food. They have quite a few special on everyday for $6.50 and that include a cold drink. One special thing about this place worth mentioning is their call out numbering system, because once your order is ready, it simply appear on the TV screen seen in the above picture, so no yelling or calling required.
R went with one of their lunch special and it came with a HK style milk tea. Nothing much to report, other than that they put a bit too much sugar water, thus it was overly sweet.
The meal R ordered was the steamed spare ribs with Chinese sausage. I have to say, these ribs were very juicy and soft. They were meaty with little or no bones. The sausage was just average and a bit oily. They gave us plenty of well cooked jasmine rice. Overall, I liked this dish a lot, as it was good and plentiful.

Food: 3

I on the other hand decide to try a different food stall. I noticed the people at Shanghai Shanghai were making Xiao Long Bao fresh, so I immediately got in line, as I love XLB.
These XLB were a bargain in my opinion, you get 6 for only $4.50. The skin was relatively thin, and the soup inside was rather clear as well. The stuff was good, but not that best I've tried. All in all, these were definitely pretty good.I know I won't be full from just the XLB, so I ordered a Rice cake with Pork Chop for $5.75. The reason why I chose this dish was because it sounded like the dish I love from LuLu Cafe. Although it does sort of looked the same, but the rice cake was very different. These rice cake was still rather hard and chewy, they felt undercooked. The ribs on the other hand was good, it was juicy and flavorful. In the end, I ate all the ribs, but left quite a few rice cake untouched.

Overall, both food stall were pretty good, they all had their good and bad. If I had to choose one over the other, I would have to go with Leung Kee. But if taken into consideration all the food stalls at the food court, my favorite is still Wo Fung for their ever so delicious chicken wings, just thinking about it is making me hungry. :P

Actually I haven't been there for a long time. But I do recommend their sticky rice with rib. However it's not in their menu, it was written on a piece of paper on the wall. Do ask of it if you go, and hope you like it :)
