After driving by often I finally tried this place and am happy I did. The people are super friendly and attentive.
Had the seafood hot chilli soup and it was extremely good. Everything was fresh and plentiful with a good amount of spicy. I'll be coming here more often than the pho places.
You would never notice this place if you drove by. Its in a small grocery store plaza and off to the side. The menu covers a variety of food including chinese dishes, pho and mini hot pots.
I highly recommend to mini hot pots. They are packed full of ingredients and are so flavorful. It also comes with rice or noodles and the portion is quite big considering its only $8.99
My favourite is the chili hot pot served with pork with rice.
Definitely worth going at least once. Because then you'll get hooked.
This family run restaurant is easy to miss if you don't know it's there.You choose your soup. I think there are 4 or more varieties including curry flavored, fish, and homemade. Then you choose the type of protein which might be seafood or beef. The ordered meal consists of the soup, meat and vegetables in a hot pot with a side dish of one of 3 types of noodles of your choice. All for a very reasonable price. There are other things on the menu but the best deal is the hotpot soup and noodles. It's definitely worth a visit.
This non-discript restaurant is hidden away in the Parkcrest Shopping plaza near Broadway and Holdom Street in Burnaby. For some reason it doesn't stand out but it's called RED 6 RESTAURANT. My hubby and I have been there a few times and each time we've gone we've had the udon soup which has been very tasty and served hot. We've had the seafood udon hot pot which comes in a cast iron pot steeping hot with ample seafood such as shrimps, fishballs, mussels and veggies. I've had the homemade broth and the miso broth and both are good. There's a good variety such as BBQ pork, beef kimchi, chicken curry and pork. They also have rice dishes. Our udon soups were $6.99, well worth the price.
I believe this spot used to be a cafe/sandwich joint. Now it is a quiet, rather unassuming place to get perfectly decent udon/ hot pot, very reasonably priced. I had the seafood miso udon, and it came after a short wait, very hot, in its little cast-iron hotpot. The seafood was fresh and plentiful, and the udon (which i'm picky about) was the right thickness and chewiness, a big plus. They went a little heavy on the miso though, and the soup was rather salty, but tasty nonetheless. Accompaniments included some broccoli, enoki mushrooms, shrimp, squid, mussels, komabuku and kernel corn.
My feeling is that it's strictly about the food here though, there is little ambiance to speak of, nor (evidently) much heat -- the room was curiously cold, even colder than the sunny April day outside. Fortunately, after eating my lunch, i was nearly sweating. At $6.99 + tax, it was a pretty darned good deal!
