We drove all the way from Burnaby to check this place out after reading the great review on Chow Times http://chowtimes.com/2010/05/27/nine-dishes-on-960-kingsway-vancouver/
Located on the boring part of Kingsway between Fraser and Knight Street, we got there around 6:30 on a Monday night. The owner "If" sat us down at a table and brought us the four menus which have nine dishes each (get it?). I heard of the .99 skewers so we ordered a few of each. I was expecting them to taste like the Tropika skewers or japanese yakitori but they didn't have that taste; they we kind of bland. Fortunately, this was the only letdown.
We also ordered the Tofu Pudding with Meat Sauce ($5.99) a spicy vinagary dish with soft tofu, green onions and chopped up chinese pickles. This was super tasty and I ended up dipping everything else in the sauce.
We also had the Deep Fried Lotus Root with Minced Meat ($3.99), four crunchy creations with some minced pork (I think) sandwiched inside. Nice texture and taste (not spicy).
Another tofu/cilantro dish was ordered; this one was kind of cold but spicy. It was great on top of rice. Rice, by the way, is free and self serve; so is the tea. A nice change from the usual.
We order the non-spicy Won Ton soup which had seaweed in the soup and was very good.
Total bill came to $30 and we were stuffed and happy. Service was slow but friendly. If you don't mind getting up for rice and tea refills, then you'll be okay. The place had filled up within the hour we were there. Word is getting around on this gem.
