Not quite the same

This place started out as a small bakery/hot dish takeout place. It was the only one in the area of Fraser Street so businss became brisk and eventually it took over the space next door too and expanded with a sit down area, also selling various frozen items.

The variety of hot dishes are your basics, the chow meins, the fried rices, sweet and sour pork, etc. I really liked their rock salt spicy deep fried squid. Large tender pieces with a light batter. The buns have consistently been good up until recently. The hot dishes have changed and are not quite as good. My beloved squid was reduced to them using only baby tentacle pieces now, hardly worth a glance. The buns now all of a sudden have shrunk down to an unremarkable size, while prices remained the same. Recession buns.

Service depends on who you get. In the past, the asian lady owner (nowadays covered with poorly chosen eye shadow and lipstick) would cram the styrofoam containers up to the brim, but it's been years since that happened and now that she has built up a steady customer base, she levelled off those fish balls or what have you so that no pieces of food would exceed the height of the container rim. As more business came in, that woman became more of a snot too. Whether ordering or asking a question, try to deal with the other employees there instead, the saving grace.

A couple of other bakeries have sprung up in the area giving this place a run for it's money. Watch out for the lady owner, she might be wielding a rolling pin.
