Strike 破店 - Taiwanese in Richmond
#120 - 4751 Garden City Rd Richmond, BC V6X
Mmmm Taiwanese food. Vancouver has so far been my first and only place I've had the pleasure of enjoying taiwanese food. I don't exactly have reference to what 'authentic' Taiwanese food is, however if it's anything similar to what I've been tasting there.. then I'm all for it!
Last week when I was in Richmond, my friend took me to Strike - A Taiwanese +BBT restaurant for dinner before my flight back to Calgary.
We had 3 orders of fried items, first being their 'popular' popcorn chicken with basil, the squid tentacles with Mayo and their fried fish + rice combo! I really liked the three, none of them were dry and all had good flavouring!
The last dish that made it to our table was their black pepper Chicken + Noodles Sizzling Hot Plate combo and I'm very glad that it did. I love how, instead of spaghetti (which is what I'm used to getting) they used Chinese noodles for the hot plate. The combo comes with a fried egg + veggies.
The drink that I got was the cold Wintermelon Tea, I've been pretty hooked on it since I had it last time I was in Richmond. I can't seem to find it in Calgary though :(
The service at Strike was good, the waiter was attentive and even though they made a mistake on bringing us a wrong dish, they gave us no fuss and corrected for us immediately. The restaurant was a bit quiet at the time I was there, however I know they have a late night special menu where some items go 50% off! It's worth a visit if you're in the area next time! :)
