Ken’s Chinese Restaurant
1097 Kingsway, Vancouver
Ever heard of the Golden Dungeness Crab? Neither have I, until now. I was invited to a menu tasting by Chinese Bites with a few other Vancouver foodies last week to try a few of Ken’s famous Chinese dishes. Ken’s Chinese Restaurant serves Hong Kong style meals as well as traditional Chinese dishes.
Most Chinese meals starts with a soup, so here we have Fish Soup with Winter Melon & Dried Shrimp.
Next dish to come out is the award winning Golden Dungeness Crab.
The crab is deep fried than tossed with a sauce made of salted duck egg yolk, garlic , butter and Chinese Wine. The subtle saltiness from the salted duck yolk and the sweetness of the crab was a good combination.
Another award winning dish was the Lobster with Konnyaku in Hot Pot. It was cooked well; juicy, tender and flavourful.
Braised Fatty Pork Belly; wow was this ever tender and delicious! It was love at first bite.
More crab! This time it’s Crab with Garlic & Spicy XO Sauce. A very nice dish but I prefer the Golden Dungeness Crab.
Ken’s Specialty Chicken.
The last few dishes; Malaysia Style Fried Rice, Baked Seafood on Rice, Black Pepper Diced Beef Tenderloin and Pan Fried Chicken Fillet with Spicy Thai Sauce.
Overall a great place – food and service was excellent. I would love to come back and try the rest of the menu.
I would recommend:
Golden Dungeness Crab, Braised Fatty Pork and Lobster with Konnyaku in Hot Pot.
