Sun Sui Wah, Vancouver

Address 102 Alderbridge Place, Richmond, Canada Map, Tel (604) 273-8208 Call,

Chinese food in general and dim sum in particular are particularly competitive in Vancouver and nearby Richmond. Sun Sui Wah has managed to be among the best restaurants in town for years. I was amazed not only by the sheer variety and number of dishes available, but also the quality. Barbequed pork in pastry was moist and almost buttery, shu-mai were packed with flavor, and after a valiant effort, I feel like I've sampled a mere 5 to 10 percent of the available options. Desserts too are well suited for western tastes. My favorite is the tapioca custard with pastry top. Open every day for lunch and dinner, reservations accepted.

There is also a location at 3888 Main Street, Vancouver, BC V5V 3N9, (604) 872-8822
