Tim Kee Kitchen

Tim Kee Kitchen Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato I called them up for take out. A Chinese lady picked up. I asked for the Chicken Chow Mein $7.50. She asked if I wanted it as a lunch special. Since I didn’t know about it (as I did not see it on Zomato), I asked. She was reluctant in explaining what it was and told me it was such and such $ (more than chow mein) for a special, and so you want, ok? No, I didn’t want that much for lunch and told her I only wanted the Chow Mein.

idearabbit-timkeekitchen2The place is a hole in the wall. Typical Chinese restaurant that looks run down, and maybe only 10 people can sit inside? There was no one there when I was there to pick up.

idearabbit-timkeekitchen1I was surprised to find a spring roll, though I later realized that it came with it :P But it was pretty burnt badly. Boo. The portion was huge! I couldn’t finish it, and ended up saving some for dinner. Taste was alright…

Another time, one of us ordered the Pan Fried Rice Noodles with Beef. I tried a bit, and it was slightly oilier, but I really liked the flavour a lot more! One of our staff did not feel good after consuming it, but the other staff and I were ok, so not sure if it was related to the food.

Ernest Ice Cream

Earnest Ice Cream Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato My friend has been requesting that we go check out this place ever since his friend gave him some ice cream from this place. It was around 10pm, but the place was lively with mostly young people enjoying their ice cream. It was a hipsterish venue, but kept clean, slick and modern.

10 flavours were written on the blackboard, as well as above the actual bucket of ice cream. The staff were really friendly, and she let my friend and I try out many flavours. But I have to say that the best was London’s fog. It was really strong and creamy. It’s speckled with what looks like real earl grey tea leaves… almost like eating a earl grey float.

idearabbit-ernest1idearabbit-earnest2idearabbit-earnest3idearabbit-earnest4For a single scoop for $5, the pint for $11 seemed like an awesome deal. I can’t eat that much ice cream at one time anyways, so being able to choose the amount, and when I want to eat was an attractive option. My friend and I both ended up getting a pint of London Fog each.

My friend asked why their ice cream was so good, and the staff replied saying that they use a lot of cream hehehe. Sorry, this is not a weight-friendly dessert place :P

idearabbit-earnest5I like their brand identity, and like the fact that if you return the jar with the lid, you get a $1 refund. I think it’s great that the packaging is reusable. I wish more places would do something similar. Though, I must admit, mine is still sitting on the counter, along with a glass bottle that I also need to return to a juicery place for refund. Not the most convenient, but if you go there frequently, it shouldn’t be a problem.

The trendy atmosphere, nice staff and the option to take home the ice cream gives this place a greater advantage than some of the other ice cream places. No wonder it’s so popular!

I would like to return, but I must refrain… until maybe a special occasion, as it’s too good, and I must watch the waist lines :P

Curry Express in Richmond Centre

Curry Express Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - ZomatoI’ve barely been to this mall, but was going to see a show later on, so my friend and I stopped by for a quick bite at the food court. Wow! I must say it’s a pretty impressive food court. Very modern, clean, bright and higher-end then – let’s say Metrotown. I liked how the different venues had a cohesive design so that it wasn’t all random.  It seemed to all work together, yet, each one was still kept it’s brand’s look.

idearabbit-curryexpress_richmond3 idearabbit-curryexpress_richmond4As with all other other Curry Express in mall food courts, the menu is the same. I got my usual Butter Chicken on Rice $5.95. It’s certainly not as rich as ones you would get in a sit down restaurant, but it’s ok. The chicken pieces this time were too large making it a bit difficult with the flimsy spoon to cut or hold while trying to take a bite out of it.

idearabbit-curryexpress_richmond2 idearabbit-curryexpress_richmondI always find the portion a bit small, though it can vary slightly from who’s serving you. Service was satisfactory.

Caution: the spoons are thin and flimsy, but sharp on the edges! My friend cut his lip with it :(
