Little Saigon - Richmond Hill

The lady owner Christine is very nice and willing to help. Just ask her for some vegetarian options. She said more items will be added to their menu in the coming weeks. I like their vermicelli noodle (bun) and pho. Didn't care much about their fried rice. Pho Metro has better fried rice.

Surprising find - Cheap but more than decent Dim Sum snacks at a Chinese Supermarket!

The supermarket inside the mall is well known for their good quality fresh fruits and vegetables. Lots of loyal customers go there just to buy that. They recently renewed their lease for another five years.

Very good fresh fruit cake with fresh whipping cream or any of their mousse cake. All custom made to order. Light sponge cake. Instead of fresh fruits, you can ask for just strawberries. They also make an awesome Tiramisu.

They do not make them all the time, so call ahead to make sure they are available.
They do take special order. You can freeze their spelt pasta as well.

Edible Rice Paper

Try Bulk Barn - I bought some several months ago at the Hillcrest Mall location. It is not a shelf item. It is kept by the cashier. It is approximately 50cents a sheet.
