Fisherman’s Terrance - Richmond

We headed out Friday before the Lunar Year of the Rooster for dim sum with family at Fisherman’s Terrance.  Knowing that Aberdeen Mall and it’s parking lot gets quite hectic near noon, we headed out early for a 10am dim sum reservation. 

Most of the mall was not yet opened so it was quite pleasant to find a parking spot.  The restaurant was also slowly starting to fill up with other early patrons after we were seated.

We went through the menu quickly and ticked off our our orders.

Sparerib Congee:  This is a small bowl enough to be shared with 2 people.  It has been consistent each time we order this congee as it’s not too much MSG.

Shrimp Dumplings:  Medium sized and is not overly filled with non shrimp ingredients.

Pan fried rice roll:  This was not good at all because the rolls were very hard like it was taken out from the refrigerator.

Glutinous Rice: This has lots of Chinese sausages.  It appears it’s not 100% glutinous rice.  It may have been mixed with 30% regular rice.  The sausages make this dish quite oily and filling.

Pig Knuckles in dark  vinegar: You can usually eat this if you have a relative or close friend who just gave birth as it’s customary to give out.  This was quite a big bowl as you can see with many knuckles in there.

Chicken Feet in black bean sauce:  The feet were rather skinny today.  There were only 4 pieces.

Crab cakes: This is mixed in with chives.  It’s was pan fried quite nicely.

Lastly for dessert we had these sesame glutinous rice balls:

Normally they are either hollow or filled with red bean paste.  But to my surprise, this is filled with a very delicious black sesame paste.

The dessert must have been the best part of the dim sum as we’ve never had sesame balls quite like this before.

However thumbs down on their credit card terminal.  They now only allow you to choose a percentage as a tip.  You are not able to choose a dollar amount to tip. What’s up with that?  They should update their system the customer has a choice on how to tip.  I never believed in adding tip on tax!

Other than that, food service was like usual and came quickly.

SFDD gives 3.5 out of 5 Delights.
