#Takeoutday supporting Lin Chinese Cuisine

I'm going to say it - Lin Chinese Cuisine is the best Chinese restaurant in Fairview. We decided to buy food good for until Tuesday.

What to eat from Lin Chinese Cuisine?

For lunch today, we finished the Xiao long bao, Pan-Fried Cake with Marinated. Beef, Tan Tan Noodle Soup with Minced Meat, and the free Spring Rolls.

Best Xiao Long Bao

They have the best Xiao long bao that I have tried. I think it is best enjoyed in the restaurant, but in these times, even take out it's delicious.

Pan-Fried Cake with Marinated Beef

It's okay, but the best Pan-Fried Cake with Marinated Beef I have tried is from Peaceful Restaurant.

The spring roll is free.

Tan Tan Noodle Soup with Minced Meat

I don't know why I love Tan Tan Noodle so much. I wish I could eat it hot in the restaurant, but it's good to take out as well - be sure to put it inside the microwave to warm it up. Yummy!

As shown in the pictures below, they put the noodle and minced meat separate from the soup.

Why order from Lin Chinese Cuisine?

First, let's support local restaurants. This place is a family-owned Chinese restaurant along West Broadway (between Granville Street and Fir Street).

Second, if you order via phone for pick-up, they give you a 10% discount.

Lastly, if your order is above $50, they give you spring rolls (we got 4 pieces, which is happiness in itself).

How to order from Lin Chinese Cuisine?

You can give them a call (that's what I did) for pick-up. You can also go there, place your order for take-out. You can also place an order through their website. They're also in Skip The Dishes.

May 17, 2020 Update:

Hubby and I measure the calories we eat to lose weight (or at the very least not gain so much weight). I decided to weigh a couple of the items we ordered yesterday.

Kung Pao Chicken

The Kung Pao Chicken weighs around 600 grams. I decided to get 200 grams for breakfast, but we only end up eating around 50 grams each, so we will have the balance for lunch.

Honey Prawns

The Honey Prawns (without the sauce) weighs 300 grams and it has 15 prawns. I decided to reheat everything and we'll have 3 each for breakfast and whatever remains for lunch.

Happy Sunday!

May 18, 2020 Update:

Today, we ate the Deluxe Mixed Vegetable. It weighs 500 grams, though that was frozen from our fridge. After reheating in the stove, it weighs around 450 grams (I didn't write down the exact weight). Meanwhile, the Sweet and Sour Pork weigh 500 grams without the sauce. We didn't finish the pork, but we ate all the vegetable for lunch and dinner.

We also started eating the Shanghai-Style Chow Mein last night. We ate 150 grams each and I think there's 200 grams left in the container which we will probably have for dinner tonight.

Happy Monday! It's Victoria Day which means extra rest day.
