Lunar New Year Lunch delivery from Grand Chinese Restaurant (Yaletown)

Happy Lunar New Year! We ordered our favourite Chinese dishes for lunch today from a new restaurant - Grand Chinese Restaurant in Yaletown.

Beef Rolls

We love beef rolls! The best one is still from Peaceful Restaurant, but this comes a close second. What's the difference? This one has a thicker wrap, but the beef and sauce are as delicious.

Xiao Long Bao

It's hard to judge the Xiao Long Bao when it's delivered and not fresh from a restaurant kitchen, but it's still good.

Pan-Fried Pork Buns

Inside of the Pan-Fried Pork Buns

I discovered that I prefer pan-fried pork buns over steamed ones. However, this one has more dough than filling. 

Shanghai-style Chow Mein

This is my favourite dish from Grand Chinese Restaurant and I give this the "award" of becoming my favourite Shanghai-style chow men. It's slightly sweet but has that great flavour. I don't think I have tried a Shanghai-style chow mein which I will crave and would want to eat again.

Dan Dan Noodles

My favourite dan dan (tan tan) noodles is from Szechuan Chili because the sauce obviously has peanut butter which adds another depth of flavour I haven't encountered before. This one though has a lot of crushed peanut, but not as delicious as the one from Szechuan Chili.
