Bringing you to JiangHu for Authentic Taiwanese Dishes

Right Next to Hotpot Palace, there is another hidden gem that serves authentic Taiwanese pot and stir-fry dishes – JiangHu. It uses local ingredients to create some unique dishes that you rarely see in Vancouver. Recently, they launched a happy hour for late-night supper, which is best for any late night cravings out there, especially when everything closes early in Vancouver. This event is organized by Issabelle, the Community Manager of Yelp Vancouver, and I was so excited to be part of it. In addition, Feast: Asian Dining Festival also joined us for the night.

This is the second year of Feast: Asian Dining Festival, which you can dine in 34 participating restaurants in Richmond with a discounted price or special set menus featuring their signature dishes. This festival features a variety of cuisines, including Chinese, Indian, Korean, Persian, and Japanese, so there must be a suitable restaurant for everyone. The festival is happening from now until November 18, 2019. I collaborated with Feast and Subaru to drive around Richmond and visit some participating restaurants. My first stop is Hotpot Palace, a high-end hotpot restaurant offering a $38 set menu during the Feast Festival.

Liuyishou Hot Pot on Robson

Regardless of the season, I always crave for hot pot. It is the best way to bond with friends and family, while sharing all the food in the pot. Last week, I revisited Liuyishou Hot Pot with other foodies, and we had so much fun together. Compared to the Dolar Shop (check out my review here!), Liuyishou Hot Pot is more reasonably priced and with a casual ambiance. You can find some unique appetizers here, so you can nibble on them while waiting for the soup to boil. I also got few tips for any newbies to hot pot.

The Dolar Shop – Premium Hotpot in Richmond

I still remembered those good old times when my friends and I were celebrating birthday at a AYCE hotpot place, but for the past years, more hotpot places opened in Vancouver. And their elegant interior, exceptional service, and premium food quality just bring hotpot to a whole new level. However, these restaurants are relatively expensive, so I didn’t have a chance to try any of them until recently. The Dolar Shop introduces a 30% off promotion on Monday to Friday from 2 pm to 5:30 pm or from 10 pm to 12 am. How can I resist of trying this place on a Friday afternoon?
