We also ordered Cold Mixed Dry Bean Curd, a dish I first experienced at a Shanghai-cuisine restaurant in Markham, ON called Ala Kitchen. This dish is quite fascinating, with minced dried bean curd mixed with some form of Chinese vegetable for which I unfortunately am still unable to find the English translation. The pieces are delightfully chewy, and though there is no binding ingredient you can hold clumps of them delicately between the chopsticks. I can find no words to describe this dish further, but I can certainly say I really enjoyed it.

I opted out of dessert as it was Red Bean Pastry, and I'm sure I mentioned in a recent post that I was no fan of red beans. However, my parents and grandparents enjoyed them, noting that they had the right amount of sweetness for them, as well as how crispy it was on the outside while soft and almost piping hot on the inside.
Chef Hung Taiwanese Beef Noodle has become a global franchise, and I can appreciate its growing popularity. Apparently it has plans to open at least another franchise in the Vancouver area. I'm betting I won't be seeing a franchise in Winnipeg, let alone Brandon, MB, anytime soon, though the Toronto area might be possible. Until then, I can only wait and salivate at the thought of another trip back to Vancouver with a stop back at Chef Hung.
