Shopping and Eating Out in Richmond, BC

Dim Sum at Continental Seafood

Since moving the US Midwest, I dearly miss the weekly dim sum lunches I enjoyed with my family. In Minnesota, there was a local dim sum restaurant in Bloomington, but it closed down 2 years ago. Since then, we only eat dim sum during our visits to either Toronto or Vancouver.

The morning after we arrived in Vancouver, we had dim sum at Sun Sui Wah restaurant in Vancouver.  Our next dim sum adventure was at Continental Seafood Restaurant located on Cambie street in Richmond. It is situated in a strip mall with lots of parking. This restaurant is "family style" meaning that it's not fancy or expensive.

The Richmond Night Market, Richmond, British Columbia

The Richmond Night Market is an outdoor Asian bazaar held in a large parking lot behind the River Rock Casino on No. 3 Road in Richmond. The Market is held every year from May 17 to October 14 and runs from Monday to Saturday from 7 PM to 12 AM, and Sundays and stat holidays from 6 PM to 11 PM. You can take the Skytrain to Bridgeport station and walk or you can drive. There is also adequate parking although it can be a bit of a traffic jam. Luckily there are parking attendants that guide you in and out of the parking lots. Parking is free, but there is a $2/person entrance charge, with free entrance for seniors (age 60 and above) and children under 10.
