Beefy Beef

When I think of a place that’s cheap and quick, I go to asian places. I do go to Beefy not necessarily for the taste but for convienience.The Burnaby location is very close to where I go to school (BCIT).

Today I had what I normally get, their famous salty crispy peppery chicken with rice. I dont really like getting the soup version unless Im starving because it’s a big portion but a bland soup base.

My chicken was tender and moist like it always is, but it seemed like a smaller portion from my last visit. My side dishes were pickled sweet cucumber and pickled radish with a hint of ginger.

I had bubble tea because I was craving for it for so long! My favourite is chocolate milk with coconut jelly. The serving is big here and not too sweet.

My husband ordered beef fried noodles. I was taken aback with the smell- very fishy. My husband said it was a “satay” sauce. I found his dish to be too salty and very very greasy.

He ordered passionfruit green tea. It was sweet, refreshing but had a strange metallic after taste to it. I’m not entirely sure whether this is common with passionfruit, but it was a bit off.

 

Food:
Our food was a bit off today. I dont expect gourmet here but consistency is a bit important if you have customers who are indifferent about whether they come here or not.

Value:ย 
I still think the price is decent here. A meal under $10. There are a lot of great chinese food places that offer cheaper prices but this place is cleaner than most and serve good bubble tea as well.

Ambiance:
The look of the place is clean and simple. Dark wooden tables and matching plate sets. Barely any decor but definitely better looking than their burnaby location.

Service:
I do think the service is much better at this location. They’re quick, talk fluent English/Mandarin/Cantonese and are easy to flag down to get something from.

 

OVERALL:ย 

Their menu is located here.
