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.
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.
Their menu is located here.
