New on the roster is the Heritage chicken, Soy chicken, BBQ duck and BBQ pork. You can have it on a bed of rice or take it go in half or whole portions.
I also got to try the Chili Wontons, Crispy Wontons, Wonton Soup, Spicy Tofu, Five Spice Chicken Wings and Edamame.
The Heritage chicken has a thin, crispy skin with good flavour to it.
The Soy chicken has a tenderness and moist texture to it that is atypical at most places you go to, so I really enjoyed it here.
The BBQ duck is good, the seasoning is very similar to most places you’d find it. I find the duck is a bit on the tough side, but duck normally has the tendency to be tougher.
The BBQ pork has good flavour, without being too overpowering or too salty. The pork is tender and juicy.
I know it’s probably hard to do, but I would LOVE to see roast pork here one day – I’d probably come back often for that!
Heritage definitely knows how to do sides very well – I loved their chili wontons and crispy wontons the best. The chili wontons are served with chili and vinegar and have a great heat to them.
The crispy wontons are served with house sauce which is akin to sweet chilli and sour sauce. They are so deliciously crispy on the outside and juicy with big wontons on the inside.
Wonton Soup – the wonton soup is good, the wontons are pretty large, I’d like to see them give you the option to add noodles to this dish to make it a heartier option for lunch.
Spicy Tofu – another favourite of mine, it’s served with Gochujang sauce. This and the chili wontons have just the right amount of heat that dissapates after you’ve ate the wonton/tofu.
The Five Spice Chicken Wings are crispy and have good flavour to them, I feel like they could be served with some sauce to punch up the flavour.
Edamame – fried and crispy, a good way to get your greens but enjoy them at the same time.
I went back a couple days later to check out their Four Treasure Rice, only on for this week for $13.88 to celebrate their new BBQ items! You’ll get BBQ duck, BBQ chicken and roast pork along with a soy egg. It is a hefty portion, you’ll either have to be super hungry or bring a friend to share – but worth the price for sure!
I also tried the Chicken Rice Bowl made with fried chicken leg, wood ear mushrooms, ginger scallion sauce, crispy onions, lime cabbage slaw and a slow cooked marinated egg (soy egg). It’s a good portion for lunch and the chicken was tender on the inside with a thin, crispy skin. The other items in it are good, and are not too over powering. I prefer their BBQ items over the rice bowl though.
Overall there are some good menu items here at Heritage to check out if you’re in the area. There isn’t anywhere around the Cambie and Broadway corridor where you can get your Chinese style BBQ meat on, so it’s definitely a welcome addition to lunch time fare.
