Unforgettable Chinese Restaurant
7219 – 104 Street
Edmonton, Alberta T6E 4B8
Blink and you might miss this place – located on Calgary Trail (southbound), across the street from Strathcona High School. This restaurant replaced the previous tenant ‘Jewel of Kashmir’ in the early part of 2009.
A big red sign, advertising daily dim sum should catch your eye amidst all of the small shops along this stretch of road. Limited parking in front, with a few additional stalls in the back.
Arriving shortly after they opened, there was only one other couple which made it easy to get a table. Once seated, we were promptly delivered a dim sum order-sheet along with an additional list of available items on a separate display card. As we pondered our choices – we were offered a selection of ready-made items: Chinese long-donuts, egg tarts, baked pork buns, and a few others which are escaping my memory.
This egg tart, was a good start – soft filling with a hint of lemon, in a light pastry with no trace of excess grease at the base.
