Sukiyaki and bubble tea in “Little Hong Kong”

I spent much of yesterday in Richmond, British Columbia — a booming and dynamic suburb of Vancouver that has been heavily influenced by immigration from Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Mainland China.

A few highlights from my adventures here:

  • Dining at an eatery named Posh, North America’s first restaurant devoted exclusively to the Japanese cuisine of sukiyaki (and highly recommended)
  • Checking out the scene at relatively new River Rock Casino Resort
  • Late night matcha milk tea and “chocolate baked toast” at Taiwan-style Go-Go Tea Cafe
  • Seeing the progress of the Canada Line down No. 3 Road, a rapid transit project that will connect Richmond’s core to downtown Vancouver and Vancouver International Airport
  • Here’s an article I wrote for “Price Tags” a few years ago about the area. It’s safe to say that in 2007, the progress is continuing unabated.
