1 Bass Pro Mills Drive (Vaughan Mills Mall)
Pricing: Average – Pricey
Cuisine: Western Chinese/Fusion
The restaurant is attached to Vaughan Mills mall and prior to this visit, I’ve only eaten here once, when they first opened. The reason I didn’t return was because I found the food to be very Western and didn’t have much authenticity. I thought that after five years, I’d give them another try.
Their Avocado Hand Roll seems to have a little too much rice and not enough avocado. When this happens, you’re pretty much filling up on empty carbs and not getting your money’s worth.
The Mango Golden Roll is a maki roll filled with crab meat, cucumbers and shrimp tempura with an outer layer of sliced mango. The taste is surprisingly good but it falls apart very easily. Even before I dipped it into soy sauce, the insides were already falling out. It looks like someone needs to practice rolling.
The Singapore Rice Noodle is thin rice noodles stir-fried with vegetables with a mildly spicy sauce. This dish was made very well and wasn’t spicy at all. I can’t even say it had a kick because it was so light.
The Shrimp Pad Thai has giant succulent pieces of shrimp and was fairly sweet. Usually it’s a little tangy but I didn’t really taste it in their dish. I personally like things a little sweeter but I believe it’s important to stay true to its real taste.
The food isn’t bad but I wouldn’t recommend it or suggest going here if you’re looking for a place to go. If others want to try it out, go with them but you don’t have to come back.
