Parklane Restaurant is a Chiu Chow style restaurant located next to London Drugs on No. 3 and Westminster highway. The other Chinese restaurant beside London Drugs is Empire Restaurant (which is a bit more expensive I believe) so don’t get them confused.
I like how it’s on the second floor and they have big windows that let lots of light come in! You also get a view of Kirin across the street and Richmond Centre. My parents were actually very late meeting my brother and I because they decided to do some last minute shopping…
This was Pan Fried Sole with Vegetables. A bit oily but the fish was very smooth and hard to screw up!
As a lover of sweet and sour things, I really enjoyed the Pan Fried Scallops and Prawns in Plum Sauce. The scallops and prawns were coated in a crispy batter and the prawns were nice and bouncy. They could’ve centered the food on the plate properly though!
Obviously I was doing all the ordering here so I also decided to get the Sweet and Sour Pork. This was a bad idea because it was so bony and not worth it at all!!! I just can’t get enough of sweet and sour food but just don’t get this at a Chiu Chow style restaurant.
I saved the best dish for last! This was half an order of Chiu Chow Marinated Duck! The duck sits on a bed of marinated tofu as well. The duck was well marinated but not too salty and not too fatty either! There was a lot of meat! We were very pleased with this dish.
I thought the service and décor of the restaurant was nicer than average too. Not fancy but nice.
