Memory Corner is across from Richmond City Hall on Anderson Road and within walking distance to Richmond Centre.
The interior isn’t that big but cozy looking. They only have two big tables so it’s not a good place for large groups. Also, it’s cash only.
The menu has fancy looking writing inside but it was a bit difficult to read. They seem to specialize in lamb dishes.
To start, we shared the Taiwanese Chicken Nuggets with Spicy Fermented Bean Curd. I’m not sure how this is made and I know it doesn’t look spicy in the photo but it was spicy! Each piece was crispy and juicy!
Two of my friends ordered the House Specialty Lamb Rice Noodle Soup. This came with some hoisin and spicy sauce on the side. The soup was like a clear broth but had herbal flavours to it but it wasn’t too strong. I tried a piece of lamb and it didn’t have much flavour to it so it was nice to have the dip on the side.
This was one of the Lamb Hot Pot sets, not sure which one. This had a stronger herbal flavour to it and personally not something I would order.
The Satay Lamb with Fried Vermicelli was really soggy. The noodles were on the mushy side and I didn’t like it that much. The flavour was okay, not the kind of satay flavour I had imagined though.
This was the Sesame Oil Chicken with Angel Hair Noodles Hot Pot. Didn’t try it.
For myself, I had the Three Cup Chicken set. There was plenty of garlic and basil in this and each piece was tender and perfectly cooked. There also weren’t too many small bones! That happened to me once and it was a horrible eating experience. For the side dishes, there was a chilled cucumber salad, some kind of melon and siu choy. I thought the side dishes could’ve been better. The melon and siu choy was rather bland.
Also had this Taro Milkshake which was pretty standard with mild taro flavours and a milky and slushy consistency.
Based on this experience I don’t think the lamb items I tried this time are for me since I’m not a fan of the herbal flavours so I’m glad I didn’t order them! Not that they were bad I just prefer eating other things. If you do enjoy lamb items though you should give Memory Corner a try.
