Dinesty is finally open on Robson Street in Downtown Vancouver. Dinesty took over the previous location of Jang Mo Jib and completely renovated the location.
Their menu is similar but there are a few new additions. The menu now has all pictures too!
The interior is pretty nice and has lots of space. It’s been quite popular even though it’s only been open for a very very short amount of time. It’s best to make reservations.
Their kitchen is quite large as well. You can watch them all at work. They definitely have less staff than the Richmond location, so when its a full house, service is slower.
Xiao Long Bao ($5.95) tasted the same and fantastic as usual. It’s a must have item!
Steamed Kimchi and Pork Dumpling ($5.95) made me very intrigued so we ordered them. The waitress warmed us that this would be quite spicy. It wasn’t spicy at all! Not quite sure what she was warning us about. This dumpling didn’t taste very good at all. Best to stick with the original XLB.
Pork and Prawn Potstickers ($4.75) comes with 6 pieces and has a piece of shrimp and minced pork inside each roll. I saw this on a few other tables as well. Seemed like a popular item.
Pan Fried Chive Dumpling tasted ok, but I prefer the pan fried beef dumpling.
Chinese Green Onion Pancake ($2.50) was crispy on the outside. You probably want some vinegar as a dip to accompany this.
Deep Fried Chicken roll comes in 2 rolls and has about 10 pieces. Pretty delicious and it comes with a dish of mayo to go along with it.
Beef Noodles soup with Pickled Vegetables pretty solid bowl of noodles and it’s a quick and cheap item to order if it’s for one person.
Overall, pretty good items overall. With this location downtown, it is bound to be very popular! Lost of people were doing take out orders too. I’d definitely come again! The service varies depending on how many other customers are there. When this place got packed, it was so difficult to order a can of coke. We had to ask 5 different waitresses before we got it.
