Foodology Disclaimer: I was invited by ChineseBites to try Grand Dynasty’s signature dishes with a few other bloggers. The service is not representative of their usual service since they knew we were coming.
Grand Dynasty is located at the Grand Villa Casino in Burnaby. It is a popular location for Dim Sum, but a great place for dinners too. The prices are generally a tad higher than other Chinese restaurants in the area but pretty good place to dine.
The interior is clean and there are lots of round tables available.
Pan Fried Jumbo Prawn with Egg Yolk Sauce was my favorite since the sauce didn’t overpower the sweetness of the prawn.
Pan Fried Jumbo Prawn with a house Spicy Sauce was a good sauce, but not my favorite prawn sauce. It wasn’t very spicy either.
Boiled Live Lobster in Superior Broth comes with the lobster all cut up on a plate with bean sprout.
They take the meat and then prepare it at your table till it’s all cooked.
The broth was very had a great taste and a good addition to the meal.
Baked Chicken stuffed with Sea Cucumber looks like a regular chicken on the outside, but all the sea cucumber is hidden.
Once you cut through the skin, the sea cucumber is revealed. I’ve never had sea cucumber, so I was very intrigued to see how it would taste. The duck fat really marinated the sea cucumber to give it a great taste.
Live Jumbo Ling Cod Fish Hot Pot was a good dish, but I didn’t particularly love it since I don’t really like the flavour combination of sweet and salty together.
Sautéed Green Vegetable & Wild Mushroom with an arrangement of pumpkin and winter melon. I loved the mushrooms!
Deep Fried Crispy Chicken with Sticky Rice
It was a very interesting dish with layers of sticky rice and crispy chicken. I thought it was alright, but was a unique dish.
Live Lobster & Seafood with Crispy Rice in Soup was probably one of my favorite dishes.
The crispy rice that is added to the soup makes a *snap* *crackle* *pop* sound as it is added in. It had a great aroma of lobster!
Shredded Coconut Creamy Tart came at the end of the meal.
Black Sesame & Coconut Layer Cake came at the end too. I loved this jello.
Overall, I’ve had pretty good experiences in the past at Grand Dynasty. The service and food is still pretty good. Whether its dim sum or just a dinner, you can’t go wrong here.
