MYST Asian Fusion in Burnaby is a Taiwanese restaurant and they have recently revamped their menu to add even more dishes. We came to try a few of these new dishes. Since they have opened, this restaurant has been very busy at peak hours attracting people in the Lower Mainland.
Golden Sand Prawns with Salted Egg Yolk
This dish was delicious. The salty yolk is coated on the exterior, so its pretty yummy sucking on it.
Pork intestines, beef tripe, and beef tendon were the items my friend chose for this trio. I didn’t particularly like it since I’m not always a fan of organs.
Chinese Style Tea Smoked Duck
I love tea smoked duck and I still enjoyed it even if it was slightly over cooked. The smoked aroma just gets me every time.
MYST Deluxe Fried Rice
This fried rice is topped with pork floss, egg and a skewer of prawns. Delicious and easily shareable among the table or have it all to yourself.
Preserved cabbage, bamboo, green soy beans and sliced fish
I really enjoyed this dish since it has delicate dish, chew of the bean, and crunch of the bamboo. Healthy too. One of the favourite dishes of the night.
Sichuan dan dan noodle with spicy peanut sauce
This dish was so good. It had a little kick to the dish which was good as it pulled the dish together. I would order this again.
Assorted seafood spicy hot pot
This was really spicy. Because of the heat, it really numbs your mouth after a few bites. The fragrant aroma was there but it was a touch too spicy for me.. and everyone else at the table.
Steamed sliced fish with diced hot red peppers
It’s not as hot as it seems. The fish was very moist and delicious.
Myst assorted deep fried basket
If you like a diverse amount of fried item in one basket, this has squid tentacles, green beans, salt peppery chicken and black rice cake on top of shrimp crackers. Great item to share with a large group.
Myst deluxe feast platter
This is a bit different than the fried basket and it has fries, prawn chips, tiger prawn skewers, pineapple and sausage wrapped in bacon, and deep fried prawns.
Three Spice Chicken
I enjoyed this for the excessive amount of fried ginger and chicken. It would taste really good with a bowl of rice.
House special fried sliced noodle with beef
This is a very classic dish of any Chinese restaurant and it was good. The beef was tender and the noodles had a good bite to it.
Mango Shaved Ice
This mystical dessert was an exciting end to the meal. When the water hits the fdry ice, it’s quite a show. You’ll want to take pictures or even a video. When we went, it wasn’t mango season, so the mango wasn’t fresh. Now that it is in season, it will be super fresh.
Condensed milk thick toast
This was the last item to arrive at the table and it’s not as exciting as the shaved ice.
Myst continually adds new items to their menu and its good to see the variety especially if you come with a group with differing tastes. There’s always something for everyone here. Sometimes Myst can get very busy and parking can be a bit tough, but there is parking on the main road.
