Last year, the Dining Terrace in Richmond Centre opened revealing it’s $30 million, 44,000 square foot eating area. I’ve heard lots about it but since I live in Burnaby, I don’t really spend much time in Richmond. My parents took me here to eat lunch as we were meeting up with relatives. We decided to stop at the Dining Terrace so I could take a look and have a quick lunch.
There are 18 new food vendors and they are:
- Curry Express
- Edo Japan
- New York Fries
- Thai Express
- Bourbon St. Grill
- GoodAh Grill
- Jugo Juice
- Kung Pao Wok
- Crepe De licious
These food vendors are quite typical of most food courts in the Lower Mainland. It still doesn’t compare to the Aberdeen food court for sure.
There’s a lot of seating and the interior looks really really nice.
All of the food vendors can be found at other food courts around the Lower Mainland as well, but they make these places look really nice.
Some of them have really vibrant and bold colors.
UMI Japanese Eatery & Udon Bar
Umi Sushi Express has several locations across Canada and serve Japanese food. This location is a bit unique from their other family of restaurants since it serves hot food. Their other locations have ready-to-serve items like sushi.
I ordered the chicken bento box and it has chicken teriyaki, a small salad, deep-fried veggie tempura and 4 California rolls. It’s not amazing Japanese food, but its passable food court quality.
Crepe De Licious
Crepe De Licious is located in the center of the food court across from Pinkberry. They have savory and sweet crepes. They even have breakfast crepes too. I really wanted a breakfast crepe but it was the lunch hour so they didn’t serve it anymore.
My sister ordered a Black + White Crepe, which is Nutella and bananas as the filling.
She also added a scoop of ice cream on top. It was quite a filling crepe and she really enjoyed it. But then again, who can resist Nutella? I know I can’t.
