New York Times gives Richmond's Asian food scene a serious nod

We already knew Metro Vancouver is home to some amazing options when it comes to Asian food, but now that reputation has been cemented even further, after a serious nod from none other than the New York Times.

The article, entitled “The Best Asian Food in North America? Try British Columbia,” is written by Taras Grescoe.

In the article, Grescoe extols the numerous authentic Chinese dining experiences people can enjoy in the region – with a particular focus on the Richmond Night Market.

“Since I left British Columbia 20 years ago, the world — Asia, in particular — has found its way to Richmond: Almost two-thirds of the city’s 200,000 residents are now of Asian background,” Grescoe writes. “Their presence also means Richmond has become a one-stop paradise for lovers of Asian food.”

These days, Grescoe added, “when I’m hankering for a plate of Hainan chicken rice, xiao long bao (soup dumplings) from Shanghai, or an oyster omelet sautéed Chiuchow style, I know I can find it in Richmond.”

So do we, Grescoe, so do we.
