Richmond - Pacific East Mall

Thank you Chowhounds for all your tips … and patience ... with all these posts since I ‘discovered’ Pacific East Mall last week.

I’m not comfortable with Asian cuisine … it’s such a vast subject and intimidates me.

That might have been the reason I’ve put off going to Pacific East Mall. However, I found it very non-Asian friendly. About 99 % of everything is in both English and Chinese though not all the people who work there might speak perfect … or sometimes much … English.

But I loved it and found it a great place. Haven’t run into any aggressive Asian grannies yet. So armed with a little more knowledge I look forward to many happy days of eating and shopping in the future.

Thanks all again.

Here are all the posts in one place.

I think that covers it food-wise.

Sushi & Roll is due to open in a space that has had a number of businesses ... Goldilocks ... Ay Chung ... Da Chang Jin ... could be more. Someone said it might be a landlord charging too much rather than a cursed location. Good luck Sushi & Roll.

I’m not sure if the herb shop counts as food. Wan Fung Chinese Herbal is the only store with no English except the English sign at the back of the store with shop name. Even the business card had no English Sure smelled good in there though.There is a back wall that has lots of wooden drawers, holding herbs, I assume. Lots of bagged things and a desk where they consult with customers.

I checked out Hookah Hut in the back of Stogies Smoke Shop. They don’t sell food … there’s just a hookah bar and billards there. However, anyone who wants hookahs and food … there’s certainly enough restaurants at Pacific East Mall … just not Mid-Eastern.

And what is a hookah bar doing in an Asian mall anyway?

I noticed there is parking both in back and in front of the building. Is there a back entrance or do you have to walk to the front?
