Beijiang Restaurant (Richmond) - Xinjiang

Saw an ad in the newspaper for this newly-opened restaurant and finally went in today. Got there around 2:45pm (yes, for lunch) and there were a couple of parties there. Our server said they have been open for a month and a half.

We had the Da Pan Ji (Big Plate Chicken) which comes in 3 sizes. Noodles were served on the side. I found the dish a bit bland but I don't know if they purposely toned it down because we had two young kids in tow and they were afraid that the kids weren't going to eat spicy food. (The blandness does not just refer to the spiciness though.) They didn't know that the kids had already eaten their lunch. :)

They had a very colourful menu and the pricing is a tad high. Think the pricing for Golden Szechuan or Bushuair plus 10%-15% more. E.g. our plate of Da Pan Ji costs 16 for a small. The menu is very lamb-intensive and they have on there advertised a whole barbecued lamb, which is priced at 980 yuan. I don't know if that's CAD or RMB. Skewers cost $2 each.

The food items are certainly interesting and I would go back and try different items. They have what they called hot-pan specials, which looked from the pictures to be "sizzling" items.

The restaurant is in the strip mall with Michigan Noodle House and the Shaolin Martial Arts Academy, at the end of Alexandra Road. The address is 1075-8580 Alexandra Road and they are open Tuesdays to Sundays 11am to 11pm.
