westaust and hungryann were commenting on the upcoming Chinese strip mall on Taschereau a few months back.
Stopped in late this afternoon.
The new Kim Phat anchors one side and is fully operational (I think they opened in December). There's a sign up for Kam Fung (resto) on the other end, but crate paper still covers the windows (as well as the majority of the rest of the mall).
Theres a mobile phone storefront as well as a tea outlet. Not sure whats going to occupy the rest.
Kim Phat is huge, well lit, well organized and laid out, and well stocked. Its a jewel.
Stopped in to mostly take a look, maybe pick up a few things...walked out with $98 worth of stuff including $3.99/kg pork ribs, fresh ox tail, dozen live cherrystone clams (a measly $4.09), coupla chili sauces I haven't seen, and dirt-cheap soup bones.
If you're so inclined, you can also find the likes of duck eggs by the dozen, incubated hens eggs, whole fresh beef tongue under $10 apiece, geoduck, and live whelk.
Nice place, but don't go hungry...
