Hot Spot Chinese Cuisine, 9255 Woodbine Avenue, Markham - NEW FIND! Preliminary, first impression, a pretty positive one!

After seeing hot-pot, hand-pulled noodles and spicy Sichuan places opening up one after another in Richmond Hill/Markham. It was a revelation and pleasant surprise to see a new ' Cantonese Dim Sum and Wok-hay stirred fry ' place opening up in my neighborhood.

Located at an obscure corner in the Woodbine/16th Ave plaza close to T&T. This place boasted fresh artisan, house made Dim Sum and a menu featuring some authentic, traditional, home style iconic Cantonese dishes.

After doing some brief grocery shopping at T&T, I decided to drop in and get a few take out dishes just to give them a quick preliminary try-out. Result was pretty positive.

My Har-Gow was nicely created with crunchy and well seasoned, juicy prawns filling. However, I am going to reserve my opinion on the wrapper since the morsels were placed in a closed container on their way home, resulting in condensation.

The non-greasy and crispy Taro-Croquette was nicely executed. Filling was generous and juicy, The addition of minced pickled turnips to the pork was a delight.

Fried Beef with black-bean sauce Ho-fun rice noodle has plenty of smoky wok-hay aroma. The Ho-Fun used was freshly made and NOT the cut-corner, reconstituted ones used by so many places.
Lady server looking after me was most friendly....a rarity in Chinese restaurants nowadays!

IMHO, this place has potential and as such, I will definitely return for a few Dim Sum and dinner meals to explore their varied menu further.
