La Chine is a brand new Chinese restaurant that took over the former digs of Vic Hong in Richmond Hill. They are located at 165 East Beaver Creek Road. Head west from the 404 along Highway 7. Just before Leslie is East Beaver Creek. Turn onto East Beaver Creek and make a left just after the lights. The storefront is to the left.
The decor is upscale modern. Lots of white and wood materials. Their plates are non-traditional. Instead of the small round white dishes you are accustomed to, they have elevated rectangular plates. Think sushi. The waiter's uniforms are all black.
They serve both dim sum (menu, no carts) and lunch/dinner options. I went in the evening so didn't get to look at the dim sum menu. Next time. The lunch/dinner menu is whimsical and non-traditional. For example, they have a chicken section that is
entitled "Cluck cluck" or something to that effect. They also carry such items as eel, quail, and squab. The menu seems to reflect an attempt at pan-asian cuisine (ex. sashimi). Unfortunately, I only took-out some fried rice (duck meat, egg...) but it was well done and I will be back to try their other dishes.
