'Sun Star Chinese Seafood' - A weird rendition of a popular iconic dish!

Charles Yu | Dec 16, 201603:04 PM    

Lunch at this popular North York Chinese wok-hay restaurant ( Sun Star - Finch/Bayview ) resulted in my encountering a 'Weird' rendition of ' Gone Chau Ngau Ho - aka Fried flat rice Noodles with Beef '.

Though possessing some nice smokey aromatic wok hay with well seasoned caramelized beef. However, the funny choice of using ' soya bean sprouts with crunchy head attached ' instead of the usually more delicate ' Mung Bean Sprouts ' really throws me off!. Also, no scallions or chives were added was another strange approach!

Their ' Mixed Pig's Innards Rice Congee aka Kub Dai Jook ' was another weird concoction! Instead of the usual mix of Pig's liver, kidney, stomach and meat ball. We found chicken meat and a couple of prawns in our bowl!...???

I have attached a typical delicious rendition ( using Mung Bean Sprouts ) of this noodle dish from K&K Cafe ( Valleymede and Hwy#7 ) for comparison
