Pearl Castle Cafe Rolls Out New Menu Items

I was invited to Pearl Castle Cafe earlier this week by ChineseBites to try some of their new items on the menu. Pearl Castle Cafe is a Taiwanese Restaurant with four locations in Richmond, Burnaby and Surrey. They have won the Chinese Restaurant Awards Diners' Choice category for Best Taiwanese Restaurant from 2010 to 2013. Raw materials are imported from Taiwan and combined with fresh local ingredients to keep food authentic and fresh.

We started off with some drinks. New on the menu are drinks that come with cotton candy around the glass, which was delightful to see and taste. Other new drinks include traditional black tea and winer melon juice, both with jelly noodle toppings, as well as the fresh taro green milk tea. I tried the coconut red bean bubbletea myself, and really enjoyed it - it was not too sweet or heavy. The new drinks will only be available at the main location of Pearl Castle Cafe, at Continental Centre in Richmond.

Top (L to R): Sunset Love, Blue Sky, Young Girl's Dream. Bottom (L to R): Pudding Milk Tea, Coconut Red Bean, Peach Lemon Green Tea, Grean Tea Red Bean, Traditional Black Tea, Winter Melon Juice, Green  Lattea, Fresh Taro Green Milk Tea, Roasted Rice Lattea
There was plenty of food to try, and the dishes came out fast and furious. Everything was very flavourful and delicious. There were a lot of traditional Taiwanese dishes that we tried, with a lot of variety in the food.

Pineapple shrimp fried rice (new).
Deep fried mushroom. These were seasoned with a bit of cinnamon, which gave it a very interesting flavour!
Taiwanese sausages. One of my favourite dishes, these sausages are perfect with rice.
Deep fried fish cake. They were a bit chewy.
Deep fried tofu with a side of kimchi. These were also seasoned with cinnamon, similar to the deep fried mushrooms.
Wonton with chili sauce. It wasn't very spicy at all.
Three cup chicken. A popular Taiwanese dish.
Marinated pork with rice (new). There is also a chicken option that is new on the menu.
Garlic sauce chicken. There were plenty of garlic, which made it very flavourful!
Milk seafood & pork hot pot. This had a very interesting taste and very creamy soup.
Original Taiwanese beef noodle.
Vegetarian abalone mushroom with three spices. You can also order this dish with meat.
Kimchi seafood fried udon. This was very spicy!
Spicy incense pot (new). There were lots of different seafood in this dish, including shrimp, fish balls and squid.
