The Boss Restaurant has been around for a long time. Located inside Metrotown Mall in Burnaby, it was an ideal place to go for a quick break from shopping and grab a bite to eat.
The Boss serves H.K. style cafe food. They have a wide selection of dishes in their menu. But I decided to get a combo meal (a dish with a drink) from their special delight menu. My cold H.K. style milk tea with coffee was good. I always enjoyed this traditional drink.
I ordered Baked Breaded Pork Lion Fried Rice with Tomato Sauce. My friend ordered Singapore Fried Vermicelli. Both dishes arrived pretty fast. I really like the vermicelli dish. It was not too greasy and was very flavourful. Although the Baked Breaded Pork Lion was not the greatest in terms of how the dish looked, it was nevertheless delicious. However, it was a bit on the sweeter side for me (tomato sauce usually has ketchup in H.K. style dishes).
The prices were reasonable. The portions were also quite decent. It was not ‘amazingly’ good food, but it was not bad either. I would go back to the Boss Restaurant if I am in the area and craving for some authentic H.K. food.
Note: Cash only.
