Sorry ! this is a back-dated post – that happened last month – to be exact – but then my real birthday was in April and we only got to celebrate it in June – because in April – both Chloe and I didn’t feel good to go to the city – so we had to postpone our trip. But we finally did make it up to the city in June and one of the meal we had was a dim sum meal at the Great Wall Restaurant – right in town. We had been meaning to come here for the longest time – but we keep going to the one in Bedford thinking that it is the same restaurant. Now you must all be wondering what else PB got for me for a birthday present right? a diamond bracelet , maybe? or a Louis Vuitton handbag? so what do you think ? did i get a diamond bracelet?
The outside of the restaurant looks like your typical Chinese restaurant in Canada – but the inside is uniquely furnished and it felt like I had gone to Chinatown in Toronto – but of course – the one in Toronto is a lot more vibrant.
The Great Wall is located in downtown Halifax – off Sackville Street.
I had some Har Gow – and as you can see – the prawns were real prawns and not shrimps.
I also ordered some glutinous rice with chicken in them – they were yummy!
Chloe and PB had shanghai noodles – but they came pretty spicy for them – and we had to get another plate with no spice. But the restaurant was very gracious and didn’t charge us for it.

I also ordered some congee – but the next time – I have to remember only to order the one with century eggs and no pork.
We also had some fried squids because they came highly recommended but they were ok – but I won’t order it again because you need to eat it really hot – else it becomes too soggy with oil. Overall, food was really good – in fact the best I’ve tasted in Canada – as far as dim sum is concerned. Now come the big surprised – did you forget about it already? about what PB got me for my birthday?
It wasn’t a diamond bracelet – but close enough – a diamond ring – an eternity ring that I had been eyeing on for a long time – so he did listen eh – hahhaha!! maybe the next time – he would get me a diamond bracelet? one can always hope eh? now if it wasn’t because of car problems we had when we were in the city – it would have been a perfect trip.
