Dim Sum Lunch at Legend Restaurant (Thornhill, Ontario)

10:35:00 AM

Having exhausted much of the restaurants in Markham and Richmond Hill areas around, I decided to explore west to see what new places can be found. To my surprise, my colleague suggested "Legend Restaurant" since he had a very good foodie experience here. As a true foodie, I was very curious to see this place. For our weekly food adventure, a small group of colleagues and I decided to venture out to this place. 

This restaurant was located in the same plaza with the Piggy's Restaurant with a small Korean supermarket. Comparing this restaurant to other Chinese Restaurants (like Crown Prince, Yu Seafood), it was smaller in size. However, the decor inside was well maintained and had a modern fashion look. To my surprise, this place had existed for over 22 years in the Thornhill area.

The staff were helpful and quick with delivering their orders to us.

For the dim sum lunch service, you just had to select the items you want on paper and the staff would deliver the item to you. For this meal, we had order the following items:

  • Tea ($1.2 each - yes - these days - Chinese restaurants charge tea fees - there are some Asians who just sit there and drink tea all day long without ordering ... )
  • Steamed Shrimp Dumpling Ha-Gow ($6.20)
  • Steamed Shrimp+ Pork Dumpling ($4.2)
  • Steamed Spared Rib with Black Bean Sauce ($4.2)
  • Steamed BBQ Pork Bun ($4.2)
  • Steamed Omassa with Ginger ($5.2)
  • Steamed Cuttle Fish with Curry Sauce ($5.2)
  • XO Sauce Rice Noodle Roll ($5.2)
  • Baked Fresh Egg Tart ($4.2)
  • Egg Yolk Custard Bun ($4.2)
Overall, this meal was very expensive even for dim sum lunch. However, the dishes were one of the best dim sum offerings I had compared to the other popular dim sum restaurants in Toronto. As noted by one of my colleagues, the XO sauce rice noodle roll was perfect in execution. In most experiences, the crispy fritter roll inside the noodle roll would be soft and sometimes soggy (taking in the moisture of the noodle rolls). This noodle roll was crispy and fresh from the start. Everything about the items were above average and delicious.

Would I come back? Definitely.
