Yan's Garden Chinese Restaurant

If you like cheap and tasty dim sum, Yan's Garden is the place to go.  If you like shrimp, it will be a bonus.  It's a bit far for me (North Road and Lougheed Hwy), but once in a while, I'll make a trek out to Burnaby and have Dim Sum here.  The place expanded a year or so ago, and has way better seating capacity.
Deep fried squid with seasoning salt - one of my favourites.  They cook it just right unlike some other places where it comes out rubbery.
Seafood wrapped in tofu skin.  Often times it's ground pork, but this place used fish paste and other bits of seafood.
Siu Mai - packed with prawns. 
BBQ Pork wrapped in a fluffy pastry
Prawn Spring Rolls
Shao Long Bao,(siu long bao) or steamed pork dumplings
Prawns and scallops wrapped in tofu skin
Hagow - Steamed Prawn Dumplings
Sesame balls with black sesame filling
The filling in these ones were out of this world.  Defintely worth another try.
Egg Tarts
Tapioca Pudding
More of those sesame balls, these ones were much larger and probably didn't have a filling.

Yan's Garden has pretty quick service, not particularly friendly, but not nearly as bad as other's such as Angel Cake Cafe, and since the expansion, the wait times are generally pretty short to non existant.  Actually, we had one server who gave us exceptionally awesome service.  I tried to get a picture of her, but she refused.  Anyway the food is great and the prices are even better.  Like most other Chinese restaurants though, the washroom is filthy and minging, and you probably want to hold it until after you leave, or bring your own Purell. 

If you can get it in your head that this place simply does not have a washroom, check this place's worth it for the food.
