Using rustic, locally sourced ingredients and time-honoured Cantonese recipes, customers can be transported through tastes and aromas back to the infamous and familiar wonton houses of the Guangzhou.

Viet House Restaurant
3420 Cambie Street, Vancouver
Cuisine: Taiwanese and Japanese
PAMI, like spaghetti from western countries or ramen from Japan, is the noodle from Taiwan. PAMI literally means the natural sun-dried noodles. The sun drying process avoids any use of preservatives and retains the natural smell of wheat flours. The noodles have a broad, flat character with a very nice chew to them. The sauce coats the noodles completely – not too much, not too little. The balance of the spicy Sichuan pepper to other flavors is masterful; it balances perfectly. The noodles are ranked in the Top 10 Noodles of All Time by Ramen Rater and is the only noodle on the list from Taiwan.
