At Big Mouth Kee, you’ll need to be insistent with the waiter about bringing you the food from the Chinese menu, not the English menu (which is from the won ton soup school of Chinese-Canadian cuisine). Who wants that when they do winter melon soup, a melon holding wonderful chicken stock with shrimps, Chinese mushrooms and sweet ham? They keep live Vancouver crabs in the tank, and deep-fry them just enough with a fragrant mountain of crisp garlic in contrast with the hot of chili and the sweet of minced pork. My soul can also be bought cheap with their pork that has been braised long and slow with onions and five-spice for sweetness, complexity and tenderness. Who cares that it ain’t the Ritz?
