Prior to visiting CN Tower with Zhao Kun we had some Dim Sum with Derek and Calvin at Casa Victoria on Warden and Highway 7. It is one three "Casa" restaurants serving high-end Cantonese Food around the Scarborough and Markham area.
Like all Casa restaurants, the design of the Casa Victoria reminded us of a Victorian Tea Room with waitresses dressed in traditional English Maids Uniform. The food however is strictly Chinese and was really good.
Steamed Pork Ribs with Garlic
The Ribs were quite good and there was quite a bit of meat and the garlic was well drawn out into the ribs.
The Siu Mai was good but definitely not the best that I've had. It had a nice meaty texture but lacked the prawns on top.
Beef Siu Mai
The Beef Siu Mai tasted more like Beef Balls more than a Siu Mai.
Minced Pork with Glutinous Rice in Lotus Leaf
This was good. The minced pork had the right amount of saltiness and the rice was very soft and sticky.
Steamed Vegetable Dumplings
The filling wasn't actually vegetables but rather minced meat and mushrooms. The skin was actually made from glutinous rice.
BBQ Pork Bun
The BBQ Pork Bun was not bad. The filling was good but the bun wasn't as soft as I would like.
These were the best! The shrimps were jumbo and the skin was translucent and soft. One of the best Har Kow I've had.
Steamed Rice Rolls with Jumbo Prawns
This was really good! The prawns were super large and perfectly steamed together with the soft rice roll.
Steam Cuttlefish with Curry
The cuttlefish was very soft with quite a bit curry flavor. It was one of the best I've had.
Boiled Choi Sum
Fried Yam with Minced Pork Filling
This was good. The Minced Pork Filling was tasty and the Yam was very crispy and did not taste oily at all.
Pan Fried Bun with Black Pepper Steak
The Bun was very soft and good but it contained too little black pepper steak. It was more like Minced Beef.
Fried Sesame Ball with Lotus Paste
The filling was very good and the Crispy Glutinous Rice Ball was very good.
BBQ Pork Pastry
The BBQ Pork Pastry was good with again the filling very tasty. The Pastry was very buttery and crumbles in your mouth. It was really good.
Overall Casa Victoria is a little more expensive than most Dim Sum places but compensates with better quality dim sum. Their Har Kow and Steamed Rice Rolls with Jumbo Prawns are one of the best I've had in recent months.
