Wow, I didn't know that a Chinese place could be so packed! My boyfriend's parents suggested this place for dinner one day and I passed. However, they loved it so much that they went again and I went to see what the hype was about. Apparently there is a lot of it because the inside was totally packed. Thankfully, we had a reservation. Red Farm is upscale Chinese food. Their duck and lettuce wraps was a standout dish. It was savory, crunchy, sweet (it comes with a corn salsa). Shrimp fried rice was underwhelming. Since, we've been multiple times for dinner. I'm not a big fan of Asian cuisine in general, but when it comes to Red Farm, I'll make an exception.
Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure this is the Cantonese style of cooking that I've been craving for so long! I've finally found a place where the chilli beef is spot on, be sure to try it. The Pac Man dumplings are pretty cute, entertaining, but not overly special to taste. I found this place a little pricey for what it was, however, this style of cooking is hard to find in the city.
