On Saturday night, we headed over to Casa Victoria as a big group to join into the 25th anniversary and chinese new year party for a company that we help out over the past 10+ years (depending on who we are talking about). For me, its been around 10 years. I don’t remember exactly when I started but its been pretty fun. Casa Victoria has a Victorian theme going on in their banquet halls. With beautiful lights and golden drapes and decorations on the walls, it radiated elegance. The atmosphere was beautiful, the group was awesome and its the first time we’ve come in contact with the main office in Toronto so it was pretty fun.
This is a food review so I’m going straight to our huge meal that we had. We had a cocktail in the beginning with some appetizers and drinks.
I’m a lover of Barbecue pork and especially when in a pastry, the fluffy crust that melts in my mouth when done well. This one was done to perfection. It was so scrumptious, not too sweet or salty and the texture was awesome. I’ve never had bite size pie shells filled with eel and man, were these awesome. I’m not a huge fan of eel but this one really impressed me a lot.
After a bit of chitchat and waiting for everyone to settle into their spots, we had some speeches and some games in between the course and even had a raffle and lots of gifts. It was super fun. The first dish to come is a very well-known Chinese meat platter…
A little cut in this because I realized that I forgot to take the picture of Crispy Fried Chicken. It was super delicious but somehow I didn’t do it. Up to now, I can’t say anything else about the food because it was super good. I’ll give more of a review at the end..We’re about halfway 😉
Man, that was a huge meal, right? It was awesomeness. There were a few that were on the salty side but thats because I’m used to eating my mom’s cooking and its all healthy and minimal salt. The meats were all done to perfection, desserts were right on. The most memorable was the crust of the Jumbo Shrimps and Scallops. Usually its called the Bird’s Nest and that was done so different from the other restaurants I’ve eaten at. Another one was the fish and the Crispy Bone. I was very tasty although I gave a part of my portion away because I was so full and I wanted to try the other food.
Fantastic meal and wonderful party with a bunch of awesome people. It was a great night!
The next morning, the boss of this company invited everyone back to the restaurant to eat early morning dim sum. I didn’t take any pictures because I wasn’t fully awake from sleeping late watching Chopped. But take my word for it, it was super awesome. If you live in Toronto or visit there, go to Casa Victoria. You won’t regret it 🙂
What do you think about the meal?

OMG, did you eat all that?? it looks yummy!
Unimaginable and unbelievable I know! Even to me and my stomach..but I did! It was amazingly delicious 🙂 After that meal, we all decided it was time to go back to the hotel room and drink some tea to help digest..haha
Glad that I am not hungry, because looking at all of that great food is awesome.
Man, thinking of that dinner makes my mouth water regardless of hunger. It was pretty awesome stuff!
Huge? That’s a meal for giants! 🙂 I love it and wish I could eat all! Oh Chinese people… we indeed always do eat so much in restaurants!
Especially at banquets…we’re all like food monsters. But then, whenever us, deprived Montrealers of good Chinese food, will look like we haven’t eaten in the last 10 years or something. haha! Its just what happens (at least for me and some of my friends). Toronto Chinese food is just so yummy 🙂
Oh my gosh! It all looks delicious! Well, okay, so I’m not the biggest fan of sea food – but it did look tasty; I’ might have had to try it all and see if perhaps it could bring my tastebuds around.
Trying new things is always fun! Hong Kong cuisine usually have a lot of seafood. As for Chinese cuisine, would depend where you are originating from. But definitely, try this stuff out if you get a chance..its pretty awesome 😉

What an assemblage of flavours! Melon soup and eel-filled pie shells? Sure seems interesting. I might give it a go next time I´m in the area. Thanks for the tip!
Lovely! I had it for a banquet so I’m not sure if its usually on the menu 🙂 Its a nice restaurant!
