I was a little late and was surprised (and touched) that family had set up a plate for me!
I am not surrpised that Come Along Seafood Restaurant had negative reviews on Urbanspoon. I found the waitstaff a touch rude - I felt like I was in traffic in Richmond as I got "cut off" and bumped into in my short stay at the restaurant, while I was walking to and from the table! There are so many great dim sum places in GVRD, and Come Along doesn't really measure up. But I suppose that they are inexpensive and in a very accessible location.
Family was nearly done eating when i showed up, but the turnip / daikon cake and the stewed tripe were what I liked best. The "Phoenix Claws" (chicken feet) seemed to be a favourite - as usual, the family picked it off before I could get a good shot of it.
The restaurant does offer something different - their fried rice included some sort of pickled vegetable which added a prominent flavour.
Not much else was really notable about Come Along...I'm sure I'll have a more lengthy entry for when I sit down for a full meal with the fam.
In any case, it was nice to have a couple minutes with the women in my family. My mom still cracks me up sometimes. Family antics, you just gotta love them. :)
