Estea Beverage Club has been operating in Burnaby for as long as I remembered. I must have passed by it hundreds of times but only made it in a couple times. There wasn’t once that I recalled a great experience there; needless to say, there wouldn’t be a good incentive for me to return. However, Lun told me about his surprisingly good dining experience there which sparked my interests. I thought – why not give it another try and see?
The interior seemed have gone through a bit of renovation – at least it was different than what I remembered. Also – it’s operating with similar style as Bubble World and The One. That made me even more curious about how the food would taste like.

|Pickled Cabbage Hot Pot with Pork|
|Deep Fried Salty & Peppery Chicken|
|Deep Fried Pork Chop with Spicy Soy Sauce|
Since we all had a “surprisingly good” moment with our first visit, we went back again to try other items.
|Spicy Tofu Hot Pot|
|Kimchi Tofu Soup with Seafood|
|Deep Fried Pork Chop with Black Pepper Sauce|
|Satay Beef Fried Noodle|
|3-Spices Chicken with Rice|
The overall taste was quite decent but it was also a bit of hit-&-miss. The service was alright – they were quite courteous and attentive at least for our visits. The portion for some items was a bit smaller than expected. I think it’s not a bad option to go especially when Bubble World is super busy and the price at The One is creeping up a bit too much.
