MYST Asian Fusion Restaurant is a full-service restaurant with a comprehensive menu. Even though they label themselves as Asian Fusion, they are actually a Taiwanese restaurant. I like Myst because even when they call themselves fusion, they don’t serve anything they are not good at. For example, you will not see ramen or sushi here. Regardless of them calling themselves “fusion”, everything you see on the menu is quite authentic. Myst is located on Kingsway near Gilley Avenue, Burnaby.
Stregnth: Authentic Taiwanese taste, fast serving speed
Weakness: Limited parking
Other Taiwanese Restaurants
This is the first thing you see at the front entrance.
Located on Kingway
MYST is located on Kingsway, there are limited angled parking in front of the restaurant. They put the parking location plan at the back of their menu. Most of them are street parking nearby. There are some ballards in front of the store to prevent vehicle impact.
Even when they already have a 49-page menu, MYST is still constantly creating new items.
The front counter with neon colors
The first thing you see after you enter is the neon blue bar behind the neon pink colored cashier. There is always a plush toy next to the cashier. I have seen toy cow. This time it’s a unicorn.
Oriental pattern partition
To the left side of the entrance, there is an oriental partition. There is a waiting area on one side and a small dining area on the other.
Dining Area is bright
This is the main dining area with high ceiling. The horizontal dark-colored columns made space seem modern. You can also see the partition all the way to the staff’s neck height. These high partitions make the seats feel more private.
Taiwanese Sausage and Marinated Pork with Rice
The Taiwanese sausage and marinated pork with rice are loaded with toppings. Marinated pork on rice is a Taiwanese traditional cheap eat. This is like a deluxe version of that, adding eggs and Taiwanese sausages. These sausages are sweet and savory. Marinated pork contains lots of flavour. When it gets too greasy the sauerkraut can help reset the palate.
Traditional Railway Bento with Grilled chicken leg, pork chops, Taiwanese Sausage
The traditional railway bento is the lunchbox set sold on the trains in Taiwan. This one sold at MYST contains grilled boneless chicken leg, deep-fried pork chop, and sausage. It also has fermented cucumber and daikon. The grilled chicken has a wonderful smoky flavour. Deep-fried pork shop is very tender.
604 Food Critic Assessment
MYST has a pretty high price point at $20 per person. Their food is quite authentic, and the speed of bringing the orders to the table is very fast. All the dishes I have ordered have a good portion. I would definitely recommend MYST if you have not tried it yet.
