Nanzaro and I went to Yaohan Food Court for lunch on a Sunday late morning. We went there early because parking is difficult in this parking lot.
Look what I found, a new stall specializing in lamb soup, :-).
I ordered a small Lamb Noodle Soup to try. I can detect the lamb flavour in the broth but not very strong.
The chili was quite fragrant and I just spiced up the noodles with it. Continue reading
The Cattle Cafe on Kingsway is one of Ben’s lunch place to go as he works nearby.
We went there on a Sunday afternoon and there is just a few minutes of wait for a table.
Ben ordered from the lunch special with comes with a drink. Cold drink is charged $1 extra.
Ben ordered his favourite Oyster Rice in Soup. There were plenty sizeable oysters in it. Continue reading
Lorna, Marian and I met up at Tian Shi Fu Restaurant on a week day evening.
We love to catch up with one another every other month whenever possible.
There are some photos of celebrities and award winning photos at the entrance way into the restaurant.
I presumed this is a Hunan restaurant as chairman Mao’s photo is hung high in the restaurant. It was not busy at 6:30PM but it quickly filled up.
We started off with Leek Pie. It was quite a large serving as half of a pie is quite filing as an appetizer. Continue reading
On one of my groceries shopping trip to Great One Supermarket, Ben noticed some new product posters on Happy Date Bakery & Restaurant.
We went there for breakfast to check out the following.
They have Pineapple Bun Burger now. The price shown comes with a hot drink.
I ordered the Chicken Fillet Specialty Crispy Top Bun. It was alright, sweet bun with savory chicken fillet and some crispy lettuce. I do find that the pineapple bun burger is slightly pricey. Continue reading
I admit that I’m weak when coming to food. Ben tempted me to go to Lucky Noodle, next to the Bubble World we just stopped by.
Since I have not been here for a while, I surely agreed.
I ordered the Chinese Restaurant Award winning dish of Stir Fried Slicked Pork with White Chili. I like the combination of crispiness and chewiness textures of this dish.
Ben ordered the Garlic Stems Stir Fried with Smoke Bacon. The smokiness from the bacon was really pronounced. The lunch special came with steam rice.
You can have daily soup or soy milk for the lunch special. I had the hot soup while Ben had the cold soy milk.
This restaurant accepts cash only.

On a lovely Saturday morning, Ben and I wanted to go for a walk in Central Park. Before the walk, we decided to grab a light breakfast in Crystal Mall food court.
We decided to share a bowl of noodle from Bubble Waffle Cafe. There were not many stalls that open that early.
We had a Spicy Minced Pork Mixed Noodle. It was on the salty side but we like the numbing spiciness of it.
I also ordered a plain bubble waffle to snack on. It was crispy on the outside and lightly chewy inside. The bill came to $8.50.

I picked Silkway Halal Cuisine for Mother’s Day and birthday celebrations. I felt short change because my birthday is near mother’s day and I only got to celebrate once.
The parking spots at rear are quite small and difficult to park.
This was a Sichuan restaurant before and now it changed to a halal restaurant. So, Muslim can eat here.
The decoration is still the same as the previous restaurant. The theme of wooden furniture has an antique look to it. Arkensen commented that the chairs are very uncomfortable as they are hard.
We saw the Chinese award plaque as we walk to our table.
We ordered the award wining Sliced Lamb with Pickled Cabbage in Hot Pot. It was alright. The sourness of the pickled cabbage kind of whet up our appetite. This soup is slightly spicy as there are some green chilies in it. Continue reading
It was a beautiful Sunday morning. Ben and I went to QE Park for a leisure walk.
It was a very pleasant morning as it was not too sunny for a walk. I actually enjoys cloudy days.
After the walk, we went to Chinatown for early lunch. It’s been a while since we come down to Chinatown. We can clearly see revitalization here with a lot of new buildings.
We ended up having lunch at Gold Stone Bakery & Restaurant on Keefer Street. The restaurant is surprisingly big.
Ben wanted a light lunch. He ordered two pineapple buns for himself. But I stole one from him. Continue reading
Polly and I went for a pre-mother’s day celebration on a Friday morning. We intended to go to Beard Papa’s but it was not opened yet at 9AM. Apparently, Beard Papa’s has changed it’s business hour to start at 11AM. I emailed Beard Papa’s in March and was told it’s opening hour was 9AM at that time.
Well, since Beard Papa’s is not opened yet, we decided to go for dim sum nearby at Parklane Restaurant which opens at 9AM. Since it just opens for business for the day, it was still pretty empty but tables quickly filled up.
Tea charges is $1 per person.
We ordered one of the special of the day which is Clay Pot Rice with Sparerib and Chinese Sausage. It was a pretty good serving size considering the price is only $3.95. Continue reading
This was another pre-business trip dinner before we dropped off Ben at the YVR.
Ben wanted something simple, so we just went to Kingspark Steak House for Chinese meal. The above was the complementary daily soup which comes with the Chinese dishes order. This had carrot, some kind of preserved vegetable and pork in it.
Ben ordered the Sweet and Sour Pork which is a very Cantonese dish. This has a balanced sweet and sourness which is one of the better one that we had. Continue reading
