Pokerrito at Dunsmuir St., Vancouver

Arkensen and Nanzaro went for an ice hockey game in December.

They had dinner in downtown before the game. They went to Pokerrito because they love raw fish.

They went for the build your own poke bowls. You pick your protein, mix-ins, sides, toppings and sauces.

I only had Nanzaro’s meal details as Arkensen does not care to take the photo of his food. Nanzaro opted for the poke bowl with salmon and Ahi tuna. He selected citrus ponzu for his sauce. Continue reading

Kowloon Bay BBQ House on Westminster Hwy, Richmond

Ben went to look out for another BBQ place. The Parker Place BBQ is always busy with a long line.

He decided to try out the roast pork from Kowloon Bay BBQ House which is located in the same strip mall as N-Joy Cafe.

Ben loves it. The roast pork here is made from just the pork belly. This is similar to the HK BBQ Master style. I like that the chef (the person who chop up the roast pork) made the effort to arrange the meat nicely. Although the roast pork is from the belly, it is not too fatty. Ben has a new favorite now.

If I remembered correctly. one pound of roast pork is CAD11.

You can eat in too.

The above are some of the options.

Kowloon Bay BBQ House accepts cash only.

Below were the food we had at the potluck. It’s a Malaysian theme potluck.

I made “Asam Gai Choy” with roasted pork feet. The pork feet are rich in collagen. I like the Chinese Mustard vegetable which absorbs all the flavour of the the roasted pork feet. This dish is lightly tangy and spicy. Continue reading
