After our walk at Queen Elizabeth Park, we went for breakfast.
We came upon King’s Chinese Cuisine as we turned out to Main Street. So, we had dim sum here.
The place was quite busy. We waited quite a while before our orders arrived. The above was Steamed Custard & Egg Yolk Buns. I like the sweet and savory taste of the filings. Regular dim sum (big, medium and small) is $3.38.
Just be careful biting into them as the filings can be very hot. Continue reading
Ben brought home a Bieninstitch from Breka Bakery & Cafe one day.
It was a huge cake.
Bienistich is a German dessert. It is made of sweet yeast dough with a baked on topping of caramelized almonds. This is filled with a cream.
The RCEFC Praise Dance Group ended in April 2017 due to some contract issue between the church and the Praise Dance Association.
The praise dance group had a farewell dim sum on the following Thursday at Royal Seafood Restaurant. Royal Seafood Restaurant offers 20% discount and free tea from Monday to Friday, except holiday for orders pay by 11:00AM.
This is what we had. The above is Baked Portuguese Sauce Seafood Pie. The pie shell was flaky. This is under Special Price at $6.50.
Beef Rice Roll (Large @ $5.95). Continue reading
Ben decided to go for the 4th July Fireworks this year. He said at least we watched it once in our life time. We were surprised that there was only 10 to 15 minutes wait at the border crossing. We left home about 10:00AM to have a brunch at Happy Day Restaurant before we proceeded with our day trip.
We stopped at a few places to do some shopping and to pass time. We ended up having dinner at V Star Buffet. We wanted something substantial for the long wait and drive home.
Here are some of the buffet items. Seafood on ice.
Deep fried seafood. Continue reading
On a weekend, Ben and I went to Union Square for an early lunch after our morning walk.
It was just after 11:00AM and there was no line at Deer Garden.
The menu is huge. I meant the size of the menu, not the number of items in the menu.
I ordered the signature fish soup combo. I had thick vermicelli with fish fillets and fish tofu (my initial choice was fish puff which they did not have that day). My choice of broth was something Chiu Chow pork. The broth was tasty. Continue reading
Ben and I went to downtown for our walk on a beautiful summer day.
We intended to go for lunch at a Korean place. On the way there, we walked past Banana Leaf on Davie St. and we were intrigued by their weekend brunch special. So, we changed our plan and had lunch at Banana Leaf instead.
We were greeted by a wall of awards on their wall of fame.
The above was their Nasi Campur Deluxe Set that brought us into the restaurant. There were 13 items on the tray, in small serving. This is a great way to introduce Malaysian cuisine to people who are not familiar with the cuisine. Continue reading
Ben and I went to get some stuff from Canadian Tire. After shopping, Ben decided to take a walk. Our walk ended at Aberdeen Center.
We decided to grab a bite at the Aberdeen Food Court.
Ben was not hungry. We just share a combo meal from Chef of Dumplings.
We added a dessert to our combo meal and the bill came to $10. Continue reading
On a weekend, Ben and I had our morning walk at the Minoru Park. Spring is the most beautiful season, according to Ben.
After our walk in the park, we walked over to the T&T across the Oval. After some light groceries shopping, Ben suggested to have lunch at Copa Cafe around the corner.
We had a short wait for a table as it was almost noon. The decoration is modern as this is relatively a new restaurant.
Water is served instead of Chinese tea like most other Hong Kong style restaurants.
We ordered from the mini set menu which comes with a drink. Ben had the Baked Portuguese style Pork Chop Cutlet on Linguini. Our food took quite a while to arrive. Continue reading
Ben had taken a couple of days off to clear his personal days. We decided to go to downtown for a walk. We got off the City Hall station as we remembered there are several nice cherry blossoms at the Vancouver City Hall when we drove past the area a day ago.
I just love to take photos of the cherry blossoms to capture a beautiful moment.
After that we continued our walk to Broadway. We ended up having lunch at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka.
The place was busy as it’s about lunch time. Seatings were tight.
Ben recommended me to have the Ikura salmon roe bowl combo. Continue reading
Ben and I went to Victoria Drive for a walk.
We had lunch at Hoi An Cafe as it’s been a long while since we visited this place.
We shared an appetizer for a start. We had the boiled pork and shrimp tapioca dumplings served with fish sauce.
There were quite a bit of Thai chilis in the garnish to give it a kick. Continue reading
