My family was in the Delta/Surrey neighbourhood for a special event. So, we decided to have lunch here after the event.
Ben brought us to Tasty Indian Bistro in Delta. We were there before noon and got a parking spot without problem. But when we left, the parking lot was full. As we exited the restaurant, a lady approached us and asked us if we were leaving. She then stood at our spot and made a call, probably for someone that has been looking for a parking spot.
The decoration looks on the high end side.
I like the bronze cutlery.
Arkensen ordered from the lunch special; Non-veg Special for CAD13. He opted for the Goat Curry. The other option is Butter Chicken. The lunch special came with 2 pieces of Tandoori chicken on top of some basmati rice. Continue reading
Some of the praise dance group participants attended the following luncheon, including me.
The speaker is highly recommended by those who had heard his talk before. The talk at this luncheon is about happiness in work place. How many of you all are happy with what you are doing at work?
The ticket for this luncheon is CAD15 and held at the Continental Seafood Restaurant on Cambie Road, Richmond.
The luncheon started with a dim sum item, i.e. siu mai. Continue reading
Emily celebrated her birthday with me, Dora and Lorna at Tin Tin Seafood Harbour Restaurant.
We had booked a table for 5:30PM. When we were there, there was no customer yet. So, we told the server we will returned half an hour later. We went to Yaohan to do some shopping first.
When we returned, the restaurant had some customers already but not too busy yet.
Lorna had the honour to do the ordering. The above is Seafood Lettuce Wrap. The iceberg lettuce was very fresh and crisp. The seafood filings were made with shrimps, scallop and vegetables like carrots and water chestnut which give it some crunch. Continue reading
This is from a trip to downtown Vancouver.
Ben and I had a late lunch at Gyoza Bar on West Pender Street.
I guessed it was not busy because it had passed the peak lunch hour.
Ben had the Karage Curry. The deep fried boneless chicken was slightly crispy on the outside. Continue reading
Ben had to send the car for service at the BCAA Service Center in Surrey. We were there earlier than expected and decided to have lunch first in White Rock.
After looking for a while, we found this Penang Szechuan Cuisine as the name interests us.
The decorations is very Malaysian with “batik” cloth lining the tables.
You can click on the menu to have a larger view. Besides, a few “sambal” and curry dishes, the menu reviews that it’s more like a “chop suey” restaurant. Continue reading
On the way home from the Richmond World Festival, we noticed that Wo Fung had opened up a location on Park Road.
The new Wo Fung Noodle House is located at the strip mall behind IHOP on No. 3 Road. It is also in the same area where Kumare is.
Wo Fung was almost full house when we arrived. Luckily, we do not have to wait long for a table, just a few minutes. The condiments and water are set at a counter for self service.
We had to order their signature chicken wings for snack. They were served piping hot and they were crispy on the outside and the meat was tender. Continue reading
Ben and I attended the first night of the Honda Celebration of Light on a Saturday. We drove to downtown early to secure a parking spot before some road closures.
We had dinner at Ramen Danbo in Kitsilano before the event.
The restaurant is small and seating is tight. Ben decided to go for the summer special chilled ramen.
It is a colourful dish with a nutty dressing. Ben enjoyed the chilled ramen in a hot summer day. Continue reading
Ben and I was in North Vancouver for a hide. On the way back, we drove along Main St. to look for a place for dinner.
We came upon Shang Pin Beef Noodles and decided to give it a try.
It was not too busy when we were there. The server who attended to us was not too friendly though.
Ben had the Braised Briskets, Tripes, and Tendons Noodle in Beef Soup for $9.25. The broth was a little spicy as Ben commented. Continue reading
I joined Ben in downtown Vancouver on a week day after Ben’s meeting in downtown. We walked from Waterfront station to Chinatown and all the way to Science World.
After our walk, we went for an early dinner. We decided to have Vietnamese food. The Golden Garden Vietnamese Cuisine looks run down from the outside. But the interior looks better and it is quite big inside.
Typical Vietnamese condiments.
After we placed our orders, Ben went to the washroom which is located downstairs. Upon his return, he asked me to go to the washroom and said that I will not regret it. I thought the washroom is a fancy one. So, I went. To my surprise, (not the wash room) but what I found downstairs. The moment I opened the door at the lower level, I was greeted with the sound of Cantonese Opera. There is this secret room here with the wall posted with Cantonese Opera posters from floor to ceiling. I am a Cantonese Opera fan, so the discovery was ecstatic.
Back to the food, I ordered Grilled Skewed Pork and Spring Roll on vermicelli. The pork was on the dry side.
I had my vermicelli with some of the chili condiment to spice it up.
Ben ordered a Pork Hock Thick Rice Noodle Soup.
Credit card is accepted here.
After the Canada 150 Parade, Ben and I just walked about to look for a place for dinner.
We ended up with Gyu Don Ya, a small Japanese restaurant on Robson St. The restaurant was busy and there are not a lot of seating.
We were lucky to get two seats along a long bench seating facing the window.
We shared a Teishoku Japanese Set Meal with the option of Gyu Don, a rice bowl topped with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet soy sauce flavoured stock. Continue reading
