My family went to Kingsway for lunch. Nanzaro’s first choice of restaurant was unfortunately closed, so we ended up going to Happy Day Cafe.
It was just passed 11:30am and there was already a line up. We waited for half an hour before we got a table.
Ben and I shared a Shredded Pork Chow Mien. It was a big serving, good for both of us.
Nanzaro ordered the Minced Beef and Egg on Rice. It was a saucy rice dish.
Our orders came with a drink. Cold drink is a $1.00 extra.
Arkensen took the longest to decide what to order. He finally decided to have Baked signature Pork Chop on Rice.
Arkensen had iced coffee for his drink.
Happy Day Cafe accepts cash only. The meal came to CAD36 with tax and tips.

We were intrigued by the name of the dishes # 227 & 228. Maybe we will try one of them next time we visit this place again.
Ben and I went out for breakfast on a Saturday morning.
We revisited AAA Restaurant for breakfast. It was very busy, just like Lido.
I only ordered the Pineapple Bun since I’m not hungry. It was as good as Lido’s and is served hot from the oven.
Both of us had hot milk tea.
Ben ordered the Satay Beef with instant noodle.
The instant noodle option had a 50cents upcharge. Ben’s order came with a free hot drink.
Ben actually wanted a combo meal which comes with egg but the menus on were all in Chinese. When we asked for an English menu, we were only given the standard menu without the combo version.
This is a Cash only place.
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
My family went for supper at the relatively new AAA Restaurant on Alexandra Road. Nanzaro wanted to carbo-load before his long run training for Marathon. He is going for a 30km run the next day.
It was almost 9PM and the place was not too busy.
Paper table mat.
It has similar take out dessert offer just like Lido when you spend CAD22 and above. The offer is only for dining in between 12pm to 2pm and from 6pm to 10pm.
Arkensen ordered a Curry Beef Brisket with rice. It was quite a large serving. Continue reading
Ben and I went for an early breakfast on a Saturday morning. When we arrived at Alleluia Cafe, it was not opened yet, another 10 minutes to the opening time at 8:00AM. So, we went for a short walk before we returned to the restaurant.
Ben wanted something healthy, so he ordered the Nutritious Breakfast. It is listed as Tomato + Banana + Avocado + Poached Egg + Brown Toast. Literally, the items are served individually.
I ordered the Congee Combo as I knew Ben would like some hot Asian style breakfast too. I ordered the Fish Fillet Congee. Ben likes the congee which is slightly grainy.
I ordered the Soy Sauce Fried Noodle for the combo as it’s Ben’s favourite breakfast noodle.
Alleluia Cafe accepts cash only.
We were delighted to see Bubble Waffle Cafe opening a restaurant in Ironwood Plaza.
It is located next to the Browns Socialhouse on Steveston Hwy. We came here a week after it opens for business.
We arrived about 11:30am and got a table immediately. It got busier later.
The menu is definitely larger than the locations in the food court.
Nanzaro ordered the Fish Puff with Rice. It came in a hot plate. For this Teppanyaki Combo, one gets to choose either rice or egg noodle or Udon for the carbohydrate. The sauce option is either house sauce or Korean sauce. Nanzaro opted for rice with house sauce. Continue reading
What a coincidence. We had dinner at Kingspark Steak House on the same day we had breakfast at Kingspark Good Food.
The signature metal colour cup of Kingspark Steak House.
Arksensen ordered the Satay E-fu Noodle with Eggplant because he likes eggplant. The eggplants were piping hot.
Ben and I shared a dish from the Chinese dishes section which comes with a bowl of steam rice. Continue reading
It’s difficult to find a place for breakfast early morning. Ben and I were to Metrotown on a weekend for our morning walk. Ben managed to find an entrance to the Crystal Mall before 9:00AM. The entrance to the market area is opened earlier than 9:00AM while other entrances will not be opened until 9:00AM.
We had breakfast at the Crystal Mall foodcourt. Only a few stalls were opened at this early hour. We went to one of the Hong Kong style place.
Ben ordered the noodle with luncheon meat and fried egg. Continue reading
Arkensen is going for watch the Dota International Tournament in Seattle again. I heard that the pool prize for this year has risen to 20 million. The competing teams are all professional gamers whose full time job is playing computer games.
Anyway, since Ben was away for his monthly business trip already, Arkensen has to take the Greyhound bus to Seattle. Before his trip, he wanted something Asian for his breakfast as he will be eating Western food for a whole week.
He ordered his favourite Satay Beef with instant noodle. Besides the satay beef, he got to choose another ingredient which he opted for luncheon meat. He likes this dish here because there is no green and red peppers which he considers contaminating it.
His noodle came with a drink. Sorry for the blur photo as I took it with my cell.
Nanzaro ordered the Congee combo. His choice of congee is Fish Congee. The congee is already seasoned.
Nanzaro opted for the Steamed Rice Roll with his congee combo. The rice roll is very soft and tender. I just a bit of Nanzaro’s food as I already had my breakfast earlier before I went for my morning walk.
The bill came to $18 with tax and tips, cash only.
After breakfast, I drove Arkensen to the Pacific Central Train Station to catch his bus.
It’s been a long time since we last visited Alleluia Cafe.
One of the main reason we have not been back here is the parking which is really impossible at peak hours.
I ordered the Cheese and Mushrooms Omellete with toast.
The omelette was rather bland. I had to sprinkle some table salt on it which I seldom do. Continue reading
