One of our favourite Hong Kong style cafe reopened near the Richmond Walmart at Mcclelland Road. It used to be on Park Road and the whole strip mall was closed for redevelopment.
Happy Day Cafe grand opening was on 20th February, 2019. It was still very busy after almost a month of opening when we visited. We waited about 20 minutes before we got a table, that was before noon.
There is a grand opening promo for a free upgrade of your drink and this offer is until 31st March, 2019.
Nanzaro ordered a Fish Soup Noodle for $12.95. He opted for the curry laksa broth which was quite disappointing because it was very mild tasting.
There is a new option for the noodle which is “yee mien”. There were plenty of suey choy in his noodle soup and he kindly offered me to have them. Continue reading
It’s the celebration of a colleague in the office. We initially wanted to order take out from Panos Greek Taverna but unfortunately, it was closed on Monday.
So, we had to go to plan B and went for Angel Cake Cafe. By the way, the birthday cake above was from Maxim’s Bakery on Fraser St. We always pre-order the cake for the 10% discount.
Here were what we ordered; Prawn and Chicken with Green Vegetable.
Honey Garlic Spareribs for the meat lover. Continue reading
Ben and I visited BT Cafe for dinner on a week day when we were in the neighborhood to run errands.
It’s been a long time since we came back to this restaurant. Even the banner has aged.
It was not too busy around 6:30PM. We noticed that the server knows the customers well from their conversation. They must be regulars and live the neighbuorhood.
Ben ordered his comfort dish; Egg Swirl Rice Noodle. This dish tasted right on the spot and the serving is quite big; enough for both of us to share. Continue reading
My family went out for dinner on a Sunday evening. When Ben asked what we would like to eat, everyone’s answer was “anything”. I’m sure Ben is frustrated with such answer as no one wants to take charge. Is this a common problem?
So, Ben had to decide again. He drove to Kingspark Steak House and we found a parking spot right in front of the restaurant. Perhaps, it was still early, just around 5PM. Parking has not been easy in this part of the strip mall.
Nanzaro ordered the XO Sauce Seafood Fried Rice. The serving was not as big as those we get from Enjoy Café 1+1.
I shared an order with Ben. We had the Seafood Chow Mien. This dish was rather disappointing. The sauce looked like glue. We will not order this dish again. The serving was also rather small. Continue reading
Ben and I returned to Angel Cake House for lunch when we were around the neighbourhood. I was hoping I can try one of their dessert after lunch.
We ordered one of the Combo Noodle to try. We had laksa broth with Hainanese Chicken and Fish Puff. There were a lot of oil noodle; our selection of the noodle.
The Hainanese Chicken were bone in and they were not very meaty. The Fish Puff turned out to be Fish Tofu instead.
We preferred the flavour of the laksa broth from Bubble Waffle House. We also like the boneless Hainanese Chicken from Bubble Waffle House.
We also ordered a Fried Sticky Rice to share. We always play safe when only the two of us are eating out. We will order one dish that can be packed home as we know we will not be able to finish two full servings.
The meal came with a free drink, we had one ice-coffee and one ice-milk-tea.
Once again, we do not have room for dessert as we had almost a full serving of the Fried Sticky Rice to bring home.
Our meal came to CAD25 including tax and tips. Angel Cake House accepts cash only.
Ben and I started our weekend ritual on a Friday evening. Ben usually picks me up from work and we will drive to some nearby neighbourhood for dinner.
For this Friday, we went to Angel Cake House for some comfort food.
Besides being a HongKong style restaurant, Angel Cake House also has a cake and dessert counter. We’ll see if we still have room for dessert after our dinner.
We ordered a House Special Chow Mien as we spotted our neighbour customer had some sort of chow mien which looks good. It did not disappoint as the chow mien was still crispy where the sauce has not soak into it. There were generous amount of assortment of meat on top of the noodles. Continue reading
I went out with my boys for dinner at Ironwood Plaza on a windy Saturday evening. Ben was still on his business trip.
We usually have dinner early, like between 5 to 6PM. However, Nanzaro was out running and we waited for him to return and shower. We arrived at Bubble Waffle Café close to 8:00PM and was surprised that we do not have to wait for a table.
Arkensen ordered the Boneless Hainanese Chicken Rice. The colour of the chicken rice was just off, too orangey.
Arkensen had iced coffee which comes free with the meal. The free drink only applies to coffee and milk tea. I had the hot honey lemon drink and Nanzaro had the iced version and our drink has and extra charge of 50cents. Continue reading
Nanzaro wanted a big dinner after his 21 km practice run for the marathon. We went to Enjoy Café after having consensus from Arkensen.
Our meal came with a free hot drink. An extra 0.75cents will be charged for cold drink. Since it is dinner time, I had the hot lemon honey drink so as not to affect my sleep later.
Arkensen ordered the Scallop and Bacon Penne in creamy sauce. I tasted a spoonful and it was tasty and creamy.
Nanzaro ordered the XO Seafood Fried Rice which is a new item in 2018. It was a little spicy. Continue reading
Ben and I went to Lansdowne Mall for lunch as we wanted to check out the carnival which takes place every spring break. I also wanted to check out my new cell phone picture quality as I had to let go of my old cell phone and camera which had broke down.
Nowadays, Ben and I cannot eat a lot. We usually share a meal for lunch and the only choice we can have is to go to a food court. Instead of going to our favourite Bubble Waffle Café, we tried Grill King this time. The server must have caught me taking a photo of the stall and he posted a smile for the camera, :-).
We shared the Korean Noodle Soup which was posted on the banner. We opted for grill chicken which was pretty good.
We do not find anything Korean about this noodle soup, just a regular Chinese noodle soup.
The combo meal came with a large cup of milk tea. It was a great deal for less than CAD7.00.
After lunch, we went outside to check out the carnival. This year, the carnival took place from 16th March to 25 March, 2018. Continue reading
Nanzaro, Ben and I went for lunch after church service on Sunday. It was a cold day and Nanzaro wanted something with hot broth.
Ben drove along Victoria Dr. and spotted the above Lim Kee Restaurant with Beef Noodle House on it’s awning. We thought it serves Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup.
Ben ordered the House Special Noodle and it turned out to be Vietnamese style beef noodle. No wonder we smelled the aroma of Vietnamese beef noodle while waiting for our order. The house special noodle soup comes with sliced beef, tendon and tripe.
Lim Kee Restaurant only serves bean sprouts with the beef noodle soup. There is no basil like most other Vietnamese restaurants. Continue reading
