Bubble Waffle Cafe in Ironwood Plaza, Richmond

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.

Kingspark Good Food in Crystal Mall Foodcourt, Burnaby

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.

Honolulu Cafe on Kingsway, Vancouver

Ben wanted to go to Central Park for our morning walk on a weekend. We went out early like before 8:00AM. At this early hour, there seems to be very little choice of breakfast place.

The only place we found was Honolulu Cafe on Kingsway. The restaurant looks really dated. It was a quiet morning as I overheard a server chitchatted  with a regular customer.

Ben ordered a Congee Combo. He had the Fish and Liver Congee, a not so common combination. We like the combination though. The congee was already flavoured, so no extra condiment required.

The soy sauce fried noodle which Ben picked for his combo was more moist than other places. Ben said the congee and noodle is better than Happy Date Bakery and Restaurant in Richmond. (more…)

Max Noodle House on Alexandra Road, Richmond

Ben and I went out for our morning walk around 10AM on a Saturday morning. Ben was craving for some wonton noodle.

There is not many places that is open before 11AM for lunch. We started our walk from the Lansdowne Mall. We went to check out Tsim Chai but it only opens at 11:00AM. We then walk over to Alexandra Road. At that time, Max Noodle is still not open yet. So, we kept walking along Alexandra Road and came back to Max Noodle about 11:15Am and it’s almost full house already.

Ben ordered the Wonton with “Suey Gow” (dumpling) Lo-Mien. The soup came in a separate bowl. The lo-mien here is plain looking but they are flavoured. Some other places flavoured their lo-mien with oyster sauce. Ben likes the serving size here which is just right for him. (more…)

No. 9 Restaurant and Lansdowne Carnival

During a spring break weekend, Ben wanted to have Hong Kong style dinner. Where else is more prominent than No.9 Restaurant in Lansdowne Mall.

Ben ordered half a BBQ duck specifically for me as I love BBQ duck. I had both the drumsticks as Ben insisted.

We also shared a House Special Chow Mien. The boys like the crispy noodle. There were plenty of seafood and BBQ pork.

Fried Rice will not go wrong with our family as it’s our boys favourite. (more…)
