Happy Day Cafe on Kingsway, Vancouver

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.

Richmond Night Market 2017

Upon return to Bridgeport, we went to the Richmond Night Market near the River Rock Casino.

The theme for this year is prehistoric park.

The line into the market was very long. So, we bought the zoom pass which is slightly cheaper per entry and the most important factor is we can skip the line. Beware that it’s cash only in the night market.

Since we just had dinner, we only got a snack to try. Nanzaro wanted to had some fries.

He picked the Pho Fries, which is topped with a savory sauce, minced pork, sriracha, beansprout, cilantro and red onion. This is $7.50. Continue reading

Mr. Pretzels in Richmond Center

Lorna and I picked up a pretzel from Mr. Pretzels for snack while we were in Richmond Center.

My family used to get this type of soft pretzel from Metrotown a long time ago.

The pretzels are made at the spot.

We had the Parmesan pretzel which is in the savoury list of pretzel. It was quite messy eating the pretzel as the toppings kept falling off but it was good.

G8 Taiwan Kitchen on Oak St., Vancouver

Ben, Nanzaro and I went out for dinner on a Saturday evening. Ben wanted to walk across the Oak St. Bridge to have a view of the river. So, we parked on the side road near Costco and walked to G8 Taiwan Kitchen across the bridge.

We were there just shortly before 5:30PM and the restaurant was not open for dinner yet. We waited for about 10 minutes before it opened for dinner. The restaurant has a short break after lunch hour.

We ordered the pop corn chicken for our appetizer. They were crispy on the outside and quite moist inside.

Ben and I shared a large Tendon Beef Noodle. Continue reading

After lunch at Kung Fu Noodle, Arkensen wanted to get a bubble tea from the Parker Place Foodcourt.

Kung Fu Noodle had moved from Venezia Place to Parker Place.
