Ajea Noodle in Yaohan Foodcourt, Richmond

Ben and I went to do groceries shopping at Yaohan. We stopped by the food court to grab a light dinner.

We decided to try the new noodle shop, Ajea Noodle.

This is how it works. You get to choose your broth base; we went with the spicy broth at medium spiciness. Then you pick the ingredient and we opted for braised beef. The small cube beef was tender.

You then pick the noodles. We opted for the traditional thin noodles. Our bowl of noodle came to CAD10. You can be lavish by adding more other ingredients. We enjoyed the noodles.

 

Sharetea on No. 3 Road, Richmond

My family went to the newly opened Tian Shi Fu for dinner on their opening weekend.

We were there just after 5:00PM. However, the server told us that they only serve BBQ after 5:00PM. We were there try their noodles. So, we declined and we will be back for lunch some other time.

We then went to Szechuan Delicious Restaurant for dinner instead.

After dinner, the boys wanted to have a bubble tea. We went back to Sharetea which shares the restaurant with Tian Shi Fu for the bubble tea as they offer buy one get one free on the grand opening weekend.

Arkensen had the Coffee Milk Tea while Nanzaro had the Okinawa Pearl Milk Tea. These drinks are sure pricey.

Chu Resto in Aberdeen Foodcourt, Richmond

Ben and I went to Aberdeen Foodcourt to try the first Wu Han hot dry noodles in Metro Vancouver. This location is the fifth one in Canada.

When we were there, there is no line up at all.

Ben ordered the signature dry noodles which came with a small bowl of broth.

The signature dry noodles is heavy in sesame paste and is garnished with green onions, cilantro and some pickled vegetables. We had to add a lot of chili oil to add some spiciness to it. We also added some broth to thin out the sauce so that the noodles are not so clumpy.

Besides noodles, Chu Resto also serves marinated appetizers.

LA Chicken on Thorpe Road, Richmond

Ben went to buy dinner on a Friday evening.

He was craving for fried chicken and he decided to go to LA Chicken which we had not been to for a very long time. Ben and Arkensen love the chicken as they ate it right away. The chicken was crispy on the outside and moist inside.

The above price was 12 pieces of chicken. Credit card is accepted here. Ben said the restaurant was very busy when he was there. He waited for 30 minutes for his order.

The above is the promotion for mother’s day and Victoria day.

Bubble Waffle Cafe at Ironwood Plaza, Richmond

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

We went for the set meal with four dishes.

The complementary daily soup of dried bok choy was served first.

Daan Korean Cuisine at Garden City and Blundell Road, Richmond

My family went to a new Korean restaurant on Blundell and Garden City Road in Richmond for dinner. This new Korean restaurant is located just next to the Royal Seafood Restaurant. This dinner is for a birthday celebration for the April birthday boy.

We were there for early dinner just after 5PM. So, getting a table was not a problem.

Later into the evening, there was a short lineup. The restaurant was not too big.

We also noticed that quite a number of people came in for take-out because there is a 10% discount for take out on the soft opening.

Metallic cutlery which is popular among Korean restaurants.

Banchans which we got a second refill after we finished the first serving.

We shared two items among the four of us. The above is the Baby Octopus Hot Plate. We ordered the medium size which serves 2 to 3 people. We asked for medium spiciness. The sauce for this was rather sweet. Continue reading

Enjoy Cafe 1+1 on Westminster Highway, Richmond

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

Lunch at Ikea, Richmond

Ben and I had lunch at Ikea in Richmond after church service on Sunday. We enjoyed browsing in Ikea while getting our daily walk.

We started off with the Ikea waffles as they were on sale for $1.99, celebrating Swedish Waffle day. I found the waffle doughy. I am not sure what was in the little round pastry, but it was pretty fishy to me. It’s just me because I do not like strong seafood flavour.

We enjoyed Ikea’s coffee. Continue reading

Landowne Center Outdoor Spring Carnival

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
