Karakoram Restaurant in Victoria Drive, Vancouver

On a weekend, my family went to Karakoram Restaurant for lunch.

Karakoram Restaurant took over Tibisti which was also a middle eastern restaurant which offered all you can eat.

We were there before noon and the restaurant was very quiet. It is still an all you can eat place.

We went to take a quick look at the buffet before we decided to go ahead with the all you can eat at $14.99 per person. The above are the salad and condiment bar.

Chicken Biryani, Lemon Potatoes, Mixed Vegetable Stew, … (more…)

Panos Greek Taverna on SE Marine Dr, Vancouver

My office celebrated the birthday of a colleague on a Friday. We ordered lunch from Panos Greek Taverna on SE Marine Dr which is 5 minutes drive away.

My colleague called up Panos Greek Cuisine to place the take out order at 11:00AM, when the restaurant opens for lunch. We told the restaurant that we will pick up our orders at 12:00PM. When one of my colleague arrived at the restaurant 5 minutes past 12:00PM, he was asked to wait. He waited for 20 minutes before our food were ready. That is how busy the restaurant is.
I had the Chicken Souvlaki which comes with Greek salad, potato, rice and tzatziki. All of us swapped the tzatziki with hummus except one but somehow, all our orders came with hummus. We preferred hummus as it goes better with the pita bread.

There were plenty of pita bread left over as most of us only had half a pita bread.

Here are some of the items that my colleagues ordered: Prawn Souvlaki. (more…)

ML JianBing in Henderson Place Mall, Coquitlam

After the hike at Belcara Regional Park, we went for lunch at Henderson Place Mall in Coquitlam.

The food court was not busy like those in Richmond.

Ben and I decided to try ML JianBing, a northern Chinese cuisine stall.

We ordered one of the item from the “Today’s Special”.

The Cold Noodles was al-dante, or “QQ” as the Chinese call it. It is slightly tangy as the sauce has vinegar in it. (more…)

Hiking at Belcara Regional Park on Labour Day Long Weekend

On the Labour Day long weekend, Nanzaro, Ben and I decided to go for a hike at Belcara Regional Park. We could not get a parking spot at our earlier attempt this summer.

So, this time we headed out early, at 7:00am. There were plenty of parking this time.


We did 3 trails this time; the Woodhaven Loop Trail, Woodhaven Swamp Loop Trail and the Sesamat Lake Loop Trail.

I was a little concern with the above signage.

It was very peaceful and quiet when we arrived at the White Pine Beach. (more…)

Octopus House in Crystal Mall, Burnaby

Since Ben and I attend church near Burnaby, we often take the opportunity to have lunch in Burnaby.

One of our favourite place is the Crystal Mall. For this occasion, Ben decided to try the “Cold Noodle” from Octopus House in the market area.

It looks healthy with a lot of vegetables, :-).

It’s a take out place. We intended to bring it to the food court to eat. I’m sure we are not supposed to bring outside food to the food court. So, Ben bought another item from the food court. (more…)

A scary alien sculpture.

The world first life-size 3D-printer car. (more…)

Ben and I went to PNE on a Friday to avoid the crowds on weekend.

We were there at noon, so we decided to grab a bite first. We wanted to try a new item this year, which is the Deep Fried Burger.

The Deep Fried Burger was juicy and it had cheese and ketcup in it. The burger was CAD12.

After eating, we went to watch the 1PM show of Knights of Valour, a medieval event where knights competing in jousting at the Agrodome. This is a new event this year.  (more…)

Tin Tin Seafood Harbour Restaurant on No. 3 Road, Richmond

I had the opportunity to attend praise dance in the summer.

For this last occasion for me, I joined the group for dim sum after praise dance. This particular group always go out for dim sum after the praise dance to get to know one another better.

We went to Tin Tin Seafood Harbour Restaurant this time. The organizer had reserved two tables. This place was full house and we had to wait a few minutes as one of our table was not ready yet.

Tin Tin Seafood Harbour Restaurant does not charge for tea which is a good thing.

One of the lady took charge to order as the rest of the group were busy chatting. The above is Spicy XO Sauce Rice Noodle with Shrimp. This was really good.

We ordered three servings of the Eggplant with Shrimp Paste as one of the lady suggested not to cut them into smaller pieces. (more…)
