Just before the Christmas time last year, I got contacted by my friend whom I went to the same school with. I hadn’t seen her for a year, so yes, I was definitely looking forward seeing her. She also invited our common friend. I didn’t even remember when was the last time I saw the friend.

We got together at a cafe in downtown Vancouver first, because one other friend joined us. After he left, three of us decided to have dinner. As my friend needed to go to Metrotown for errands, we headed to Burnaby. The shopping at mall in the Christmas time was crazy, but finding a parking spot was crazier! Anyways, by the time when we finished the errands, it was getting late. We didn’t know where to go for dinner, so I took them to Pearl House, a Taiwanese restaurant.

We ordered from their menu to share. My friends didn’t know what to order except beef noodles, so I suggested the dishes from my previous visit. Unfortunately, beef sirloin was sold out…

Instead of beef sirloin, we took advice from the server and ordered beef tendon one. Well, none of us liked the tendon. Nothing wrong. We were just not familiar with the texture. It was probably my first try, and now I know I wouldn’t order the tendon next time anywhere. 😀

Shredded Chicken with Green Onion & Ginger Sauce

This was my other friends’ recommendation in my previous visit, Dong-an Ji (stir-fried chicken). It is spicy, but it tastes so good.

When I told my friends there was Mapo Tofu, they responded right away that they wanted to eat! 😀 And, I’m glad they liked it.

If I go to the restaurant again, I want to order something else. Any suggestions?

The last Saturday in October was still nice weather. It was already cool down, but sunny. My friends and I, and a little dog, went hiking in Anmore/Port Moody area. It was a short walk but we all enjoyed the time. We didn’t bring lunch and we all were starving when we came back to where we started. One of the friends called her husband to order Sushi for us, and we had it at her place.

Sushi was ordered from Sushi Bar Kilala. It is a Japanese-owned store. I have never been there, so I don’t know the size of the restaurant.

(3pcs Tekka Maki, 3pcs Kappa Maki, Uni, Ikura, Surf Clam, Amaebi, Hamachi, Salmon, Tuna, Saba, Tako, Unagi, and egg omelet)

This was quite a volume! Each of Nigiri piece was big, and fish pieces were fresh. I was full and satisfied after eat! Too bad, the place is not near my house.

On the second day of the Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend, my new friends whom I met at the baby shower, and I planned to go to the Grouse Grind. It was the first time for them to try. 🙂 After we got over it, we headed to Burnaby, where one of the friends live, for having late lunch.

Luckily, as the middle of long weekend, this restaurant was open, Wah Lun Chinese Restaurant. It is on Hastings Street, close to Willingdon Avenue. They have dim sum menu, too. I think you can order them until 3pm.

A husband of my friend ordered for us, for four.

Seafood Chow Mein

This wasn’t in the list that we ticked with a pen, but he ordered it outside the paper. He asked the noodles as hard (fried) one. This reminds me of Kata Yakisoba that I eat in Japan. It tasted good.

This was new to me, and I liked it. I could eat more!

Deep Fried Chicken Joint with Peppery Salt

This is chicken cartilage. Yup, I liked them, too. There were a lot to finish. 🙂

Cod Jaw with Ginger & Green Onions

This was also new to me. Basically, you just suck the piece and take fish meat out of the jaw bone. It was marinated with sweet sauce.

Dumpling is always good, right?

I liked all of his choices. We couldn’t finish them all, so we took the leftover home. And, for these volume, look at the total price, so cheap! I’m looking forward another opportunity!
