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.

Deluxe Nigiri (16 pcs)
(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!

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!

We had a birthday dinner party at our friend’s house. As I wrote yesterday, there were a lot of food for dinner. But, something is missing, right? Yeah, birthday cake!

As her place was in Burnaby, I asked the other friend to pick up some cake from the store in Burnaby. It is Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie. I have never been there, but my friend confirmed if they have individual cake, before heading there, and yes, they have. For whole cake, you need to order in advance, according to her.
