Since Collin’s mom was here, we planned to get together including his grandma. They picked us up at Lougheed Skytrain station and headed to the nearest restaurant that they were familiar with.

White Spot is a Canadian chain restaurant, which locations are various in BC and Alberta. They serve variety of food, salad, burger, Italian, Canadian food, etc. And, I found milkshake on the menu! I shouted at Collin about it, because I was so excited. 😉

We ordered from their burger menu. I took pictures of only my order.

The Legendary Burger with Sweet Potato Fries
(Traditional 1/4 lb. beef burger with their signature Triple “O” sauce, and lettuce & tomato)

The burger was good. I think the quality is high as a chain restaurant.

As I shouted about the milkshake, Collin’s mom suggested sharing with his grandma. His grandma didn’t want any, so I asked the server for half size. (I’m not sure if it was OK, but she brought a glass.)

Chocolate Milkshake

Oh, I was so happy about this. 🙂 I loved the one at McDonald’s in Japan, but when I tried here in Canada, I didn’t like. Now I can have one anytime at White Spot!

Oh, do not think there is a new store open in Coquitlam! Back in May, when Collin’s mom visited him and they went to Lougheed mall, kids were selling those donuts in front of Walmart. So he got some for home.

I have heard of this seem-famous donuts from my friend before, but when I searched for it, the closest store was in Delta. As I don’t have a car, I didn’t have a chance to try.

It was sweat and good. You know, if you can’t get easily, everything is good when you get, both tasting and feeling! The only problem is you have to eat them all before soggy. :p

My friend was moving out her place by the end of April, so our other friends and I helped her move her stuff from the old place to the new place. After everything was done, we were planing to have dinner together. As her new place is in Burnaby, we all were not sure where to go. One of us had an idea, and he called them to make sure the direction.

We went to Red Robin. It is located in Burnaby, but it is close to Coquitlam. I have been to the one in Vancouver downtown, which is sadly gone. They serve American/Canadian food. Are burgers main? Maybe. There were lots of family and birthday group.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Bottomless Beverage Lemonade

I asked the server before order if the lemonade is too sweet, and she said not too sweet. She was right. I enjoyed the sourness.

French Onion Soup (bowl)
(A freshly prepared favorite made from rich beef stock with caramelized sweet onions, topped with melted Provolone & Parmesan cheeses, served with garlic cheese bread)

My friends seem to love their French onion soup. In fact, I tasted and I liked, too.

Towering Onion Rings
(13 rings tall, sweet Spanish yellows seasoned, breaded & fresh fried, served with campfire mayo and ranch dressing for dipping)

Tower is a fun thing! I love onion rings, so I enjoyed some bite.

Bottomless Steak Fries

Red Robin Gourmet Cheeseburger
(Garnished with crisp lettuce, fresh tomatoes, pickles, red onions, mayo & Red’s pickle relish. You choose your favorite cheese:  Cheddar, Canadian Processed, Swiss, Bleu, Provolone or Pepper-Jack.)

Arctic Cod Fish & Chips (Yams instead)
(Premium, icy cold water Cod filets, hand-battered in a light tempura batter and crisply-fried, served with our Bottomless Steak Fries and our original dill & pickle tartar sauce)

I love yam fries, too. My friend switched to yam fries at last minute! 🙂 So I was able to taste some. So good! And, bottomless? Dangerous!

Chinese Dry Ribs
(1 lb of ribs tossed in coarse salt, pepper & toasted sesame seeds, served with garlic chili sauce for dipping)

The ribs were good, too. Maybe, a bit salty? It was fine with me, as I just had some bite.

My choice, Avo-Cobb-O Salad
(Crisp mixed greens with tender grilled chicken breast, black forest ham, hard-boiled egg, avocado, black olives, ripe tomatoes and crumbled Bleu cheese, served with warm garlic cheese bread & your choice of dressing)

Avo-Cobb-O Salad at Red Robin in Burnaby

It is rare to find Cobb salad with blue cheese, so I was happy to have it. The salad was huge, and I couldn’t even finish after sharing with my friends.

I was so surprised some of their food was bottomless! Good for wallet, but bad for body?! 😀
