For Collin’s birthday, his family invited us for a restaurant, Le Crocodile. It is a French restaurant, located in the center of downtown Vancouver.

We were six of us, so I will write in three separate posts, appetizer, main, and dessert. This is about main dish. For appetizer, click here. There were a lot of specials for main dish as well and I couldn’t remember all.
