I cannot remember why, but I had something to do in downtown Vancouver on a weekday. By the time when I finished, it was almost 8pm. It was a really cold day in early January, so I decided to take something warm to home.

I went to Joyeaux Cafe & Restaurant. It is a Vietnamese restaurant on Howe street. I have been a few times, and I always chose noodles. I had read a blog, talking about this restaurant and suggesting a different dish.

I ordered the one to go, as followed the blog’s suggestion.

Umm, it was fine, but a bit greasy, and the skin wasn’t crispy enough for me. I would stick to noodles next time, although it might not be good for to-go. 🙂

I wasn’t feeling well on and off for quite a while in November, and I was tired of eating light meal. Suddenly, I had a craving for curry, so I decided to get some. Well, I could have made at home, but I was just being lazy. 🙂

I went to ZAC-ZAC Japanese Curry House. They are located in the food court at H-Mart in downtown Vancouver. They are specializing in Japanese curry, but they also have Donburi and Bento box menu.

I ordered from their curry menu to go for me and Collin.

Haha, both looked same! Compared to last time, their to-go container has been changed. For the taste? No change, that’s good. The cutlet was crispy even after I took home.

Like last time when I ordered, they asked the spiciness level, mild or regular, and I didn’t remember which level I had chosen before. Mild seems like little sweeter.

It was a weekday evening, and I had a Vancoupon booklet, so I got 5% off. You can get it at locations in the list here.

Still talking about food in September, Collin and I decided to go for brunch on the last weekend of September. I was searching for a place the night before the weekend. I didn’t feel like eating sandwiches, and there wasn’t a place where I eager to go.

So, for my curiosity, because everyone seems to like this restaurant, I chose Hawksworth Restaurant. They are located in Rosewood Hotel Georgia across from the Vancouver Art Gallery. There is a cafe beside them, which I have been a few times. Both the restaurant and the cafe are owned by a same person.

We didn’t make a reservation, but we managed to get a seat right away. The restaurant was packed, so it is probably recommended for a reservation.

I was surprised by the price of the coffee. It was expensive to me for one person. (It might be charged per table?) Well, I liked my choice of food, though.
