As I mentioned in the previous post, my friend and I went to Sakura Days Japan Fair. While we were waiting for our first food, sandwiches, we also picked something else to order from other food vendor. Although there were a few places set up tents, we stayed at this location. At this location, there were 3 more food vendors serving different food. One was Yakitori, Japanese grilled chicken skewer, which line up was too long. The others were Japanese-style hotdog or Takoyaki. So, we chose Takoyaki.

There were two more vendors selling Takoyaki at other tents. Takoyaki at this location was from Zipang Sushi. I have never been to their restaurant, but it is on Main street, in Riley Park area.

Sharing Takoyaki

Takoyaki itself was salty. The dough must have been seasoned too much by salt. We didn’t enjoy so much, because of it. I wonder they do the same at the restaurant.

As I wrote in the previous post, my friends and I went to a Vietnamese restaurant on Main street. Because they closed at 7, we were kind of rush to eat. When we were off the restaurant, it was still before 8 o’clock. We all were wondering what we should do, go home or go somewhere to chat. I suggested to have some dessert, as I knew there is a dessert cafe on Main street that opens at 7 pm.

Sweet Revenge Patisserie is close to King Edward Avenue. They open at 7 pm daily so that it is perfect if you want some sweets at night. However, the cafe is really small and can take 15 people at once. The cafe is dark and candles are on the table. A small parking lot is at rear.

My trifle was quite big, and I was full when I ate them all. (Well, I can’t take home, since they are soaked sponge cake, right?) My friends’ dessert was good, too. “Smooth Operator” cake reminds me of the cake at True Confections.

When we were chatting, still working on our dessert slowly, there was a line up in the cafe. So, depending on the timing, you might have to wait for a while.

A few days after having afternoon tea at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, my friends and I talked about the next food adventure. The conversation started from there were more places for afternoon tea, and it was extended to where your top 5 places would be that you like to eat before leaving the town. 🙂 One of the friends said that she didn’t know any places where she wanted to go particularly, but she had been craving for Pho and told us the place.

So we went. Au Petit Cafe is located on Main street, a few blocks away from Queen Elizabeth Park. They seem really popular in Vancouver, as I can find many blogs talking about this place. They serve authentic Vietnamese food, according to their website.

We planned to meet up there at 7 pm. One of friend and I arrived 15 min earlier, and when we looked at inside if the other friend already arrived, a staff inside was beckoning to us, so we went in. Right after we were seated, our server came, saying this was the last order! What? We looked at the door and realized that they close 7 pm! We called our friend what she wanted to order, but as she didn’t answer, we ordered Pho per person and one spring rolls to share.

I don’t know which part is authentic, but the rare sliced beef and soup was good and I liked their spring rolls. I can’t say that their Pho and spring rolls are the best in town to me yet.
