In early December, Collin said he wanted to go a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown, where we went a while ago and liked their food. They don’t take a reservation, so we just headed to the restaurant. When we arrived, there were a lot of people inside standing, and we realized there was a note on the door, saying closed for private function. Sigh. We came all way down here and couldn’t go. We headed back to Stadium station and were thinking about an alternative.

Collin said he wouldn’t mind eating Sushi, so we went to Tsuki Sushi Bar. It is on Abbott street, close to Pender. They serve mainly Sushi, and I don’t think they have any deep-fry stuff.

We ordered from their regular and special menu.

I liked Abbot Roll, which consists of Tuna, BBQ salmon, skin, lettuce, cucumber, mayo and Masago. We didn’t like their Dynamite Roll last time and totally forgot about it. We still didn’t like it. Their Dynamite roll was torched with Tsuki sauce.

We are not a fan of Uni, sea urchin, but since it was on special, I ordered one. It was fresh, so I didn’t mind eating it.

Torotaku Roll, Kappa Roll, Rainbow Roll, Kani Special Roll

I liked Torotaku last time, so I ordered it. It is a combination of Toro and Takuwan (pickled Daikon radish). Kani Special Roll was good. It contained real Dungeness crab. I’m not sure if I liked Rainbow Roll, although we ordered last time, too. I wouldn’t order it next time.

We were full, but he had already decided to order this dessert since he saw it on their special menu.

Mochi Ice Cream 2pcs

This is ice cream inside covered by Mochi (pounded sticky rice). There were two choices to choose from, vanilla or match. Collin ordered two vanilla, and I ordered one each. Mochi on match was little bit dry.

They open Sundays now. Their price seems up quite a bit, compared to the last time.

On the last weekend in October, I had a plan to meet my hiking friend. It had been almost two months since our last hiking together, as our timing wasn’t met or the weather wasn’t good. This time also, we didn’t go hiking. Instead, we planned to have tea.

As I mentioned a few times before, Sunday isn’t good for going cafe or restaurants. Anyways, the first two places in Gastown where we tried were closed due to Sunday. So, we went to Acme Cafe. It is located on Hastings Street, close to Woodward’s building. They open even between lunch and dinner time, which is great.

We both ordered a piece of pie.

I looked at the post on my previous visit, and I realized I ate the same thing! Although this lemon pie is good, I would like to try something different next time.

Note that the price is slightly up since the last visit.

A night before Collin and I decided to go to the Christmas Market for the first time, I actually sent a message to my friend if she wanted to join us. Unfortunately, when she read it, it was too late to meet us on time. Anyways, it was a cold day, so I suggested to stay home and we will plan later.

For the following weekend, I was checking the weather in Whistler for skiing, and it said gusting 35-80 km/h. Besides, I was too lazy to exchange my ticket, so I decided to go skiing on Sunday. Well, since I decided my schedule, I sent a message to her and we planned to go to the Christmas Market on Saturday.

Because we met up at 11:30 am, there wasn’t a line-up at all. The weather was also not too bad, either. At least, the raining was stopped by then. (It would be cumbersome by umbrella if it was raining.)

The pictures today were taken on my third visit.

We got some food for lunch.

Grill Bratwurst from Black Forest Meat & Sausages

I chose this, which Collin chose at the first visit. My friend ordered Hazen on a bun.

While we were eating, I told her if she wanted to see the ornaments in the building we should go right away, as the line-up would be crazy. So, we did. In the building, there were lots of ornaments, nutcrackers, candle stands, incense, etc. The ornament she saw on TV seemed to be sold out, and she took a different color one. She wasn’t sure if she really wanted to buy, and when we went back to the rack, that color ones were all gone, too! Now, she was so happy to have held it. 😀 She said she should have come earlier, though. Oh well, if there is something that you would like to have, I recommend to visit earlier, since the market is open in November.

When we got out of the building and looked around booths for gifts, the line-up for the ornaments was growing. We were glad we went there first.

Looking around German gifts, she said it was a dessert time.

What she ordered was strawberries and vanilla cream puff in the stick. The pricing board says Fruit Sticks or Marshmallow Sticks, but there were sticks with fruit AND marshmallow, too. So, I’m not sure how much it was. Once this was given, the chocolate was quickly firmed. I tried some, and it was good.

Well, I want to go back one more time before Dec 24 and see how it looks like at night!
