When we and our friends had a birthday dinner party, we also gave the birthday girl and boy some gifts, and they both looked happy about it. For the return, the birthday girl gave us some gift! Oh, she didn’t have to do that, but it was nice of her.

She got from Beta5 Chocolates. It is on Industrial Street, close to Main Skytrain station.

The tastes were Banana, Earl Grey, Whisky (on the left), I don’t know the purple covered, and Imperial Stout, and Olive Oil (on the right). And, you see the bottom? That is the flat chocolate bar!

My friend and I went for afternoon tea last Sunday in August. After we enjoyed the tea time, she said there was one place that she wanted to go before heading home. It was Beta5 Chocolates. I have heard of the name and known the approximate location, but we missed the turn to Industrial Street from Main street, because buses were running and we couldn’t see it. We approached from Terminal Avenue.

The store was like a warehouse or a storage unit, and if there was no sandwich board on the road, we could have missed the store. They sell not only chocolates but ice cream, too.

She got some for her parents. I didn’t buy any, since I had enough sweets at afternoon tea. 🙂 This place is now in my list for when any gift occasion comes up.

I wanted to go to this restaurant since I had heard about it on some of the blogs. My friend, who I used to work with, and her husband moved to Canada, so I had to get together and chose this casual Italian restaurant, Campagnolo on main.

I ordered from their lunch menu.

Crispy Ceci (Fried chickpea salad with chili, mint, and citrus)
