On a Collin’s day off, we just decided to walk before dinner and to eat out somewhere. The daytime in Summer was longer and bright, and it was nice to walk whether in the woods or not.

As he had never been to this restaurant, we chose to go. Jambo Grill & Good Morning Paan serves Iranian, Indian, African food. It is a walking distance from Joyce Skytrain station.

We ordered from their regular menu. He ordered an extra garlic naan, adding to his butter chicken curry.

He liked this, but he preferred butter chicken to the other place on Commercial Drive.

Nyama Choma Combo & extra Garlic Naan
(1 Lamb Kebab & Kuku Choma, 2 pieces of Masai Ribs, Masala Fries, Garlic Naan, Salad & Raita)

I ordered the same one last time and really liked it, so I did order again. The great thing with this plate is that you can enjoy different tastes little by little and you won’t get tired of eating.

I want to order something new next time! (I said that the last time, too. :))

My friend was moving out her place by the end of April, so our other friends and I helped her move her stuff from the old place to the new place. After everything was done, we were planing to have dinner together. As her new place is in Burnaby, we all were not sure where to go. One of us had an idea, and he called them to make sure the direction.

We went to Red Robin. It is located in Burnaby, but it is close to Coquitlam. I have been to the one in Vancouver downtown, which is sadly gone. They serve American/Canadian food. Are burgers main? Maybe. There were lots of family and birthday group.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Bottomless Beverage Lemonade

I asked the server before order if the lemonade is too sweet, and she said not too sweet. She was right. I enjoyed the sourness.

French Onion Soup (bowl)
(A freshly prepared favorite made from rich beef stock with caramelized sweet onions, topped with melted Provolone & Parmesan cheeses, served with garlic cheese bread)

My friends seem to love their French onion soup. In fact, I tasted and I liked, too.

Towering Onion Rings
(13 rings tall, sweet Spanish yellows seasoned, breaded & fresh fried, served with campfire mayo and ranch dressing for dipping)

Tower is a fun thing! I love onion rings, so I enjoyed some bite.

Bottomless Steak Fries

Red Robin Gourmet Cheeseburger
(Garnished with crisp lettuce, fresh tomatoes, pickles, red onions, mayo & Red’s pickle relish. You choose your favorite cheese:  Cheddar, Canadian Processed, Swiss, Bleu, Provolone or Pepper-Jack.)

Arctic Cod Fish & Chips (Yams instead)
(Premium, icy cold water Cod filets, hand-battered in a light tempura batter and crisply-fried, served with our Bottomless Steak Fries and our original dill & pickle tartar sauce)

I love yam fries, too. My friend switched to yam fries at last minute! 🙂 So I was able to taste some. So good! And, bottomless? Dangerous!

Chinese Dry Ribs
(1 lb of ribs tossed in coarse salt, pepper & toasted sesame seeds, served with garlic chili sauce for dipping)

The ribs were good, too. Maybe, a bit salty? It was fine with me, as I just had some bite.

My choice, Avo-Cobb-O Salad
(Crisp mixed greens with tender grilled chicken breast, black forest ham, hard-boiled egg, avocado, black olives, ripe tomatoes and crumbled Bleu cheese, served with warm garlic cheese bread & your choice of dressing)

Avo-Cobb-O Salad at Red Robin in Burnaby

It is rare to find Cobb salad with blue cheese, so I was happy to have it. The salad was huge, and I couldn’t even finish after sharing with my friends.

I was so surprised some of their food was bottomless! Good for wallet, but bad for body?! 😀

Right after all menus for Dine Out Vancouver was revealed on the site, I told my friends to take a look at it. I picked a few where I wanted to go and discussed with them where to go. The conversation went on and on, because the site was not easy to narrow your search, unless you know where you want to go and see the menu. This restaurant wasn’t originally picked, but because one of my friends said she really liked it when she went twice in the past and also they offered the same Dine Out menu for lunch with $18, we decided to go.

Seasons in the Park is located in Queen Elizabeth Park, which is in the centre of Vancouver resident area. Although Vancouver has a lot of raining in winter, it was clear a bit on that day so that we were able to see some view of Vancouver downtown and North Shore mountains from the restaurant.

We all ordered from their Dine Out menu.

Beef Carpaccio
(Micro Basil, Pickled Beets, Truffle Aioli, Ricotta Cheese)

We all ordered the same appy. I took time to choose though, as the entree was also beef. Unfortunately, this carpaccio was a bit bland to us. I probably would have appreciated if there was more dressing or salt and pepper.

Grilled Steelhead Salmon
(Herb Salad, Braised Lentils, Double Smoked Bacon, Truffle Oil)

Braised Beef Short Ribs
(Gremolata, Roasted Onions, Potato Puree)

Vanilla Gelato
(Amaretto Anglaise, Chilled Espresso, Biscotti)

Hazelnut Chocolate Torte
(Banana Puree, Whipped Sour Cream)

Both desserts were quite sweet. I asked the server to pack half of them.

And, extra picture of view from the restaurant.

Overall, it was good food with $18. Even my friend, who liked this restaurant, wasn’t so satisfied this time. Within the same group of the company, I liked Dine Out food at The Sandbar last year more than this.
