After walking for 13km of Stanley Park seawall, my friend and I were tired, besides, we were soaking wet because of a sudden raining storm that we encountered while we were walking. We needed to sit down inside and to warm up, so we rushed into the cafe.

Delany’s Coffee House is on Denman street, close to English Bay. The cafe is warm and cozy, and you can relax for a long time. 🙂 Well, we actually did stay for about 3 hours!

I knew about this restaurant when I went to Eat! Vancouver. Since then, they were in my list, because their samples at the event were consistently tasty two years in row. When my friend, who worked in Burnaby, asked me to go for dinner, I suggested this restaurant.

Ebo Restaurant is in The Delta Burnaby Hotel, which has casino. They have $45 Taste of Ebo dinner, so we went for it. You choose starter, entree, and dessert from the dinner menu.

I had bought a groupon deal for this restaurant early this year, which was 10-course seafood tasting menu. Spring and early summer have always a lot of events going on, so I kind of pushed the plan for this out. Yet, it was expired soon, so I had to plan.

This time, the experience with C restaurant wasn’t good even starting. First, their Groupon required to call them instead of online booking, but their website doesn’t say when they open. I tried to call day and night, but auto response answered, so I ended up leaving a message for reservation as it said. It said they would call back, which never happened even on the late night before the reservation day, so I called again to re-confirm. A man answered and said that they didn’t call me back because they were full. Really? Is that how it works? And, they could put us earlier time, but if we came late, as there was a reservation for the table after us, our time would be in rush. Seriously… So, you try to bring food as fast as possible and kick us out? Anyways, as I had to use the Groupon, I booked the earlier time for next day.

On the booked day, Collin and I arrived on time, which is dinner opening time. We were seated while no one was there yet, and we ordered some drink and ordered one each from the menu if there was alternative. The server came back, saying he forgot what Collin’s drink was. Now, when the expediter brought the first dish, we realized the server didn’t understand what we ordered. (So, we missed lobster bisque. :() Collin asked again, this time to the expediter, that we wanted to taste each one if there was alternative.

Food was great, though.
