After I got some dessert from the donuts shop, I met up with Collin. Although it was a weekend, he finished his shift earlier and he said he was starving, so we decided to go somewhere close to where we were. Since he was starving, we skipped the restaurants that serve light meals.

We ended up going in Cactus Club Cafe on Burrard Street. It is across from the Burrard Skytrain station. They have various dishes in the menu.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Szechuan Chicken Lettuce Wraps
(Local Chicken, Sweet and Spicy Szechuan glaze, Peanuts, Wontons, Korean Chili Sauce, Spicy Yogurt)

This was his choice. I had some bite and liked it, although it was quite spicy. He loved this and said it was addictive. 🙂

Wor Wonton Soup
(BBQ Pork, Peking Duck Broth, Lemongrass and BBQ Pork Wontons, Asian Noodles, Baby corn, Mixed Vegetables)

He also ordered this. The broth was really salty to me, so he can’t even drink much.

Fish Tacos
(Ocean wise Lingcod, Chipotle Aioli, Shredded Green Cabbage, Salsa Fresca)

This was my choice, as I read a blog post saying it tasted so good. Yeah, I liked this. There was fried fish in the taco. As dinner, it might be small, though.

My friends and I were at a Taiwanese restaurant for our last dinner together until one year later. We were checking out their dessert menu, but we left the restaurant without having any dessert, as some of us already had milk tea and also we couldn’t find what we wanted to order.

On the way home, one friend said to go somewhere for dessert. We don’t have much information around the area, so we decided to go to Cactus Club Cafe near Metrotown. The restaurant is on Kingsway and open till late.

We each ordered some dessert or drink.

The Perfect Double Cuervo Margarita
(Fresh hand-squeezed Lime Juice, Cuervo tequila and triple sec, shaken with Egg Whites)

Apple Galette
(Flaky puff pastry, Caramelized Apples, Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream, Caramel Sauce)

Chocolate Lava Cake
(Molten dark Chocolate Cake, Raspberry Coulis, Tahitian Vanilla Ice Cream)

I knew the galette would be big, so I chose the lava cake. I liked it, although I found it sweet. The sourness of raspberry coulis was helpful for that.

Collin worked on a day shift and said that he didn’t want to cook that night. He said he could eat this or that, which usually sounds anything is fine. 😀 As I had a gift card given by my boss and had it for a long time as well as there was one open in a new location, I suggested going to this restaurant.

Cactus Club Cafe’s new location is beside Canada Place. When we got there, the waiting time was almost one hour, and Collin said he can’t wait. 😦

Well, I know there is one on Burrard street, so we went there instead. This location is across from the Burrard Skytrain station.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Signature Caesar

Signature Sangria
(Spanish cocktail, fresh Strawberries and Raspberries, Zinfandel, Apricot brandy, Sprite and a splash of Bellini)

I liked this Sangria. And, so did he! He ordered the large one after he finished his caesar.

Crispy Dry Ribs
(Sea Salt, Cracked Pepper)

I believe it is supposed to be salty, but it was so salty. It tasted good, but I felt guilty to eat, because of my health. One or two was enough for me.

Large Sangria

Fajitas with Cajun Chicken
(Black Beans, Salsa Fresca, grilled Cajun Vegetables)

He seemed to enjoy his Fajitas. He ate them all way faster than I finished mine!

Millionaire’s Cut
(7oz chargrilled Filet Mignon, white wine sauteed creole Jumbo Prawns, buttered Mashed Potatoes, seasonal Vegetables)

Oh, this was a huge meal. It totally filled my stomach. It was so good that I couldn’t stop eating.

It is good to have a gift card when you order expensive food, eh? :p
