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?! 😀

As the weather forecast in Whistler alpine was gusty 60km/h on one Saturday in March, I skipped to go skiing. Instead, I decided to go to Gastown to have brunch. I had some places in my list, and I chose this new place.

Rainier Provisions is a new cafe-style restaurant in Gastown, opened in February. They’re a part of Heather Hospitality group, such as Salty Tongue Cafe, Salt Tasting Room, Everything Cafe, etc. They serve from a cup of coffee to fish pie. There are vegan and gluten free dishes, too.

I ordered from their lunch menu.

Medianoche Sandwich with Kale Caesar
(Cuban Sandwich of Italian Ham, Pulled Pork, Fontina Cheese on a Parker Roll with a side of Soup or Salad)

Oh my god! This kale caesar was so good! I will repeat next time, as they have the salad without sandwiches.

And, extra pictures of the restaurant interior.

Did you notice that the server had a iPad on her wrist? They take orders with it. 🙂

Back in September, it was a birthday month of two of my friends. So, I picked some restaurants and had my friends pick one. They chose Trafalgars Bistro.

It is located in Kitsilano. I have been there for Oceanwise celebration and wondered if their regular menu taste good, too. There is $30 3-course dinner as well, which you can choose one appy from soup, green salad, or caesar salad, one entree, and one dessert from Sweet Obsession where is their sister restaurant at the next door.

I can’t remember what kind of soup it was… But my friend (not only her but we all) didn’t like it and asked to change to the other soup.

Caesar Salad (as a part of 3-course)

I ordered this. It was puffy pastry, like hard version of cream puff.

As they have a sister restaurant, Sweet Obsession, there are too many to choose from. I wish they have pictures on menu so that we don’t have to ask for each dessert’s details. 😉
