Early in November, I asked Collin to go to this restaurant for brunch, because he told me he wanted to try, and also because it was his birthday. I heard they have prix fixe brunch for $29, which I thought was reasonable.

Market by Jean-Georges is on 3rd floor of Shangri-La Hotel, which is the highest building in BC and is located in the centre of downtown Vancouver.

As we told them it was his birthday, they gave both of us a complimentary Mimosa.

We ordered from their prix fixe brunch menu.

All tasted so good. They seem to change the menu occasionally based on the seasonal or available ingredients, so some of what we ate are no longer in their menu. I would like to go back for my birthday. 🙂

My friend asked me to go out for dinner, so I picked some places and had her decide one. The place she chose was Burgoo Bistro on Main Street. It is located at the corner of 15th Avenue. I have been to the one in North Vancouver for lunch a couple of times and thought their menu was interesting. They have a brunch menu, but they serve a same menu for lunch and dinner.

My friend wanted to eat fondue when she found it on the menu, but she also wanted to have soup, because it was cold night as October. When we couldn’t make our decisions, I found combos, soup & salad and soup & sandwiches, which solved our problems. 🙂

We shared fondue as an appetizer, we each ordered soup as part of combos, and chose salad and sandwiches to share even as part of combos.
