For my birthday weekend in December, I asked Collin to go for brunch. As usual, we left home later than we thought, we looked for a restaurant somewhere close to Waterfront station, as he had to go to work after. I suggested a couple of places, and he agreed to one of them.

It was Tuc Craft Kitchen in Gastown, close to Woodward’s. I have been there with one of my friends for dinner, but for him, it was the first time.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

My choice, Berries & Gaufres
(Fresh Waffles, Blueberry Compote, Cream Cheese)

Gaufres are waffles in French. They were thin crispy waffles. If I liked it? Not so much, I mean, it was different. I prefer waffles like crispy outside and fluffy inside.

His choice, Crispy Chicken & Waffles
(Free run Chicken Breast, Savory Waffles, Dijon Mournaise)

Unlike me, he liked his dish. He seemed to like the combination of savory chicken and waffles. According to him, the chicken was crispy outside and moist inside. Plus, he liked the sauce, too. I couldn’t find what the Mournaise is.

It was nice that we still had time to spend together on that weekend, even after Collin and I enjoyed afternoon tea. Since it was his birthday weekend, I wanted to get something special for him, so we went shopping in Kitsilano area. Time went by, and we decided to have dinner around the area. I suggested eating Yakitori at a Japanese restaurant, but they’re gone! There was a new restaurant instead. We went back where we walked from and went in this restaurant.

The Noodle Box is on 4th Avenue, close to Burrard Street. They serve Southeast Asian cuisine. They are a casual restaurant that I could even say it’s a fast food restaurant. I have been to the restaurant in different locations, but I still don’t feel comfortable when I order. 😛

On some dishes, you can choose the spice level.

You can choose protein from chicken, beef, pork of Tofu. Prawns and free-run chicken are available with additional cost.

I ate chow mein before, so I chose this fried rice. There was some spice or ingredient that I didn’t like, but I couldn’t have figured out. I preferred chow mein.

It was Collin’s cooking day. As I didn’t have any particular food that I wanted to eat, he chose what he wanted to eat.

He made Katsu with chicken, i.e., chicken cutlet. When he makes Katsu, he pounded and make the ingredient so thin, which makes it cook easier and quicker.

Bulldog sauce was poured when this was served.

I should remind him that I need more cabbage with this amount of meat. He is good at cutting them that thin, so he wouldn’t mind cutting more! :p
