When I had Pho for dinner, now I wanted to have some sweet. As I had a lot of bags from Farmer’s Market and a birthday gift for my friend, I just wanted to get something to go.

I went to Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie Cafe, close to Burrard Skytrain station, and chose one of their cake. As always, the cafe was packed by people.

I thought I might have had this one, but as far as I looked at my past posts, this was the first time. Hazelnut was strong, and I don’t remember more than that. 🙂

Beside the last two places, I had to check the menu of one of my favorite restaurants for Dine Out Vancouver. When I looked at their dine out menu, I really liked it and asked my friends, whom I went there with for Dine Out Vancouver last year, and one of them was excited to go there with me. 🙂

Fishworks serves seafood with reasonable price and decent amount, and moreover, it tastes good. It is located at Lower Lonsdale in North Vancouver and in a walking distance from Lonsdale Quay Seabus station. The dine out 3-course meal was provided by $28.

My friend liked this when we went there in their Halibut Festival, so she ordered again. 🙂

My appy, Dungeness Crab
(In Coconut Soup with Enoki Mushrooms)

As you might have noticed, the bowl was bigger! It seemed that the chef gave me extra, maybe because I come often and take my friends. 😉

My friend liked her appy, as she loved cilantro. (I have no comments, as I don’t like cilantro. :P) I was worried about my appy, because I don’t like coconut texture, but it was smooth soup with kick of spice and I really liked that.

Her entree, Ling Cod
(Jerusalem Artichoke and Winter Vegetable Nage)

I tasted some, and the ling code was cooked perfectly and nage was seasoned just right. Jerusalem artichoke was texture like potato and interestingly good.

My entree, Nova Scotia Lobster Tail
(Smoked Bacon, Chowder Sauce)

Here we go again! Thanks to the chef! He served two lobster tails on my plate. I let my friend taste one. 😀

Her dessert, Poached Pear
(Toasted Hazelnut, Vanilla Ice Cream)

My dessert, Chocolate Mousse
(with Fresh Raspberries)

I have heard they changed the recipe, so I got to order it. It was good and light, not too sweet, compared to the last year’s Dine out, so I finished to eat.

Oh, I’m glad I went there for Dine Out this year. I enjoyed much more than last year’s Dine Out.

Our friends got together for Collin’s birthday dinner, and they bought some cake for him. Before they went, they asked me where they should go or are in my list. So, I gave them three choices and had them choose at their convenience.

They picked Plaisir Sucre Bakery in Kitsilano, closed to Broadway and Arbutus street. I have never been there, so I don’t know what exactly their store looks like, but I believe there are some seats to eat in. They seem to have not only cake but also pastries. While I was researching, one site said there was another cafe across the street so not to be confused.

They picked five kinds of cake and tart.

All of them are delicious! I would like to have some sandwiches and have some cake for dessert. 🙂
