We had a birthday dinner party at our friend’s house. As I wrote yesterday, there were a lot of food for dinner. But, something is missing, right? Yeah, birthday cake!

As her place was in Burnaby, I asked the other friend to pick up some cake from the store in Burnaby. It is Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie. I have never been there, but my friend confirmed if they have individual cake, before heading there, and yes, they have. For whole cake, you need to order in advance, according to her.

Right after all menus for Dine Out Vancouver was revealed on the site, I told my friends to take a look at it. I picked a few where I wanted to go and discussed with them where to go. The conversation went on and on, because the site was not easy to narrow your search, unless you know where you want to go and see the menu. This restaurant wasn’t originally picked, but because one of my friends said she really liked it when she went twice in the past and also they offered the same Dine Out menu for lunch with $18, we decided to go.

Seasons in the Park is located in Queen Elizabeth Park, which is in the centre of Vancouver resident area. Although Vancouver has a lot of raining in winter, it was clear a bit on that day so that we were able to see some view of Vancouver downtown and North Shore mountains from the restaurant.

We all ordered from their Dine Out menu.

Beef Carpaccio
(Micro Basil, Pickled Beets, Truffle Aioli, Ricotta Cheese)

We all ordered the same appy. I took time to choose though, as the entree was also beef. Unfortunately, this carpaccio was a bit bland to us. I probably would have appreciated if there was more dressing or salt and pepper.

Grilled Steelhead Salmon
(Herb Salad, Braised Lentils, Double Smoked Bacon, Truffle Oil)

Braised Beef Short Ribs
(Gremolata, Roasted Onions, Potato Puree)

Vanilla Gelato
(Amaretto Anglaise, Chilled Espresso, Biscotti)

Hazelnut Chocolate Torte
(Banana Puree, Whipped Sour Cream)

Both desserts were quite sweet. I asked the server to pack half of them.

And, extra picture of view from the restaurant.

Overall, it was good food with $18. Even my friend, who liked this restaurant, wasn’t so satisfied this time. Within the same group of the company, I liked Dine Out food at The Sandbar last year more than this.

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. 🙂
