Collin and I went walking in West Vancouver on a weekend in January, as it was supposed to be a sunny day. We planned to have brunch after walking, before he left for work. It was Sunday, so I researched where to go in advance, not letting him be late for work.

I chose The District in North Vancouver. They are in a walking distance from Seabus Lonsdale Quay station. They’re not open for lunch on weekdays, but open for brunch on weekends.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

When Collin started eating, he realized most of the waffles were hard by being overcooked. He nicely asked if it was supposed to be like that, and they apologized and took off it from our bill. He liked the side coulis, so it would have been perfect if the waffles were cooked properly.

On my Benny, there was interesting sauce on the hash. It was like spicy Mexican salsa? Haha, I wish I can describe it better. 😛

And an extra picture. They have a lot of interesting beer!

At the beginning of this month, I happened to look at their site and found that there was a spacial dinner for 3rd Annual Oceanwise Celebration at Trafalgars Bistro in Kitsilano. I like seafood and thought 7-course dinner for $65 was good deal, so I emailed to one of my friends if she was interested.

I called them next day for a reservation, and I felt comfortable by talking with them, as I was on guard because I thought the restaurant was not casual. When I asked their dress code and if jeans were OK, she said, make sure the jeans were able to be stretched due to 7-course. 🙂

My friend ordered taster size (2 oz) of wine, and I ordered a glass of wine.

I enjoyed most of them.

Sockeye salmon was little sweet for me. Paella was like soup, which I’m not sure if it was supposed to be. Lobster in the pound cake was big pieces and it was interesting-weird taste. :O

I liked Uni form, though I’m not really a fan of Urchin. I don’t think I ever eat sturgeon before, but it tasted like between sable fish and cod. I just looked up what kind of fish it was, and it was surprising to me!

An extra picture of the restaurant.
