By the time I got donuts as wished, it was 6 o’clock. Since I was tired from hiking, I thought I might as well have small bite there, otherwise, my dinner would be 8 or 9pm at home. Wearing hiking outfits with some dirt, I didn’t want to go to any fancy or big places.

Tony’s Fish & Oyster Cafe was the best choice in that case. Their place is like a cozy cafe but serves proper meal and alcohol as well. Besides, the menu says best fish & chips. It is close to the entrance of Granville Island.

I ordered from their regular menu.

I was planning to have small bites, but I ended up ordering both, which totally filled up my stomach. Well, a good thing was that I didn’t need to make dinner at home. 🙂

Unfortunately, their best fish & chips wasn’t the best for me. I removed greasy and thick dough quite a bit and also the fish was pretty dry.

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

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

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.

So, as I expected, Symphony chair lift was open around noon, and I dashed via Whistler Peak. You know, it was the first day that the area was open, and you can imagine how much of fresh and soft-pack snow they had! Even while you traversed the bowl, you would be just stuck, and if you go out of run, snow comes up to your knees. Oh, sorry, too much information! ;p

Anyways, as much as I wanted to stay there, I just couldn’t continue and left for the groomed runs before 2:00 pm. After a couple groomed runs, I skied down to the village, as a staff member told me that now I can ski out.

Dragging my tiring body, I went to Gone Bakery & Soup, where it is close to a book store in Whistler Village.

I ordered from their soup menu.
