My friend asked me to go out for dinner, so I picked some places and had her decide one. The place she chose was Burgoo Bistro on Main Street. It is located at the corner of 15th Avenue. I have been to the one in North Vancouver for lunch a couple of times and thought their menu was interesting. They have a brunch menu, but they serve a same menu for lunch and dinner.

My friend wanted to eat fondue when she found it on the menu, but she also wanted to have soup, because it was cold night as October. When we couldn’t make our decisions, I found combos, soup & salad and soup & sandwiches, which solved our problems. 🙂

We shared fondue as an appetizer, we each ordered soup as part of combos, and chose salad and sandwiches to share even as part of combos.

On one weekend, I left for hiking later than I was planning to. When I was done hiking, it was too late for lunch and maybe early for dinner. I was hungry, because only what I had by that time was half of muffin. I was thinking where I can go on the way home or if I should go to downtown. And, an idea came up to me!

Yeah, one of my favorite places would be open by the time I arrived. That is 29th Ave Cafe on Boundary Road. They serves Japanese-style western food, called Yoshoku in Japanese. I always order croquette, so maybe first time, I ordered the other one.

There is a restaurant where serves Japanese-style western food, called Yoshoku in Japanese, on Boundary at 29th Ave.

The last time, I went there by myself. Collin said he wanted to go for his birthday dinner. I told him that why not we invited our friends, and I contacted one of our friends if she and the other common friends wanted to join us. (He didn’t know they actually came for his “birthday” dinner and they brought presents and cake. A little surprise! 🙂 )

Some ordered appetizer, and we all ordered each main dish.

After we ate dinner, the server brought some cakes, which one of friends bought for Collin. (Actually, my friend asked me if this restaurant allowed us to bring them in, but I didn’t have answers. But I asked her if she can get some from a place where I wanted to try, if they allow. :))
