Posts Tagged ‘Cream puff’

When I went to downtown Vancouver to get some dinner home, I also went to this place. Ow, their custard cream is a treat for me! 🙂

Beard Papa’s is located on Robson street. The store is tiny and there is no space to seat. They sell mainly cream puff including eclair, but also cheesecake stick and chocolate lava cake. Their cream puff is filled with custard cream made in Japanese way. The custard is not buttery but creamy and sweet.

I wanted to buy Paris Brest, which custard cream is in donuts, but it was sold out. So, I bought regular cream puff and eclair.

On one Friday night, I sent a text message to my friend if she wanted to go for walk next day. She responded yes! So, I also asked if there was any place she wanted to go for brunch. You know, it happens when you think about something, the thing won’t come up to your mind, which if you don’t think, it will be in your mind. Our wish-listed places it is! Anyways, I gave her three ideas, combination of hiking places and restaurants. She picked Kits one.

We had brunch at Cafe Regalade, before hiking. It is located in Kitsilano, close to Macdonald and 4th Avenue. They serve casual French cuisine for breakfast, brunch, and dinner. The place is like a small bistro cafe. When we arrived, there was a line up. We probably waited for at least 30 min.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

My friend’s choice, Soup of the Day, French Onion

I tasted some, and it was good. She said it tasted sour a bit. Maybe the flavour came from cheese?

My friend’s choice, Fresh Pancake with Blueberries and Maple Syrup

I also had some bites. It was fluffy inside. She said it was probably made in oven, rather in frying pan. The interesting thing was when it got cold, the texture was more like pound cake.

My choice, Lyon Breakfast
(2 Poached Eggs, Mushrooms, Bacon, Pearl Onions, Spinach, Potatoes, and Red Wine Sauce, Salad)

When I started eating, I realized that this was a quite huge meal as brunch. I left some potatoes in the plate at the end. The sauce was a little bit salty, but with egg and spinach, as well as bread, it was fine.

I had heard about one of their dessert from my other friend that is an interesting shape, which is called Floating Island. However, our server said they didn’t have sauce for it, although the dessert was in the showcase. 😦 He showed us other dessert and convinced me to order the other one.

I didn’t expect two coming! I asked the server why, and he said the dish comes with two. Wow! So, you had better come with your friend. My friend said she was full, so I ended up taking some home with me. Well, next time, Floating Island, for sure! 🙂

For Collin’s birthday, his family invited us for a restaurant, Le Crocodile. It is a French restaurant, located in the center of downtown Vancouver.

We were six of us, so I will write in three separate posts, appetizer, main, and dessert. This is about dessert.

Before desserts were served, they served palate cleanser, peach sorbet with port wine, to all of us.

Classic Creme Caramel, which I wanted to eat, but I didn’t know there was. (Because Japanese call this as custard pudding, I didn’t think this is that.)
