In early December, my company had a Christmas party at the restaurant. My boss went for brunch to this restaurant and apparently she really liked their food. All staff and their spouses were picked up by a limo and taken to the restaurant.

La Regalade is a French bistro in West Vancouver. It is further than Ambleside along Marine Drive. They have a sister restaurant in Kitsilano as a cafe, where I have been.

Maybe because of the special occasion, we were presented the menu in a big blackboard, appetizer and entrees, and dessert, separately. For the appy, bosses chose probably 5 different dishes, and all each chose an entree and a dessert.

Amuse Bouche

This was sooooo good! It was creamy croquet, hot and tasty. I wanted to eat more than one! 🙂

There were more appy, such as Foie Gras or terrine, but by the time the plate came to my side, it didn’t look good to take pictures, although all tasted great.

Grilled Prime Rib, Shallots, Garlic, Wedge Potato

I chose this one, and so did most of the others. The prime rib was huge! You might not see it, but it was served in a frying pan, which was like 25cm wide. The meat was tender, grilled shallots and garlic was great.

On the further table, the others ordered beef bourguignon and trout filet. Bourguignon was ordered by multiple people so that it was served in the family style, in a big pot for them. I didn’t know until then that French serves in a big plate.

Now, here are desserts.

Floating Island

I ordered this. When I went to the cafe in Kitsilano, I couldn’t eat because they ran out the sauce. So, I had to order! It is meringue shared as hemisphere, with caramel sauce. It was quite sweet. I better shared with someone.

Collin ordered this. From the menu, it sounded so sweet. Well, he is a sweet tooth.

Ah, I was so full. I’m glad there was a driver to take us home that we can just sit in a car. I felt that they serve quality food and the restaurant gives comfy atmosphere, so I would love to go back for brunch next time.

One night in September, Collin and I decided to go out for dinner, as he worked hard in the morning and was too tired to cook. It was still nice day continuing, and walking was great to do, heading to the restaurant.

We went to 29th Ave Cafe. They serve Japanese Yoshoku (Japanese-style western food) and are located on Boundary Road. Yoshoku includes cutlet, deep-fries, curry, etc.

We ordered from their menu. I don’t think they ever changed the menu. 🙂

Pork Cutlet (Tonkatsu)

He already started pouring Bulldog sauce. 😀 He ate chicken cutlet on the previous day, and he still ordered cutlet! :O It shows how much he likes it!

Chicken Cream Korokke (croquette)

Well, I can’t blame him, either. I ordered deep-fried as well. I always wanted to try something else but ended up ordering this. It’s that good for me! My mom used to say creamy croquette is difficult to make because the stuff inside would always be popped out.

I like the half size of lettuce head, coming with the fried. We should eat food in a balance, and their entrees consist a great balance of nutrition, in my opinion.

Custard Pudding

We both ordered this. I didn’t think he would order, as he actually ate deep-fried prawns as an appetizer before the entree, but he did! (He dug in the fries right away, and I didn’t even have time to take a pic!)

As I always say, this restaurant serves consistent taste every time.

On a weekday, a project I was doing at work was finally done, and suddenly fatigue set in. It had been long day every day, working till night, so I didn’t have energy to cook. (A good thing on WordPress is that I can schedule blog posts, and I had prepared for almost 2-week worth of posts in advance.)

Well, I went to 29th Ave Cafe. They serve Japanese Yoshoku (Japanese-style western food), and are located on Boundary Road.

I ordered my favorites from their menu.
