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!

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 the Vancouver’s food blog, I found out the Food Cart Fest was held on every Sundays, starting in June. Although it was a bit cloudy day in June, I convinced Collin to take a walk around the Olympic Village and go to this festival before his work. I thought it was close to the Olympic station on Canada Line, but we had to walk for quite a long time before we reached there.

At the gate, we paid $2 each for the admission. Once you entered the area, there were lots of food trucks waiting for you to come. There were no chairs or bench (as far as I remembered), so people were sitting on the edge of the street in the area to eat.

We went there earlier, so there was no line up at the gate. By the time we left, there was a long line up. If you go next year (if they do this), you’d better manage your time.

We walked around first and went to Mogu Japanese Street Eats, because Collin had never tried before. Mogu serves sandwiches, Japanese influenced burger, and Karaage. They are open only weekdays in downtown Vancouver and weekends in Richmond Night Market.

I chose a combo for Collin, because I wanted him to try their Karaage, too. For me, I ordered my favorite.

Karaage Combo, Chicken Teriyaki Sandwich + Two Sweet & Spicy Chicken Karaage
(Roasted Chicken, House made Teriyaki and Japanese Tartar Sauce, Red Onions, and Lettuce, plus, Marinated deep fried Chicken with House made sweet chili sauce)

Kabocha Croquette
(Sweet Japanese squash croquette, Katsu sauce, Avocado, Lettuce)

He enjoyed his food, although he didn’t think Karaage was the best in Vancouver. Well, I think it is! I enjoyed my croquette burger.

You can check where they are or when they open for special events on the app or Twitter.

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.
