On the second day of the Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend, my new friends whom I met at the baby shower, and I planned to go to the Grouse Grind. It was the first time for them to try. 🙂 After we got over it, we headed to Burnaby, where one of the friends live, for having late lunch.

Luckily, as the middle of long weekend, this restaurant was open, Wah Lun Chinese Restaurant. It is on Hastings Street, close to Willingdon Avenue. They have dim sum menu, too. I think you can order them until 3pm.

A husband of my friend ordered for us, for four.

Seafood Chow Mein

This wasn’t in the list that we ticked with a pen, but he ordered it outside the paper. He asked the noodles as hard (fried) one. This reminds me of Kata Yakisoba that I eat in Japan. It tasted good.

This was new to me, and I liked it. I could eat more!

Deep Fried Chicken Joint with Peppery Salt

This is chicken cartilage. Yup, I liked them, too. There were a lot to finish. 🙂

Cod Jaw with Ginger & Green Onions

This was also new to me. Basically, you just suck the piece and take fish meat out of the jaw bone. It was marinated with sweet sauce.

Dumpling is always good, right?

I liked all of his choices. We couldn’t finish them all, so we took the leftover home. And, for these volume, look at the total price, so cheap! I’m looking forward another opportunity!

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.

They never betray my expectation, always serve consistent taste! 🙂

One of my friends contacted me that we should get together. As we usually meet up with our common friends when we do so, I suggested him contact the others. Only one friend was available for that day. Well, three of us plus my friend’s baby (almost 3-yrs-old) got together. I invited Collin, too, since we all went to the same school, although he’d never met my friends.

As I thought a mom has to do a lot before going out, I suggested to go to this restaurant where she sometimes goes there because it is close to her house. Cafe de l’Orangerie serves Japanese style of Italian or French food. They are located on Granville street close to Richmond.

We ordered from their weekly specials and regular menu.

My hashed beef stew was quite huge! I was so full even after 5 hours. My friend said Chicken Nanban was the one that she always ordered. 🙂 I didn’t taste it, so I don’t know if it’s good or not. Collin ordered the exact same one as last time, even though I recommended a few different dishes.
