Posts Tagged ‘Dinner $11 – $15 per Person’

Just before the Christmas time last year, I got contacted by my friend whom I went to the same school with. I hadn’t seen her for a year, so yes, I was definitely looking forward seeing her. She also invited our common friend. I didn’t even remember when was the last time I saw the friend.

We got together at a cafe in downtown Vancouver first, because one other friend joined us. After he left, three of us decided to have dinner. As my friend needed to go to Metrotown for errands, we headed to Burnaby. The shopping at mall in the Christmas time was crazy, but finding a parking spot was crazier! Anyways, by the time when we finished the errands, it was getting late. We didn’t know where to go for dinner, so I took them to Pearl House, a Taiwanese restaurant.

We ordered from their menu to share. My friends didn’t know what to order except beef noodles, so I suggested the dishes from my previous visit. Unfortunately, beef sirloin was sold out…

Instead of beef sirloin, we took advice from the server and ordered beef tendon one. Well, none of us liked the tendon. Nothing wrong. We were just not familiar with the texture. It was probably my first try, and now I know I wouldn’t order the tendon next time anywhere. 😀

Shredded Chicken with Green Onion & Ginger Sauce

This was my other friends’ recommendation in my previous visit, Dong-an Ji (stir-fried chicken). It is spicy, but it tastes so good.

When I told my friends there was Mapo Tofu, they responded right away that they wanted to eat! 😀 And, I’m glad they liked it.

If I go to the restaurant again, I want to order something else. Any suggestions?

On weeknight in November, Collin was in charge of cooking, but he said he would bring some food home instead and asked me what I wanted to eat for dinner. I wasn’t feeling well for a while and was in the recovery mode, so I was thinking about something not oily.

I asked Sushi from Sushi Zero One. It is located on Pender Street downtown in Vancouver, walking distance from Waterfront station. As far as I look at their tweets, they always provide fresh fish, which is very important when it comes to Sushi or Sashimi. Since they no longer open on weekends, I have kept away myself.

He ordered from their regular menu.

Downtown Combination
(Tuna Roll, Tuna Nigiri, Salmon Nigiri, Ebi Nigiri, Tai Nigiri, Tamago, Saba Nigiri, Ika Nigiri)

It has been almost a year since the last visit? I hope they can open on weekends again.

It was nice that we still had time to spend together on that weekend, even after Collin and I enjoyed afternoon tea. Since it was his birthday weekend, I wanted to get something special for him, so we went shopping in Kitsilano area. Time went by, and we decided to have dinner around the area. I suggested eating Yakitori at a Japanese restaurant, but they’re gone! There was a new restaurant instead. We went back where we walked from and went in this restaurant.

The Noodle Box is on 4th Avenue, close to Burrard Street. They serve Southeast Asian cuisine. They are a casual restaurant that I could even say it’s a fast food restaurant. I have been to the restaurant in different locations, but I still don’t feel comfortable when I order. 😛

On some dishes, you can choose the spice level.

My choice, Malay Style Fried Rice

You can choose protein from chicken, beef, pork of Tofu. Prawns and free-run chicken are available with additional cost.

I ate chow mein before, so I chose this fried rice. There was some spice or ingredient that I didn’t like, but I couldn’t have figured out. I preferred chow mein.
