As I mentioned before, I made some new friends at my friend’s baby shower. The birthday of one of them was coming up, and we organized a birthday dinner for her.

As she wished to eat paella, the organizer chose this restaurant, La Bodega. It is located in downtown Vancouver, close to Drake Street. They serve Spanish tapas food. What did we order? I’m not sure… Because when I got to my nearest Skytrain station, the shutter was down, and nobody could get in. I ended up taking two buses to get to downtown, and it took more than an hour and half. So, by the time when I arrived at the restaurant, most of food was shared and served. Oh, my kind friends kept my share in the plates. 🙂 Anyways, I took only one picture.

For the taste, I think it was much better than my last visit in 2011. The atmosphere was more lively than before.

I had another craving for grilled fish. 🙂 Grilling fish at home is doable, but it causes smell, which neighbour wouldn’t like, and heat-oven may not work well sometime. Well, I have tried a few times and wished I had a gas-oven.

As usual, I went to Hachibei, an authentic Japanese restaurant, in a South Cambie residence area. The restaurant is really a cozy place.

After I looked at the menu, I asked the server what the today’s fish was. The choices were same as the last time. I told her that I wanted to eat grilled fish, but I ordered the exact same ones at last two visits. She was thinking a bit and suggested black cod.

Black cod is known as sable fish. The fish was marinated with Saikyo Miso and grilled. As you might have noticed, the small plates come with the Teishoku were exactly same as Today’s BBQ fish Teishoku last time.

On the first weekend of June, I sent a text to my friend if she wanted to go for walk and see the baby swans in West Vancouver. I bought some food at Fujiya and we had a picnic lunch by the pond, watching them. They were too cute to ignore!

Anyways, we walked around quite a bit, and we realized it was getting dark. The day time is long at that time that made us forget what time it was. We were thinking of a seafood restaurant in North Vancouver for dinner, but when I called, they said they would be close in 15 min or so. It was Sunday, so we had to find somewhere open til late like lounge. Then, this restaurant came up, since we were heading that way anyways.

Ebo Restaurant in Burnaby. They have lounge that will serve some tapas size food til late. The restaurant is in The Delta Burnaby Hotel.

We ordered from their lounge menu.

The one we ate at Eat! Vancouver tasted better. Don’t know why, but maybe got soggy or oily by the time all of them were made? Well, still good, though.

Chicken Satays

Satays were good. The pickled cucumber was really helpful for the refreshment.

Accidentally, my flash turned on! 😛 We liked this mussels. I would order it next time, too.

If you are looking for somewhere for late meal, this is a great place. Not many people, and food is good.

And, for the cuties, wanna see another pic? 😀
