My friend sent me a text around 7:30 pm and asked if I had dinner. I said not yet, and we decided to go out for dinner. She was still at work and said that she was hungry and tired, so we were looking at some place close to where both of us were.

We found a place on Kingsway, between Joyce street and Boundary, Cattle Cafe. They serve Chinese food, maybe more likely Hong Kong style food. I wasn’t familiar with those food and their order system, and when we were seated, I was just looking around for a while, to see the others’ order and to catch our server.

Anyways, after a while, we finally placed order.

Her choice, Tomato Sauce with Pasta

I can’t remember what exactly she ordered. She said she would like to eat pasta, so this must have spaghetti or penne underneath.

My choice, Baked Seafood & European Wieners in Cream Sauce with fried Rice

This dish description was similar to Japanese Yoshoku food, Doria, which is my favorite, so I ordered. But it tasted differently. The dish may not look like huge, but there were quite a lot of food. We both took some home.

We talked a lot, and when we checked the time, it was past 11 o’clock! Yet, surprisingly, people kept coming in at this late time.

It was after 2:30pm, and I needed to grab some lunch in short time. The restaurant caught me on the other day, so I just walked in for the first time. Cafe Evergreen Sayaka is a Japanese style European fusion cuisine on Kingsway.

I ordered food from their regular menu. I asked if they have coffee because there wasn’t in the menu, and the server said there were only special ones, such as cappuccino, but no regular coffee.

Americano

When the drink came, I asked for milk and he put a bottle saying they had no milk but sugar. :O
I said that I didn’t need sugar but wanted milk, and he responded that he thought they might have 2% milk, so I nodded and said that’s good!

However, when a milk bottle came and I was trying to pour some, the bottle mouth was covered with green mold. Ew… (The bottle was so the lid cannot be widely opened and you can open as if it’s a bird’s beak. So, if I wasn’t careful to look, I couldn’t see the mold.)
I was going to say something, but he was back in the kitchen and didn’t show up in front for next 10 min or so, and I felt disgusted to eat food. Well, I stayed, as I had already ordered…
Of course, I told him when he showed up that I couldn’t drink my Americano for the reason.

This was unexpected one. I didn’t imagine that actual omlet rice was inside Doria. 😀

I was looking at a coupon magazine, KLIP, last month, and I knew that the cafe offered Doria, Japanese rice gratin, by the end of the month, so I had to go! 🙂 It is rare to have Doria here in Canada, and it needs time and a lot of steps to cook so that I don’t make at home. Cafe de l’Orangerie serves Japanese style of Italian or French food. They are located on Granville street close to Richmond.

We ordered from the month’s special and dinner menu.

My choice, Doria (Japanese rice gratin) from the month’s special.

Dessert, Chocolate Banana Parfait

Collin said that he was full to eat dessert and would order some cake to go. Guess what? When this parfait came, he was the one who grabbed the cup and was eating. :O Yes, of course, I was trying eating half! 😀

And, when we had strawberry short cake next day, I forgot to take a picture.
