The event for Collin’s birthday still continued. 🙂 When a birthday for one of our close friends comes up, we plan to get together. This time was no exception. We gathered up for him and had dinner.

He chose the restaurant, Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. It is located in a couple of blocks away from Waterfront station. Our friends arrived there first and were guided to the party room, but they seemed to ask to seat at an open table instead. As far as I see, the room was cozy but you maybe feel suffocated.

We ordered dishes with meat or veggies, as one of us does not eat seafood.

Honey Beef

This tasted good! The sweetness was just right.

Steamed Pork Bun (6 pieces)

One of the friends said she preferred this to pan-fried one. I preferred pan-fried.

Moo Shu Pork
(Sauteed Sliced Pork, Eggs and Black Fungus)

I didn’t know what moo shu was. It is basically a stir-fry with wood ear mushroom (black fungus) and eggs. I never liked the mushroom, but I liked this dish. That’s good! Thin pancake came with this dish, and you eat, wrapping moo shu, like Fajita.

Fried Green Beans with Minced Pork in Spicy Sauce

As the name said, it was spicy! With all other dishes, it was a great kick.

Baked Scallion Pancake

This vegetarian dish was much tastier than I thought. I believe green onions were inside, and I don’t remember if there were the other veggies. 😛

Pan-fried Pork Bun (6 pieces)

This is always good! Hot juice comes out when you bite. Watch your mouth, don’t get burn!

Pan-fried Pork Dumplings (6 pieces)

All dishes were so good. I’m glad that I found more dishes that I like from this restaurant.

And, as usual, we got some birthday cake. From where? It will be revealed in the next post. 🙂

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.

Stuffed Eggplants with Dace Shrimp Puree

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.

Crystal Prawn Dumpling (Har Gow)

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!

After my friend and I went hiking near UBC, we took a public bus and decided to go for dinner somewhere. Each time we got an idea of where to go, the street nearby the restaurant that we were supposed to get off was passed by. 😦 So, we got off the bus at Cambie and took Canada Line, and we quickly talked about where to go.

As this place was in my list for a while, we decided to go there. Shaolin Noodle House is on Broadway in Vancouver, a couple blocks away from Broadway-City hall station. This place was introduced in Klip magazine that they serve dragging noodles (dragging by hand at the store).

We ordered from their regular menu.

Pan Fried Dumplings with Pork and Vegetables (12 pcs)

I had pictured somewhat the dragging noodles in soup as Ramen, so when I first tasted, it was strange. 😀 More I ate, I realized they were like Udon noodles. Still, I’m not sure if I order the same one next time. I may try fried one.

Dumplings were unexpected, too. Again, in my mind, this fried dumplings were like Gyoza. When this dish came, we both were surprised by the size. Each one was triple size of Gyoza that we know. And, when I ate, I learned the dumpling skin was not like Gyoza’s. It was like steamed bun’s. So, of course, we couldn’t eat even half pieces. Haha. I ended up taking the rest home.
