So, Collin and I spent a whole day on BC Day, hiking, having brunch, and shopping. When we got home, he prepared for dinner right away! Wow, he must have been so excited for cooking with all ingredients we got that day.

I don’t know how he does, but everything happened at the same time, and a nice meal came out.

It looks good, doesn’t it? It tasted great, too!

I have never heard about fourchette, so I asked him. Fourchette is fork in French, and it is mashed with fork in the cooking term. This fourchette potatoes was mixed with Dungeness crab meat. So, delicious!

Collin and I went out for dinner in a rainy day. We headed to our favorite Japanese restaurant on Commercial Drive, but there was a line up. Although we wrote our name in a waiting list, it didn’t look like the line getting shorter nor food running to tables quickly enough. After a few minutes, Collin couldn’t wait any longer, and we were thinking about alternative.

Although we had to take Skytrain, we decided to go to Chinatown/Gastown area. There is a Japanese restaurant in my list where I found a few weeks ago, so we tried out.

Tsuki Sushi Bar is on Abbott street, close to Pender street. It is also in a walking distance from Skytrain Stadium station, so you could go before or after a game or concert. They serve mainly Sushi, and I don’t see any fried stuff.

We ordered from their regular and special menu as well as fresh sheet.

Miso Soup on Special
(Salmon Butter Miso)

I was suspicious with the taste when I ordered this. Surprisingly, it was tasty! It wasn’t oily from butter at all, instead, it helped the Miso taste milder.

Chawanmushi with Ebi on Special

Chawanmushi is often translated to steamed egg pudding, which I don’t think makes you help image the taste. It is savory and it is like a warm soften Tofu in Dashi broth. I love Chawanmushi, and it is rare to have at restaurant in Canada, so I was happy.

Sushi Rolls
(Torotaku Roll, Heatwave Roll, Rainbow Roll, Dynamite Roll)

All rolls were loose so that it was fallen a part when we grabbed a piece. Collin was kind of disappointed with Dynamite roll, which wasn’t good. I liked Torotaku roll, Torotaku is a combination of Toro and Takuwan (pickled Daikon radish).

Nigiri and Gunkan Sushi

All Nigiri Sushi were fine, but Collin loved Shima Aji one the most. I agreed.

We seem to have ordered too much Sushi and ended up taking home some. But I wanted to try their dessert, so we ordered this.

This was refreshing. I would like to try the other two dessert, too!

Beside the last two places, I had to check the menu of one of my favorite restaurants for Dine Out Vancouver. When I looked at their dine out menu, I really liked it and asked my friends, whom I went there with for Dine Out Vancouver last year, and one of them was excited to go there with me. 🙂

Fishworks serves seafood with reasonable price and decent amount, and moreover, it tastes good. It is located at Lower Lonsdale in North Vancouver and in a walking distance from Lonsdale Quay Seabus station. The dine out 3-course meal was provided by $28.

My friend liked this when we went there in their Halibut Festival, so she ordered again. 🙂

My appy, Dungeness Crab
(In Coconut Soup with Enoki Mushrooms)

As you might have noticed, the bowl was bigger! It seemed that the chef gave me extra, maybe because I come often and take my friends. 😉

My friend liked her appy, as she loved cilantro. (I have no comments, as I don’t like cilantro. :P) I was worried about my appy, because I don’t like coconut texture, but it was smooth soup with kick of spice and I really liked that.

Her entree, Ling Cod
(Jerusalem Artichoke and Winter Vegetable Nage)

I tasted some, and the ling code was cooked perfectly and nage was seasoned just right. Jerusalem artichoke was texture like potato and interestingly good.

My entree, Nova Scotia Lobster Tail
(Smoked Bacon, Chowder Sauce)

Here we go again! Thanks to the chef! He served two lobster tails on my plate. I let my friend taste one. 😀

Her dessert, Poached Pear
(Toasted Hazelnut, Vanilla Ice Cream)

My dessert, Chocolate Mousse
(with Fresh Raspberries)

I have heard they changed the recipe, so I got to order it. It was good and light, not too sweet, compared to the last year’s Dine out, so I finished to eat.

Oh, I’m glad I went there for Dine Out this year. I enjoyed much more than last year’s Dine Out.
