Posts Tagged ‘Fish & Chips’

My friend was moving out her place by the end of April, so our other friends and I helped her move her stuff from the old place to the new place. After everything was done, we were planing to have dinner together. As her new place is in Burnaby, we all were not sure where to go. One of us had an idea, and he called them to make sure the direction.

We went to Red Robin. It is located in Burnaby, but it is close to Coquitlam. I have been to the one in Vancouver downtown, which is sadly gone. They serve American/Canadian food. Are burgers main? Maybe. There were lots of family and birthday group.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Bottomless Beverage Lemonade

I asked the server before order if the lemonade is too sweet, and she said not too sweet. She was right. I enjoyed the sourness.

French Onion Soup (bowl)
(A freshly prepared favorite made from rich beef stock with caramelized sweet onions, topped with melted Provolone & Parmesan cheeses, served with garlic cheese bread)

My friends seem to love their French onion soup. In fact, I tasted and I liked, too.

Towering Onion Rings
(13 rings tall, sweet Spanish yellows seasoned, breaded & fresh fried, served with campfire mayo and ranch dressing for dipping)

Tower is a fun thing! I love onion rings, so I enjoyed some bite.

Bottomless Steak Fries

Red Robin Gourmet Cheeseburger
(Garnished with crisp lettuce, fresh tomatoes, pickles, red onions, mayo & Red’s pickle relish. You choose your favorite cheese:  Cheddar, Canadian Processed, Swiss, Bleu, Provolone or Pepper-Jack.)

Arctic Cod Fish & Chips (Yams instead)
(Premium, icy cold water Cod filets, hand-battered in a light tempura batter and crisply-fried, served with our Bottomless Steak Fries and our original dill & pickle tartar sauce)

I love yam fries, too. My friend switched to yam fries at last minute! 🙂 So I was able to taste some. So good! And, bottomless? Dangerous!

Chinese Dry Ribs
(1 lb of ribs tossed in coarse salt, pepper & toasted sesame seeds, served with garlic chili sauce for dipping)

The ribs were good, too. Maybe, a bit salty? It was fine with me, as I just had some bite.

My choice, Avo-Cobb-O Salad
(Crisp mixed greens with tender grilled chicken breast, black forest ham, hard-boiled egg, avocado, black olives, ripe tomatoes and crumbled Bleu cheese, served with warm garlic cheese bread & your choice of dressing)

Avo-Cobb-O Salad at Red Robin in Burnaby

It is rare to find Cobb salad with blue cheese, so I was happy to have it. The salad was huge, and I couldn’t even finish after sharing with my friends.

I was so surprised some of their food was bottomless! Good for wallet, but bad for body?! 😀

By the time I got donuts as wished, it was 6 o’clock. Since I was tired from hiking, I thought I might as well have small bite there, otherwise, my dinner would be 8 or 9pm at home. Wearing hiking outfits with some dirt, I didn’t want to go to any fancy or big places.

Tony’s Fish & Oyster Cafe was the best choice in that case. Their place is like a cozy cafe but serves proper meal and alcohol as well. Besides, the menu says best fish & chips. It is close to the entrance of Granville Island.

I ordered from their regular menu.

I was planning to have small bites, but I ended up ordering both, which totally filled up my stomach. Well, a good thing was that I didn’t need to make dinner at home. 🙂

Unfortunately, their best fish & chips wasn’t the best for me. I removed greasy and thick dough quite a bit and also the fish was pretty dry.

On the same day as in the previous post, I decided to have early (to me) lunch on the mountain. I usually avoid “lunch” time, as it will be so crowded with people, but I manged to find a seat around 1 o’clock that day.

I grabbed some food from Mountain Market on the second floor at Roundhouse in Whistler mountain. This time, I chose fish station.

I ordered from the fish & frites menu.

I really love this Kids Size! 🙂 This fish & chips is bigger than others, as a kids size. I couldn’t eat them all, so I kept apple and juice in my bag for later snack.
