Posts Tagged ‘Fried rice’

It was a weekday that Collin had to work in the morning and afternoon, and I had to go to hospital for some medical test in the evening, so I met up with him before the test. After the test, he couldn’t wait any longer for dinner, so he had some snack. Yet, he said he was still hungry. When we crossed by Seabus, we were looking for a place around Waterfront station. As he wanted to eat Chinese food to go, we went to this place.

Shanghai Xiao Long Bao Restaurant is a couple of blocks away from Waterfront station. It is on Richards street. They have huge menu, but the server was really kind to us to show what their recommendations were. He mentioned the restaurant name, Xiao Long Bao, coming from their signature pork bun.

We ordered from their regular menu to go.

You can’t see the juice in the pictures, but when you bite, all juice comes from. So good!

This was spicy (to me). At the same time, so good, too! As long as I have fried rice, I can eat this.

I ordered this, because I thought I read some blogs saying this tasted good. Yes, it was good to me, but it was too fishy to Collin. I guess, dried scallop smells a lot, although I didn’t smell so much?

These were lots of food for two! Well, we ordered what we wanted to eat. Besides, we were so hungry. 🙂 We ate leftover for lunch on the next day. They recommended a lot of different things, so we definitely try again.

While I was relaxed after I came back from hiking, Collin called me that his shift finished earlier and he was gonna get something to eat. I told him I hadn’t had dinner yet, although it was around 9pm, and I said fried rice would be good, whichever Chinese or Thai. There was a Thai place in his mind, close to Georgia and Burrard street, but he said it was closed. So, I suggested to walk on Alberni street.

He went in Pink Elephant Thai. It is on Alberni street, across from Urban Fare market. He said the inside the restaurant was loud by music.

He ordered from their dinner menu.

The fried rice was enough for two of us to share. It needed seasoning little more, and veggies needed to cook more (to me). It might be just my imagination, but veggies in Thai fried rice tends to be raw, doesn’t it? I noticed maybe because I don’t like raw onions!

One of my friends sent me a message, saying that she went to a Malaysian restaurant where I showed its location before and that the food was good. I replied, let me know when you go next time. In the following couple days, she contacted the other friend and the date was set. 😀 Within a week, we got together to go to Penang Delight Cafe. That was a quick move!

They serve Malaysian cuisine and are located in East Vancouver, on Rupert street. As like Indian food, I’m not familiar with some of the term on their menu, so it took a while to decide what we ordered.

We ordered from their dinner menu.

Sambal Green Bean Prawns

And an extra picture of the restaurant. The restaurant was really small, and the hallway between our table and the wall was one person away.

What we ate wasn’t spicy too much. So, I would like to go again and try some more dishes. (I’m not good at taking spice.)
