I cannot remember why, but I had something to do in downtown Vancouver on a weekday. By the time when I finished, it was almost 8pm. It was a really cold day in early January, so I decided to take something warm to home.

I went to Joyeaux Cafe & Restaurant. It is a Vietnamese restaurant on Howe street. I have been a few times, and I always chose noodles. I had read a blog, talking about this restaurant and suggesting a different dish.

I ordered the one to go, as followed the blog’s suggestion.

Umm, it was fine, but a bit greasy, and the skin wasn’t crispy enough for me. I would stick to noodles next time, although it might not be good for to-go. 🙂

The Fair at PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) is held from the end of August to Labour Day in Vancouver. It is a fun place for everyone to enjoy on exhibitions and food, in addition to rides or games.

After we got BBQ sandwiches, we got thirsty. We couldn’t see any bottle of water or tea, except lemonade. We kept walking and I saw some drinks at this food truck.

Roaming Dragon is a well-known street food truck since the launch. I have heard of this truck, but I just missed the chances all time. They serve Pan-Asian food, including drinks and dessert.

We ordered drinks.

Both drinks were so refreshing, especially in the hot day. There were lots of Lychee fruits in the juice, which I really liked.

In a couple of hours later, we came back to the truck to get some dinner to share.

Collin likes this. To me, it was just fine. Not so special to me. You can choose the filling from sweet chili calamari, lemongrass chicken, or Kaffir lime fried tofu.

If I have another chance, I would love to try different dishes.
