For my birthday weekend in December, I asked Collin to go for brunch. As usual, we left home later than we thought, we looked for a restaurant somewhere close to Waterfront station, as he had to go to work after. I suggested a couple of places, and he agreed to one of them.

It was Tuc Craft Kitchen in Gastown, close to Woodward’s. I have been there with one of my friends for dinner, but for him, it was the first time.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

My choice, Berries & Gaufres
(Fresh Waffles, Blueberry Compote, Cream Cheese)

Gaufres are waffles in French. They were thin crispy waffles. If I liked it? Not so much, I mean, it was different. I prefer waffles like crispy outside and fluffy inside.

His choice, Crispy Chicken & Waffles
(Free run Chicken Breast, Savory Waffles, Dijon Mournaise)

Unlike me, he liked his dish. He seemed to like the combination of savory chicken and waffles. According to him, the chicken was crispy outside and moist inside. Plus, he liked the sauce, too. I couldn’t find what the Mournaise is.

Collin had been asking to go to this place, but it always happened to be Sunday. They don’t open on Sundays. On the last weekend in November, we were finally able his wish to come true.

His wish was to get a baguette from Finch’s Tea & Coffee House. This cozy cafe is on Pender Street and often occupied by many people.

We ordered from their baguette menu.

His choice, Prosciutto
(Prosciutto, Edam, tomato, red leaf lettuce, oil & vinegar)

He asked Cheddar instead of Edam. This is favorite. It had been long time since his last visit, so he enjoyed it a lot and asked me if he should get another one! :O

My choice, Pear
(Pear, blue brie, prosciutto, roasted walnuts)

This is my favorite, and I just can’t choose something new! 😀 The last time when it was a spring time, pear wasn’t ripen yet. This time, it was juicy.

I wasn’t feeling well on and off for quite a while in November, and I was tired of eating light meal. Suddenly, I had a craving for curry, so I decided to get some. Well, I could have made at home, but I was just being lazy. 🙂

I went to ZAC-ZAC Japanese Curry House. They are located in the food court at H-Mart in downtown Vancouver. They are specializing in Japanese curry, but they also have Donburi and Bento box menu.

I ordered from their curry menu to go for me and Collin.

Haha, both looked same! Compared to last time, their to-go container has been changed. For the taste? No change, that’s good. The cutlet was crispy even after I took home.

Like last time when I ordered, they asked the spiciness level, mild or regular, and I didn’t remember which level I had chosen before. Mild seems like little sweeter.

It was a weekday evening, and I had a Vancoupon booklet, so I got 5% off. You can get it at locations in the list here.
