On the first weekend of June, I sent a text to my friend if she wanted to go for walk and see the baby swans in West Vancouver. I bought some food at Fujiya and we had a picnic lunch by the pond, watching them. They were too cute to ignore!

Anyways, we walked around quite a bit, and we realized it was getting dark. The day time is long at that time that made us forget what time it was. We were thinking of a seafood restaurant in North Vancouver for dinner, but when I called, they said they would be close in 15 min or so. It was Sunday, so we had to find somewhere open til late like lounge. Then, this restaurant came up, since we were heading that way anyways.

Ebo Restaurant in Burnaby. They have lounge that will serve some tapas size food til late. The restaurant is in The Delta Burnaby Hotel.

We ordered from their lounge menu.

The one we ate at Eat! Vancouver tasted better. Don’t know why, but maybe got soggy or oily by the time all of them were made? Well, still good, though.

Chicken Satays
(Grilled Chicken Satays, Grilled Pineapple, Pickled Cucumber, Spiced Peanut Sauce)

Satays were good. The pickled cucumber was really helpful for the refreshment.

Side Fries

Local Mussels
(Leeks, Tomato, Saffron, with or without gelderman Bacon, Grilled Bread)

Accidentally, my flash turned on! 😛 We liked this mussels. I would order it next time, too.

If you are looking for somewhere for late meal, this is a great place. Not many people, and food is good.

And, for the cuties, wanna see another pic? 😀

One weekday in April, my friend sent me a text, asking if we can go out for dinner. I was busy with work and had lunch around 3, but I replied I can. Well, she was also busy and would leave her work after 7, so it was perfect. When she was off the work, we searched for where we would go. As she said she wanted to eat good tasty food, I picked this interesting place, although it would cost a little more than casual dinner.

My choice was Kitsilano Daily Kitchen. They are just around the corner of Burrard Bridge and serve French west coast cuisine, changing the menu daily. I say it would be difficult to plan ahead if you are a picky eater. Well, that was the reason I hadn’t been there. :p

We ordered from the daily menu. We shared appy and each ordered an entree.

Complimentary Potato Bread, Saint Agur Blue Cheese, Olives

This potato bread was slightly sweet, but as blue cheese was salty, it was a great combination. And, I have to note that this blue cheese was amazingly tasty! We asked the name of cheese, because we wanted to get some from store.

Steamed Salt Spring Island Mussels & Clams
(Champagne Cream, Thyme, Desert Smoked Bacon)

Windset Farms Heirloom Gem Tomatoes
(Island Buffalo Mozzarella, Basil, Espelette Vinaigrette)

Both appy tasted good. For the juice in the mussels and clams, we wanted to have bread to soak. 🙂

Her choice, Rare-seared Breast of Mt. Lehman Duckling
(Northern White Bean Cassoulet, Grapefruit Gastrique)

My choice, Brown Butter Broiled Arctic Char
(Vanilla Scented Wild Rice, Serrano Aioli, Charred Corn Salsa)

Seared duckling breast was so tender and tasted great. My Arctic char was huge and was cooked perfectly. The salsa was a kick with some spiciness to eat with char.

After dinner, the server came to see if we wanted to have dessert. He explained verbally, so I don’t have any details, but they had chocolate ganache with goat cheese and lemon tart. We were full yet ordered one.

The lemon tart was quite sour to me, but I kept eating after a while. That’s a chef’s magic!

Although we can’t come back for the same dish, I would like to try another time again.

I got invited by the restaurant for the Customer Appreciation Day. This was probably an introduction that they would start their oyster bar. I talked to the chef at the end and he asked me what I thought about food, and I gave him some feedback, which was nice that he cares for customers.

All plates didn’t have names, so I just tried to describe as much as I can.
