After visiting Farmer’s Market, I walked around downtown Vancouver as well as Granville Island to look for some birthday gifts for my friend. When I checked the time, it was dinner time! Yeah, summer time always makes me lose track of the time.

I have kept BaoQi Eateri in my mind for quite a while since I read a blog post. Also, my boss recently talked about this place that she really liked their Pho. Anyways, it made me go there. They are a small Vietnamese restaurant on Davie, close to Yaletown. There is a long table that people share to seat, and also a few small tables.

I ordered from their regular menu.

I think the soup was a bit salty to me, but maybe because I went there after 6-hour of walking. If I went with friends, I could have ordered side dishes, which I would love to.

A few days after having afternoon tea at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, my friends and I talked about the next food adventure. The conversation started from there were more places for afternoon tea, and it was extended to where your top 5 places would be that you like to eat before leaving the town. 🙂 One of the friends said that she didn’t know any places where she wanted to go particularly, but she had been craving for Pho and told us the place.

So we went. Au Petit Cafe is located on Main street, a few blocks away from Queen Elizabeth Park. They seem really popular in Vancouver, as I can find many blogs talking about this place. They serve authentic Vietnamese food, according to their website.

We planned to meet up there at 7 pm. One of friend and I arrived 15 min earlier, and when we looked at inside if the other friend already arrived, a staff inside was beckoning to us, so we went in. Right after we were seated, our server came, saying this was the last order! What? We looked at the door and realized that they close 7 pm! We called our friend what she wanted to order, but as she didn’t answer, we ordered Pho per person and one spring rolls to share.

I don’t know which part is authentic, but the rare sliced beef and soup was good and I liked their spring rolls. I can’t say that their Pho and spring rolls are the best in town to me yet.

On the second day of our vacation in Whistler, we went riding after we checked-out the hotel. It was cloudy day and a bit cold. Snow on the mountain was still good but harder and heavier. We decided to have lunch around 12:30 at Roundhouse on Whistler mountain.

If you go upstairs at Roundhouse, you will find two food sections, one restaurant, and two bars. Where we went was one of two food sections, called Mountain Market.

We ordered from the noodle bowl menu to share.
