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.

On the second day of Easter holiday, it looked windy when I woke up and looked outside. Well, at least, it was sunny, so I prepared for another hiking. On my way to catching a bus, I was thinking I should grab some lunch/snack before heading to the trail, and I stopped by at downtown Vancouver.

Finch’s Tea & Coffee House is in a walking distance from Waterfront Skytrain station. The cafe is small, so if you want to eat in, you should expect the waiting time. Also, it took 20 min for me to get the baguette, although there was no line (well, quite a few people waiting at tables), so if you’re hurry, this might not be a place for you.

I ordered from their baguette menu.

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

Pear was too young to eat. I prefer to ripen ones. Anyways, I had some bites while I was waiting for the bus, and the rest was taken with me for snack on hiking.

Most of you might already have known, but they open the second store in Strathcona. Have you been there yet?

When Collin asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I suggested if he can make me 10-course homemade dinner and he agreed to it. My birthday is December, but it was on weekend last year and he had to work. So, the dinner date was set on a weekday.

The course was planned as tapas style, so no main dish, and included some that I liked in the past when he made.

1st course: Quinoa chickpea pave with Coleslaw

He made this one in the previous month. As a part of 10-course meal, each one was too big! 🙂

2nd course: Smoked salmon wonton

3rd course: Marinated eggplant

I basically like eggplant, and after I ate marinated eggplant at Fishworks and Bao Bei, I told him I liked them and I can eat them every day. So, he sometimes makes some for me, and this time wasn’t exception. 🙂

4th course: Prosciutto wrapped chicken with Parsnip purée

5th course: Wonton soup

He made won ton soup in the past and I liked them, too. But this time, he put some unique spice, and I didn’t like so much. 😦

6th course: Scallop with butternut squash and bacon

7th course: Prawn cream cheese cannelloni with Rose sauce

8th course: Spicy green beans and cashew pork

As I liked the green beans dish that he made before, I requested the one. This was so spicy and I ended up having him eat some.

9th course: Apricot rum poached pear marshmallow soup (It was supposed to be two desserts, but we were full so he changed the menu at last minute.)

So, this is a hot soup. Because of that, marshmallows were melting in the soup. Mm, so good!

The dishes were served a bit too fast (because I’m slow eater!). I kept eating, sometimes having two or three plates in front of me, for 2 hours or so. I thought my stomach was going to explode! 😀
