When we went to Nook the other day, Collin told me that he could prepare for those antipasto at home, as long as stores sell ingredients. So, once he thought about that, he already went shopping on his next day off. 🙂

He said it was difficult to get Burrata cheese, so instead, he got buffalo mozzarella. Well, it still tasted good! All ingredients here are available at Granville Island.

Oh, this much antipasto can make you full as dinner. We enjoyed each different combination of meat and cheese with refreshment of salads.

After Collin and I went to Vancouver Aquarium, we walked on the trail along Lost Lagoon towards Second Beach near Stanley Park Pool. By the time when we got back to Denman Street, it was dinner time and he wanted to eat out.

We kept walking on Denman Street to find some place, as it was a holiday. We ended up going to Nook where I went with my friend about a week before. Oh, well, it was fine, as this was first time for him to go there.

We ordered from both their regular and special menu.

The quantity of prosciutto looked way less than the last time. Well, sorry, Collin.

The restaurant is dark, so all pasta looked same, although what I ordered this time was not same as the last time. I don’t remember this Bolognese taste. I don’t know why. Drunk? 😛

As I mentioned in the previous post, my friend and I went to a cafe after hiking. We stayed there until the cafe was closed! (I mean, we didn’t notice there were nobody else until we asked what time their closing time was. ;p) Anyways, it was almost dinner time when we left West Vancouver, so we decided to have dinner.

She told me about this restaurant, Nook, before, but I didn’t have a chance to go there, as it is a bit far to go to Denman street for dinner. So, I asked if she wanted to go there with this opportunity. Nook is an Italian restaurant, and they have counter tables and a few individual tables. When you go in and tables are full, you just write your name on the chalkboard beside the entrance.

We ordered from both their regular and special menu.
