In the last September, although it was raining a bit, I decided to go to Friday Night Market in North Vancouver. It was held at Lonsdale Quay Pier on Fridays between May to October. When I headed, I told Collin I would be there and meet me after work.

First, I looked around which food trucks were there, when I got there. There were a few new trucks, but I didn’t feel like eating their foods and went for one of the famous food trucks, which was Feastro. They primarily serve tacos. I watched their food on TV, and since then, it was on my wish list.

I ordered their primary dish, four tacos, two for me and two for him.

Two Jerk Chicken Tacos
(Jerk Chicken, Tomato & Star Anise Chutney, Shaved Cabbage, Chipotle Aioli, Sour Cream, Corn Salsa, Pickled Jalapenos)

We took those two tacos home, so they looked awful, but it was our fault. We should have eaten at the market. It was raining, and we didn’t want to stay there. Anyways, he ate the pulled pork tacos and liked it, but he preferred jerk chicken. I ate the tuna tacos and really liked it.

Every year, the Fair at PNE (Pacific National Exhibition) is held from the end of August to Labour Day in Vancouver. I’m not interested in riding on a coaster or playing games, but I like watching some of the exhibitions and eating food there.

This is another year that Collin and I found time to go there and we had BBQ. Last two times, we had BBQ from Saskatchewan. This time, we decided to try something else, which was Gator BB from Ontario.

This sandwiches were huge! I mean, so much meat! We couldn’t finish them at once, and we did need some refreshment even while we were eating, such as pickles. As they said they didn’t have them, we walked around if any stores carry. Luckily, we found them in either burger or hotdog store, and they agreed to sell some on its own. We really appreciated.

Their meat tasted good. I would order it again, but maybe I want to try rib next time.

As the weather forecast in Whistler alpine was gusty 60km/h on one Saturday in March, I skipped to go skiing. Instead, I decided to go to Gastown to have brunch. I had some places in my list, and I chose this new place.

Rainier Provisions is a new cafe-style restaurant in Gastown, opened in February. They’re a part of Heather Hospitality group, such as Salty Tongue Cafe, Salt Tasting Room, Everything Cafe, etc. They serve from a cup of coffee to fish pie. There are vegan and gluten free dishes, too.

I ordered from their lunch menu.

Medianoche Sandwich with Kale Caesar
(Cuban Sandwich of Italian Ham, Pulled Pork, Fontina Cheese on a Parker Roll with a side of Soup or Salad)

Oh my god! This kale caesar was so good! I will repeat next time, as they have the salad without sandwiches.

And, extra pictures of the restaurant interior.
