I went to Friday Night Market in North Vancouver in September as my second time, and I got some food for Collin and myself and had some bites. While I was eating in the rain, I decided to try one more street food cart.

I went for Le Tigre. I tried their rice bowl and wanted to try another topping. They serve west coast food influenced by Chinese cuisine.

I ordered their popular dish again.

Kick Ass Rice with Popcorn Chicken

The poached egg was cooked perfectly this time. Yup, as I thought, I preferred this popcorn chicken to pork belly. What should I try next time?

As I mentioned before, Friday Night Market in North Vancouver was held at Lonsdale Quay Pier on Fridays, from 5 pm to 10 pm, between May to October. It was August, and the day time was still long, so I decided to go there and meet Collin after his night shift.

When I started to walk along street food trucks, I found Le Tigre, where I wanted to try last time but they closed earlier due to sold-out. So, I ordered right away, even before checking around all trucks. They serve contemporary west coast, influenced with Chinese food, as I understand what their website says correctly.

Poached egg was cooked more than I expected. The chilli was a bit spicy but yes kicked ass! 😀 I preferred pork belly to be cooked more firm. I would like to try it with chicken or another dish next time!

My friend sent me a text around 7:30 pm and asked if I had dinner. I said not yet, and we decided to go out for dinner. She was still at work and said that she was hungry and tired, so we were looking at some place close to where both of us were.

We found a place on Kingsway, between Joyce street and Boundary, Cattle Cafe. They serve Chinese food, maybe more likely Hong Kong style food. I wasn’t familiar with those food and their order system, and when we were seated, I was just looking around for a while, to see the others’ order and to catch our server.

Anyways, after a while, we finally placed order.

I can’t remember what exactly she ordered. She said she would like to eat pasta, so this must have spaghetti or penne underneath.

My choice, Baked Seafood & European Wieners in Cream Sauce with fried Rice

This dish description was similar to Japanese Yoshoku food, Doria, which is my favorite, so I ordered. But it tasted differently. The dish may not look like huge, but there were quite a lot of food. We both took some home.

We talked a lot, and when we checked the time, it was past 11 o’clock! Yet, surprisingly, people kept coming in at this late time.
