Posts Tagged ‘Roti Canai’

We usually have a dine-out for dinner, when one of our close friends’ birthday comes up. In September, there are two of our friends, whose birthday was coming up. However, one of them is a newly mom. I asked her if she can come out, asking her parents to watch her baby or taking her baby to a restaurant, or if it would be better to have a party at her place so that she can watch her baby. Her preference was the latter.

So, I budgeted with another friend and chose restaurants and menu. As the date was set on a weekday, I asked Collin to pick up everything. (Well, he agreed!) Here are where he went: Whole Foods, Shanghai Xiao Long Bao, Mogu, and Banana Leaf Malaysian Cuisine. Choosing dishes was the tough part, because another birthday friend doesn’t eat seafood and it had to be within a budget, unlike we pay whatever at a restaurant.

Tada~! This is all food.

Collin shucked the oysters at the birthday girl’s place. He prepared mignonette at our house, before he went shopping. Everybody (except the birthday boy) enjoyed the oysters with the mignonette.

Shanghai Xiao Long Bao Restaurant is on Richards street and a couple of blocks away from Waterfront station. Collin and I liked their Xiao Long Bao last time, so I included it in the order. Also Kung Pao chicken, which is diced Chicken with peanut in spicy sauce. In addition, I asked Collin to get some veggies. We all enjoyed their food.

As the birthday girl had told me that she wanted to eat their food again and the birthday boy likes Karaage, I put it in the list. I sent an email to them in advance and asked where to catch them and the closing time for that day.

Roti Canai and Satay

There are no specific reasons why I chose this restaurant. The birthday girl requested no Japanese food, and the birthday boy likes Chinese food except seafood, and I just wanted to choose something that both birthday friends would love but that we can take out. I remembered the girls wanted to order hot sour soup when we had a birthday dinner in a Thai restaurant for one of us, but we didn’t order and it could be nice to have some this time. Since Collin picked up the oysters at Whole Foods, he ordered from the restaurant on Broadway.

Here was a predicted incident happened! I had given him a list of all orders, and when he came back from some of the pick-ups, he said he had lost the paper. I had written some notes precisely for this restaurant, as I knew he would need to confirm. Since I was working, I told him what to order orally instead of re-writing. When he came back again and I checked the receipt, the satay was ordered for 4 skewers with one each kind! Oh no! What I wanted to ordered was 4 skewers per each kind! Well, at the end of the day, there were enough food on the table, although we couldn’t taste each kind of satay.

And, there was another mistake, which was my fault! I thought the birthday boy can eat shrimp, but apparently he doesn’t eat! He is not allergic, but he just doesn’t. Sorry to him.

On the first weekend of June, I sent a text to my friend if she wanted to go for walk and see the baby swans in West Vancouver. I bought some food at Fujiya and we had a picnic lunch by the pond, watching them. They were too cute to ignore!

Anyways, we walked around quite a bit, and we realized it was getting dark. The day time is long at that time that made us forget what time it was. We were thinking of a seafood restaurant in North Vancouver for dinner, but when I called, they said they would be close in 15 min or so. It was Sunday, so we had to find somewhere open til late like lounge. Then, this restaurant came up, since we were heading that way anyways.

Ebo Restaurant in Burnaby. They have lounge that will serve some tapas size food til late. The restaurant is in The Delta Burnaby Hotel.

We ordered from their lounge menu.

The one we ate at Eat! Vancouver tasted better. Don’t know why, but maybe got soggy or oily by the time all of them were made? Well, still good, though.

Chicken Satays

Satays were good. The pickled cucumber was really helpful for the refreshment.

Local Mussels

Accidentally, my flash turned on! 😛 We liked this mussels. I would order it next time, too.

If you are looking for somewhere for late meal, this is a great place. Not many people, and food is good.

And, for the cuties, wanna see another pic? 😀

This was the third year we tried their booth at Eat! Vancouver. Ebo Restaurant participated in this event this year again. Collin and I, and also my friend went to their booth first. They provided 3 different dish, satay and roti canai, burger, and a dessert, I believe cheesecake.

At their booth

Here is a picture that a staff was making roti canai at the booth.
