The event for Collin’s birthday still continued. 🙂 When a birthday for one of our close friends comes up, we plan to get together. This time was no exception. We gathered up for him and had dinner.

He chose the restaurant, Shanghai Xiao Long Bao. It is located in a couple of blocks away from Waterfront station. Our friends arrived there first and were guided to the party room, but they seemed to ask to seat at an open table instead. As far as I see, the room was cozy but you maybe feel suffocated.

We ordered dishes with meat or veggies, as one of us does not eat seafood.

Honey Beef

This tasted good! The sweetness was just right.

Steamed Pork Bun (6 pieces)

One of the friends said she preferred this to pan-fried one. I preferred pan-fried.

Moo Shu Pork
(Sauteed Sliced Pork, Eggs and Black Fungus)

I didn’t know what moo shu was. It is basically a stir-fry with wood ear mushroom (black fungus) and eggs. I never liked the mushroom, but I liked this dish. That’s good! Thin pancake came with this dish, and you eat, wrapping moo shu, like Fajita.

Fried Green Beans with Minced Pork in Spicy Sauce

As the name said, it was spicy! With all other dishes, it was a great kick.

Baked Scallion Pancake

This vegetarian dish was much tastier than I thought. I believe green onions were inside, and I don’t remember if there were the other veggies. 😛

Pan-fried Pork Bun (6 pieces)

This is always good! Hot juice comes out when you bite. Watch your mouth, don’t get burn!

Pan-fried Pork Dumplings (6 pieces)

All dishes were so good. I’m glad that I found more dishes that I like from this restaurant.

And, as usual, we got some birthday cake. From where? It will be revealed in the next post. 🙂

One of my friends went to Japan for a month and came back, so we decided to meet up with the other common friend. The common friend picked this restaurant. I’ve heard their food is good, so I was excited to go there. Hanwoori Korean Restaurant is one and half block away from the intersection of Imperial street and Kingsway in Burnaby.

As both I and my friends were not familiar with Korean cuisine, we took long time to decide what to order. It was a bit cold day as November, so we chose a hot soup. I can’t remember if the soup or bulgogi was with combo, anyways, we ordered one of them as a combo.

I liked the pancake. Kimchi Jiigae soup was really spicy for me, but the taste was good. We all were not so much fun of the bulgogi. It was too sweet.

It was Italian Day festival held on Commercial Drive on one Sunday. The event was scheduled to start at 12:00, so I told Collin that we should have lunch before going, because otherwise, he wouldn’t have time to walk around the event due to his work shift.

We decided to go to a Japanese restaurant on Commercial Drive that is Kishimoto Japanese Kitchen + Sushi Bar, as it was close to where the event was held and also Collin hadn’t been there yet.

We ordered from their regular menu.
