In the middle of July, I went hiking with my friends. A few weeks back, the snow still remained on the trailhead where we planned, and we changed to the lower location to hike. We re-visited the trail this time if the snow was gone. And, it was!

After we hiked for a couple of hours, we went to downtown Vancouver to have brunch. I relied on my friends where to go. The place we headed was Subeez Cafe Restaurant Bar. It is closer to Yaletown.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

My choice, Eggs Benjamin
(Poached eggs, Smoked Salmon and Hollandaise on an English muffin, Hash Browns and West Coast Greens)

On that day, I didn’t feel like eating sandwiches, so I chose egg benny with smoked salmon. I always think that you can’t expect egg benny to be best in town rather than whether poached egg is cooked perfectly and Hollandaise sauce is nicely done or not, can you? I’m dreaming to eat the best egg benny in Canada one day. 🙂

When Collin asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I suggested if he can make me 10-course homemade dinner and he agreed to it. My birthday is December, but it was on weekend last year and he had to work. So, the dinner date was set on a weekday.

The course was planned as tapas style, so no main dish, and included some that I liked in the past when he made.

1st course: Quinoa chickpea pave with Coleslaw

He made this one in the previous month. As a part of 10-course meal, each one was too big! 🙂

2nd course: Smoked salmon wonton

3rd course: Marinated eggplant

I basically like eggplant, and after I ate marinated eggplant at Fishworks and Bao Bei, I told him I liked them and I can eat them every day. So, he sometimes makes some for me, and this time wasn’t exception. 🙂

4th course: Prosciutto wrapped chicken with Parsnip purée

5th course: Wonton soup

He made won ton soup in the past and I liked them, too. But this time, he put some unique spice, and I didn’t like so much. 😦

6th course: Scallop with butternut squash and bacon

7th course: Prawn cream cheese cannelloni with Rose sauce

8th course: Spicy green beans and cashew pork

As I liked the green beans dish that he made before, I requested the one. This was so spicy and I ended up having him eat some.

9th course: Apricot rum poached pear marshmallow soup (It was supposed to be two desserts, but we were full so he changed the menu at last minute.)

So, this is a hot soup. Because of that, marshmallows were melting in the soup. Mm, so good!

The dishes were served a bit too fast (because I’m slow eater!). I kept eating, sometimes having two or three plates in front of me, for 2 hours or so. I thought my stomach was going to explode! 😀

One of my co-workers notified me that there was an event of Burton BC Sample Sale back in September. Collin and I went there to see if we can get something cheaper or what we needed. After going this event, we were looking for a place to eat. There was a noodle place where we wanted to go, but we found out it wasn’t so close from Broadway at Cambie.

While we were walking on Broadway east and west, I remembered that there was a cafe on Cambie, which I found on the way back home from a restaurant before. The cafe is Moii Cafe where serves crepe and tea. I don’t think they have coffee, though.

We ordered from their savory and sweet crepe menu.

Their crepe wasn’t so bad. I would come back to try the other ones. 🙂
