Continuing about Christmas Market in Vancouver, I claimed for the season’s pass when I got home. As I mentioned on the post yesterday, you will get the instructions once you paid. Anyways, when I claimed, the first email came right away, which didn’t have any information for season’s pass and I seemed to have to wait. On the next morning, we both got the second email for the pass.

Collin wanted to go on the next day, too! 😀 Well, let’s go, since it’s a free pass now. On the first day, we arrived after noon, so the line-up was a bit long but it was still quick that the line moved. On the second day with the pass, it took a second to get in, as you can get in from a VIP ticket booth.

The pictures today were taken on our second visit.

We got some food for lunch, choosing different food. This time, we both chose the same one.

I just realized this food was from the same company as Bratwurst. If you order the meal one, the haxen (ham hock) comes with bone. The meat was so tender and filled my stomach.

After eating, we checked out the line-up for the ornaments in the building, but there was a long line-up already. Collin can’t wait because he had to go to work soon, so we had some dessert instead. Dessert again?! Yeah! 🙂

Collin had this. I tasted, but it was too sweet for me. He, of course, liked it!

I liked this Tiramisu cheesecake. The crust outside was bit hard to bite, but the filling was tasty.

Here is an extra picture. There was a stage that people do some performance.

As I mentioned in the previous post, my friend bought some cake and brought to Maruchu Japanese BBQ Dining for my birthday. The cake was from Cafe de l’Orangerie.

They are located on Granville street close to Richmond. They serve Japanese style of Italian or French food as well as sells dessert, such as cake. I don’t know if you know that we do eat Christmas cake on Christmas day in Japan (maybe only when you’re a child). The shape is not only a log, but also rounded one like a birthday cake.

She bought a log shape one for my birthday. :) Thank you, my friends!

I was looking at a coupon magazine, KLIP, last month, and I knew that the cafe offered Doria, Japanese rice gratin, by the end of the month, so I had to go! 🙂 It is rare to have Doria here in Canada, and it needs time and a lot of steps to cook so that I don’t make at home. Cafe de l’Orangerie serves Japanese style of Italian or French food. They are located on Granville street close to Richmond.

We ordered from the month’s special and dinner menu.

My choice, Doria (Japanese rice gratin) from the month’s special.

Dessert, Chocolate Banana Parfait

Collin said that he was full to eat dessert and would order some cake to go. Guess what? When this parfait came, he was the one who grabbed the cup and was eating. :O Yes, of course, I was trying eating half! 😀

And, when we had strawberry short cake next day, I forgot to take a picture.
