I cannot remember why, but I had something to do in downtown Vancouver on a weekday. By the time when I finished, it was almost 8pm. It was a really cold day in early January, so I decided to take something warm to home.

I went to Joyeaux Cafe & Restaurant. It is a Vietnamese restaurant on Howe street. I have been a few times, and I always chose noodles. I had read a blog, talking about this restaurant and suggesting a different dish.

I ordered the one to go, as followed the blog’s suggestion.

Umm, it was fine, but a bit greasy, and the skin wasn’t crispy enough for me. I would stick to noodles next time, although it might not be good for to-go. 🙂

I was on Whistler mountain in the middle of December. It was still in the early season and also there wasn’t much snow fallen, so the higher alpine lifts weren’t open. Eventually I got bored, because I didn’t have many runs to ski on. I joined the complimentary tour on the mountain, which mountain hosts will take you to any available runs to introduce runs and views, based on your riding level.

After the two-hour worth of tour, my legs were so tired. I went back to Roundhouse and decided to have late lunch just before closing the kitchen. There is food available at Mountain Market on the second floor.

I ordered from the noodle bowl menu.

Looking at the picture of the menu below, the noodle bowl wasn’t available for Kids menu? Well, anyways, I was able to have it. For the noodle bowl, you can choose, one kind of noodles, one kind of protein, and one kind of broth. You can go for vegetarian choice or gluten free. I chose egg noodle, seasoned chicken, and Japanese Miso.

As a Kids Size, in addition to the noodle bowl, you can choose three of any combinations from fruits drink, and snack. For fruits, there were choices, orange or apple. For drink, a pack of juice, milk, etc. For snack, carrots, Edamame, or yogurt.

After visiting Farmer’s Market, I walked around downtown Vancouver as well as Granville Island to look for some birthday gifts for my friend. When I checked the time, it was dinner time! Yeah, summer time always makes me lose track of the time.

I have kept BaoQi Eateri in my mind for quite a while since I read a blog post. Also, my boss recently talked about this place that she really liked their Pho. Anyways, it made me go there. They are a small Vietnamese restaurant on Davie, close to Yaletown. There is a long table that people share to seat, and also a few small tables.

I ordered from their regular menu.

I think the soup was a bit salty to me, but maybe because I went there after 6-hour of walking. If I went with friends, I could have ordered side dishes, which I would love to.
