For my birthday weekend in December, I asked Collin to go for brunch. As usual, we left home later than we thought, we looked for a restaurant somewhere close to Waterfront station, as he had to go to work after. I suggested a couple of places, and he agreed to one of them.

It was Tuc Craft Kitchen in Gastown, close to Woodward’s. I have been there with one of my friends for dinner, but for him, it was the first time.

We ordered from their brunch menu.

My choice, Berries & Gaufres
(Fresh Waffles, Blueberry Compote, Cream Cheese)

Gaufres are waffles in French. They were thin crispy waffles. If I liked it? Not so much, I mean, it was different. I prefer waffles like crispy outside and fluffy inside.

His choice, Crispy Chicken & Waffles
(Free run Chicken Breast, Savory Waffles, Dijon Mournaise)

Unlike me, he liked his dish. He seemed to like the combination of savory chicken and waffles. According to him, the chicken was crispy outside and moist inside. Plus, he liked the sauce, too. I couldn’t find what the Mournaise is.

When I attended my friend’s baby shower, I made some new friends. As I go hiking quite a lot, some of them asked me to take them for easy ones. Since then, I planned a couple of times and we had fun. In September, one of them contacted me and asked me if I can go hiking to a trail that I hadn’t been and also to go to this restaurant where I told her I had wanted to go, when I looked at her picture on Facebook.

The place was Cora. When I saw their food on the blog of a friend of a friend, that reminded me of food at Eggsquis in Quebec, and I really wanted to eat. The restaurant is in Coquitlam and Richmond, and they serve huge breakfast meal.

Here are what we ordered.

This is super huge! Of course, she didn’t finish them. She asked real maple syrup, and these ones came. You get charged for this.

I believe this was vegetarian choice. She said there were lots of potatoes that made her stomach full.

My choice, Cora’s Special
(2 Eggs, Bacon, Ham, Sausage and Crepe)

The crepe was so small. That was a sad thing, but the dish had a pretty volume. I would like to try waffle next time, maybe? Not before hiking, though. 😉

Skipping my past food pictures for now, I’m going to up some timely pictures. 😀 There must be Christmas events everywhere in the world, and Vancouver is no exception. For the first time, I went to German Christmas Market here in Vancouver. This event is held at the plaza in Queen Elizabeth Theater until Dec 24, started from the end of November. The theater is close to Stadium Skytrain station, in a walking distance from Vancouver downtown core.

I already have been three times, as I claimed the season pass! Everyone can do so, once you paid at the first time. The staff will explain to you as well as the receipt tells you how to do it.

The pictures today were taken on my first visit.

Santa was along the line up, when Collin and I was there. He looked like giving some candies to children.

There are lots of booths for gifts and food in the market. You will need some ID if you want to get some alcohol. We got some food for lunch.

Grill Bratwurst from Black Forest Meat & Sausages

Collin got this. I asked the staff what the difference between Grill and Schnechen was, and they showed the curling one is Schnechen.

German Schnitzel Wrap from Das Schnitzelhaus (Schnitzel House)
(Stuffed with Coleslaw & Tomatoes)

I had this. They fried Schnitzel in the deep-fryer first. It was a cold day, so I guess they warmed it up for me.

After walking on booths for gifts, we decided to have some dessert.

They have two kinds of waffles; one is this German waffle, and the other is Belgian waffle (rounded one). As I haven’t seen the German one before, we chose this. There was also a promotion with $13 for two German waffles.

The Day 1 was passed great!

Here is an extra picture. There was a merry-go-round in the market.
