The weather forecast looked good in the middle of October. It was a Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend, and my friend asked me what I would do on that weekend. I invited her to go for walking. We talked about where to go and decided to go to Stanley Park.

We started to walk from Denman Street, passed by Beaver Lake, crossed the HWY, looked down the Siwash Rock, and kept walking. After about 5km walk, we finally saw the cafe that we were planning to stop by.

The Teahouse is located in the western Stanley Park, between Siwash Rock and Third Beach. There are parking lots, but they were packed when we were there. The restaurant serves west coast cuisine but also you can have just tea and dessert. We were there around 4pm, but the tables were almost full. The reservation is recommended.

We ordered tea and dessert.

I went to Friday Night Market in North Vancouver in September as my second time, and I got some food for Collin and myself and had some bites. While I was eating in the rain, I decided to try one more street food cart.

I went for Le Tigre. I tried their rice bowl and wanted to try another topping. They serve west coast food influenced by Chinese cuisine.

I ordered their popular dish again.

Kick Ass Rice with Popcorn Chicken
(Cooked in Sake, butter, Dashi, and topped with a perfect Poached Egg, fresh herbs and Thai Chillies)

The poached egg was cooked perfectly this time. Yup, as I thought, I preferred this popcorn chicken to pork belly. What should I try next time?

In the last September, although it was raining a bit, I decided to go to Friday Night Market in North Vancouver. It was held at Lonsdale Quay Pier on Fridays between May to October. When I headed, I told Collin I would be there and meet me after work.

First, I looked around which food trucks were there, when I got there. There were a few new trucks, but I didn’t feel like eating their foods and went for one of the famous food trucks, which was Feastro. They primarily serve tacos. I watched their food on TV, and since then, it was on my wish list.

I ordered their primary dish, four tacos, two for me and two for him.

We took those two tacos home, so they looked awful, but it was our fault. We should have eaten at the market. It was raining, and we didn’t want to stay there. Anyways, he ate the pulled pork tacos and liked it, but he preferred jerk chicken. I ate the tuna tacos and really liked it.
