Lunch at Saboten in Aberdeen Center

I love Japanese Curry! If you need a fix of Japanese (or any Asian) cuisine, you should definitely go to Richmond.

The curry from Saboten tasted like what you would expect from Japan. The meat was tender (though a bit too oily), and the sauce was at the right consistency. Overall, I am happy and satisfied with my Japanese Curry.

Lunch at Cucina Manila

There's an area in Joyce-Collingwood neighbourhood (near St. Mary's Catholic Church), which felt like home. There are a few Filipino restaurants, there's a lot of Filipino, and there's even a Filipino Mass.

Having lunch here feels like being home.

Friday Night Out at Pumphouse Taproom

My sister wanted to go out last night because it was Friday. Again, ever since we attended the travel meetup, she wanted to try something new every Friday after her classes. Since I can't accompany her yesterday to the Vancouver Lookout Tower, She suggested we go to a restaurant or bar in Richmond. After researching, she decided we should try Pumphouse Taproom because she wanted some alcoholic drinks.

I, on the other hand, am a foodie, so I was after trying out their food. I had their Prosciutto Chicken Burger while sister had a Calamari.

Prosciutto Chicken Burger


The Calamari was superb. It was crispy and wasn't chewy or oily at all. I wish I could say the same for the Chicken burger. Sadly, the burger I ordered was dry, and the whole thing was just tasteless. I was telling my sister that I should have probably ordered their other burger.

Ambiance and service were also excellent. It was a pub/bar because of the full range of beer and alcoholic drinks that they serve. There was a lot of TV screen, a fireplace outside, a billiard table, and some board games. It was a place where friends and colleagues would spend after office on a Friday night.

Dinner at Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant

My sister and I went to a Travel Meetup at the Art Institute of Vancouver. Since we arrived a bit early for the event, we decided to have dinner at Vallarta's Mexican Restaurant.

The ambiance is like a setting from a Mexican movie. My sister loved it! Now, let's go to our food. Sister ordered Beef Quesadilla while I had Nachos. The serving was good for three people. We had some leftovers.



The Quesadilla was salty. Meanwhile, Nachos needs more cheese. It was not the best quesadilla and nachos we've had.
