2021 Update: This place has now permanently closed in this location. Slickity Jim's Chat & Choux is a small breakfast place in the neighbourhood.

Dinner at Earls

We want to watch the Whitecaps game, but we don't have a TV. We decided to have dinner here and catch the second half of the game. Oven Roasted Salmon Feta, caper, and dill aioli, jasmine rice, and seasonal vegetables The salmon was delicious. Thankfully, it's what hubby ordered. I tried the Beyond Burger and it was dry. It's such a disappointment because Earls vegetarian burger was delicious, but it's no longer available. Beyond Burger 100% plant based burger, tomatoes, onions, lettuce pickles mayonnaise and mustard on a toasted brioche bun. Earls, please bring back your vegetarian burger.

Happiness found at Japadog

I love Japadog and not the hotdog itself but the flavour they create. As you can see from this blog, we go to Japanese restaurants frequently and Japadog recreates those flavour profiles in hotdog sandwich form. Plus they have french fries drenches in Japanese Curry Sauce. Two things I love in one dish. Terimayo and Okonomi Chicken Karaage and Curry Fries
