Lunch delivery from Hokkaido Ramen Santouka

Happy Sunday! It's the last day of the month, and hubby said that we should order ramen.

Our order from Hokkaido Ramen Santouka

Two-level containers with soup at the bottom and the noodles and toppings at the top.

Hubby loves the containers for the ramen! The soup is at the bottom, while the noodles and toppings are at the top of the container. You just need to pour the container's top floor to the bottom floor to have your ramen mixed together.

Kara-Miso Cha-Shu Ramen - Seasoned with hot spices and miso (fermented soybean paste). Egg noodles, a double portion of pork belly, green onions, black mushrooms, fishcake, bamboo shoots, and sesame seeds.

I love the egg noodles in the ramen. It has a nice bite, and it's perfectly cooked (not soggy), and the cha-shu (pork belly) is fatty and melts in your mouth. However, I did find the broth too salty. It could be me and my overall low salt tolerance.

Toroniku Shio Ramen - Pork broth seasoned with salt. Simmered pork jowl(cheek), bamboo shoot, mushroom, green onion, naruto fish cake, Japanese plum and sesame seed.

Zangi - Deep-fried chicken 

I have no idea why it's called zangi and not kara-age. (A few moments later). I did a quick Google Search, and kara-age is what the Japanese called fried chicken. However, in Hokkaido, they call kara-age, zangi. The cooking is different as well. When cooking zangi, you marinate the chicken first, but this is not done in kara-age. 

Gyoza - Japanese fried pork dumplings (five pieces)

A reminder for future me: don't order Gyoza next time even though you love dumplings. Get two orders of the fried chicken instead.

Happy Sunday!

Lunch from Triple O's

Happy Friday! Hubby's team is having team lunch today, and their team manager gave them each a $30 DoorDash gift card (Yay!). We decided to order from Triple O's. When I was thinking about what to order, I looked at old blog posts to see what I have already tried. There's just a lot of blog posts, so I made a list to help me decide (refer to the end of the post). Limited Time Pizza Burger Holy smokes! We love ordering limited-time dishes from basically anywhere. Last year, we tried Triple O's Chicken and Waffle. This year, it's time to give their Pizza Burger a shot alongside their limited-time Chocolate Espresso Milkshake. Triple O's Pizza Burger Our NEW Pizza Burger is made with our delicious 100% fresh Canadian Beef, Genoa-style salami, mozzarella sticks, banana peppers, mayonnaise, and a zesty pizza sauce. The Pizza Burger is spicy be

My Birthday Celebration: Cake from Arts to Bakes

It's my birthday weekend. We went to my parent's place in Richmond, BC, to celebrate. Don't worry, we didn't invite people to the celebration - it's just seven people and two households. The first household is me, and my husband and the second household is my parents and three siblings. Mocha Cake from Arts to Bakes KayeBakes CA is my go-to cake source, but Kaye is busy, so I asked the Filipino food group if they would please recommend a place or person who bakes delicious mocha cake since I really want it for my birthday. The first comment recommended Arts to Bakes. I sent their page a message and asked about the price, delivery, etc. Mocha Cake from Arts to Bakes in Vancouver, BC. It's too pretty to eat. I am delighted with the mocha cake. It's beautiful, and more importantly, it's delicious. The cake is moist, and initially, I thought the coffee flavour is too strong, but with each bite, including the buttercream, it's perfect. The sweet chocolate

Dream Donuts 2021 from Tim Hortons

Happy Thursday! It's also National Lego Day! I ordered a "4 Privet Drive" Harry Potter Lego Set and got two free items. Unfortunately, FedEx didn't ring our doorbell or gave us a call when it tried to deliver it to our place, so we had to pick it up at the closest FedEx pickup point. Since it's National Lego Day, we decided to pick it up today. We also decided to grab donuts from Tim Hortons before heading home. Hubby requested that I get any limited edition donuts that they have. Looking at the menu, they're promoting the "Dream Donuts," and I got both Chocolate Hazelnut Éclair Dream and Sea Salted Caramel Dream. Chocolate Hazelnut Éclair Dream I enjoyed both donuts. It's surprisingly not stale. It's soft, and the filling inside the Éclair is delicious. I am willing to get it again. Sea Salted Caramel Dream The Sea Salted Caramel Dream is good, but not as delicious as the eclair. At least, it wasn't stale like the Dream Donuts from last

Mother's Day Celebration Lunch from SURA Korean BBQ (Hazelbridge)

Happy Mother's Day to all moms! After more than a month, we went to Richmond today to spend the day with Mama and my siblings. We also watched the Vancouver Whitecaps FC game against Montreal, and we won! Thank God! Anyway, for our lunch celebration, we ordered from SURA Korean BBQ. I loved and enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. Delivery from SURA Korean BBQ Banchan Royal Beef Galbi (Beef Short Ribs) Royal Pork Galbi (Pork Spareribs) Seafood Pancake Japchae (Potato Noodles) Kimchi Fried Rice Which dish will I totally order again ? The galbi. The sauce is delicious! Although, I couldn't justify the price for the serving size. I can't believe that after a year we're still celebrating at home. Hopefully, next year we enjoy mom's favourite dishes in her favourite Korean restaurant. We actually miss grilling Korean BBQ in a Korean restaurant.

My IKEA Food Subscription Experience: Swedish Meatballs Bundle

IKEA is doing a trial run of their food subscription service here in Vancouver. Our zip code qualifies, so I thought, why not try and see how things work out. How to join? Ordering is easy. You just go to the IKEA Food Subscription page and check if your postal code is included in its service area. They have two boxes, a "Swedish Meatballs Meal Bundle" for $50.49 (including tax) and a "Swedish Treats Bundle" for $33.46 (including tax). I got both. The Experience Payment Issues I know it's a trial, and I expect that there will be challenges along the way. IKEA sent me an email confirming my order, and I am excited. After 12 hours, they sent me another email confirming my order with a different order number. It seems like they processed my subscription twice and charged my credit card twice for $83.95. I am unhappy. I called them as soon as I saw the second charge. I want to know if I made a mistake when placing the order or what's going on. The folks handlin

Where to get Buko Pie in Vancouver?

I am craving for Filipino buko pie, but I don't know where's the best place to get one that will deliver to our home. I asked the Facebook group I belong to and below are their suggestions: Vancouver Restaurants with Buko Pie Kumare Restaurant and Bakery - They have a branch in Richmond, Delta, and Vancouver. Hapag Ihaw Ihaw Filipino Grill - Two people, recommended the buko pie from Hapag. They're located in Victoria Drive, Vancouver.

Home-Based Online Vendor with Buko Pie Pinay Bakes - Facebook page - Two people recommended their buko pie. Ruby Lyn Dacanay - She's the first one to send me a private message and pictures of the buko pie, and it looks great. Do you know of other places in Vancouver that serve buko pie? Leave a comment
