Dinner from Boom Kitchen at BC Place | Vancouver Whitecaps FC vs Minnesota United FC

Happy Friday! We took our usual almost 5 kilometres walk to BC Place to watch the Vancouver Whitecaps FC game tonight. We arrived a few minutes before the gate opened at 6:30 PM.

We ordered the remaining two items that we have not tried from Boom Kitchen.

Dinner from Boom Kitchen

Vegan and Gluten-Free Food at BC Place

We tried the Super Happy Power Bowl, the only Vegan and Gluten-Free item we've tried so far. If you're not allergic to gluten and not vegan, this is not something I recommend.

Super Happy Power Bowl
Butternut squash, flavoured tofu, red pepper, sweet corn, edamame, heirloom tomato, marinated slaw, served on brown rice and quinoa.

They did not treat the quinoa with respect. It was grainy and hard, which is unfortunate. The tofu was cooked well, and there's a decent sauce in it but not enough to cover everything.

I had high expectations for this dish because the two other bowls from Boom Kitchen were delicious.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

The Prime Rib Grilled Cheese sandwich was acceptable. The rib was fatty and tender, but it was too oily that I wish they had used a spicy sauce or included something sour to cut through the fat.

Overall, it was a disappointing dinner. To make things slightly better, I ordered french fries and nachos with cheese. I wonder if I can buy cheese dip with my fries instead of nachos. Hmmm.

Unfortunately, it's not enough for the painful loss suffered by the Whitecaps tonight. The first half went well. They had a string of good passes, but the second half was a disaster defensive-wise. As a result, the 'Caps lost 3-1.

We won't be watching at BC Place until the Canadian Championship finals against Toronto FC since we have vacation plans on the weekend of the 23rd.

I was just thinking that it might be better when our couple's hobby was playing Pokemon Go. 😅 We don't spend as much, and we always have fun. 🙃
