Taiwanese Pork Chop with Fried Rice for dinner from Typhoon Bubble Tea Cafe

Typhoon Bubble Tea Cafe is located in the Cambie Plaza strip mall in Richmond. I remember noticing them five years ago when I still live with my parents. Unfortunately, they are cash only, and I don't carry cash.

This is what I ordered for dinner from Typhoon Bubble Tea Cafe.

We visited my siblings in Richmond today, and our youngest sister requested that we order from Typhoon because she wants rice. So, of course, I am more than happy to oblige since I love Taiwanese cuisine, and as expected, I ordered a lot for my husband and me to share.

Typhoon House Special Chicken Nuggets

We ordered chicken nuggets for sharing, which was a good bite-size fried chicken.

Taiwanese Sausage with Rice and Sides

We love Taiwanese Sausage, but this one is not as sweet as I am used to when ordering from other Taiwanese restaurants.

Taiwanese Pork Chop with Fried Rice

The fried rice is exceptionally flavorful and delicious. It's the best thing tonight and works well with anything. I didn't expect the pork chop to be as it is. The flavour was good, but I expected it to have the same level of seasoning as the chicken nuggets. 

Taiwanese Style Plain Noodles with Bean Sprouts and Meat Sauce in Soup

Other than the fried rice, the best thing tonight is the soup. It's a warm, clean broth that's comforting to the soul. But, unfortunately, the delicious broth couldn't save the plain noodle and bean sprouts.

I can't wait to try the soup with beef. I bet it'll be delicious.

Dinner from Boston Pizza

Happy Saturday! Our only brother resigned from his first full-time job and will start his new work on Monday. To celebrate his freedom from his old company, we decided to have beer, cocktails, pizza, and dessert at their home. We watched Phineas and Ferb: Star Wars then played Smash Bros. on the Nintendo Switch. We also worked together to clean up afterwards because there was no Mama to clean after us.


Dinner from Boston Pizza

Since we're craving pizza, we had it delivered from Boston Pizza alongside two of their appetizers and a pasta which I didn't take a picture of.

Classic Nachos

Bandera Pizza Bread

Pepperoni

The Meateor

I love my siblings and more so now that we're all adults. We ordered what seemed like insufficient food, but we even had leftovers! We also shared the bill equally, and my younger sister commented that I don't think we will have any money problems in the future since you guys pay your share quickly. She's right, and I pray that God continues to bless us physically, spiritually, emotionally, and financially!

English Breakfast from Le Petit Belge | How to celebrate your Oath of Citizenship Ceremony?

It's a special day. My husband is having his Oath of Citizenship Ceremony today as the final step in becoming a Canadian citizen. So to celebrate, we decided to have English food for breakfast, French cuisine for lunch, and Indigenous specialty for dinner in honour of the three groups that founded Canada: the aboriginal (First Nations, Inuit, and Metis people), the French, and the British. We also took the day off today, so a break from work.

We searched for English Breakfast online, and the restaurant Google suggested is Le Petit Belge. We checked their menu, and sure enough, there was English Hot Breakfast which we ordered for my husband. Then, of course, I had my "usual" Salmon Benny with an English muffin. We have English Breakfast tea at home, which we enjoy with our meal.

Breakfast from Le Petit Belge

Unfortunately, the English Hot Breakfast arrived without the baked beans and baked tomatoes, making it just a Hot Breakfast and not the "English" experience. To say that my husband is disappointed is an understatement. However, he won't let it go and have asked me to write about it and to leave a review that a restaurant with a French name which specializes in Belgian waffles does not serve English Breakfast.

English Hot Breakfast
Bacon, pork sausage, sunny side up, oven-baked potatoes, beans in tomato sauce, baked tomatoes, mushrooms, and bagel

Salmon Benny
Sliced smoked sockeye salmon, two poached eggs, avocado, oven-baked potatoes, hollandaise sauce, and English muffin

Though, I highly recommend the Salmon Benny. The avocado with salmon and the creamy hollandaise sauce is done exceptionally well.

I also ordered the Fresh Fruit Bowl.

Fresh Fruit Bowl (Banana, Blackberry, Blueberry, and Strawberry)

Thank you, Canada, for welcoming us to your beautiful country.

Game Day Snacks from Cineplex

Our family loves sports. One of my early memories of professional sports is when my dad watched a PBA (Philippine Basketball Association) game on our black and white television.

I watched all local basketball games in my early teens - PBA, collegiate, and even amateur. I remember wanting to be a courtside sports reporter (but my English grades weren't excellent). I also had four thick notebooks filled with basketball articles I clipped from the newspaper. I read the sports section every day. I even wrote about exciting games in my notebook. Then, of course, I watched games in person as well.

Now that we moved to Vancouver, Canada, it makes sense that we would learn the sports they watch in North America. Our only brother is our guide. He studied* the rules of American football so we could enjoy NFL games, he watched Major League Soccer on our TV, and I did too.

Anyway, all these backstories are my way of saying that today was a big day. Our Vancouver Whitecaps FC (football club) is in the playoffs for the first time since 2017.

Game Day snacks from Cineplex

Hotdogs, Nachos, and Popcorn from Cineplex

We watched their 2017 playoff run on TV when they won against San Jose at home and lost to Seattle as well. Today, we were gathered around the TV to support the team. We also watched their last two home games in BC Place against Minnesota and Seattle.

The team lost today, but the rollercoaster ride of supporting a sports team is satisfying.

* One of the best ways to learn about sports is watching an anime because the good ones break down each play and position. Personally, what got me to love basketball is Slam Dunk.

Movie Night Popcorn and Snacks from Cineplex

Happy Saturday!

Before the pandemic, hubby and I go to the movie house at least once a month to watch any random movie that seems interesting.

Our two go-to theatres are the Cineplex at 5th and Burrard Street since it's walking distance and the Scotiabank Theatre Downtown.

Because we had popcorn with our brunch earlier, I have been craving popcorn all day. Thank God, my hubby is an enabler and said sure, order popcorn.

Cineplex Snacks for Movie Night at Home

I went crazy and ordered the following items:
  • 1x Combo for Two (One large popcorn layered butter on top and middle, two large drinks, and M&M's Peanut)
  • 1x Pulled Pork Poutine - My personal favourite.
  • 1x Large Fries with Nacho Cheese and Cheddar Chipotle Dip
  • 2x Dog n' Nachos
When our order arrived, we watched Jungle Cruise on Disney Plus for our movie date night. Unexpectedly, we were food coma afterwards, and we haven't been food coma in months!

Dinner: First time trying Popeyes

Happy Saturday and Labour Day Longe Weekend.

We spent most of the day at my parent's place in Richmond, BC, and their apartment is close to a Popeyes and a Church's Chicken. I want to do a fried chicken battle between the two fried chicken fast-food chains, but to get things started, I ordered from Popeyes tonight. We ordered for delivery with UberEats.

Popeyes Feast

As you can see from the picture above, I ordered a lot. I ordered 8 pieces Bonafide Chicken Family Meal (half mild and half spicy), large cajun gravy, three chicken sandwiches, macaroni and cheese, cajun fries, mashed potatoes and gravy, onion rings, and 8 pieces of New Nugget. Plus, they gave us five biscuits.

Bonafide Chicken Family Meal 

Spicy Chicken Sandwiches

8 pieces nuggets

Signature Sides: Cajun Fries, Mashed Potatoes with Cajun Fries, Biscuits, Onion Rings, and Macaroni and Cheese

As I write this blog post, I haven't tried the spicy fried chicken, so I can't comment yet if I like it better than the one from Church's. However, I can tell their biscuits are using salted butter, and the texture is my favourite of all the ones I have tried so far.

The Spicy Chicken Sandwich was delicious. It was spicy, and the chicken was big. Unfortunately, I can't deliver it to our home in Vancouver; otherwise, I will order one chicken sandwich from KFC, Church's, and Popeyes.

My favourite side is Macaroni and Cheese. Unfortunately, the Onion Rings and Cajun Fries didn't arrive crispy, which is unfortunate. However, the Cajun Gravy is the surprise; it was sweeter than I expected.

Overall, a good experience from Popeyes. However, there are many good fried chicken restaurants in Metro Vancouver, so I don't think I'll crave Popeyes anytime soon.

Birthday Dinner from Chop Steakhouse

It's my sister's birthday, so we decided to celebrate at my parent's place. My sister has already been vaccinated, and we're so happy since she's a frontline worker.

My brother and youngest sister are almost always home except for walking to a nearby Shoppers. It's my mom who goes to the groceries once a week. Hubby and I are the same. Hopefully, our small bubble stays safe and healthy.

Anyway, for my sister's birthday, she wants food from Chop Steakhouse.

11 oz medium Centre Cut New York with fresh seasonal vegetables (green beans and beets) and Yukon Gold mashed potatoes

Honestly, for steak delivered, it's one of the best steaks we've had. Even better than The Keg. The steak is perfectly seasoned and delicious.

Miso Glazed Salmon with loaded baked potatoes and fresh seasonal vegetables

The salmon is good. I still prefer the one from The Keg. We also failed in understanding how the loaded baked potatoes work. The order arrived with little containers that include bacon bits, chopped green onions, and sour cream. I failed to recognize that those are for baked potatoes. I was halfway to eating the baked potato before making it "loaded."

Steak Chop Salad Entree for brother

Flourless Chocolate Torte

I actually don't recommend the dessert we ordered.

I also got to try the Oven Roasted Chicken, and it was crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. It's perfectly seasoned too. Yum!

Happy birthday, sister!

Dinner delivery from Chipotle

For dinner tonight, I decided to check Uber Eats instead of our usual SkipTheDishes just because I'm getting "tired" of the options available in Skip. I picked Chipotle.

Dinner from Chipotle

Sharing a burrito

The burrito we ordered was huge, and we decided to split it for sharing. I got a burrito bowl as well, which we will have for breakfast tomorrow morning.

A burrito and a burrito bowl plus guacamole and queso blanco

I have high expectations of the chips, but it was too salty for my liking, which is unfortunate. The guacamole and queso Blanco was good, though.

Breakfast Tomorrow

Happy Saturday!

Lunch delivery from Triple O's

It's my 5th anniversary in Canada, so for lunch today, we decided to order from a Canadian fast-food chain, Triple O.

Two Burger Combo from Triple O's (yay for milkshakes)
Monty Mushroom Burger

Chipotle BBQ Bacon Melt

Between the two burgers, I will order the Chipotle BBQ Bacon Melt again. The crispy bacon provided a different texture to the burger, and in comparison, the Monty Mushroom Burger fell short.
My favourite side is their Garlic Parmesan Fries!

Yay for Triple O's burger delivery and, more importantly, milkshakes.

Dinner delivery from A&W

I enjoy (most of the time) watching the Whitecaps FC, so for dinner tonight we ordered from one of their sponsors (or partners, not really sure what their deal is), A&W.


Cheddar Bacon Uncle® Burger

Mozza Burger® 


Yay for fast food. Between the two burgers, I prefer the Uncle because of the pickle - it provided a much-needed acidity to the juicy burger.

Lunch delivery from Hot Star and Big G

Last Wednesday, we ordered salt and pepper chicken popcorn from Redbeef Noodles and it was delicious. Today, I decided to order Taiwanese-style salt and pepper fried chicken and chicken popcorn from two places I have tried before: Hot Star and Big G.

They're both available in Uber Eats, so I placed my order.

Taste

I surprisingly prefer Hot Star's Salt and Pepper Original Large Fried Chicken. For some reason, Big G's Taiwanese Jumbo Chicken Steak is too sweet. What Big G has going for it are the sides like the curry rice (although, I could be biased since I love curry)

Order from Big G
Order from Hot Star
Since it was delivered, I don't expect a lot of crispy and crunch, but they both arrived hot crunchy and crispy.

The chicken on the left is from Big G while the one on the right is from Hot Star. The difference in colour is surprising.

Honestly, I would rather order Redbeef's chicken popcorn again. 

Size

Hot Star's chicken is also bigger which I didn't expect considering big is part of Big G's name. My "measurement" is based on the paper plate we got from Big G.

Overall Assessment

Based on this, I'd eat at Hot Star more, but it seems like there are other Taiwanese-style fried chicken sources I need to try like J&G. Next time! :)

Dinner delivery from RedBeef Noodles Kitchen

 It's an amazing night because I get to eat (devour) salt and pepper (Taiwanese-style) popcorn chicken.

We also ordered noodles which we weren't able to finish. I recommend the popcorn chicken, but not the Spicy Beef Noodle Soup. Meanwhile, the Signature Beef Quartet Noodle Soup is great as always.

I love their Redbeef branded containers. :)

Ordered two serving of Salt and Pepper Popcorn Chicken, Signature Beef Quartet Noodle Soup, and Spicy Beef Noodle Soup
My only regret is not ordering more chicken. 

Spicy Beef Noodle Soup is really spicy.


Do you have any recommendations on where I can get Taiwanese-style fried chicken in Vancouver for delivery?

Lunch delivery from Hi Five Chicken

If you check my recent posts, I have been eating way too many fried chicken. We had some from Church's Chicken earlier into the work-from-home mandate. Then, I ordered some from Juke Fried Chicken to support local restaurants.

Today, we decided to use Uber Eats and order from Hi Five Chicken. It's our first time trying it out and the fried chicken arrived hot, crispy, and juicy. I love it!

We ordered the following:
  • 4-pc regular roasted chicken
  • 4-pc spicy fried chicken
  • 10-pc cheddar cheese munchers
  • 16oz (Large) potato wedges
  • Gravy
We ate a couple of the fried chicken, the munchers, and the potato wedges. The rest of the chicken went to containers and straight to the fridge for reheating tomorrow and possibly even the day after.

Fried Chicken

Munchers and Potato Wedges

I'm ready to eat you chicken thigh. Yummy!


I'm not good at plating and don't want to touch the food because of COVID-19, so sorry for this realistic photo of our lunch.

Happy Saturday!
