Lunch delivery from Klasik Inasal and Noodle Express

Happy Tuesday! It's rare for us to have anything delivered on a weekday, but well we have no viand to go with our rice so might as well order Filipino food. Last week, we had Chinese cuisine which goes well with rice, this week it's Filipino food. I have ordered from Klasik Inasal in the past and I ordered three same dishes: Shanghai Roll, Pork BBQ Skewer, and Eggplant Omelette ( Tortang Talong ). 2 orders of Pork BBQ Skewer and I apparently made a mistake and only ordered one serving of deep-fried Shanghai roll Eggplant Omelette (Tortang Talong)   Party Tray I ordered two viand (ulam) so we have something to eat for the rest of the week. Hubby kept saying will two be enough for the rest of the week. He doubts my food budgeting skills lol. I understand his hesitation since the "party tray" we ord

Holiday Cookies and Yule Log Cake from PICA Chef

I thought of ordering from Arts to Bakes or Kaye Bakes for our Christmas Eve dinner desserts, but since it's just hubby and me and we have a small fridge - it won't fit a big cake. I checked PICA's website to see if I can pre-order any of their holiday cake like I did last year. Online shopping for cake led to me buying an Assorted Holiday Cookie Tin, which is more expensive than the cake. Classic Chocolate Espresso Yule Log Classic Chocolate Espresso Yule Log I love the espresso buttercream on the yule log cake. It's so delicious! The size is also perfect for two people, and we'll be able to finish it in a couple to three days. First "layer" of assorted cookies - Linzer, Sable, Crescent, Chocolate Dipped, and Christmas Tree Matcha Cookies All our assorted cookies - Linzer, Sable, Crescent, Chocolate Dipped, and Christmas Tree Matcha Cookies I surprisingly enjoyed all the cookies, even the Linzer! I was so sure I'll dislike the Linzer, but I liked it a

Christmas Lunch Date at Vancouver Fish Co.

Merry Christmas! We're going to pick-up our Yule Log cake from the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts at 1:00 PM. We left our home at 11:30 AM so we can grab lunch at Go Fish. Unfortunately, I think they're closed. I told hubby that we should have lunch at Vancouver Fish Co. We've been here before but never together. When he used to work nearby, his team would almost always have their team lunch here. I've been here maybe twice for work meetings as well. Anyway, today it's just me and hubby celebrating life, love, and all the blessings today (a day before Christmas). We started our meal with drinks and a bowl of soup. A couple iced tea for drinks West Coast Seafood Chowder The first spoonful of the chowder was disappointing, but I like it more as I eat more. As I bite into the different flavou

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 Pho Xe Lua 24

Happy Saturday! We played Pokemon GO for like 30 minutes outside then it started raining. I realized the outside world felt so dirty when it's wet and when you're outside. I like the rain when I'm indoors getting cozy under a blanket. For today, we ordered pho to warm us up. I love the pho from Pho Xe Lua 24 today. I am not crazy about their sides but the delicious soup made everything better. Food from Pho Xe Lua 24 Vietnamese Spring Rolls (2 pcs) Deep-Fried Butter Chicken Wings House Special Noodle Soup Rare Steak and Beef Ball I kinda regret not getting beef stew which has been a staple every time we order from a Vietnamese restaurant and my basis of good Vietnamese place. Oh well. Today is pho kind of day.

Surprised Steamed Buns from Bao Bakery

My parents, siblings, and I have a group chat. My sister just sent a menu of Chinese restaurants where they're going to order for their Christmas evening dinner. I responded with "Gusto ko ng siopao" (I want siopao). Siopao is what we Filipino calls a pork (or chicken) steamed buns. My mom called so early in the morning asking if we want it. They'll drive all the way to Joyce Street (East Side of Vancouver) from Richmond and bring us a box of siopao (we're West Side of Vancouver). I have been craving it for months now and I can't believe it's here! Bao Bakery have delicious, freshly made steamed buns.  Siopao, literally meaning "hot bun", is the Philippine cuisine indigenized version of the Cantonese steamed bun called cha siu bao. - Wikipedia When I was younger, I love and would only eat asado siopao, but now I only eat bola-bola and find the asado too sweet. I am growing old!  Half dozen of Chicken Deluxe (Bola-Bola) Steamed Buns Bao Bakery Yay

Lunch at Suika

Suika is my favourite restaurant in Vancouver and primarily because of the Signature Beef Curry with Tonkatsu. It's the best one I have tried in the city. Today is probably the last time we're going to have lunch there for the year. We do our best to eat at Suika once a month, that's how much I love their food.
