Overall, good food in a great area, but the space is a bit tight.  The decor is trendy.  Parking is scarce as it is located in Yaletown, but there is paid parking just across the street.

Different colours & sizes of chocolate designs are available.

It was quite late when we got there, about 45 min before closing, so the goodies were almost gone.

This is one of my favourites – Passion Fruit cake.

I think this is called Dark Chocolate Gateux.

Holiday Traditions

At work, we have this tradition of celebrating Christmas and the holiday by having a Christmas Potluck/Gift Exchange.

The gifts are themselves more important than the reason we are doing this. We set the gift amount to a mere $20, as this should be more of a celebration of another safe and well year completed, in addition to welcoming next year. Nonetheless, people do not seem to be putting a lot of thoughts in the gifts. Out of the 23 available gifts, five were Baileys. Yes, Baileys. 20% of the gifts are in the form of liqueor.

There was more food than shown, but because there were 20+ people against one sole photographer, there was no contest.

What’s your holiday tradition – at work and/or at home?

Chop Steakhouse, Richmond on Saturday

Chop, chop, chop.

This past Saturday, I had a chance to be with my parents and my sisters for a rare old-time family dinner at Chop Steakhouse & Bar in Richmond.

Great atmosphere, and the food was great.  I think the last time I dined at a restaurant was about two years ago, a very long time indeed.

I had the Experience dinner set, which came with a choice of two kinds of salad or two kinds of soup, a choice of sides, and a main entrée.  I chose the fries and top sirloin, and I had the seafood chowder soup.

City Market in North Vancouver

image

在家附近開了一家叫City Market的超市,是加拿大公司Loblaws的。趕上了今天(其實是昨天星期五)的正式開幕,便和老婆女兒去晃ㄧ晃。

這是。。。我也不知是什麼,但還是不錯吃,店員解釋這是用小麥跟少許的碎粉圓製成,吃起來就像是米果的感覺。
