Thai Escape


I have never been to Thailand but I do love Thai food.  At least I love what I have been exposed to here locally in 604 or in Taiwan.  When my brother told me about this little Thai restaurant that his friends have been raving about, it piqued my interest.  Since it was another lazy Friday evening, Buddha Boy made the executive decision to pay it a visit.

Yu Xiang Yuan Restaurant 豫湘園


Not knowing what to have for dinner, Buddha Boy suggested a noodle shop that has been blogged recently on Sherman's Food Adventures.  Hey, we drove by that restaurant many times and kept telling ourselves to try.  Okay, I guess it's time.

Strike 破店 (Richmond)


Our first visit to Strike 破店 in Richmond was approximately a year ago, when it first opened.  At that time, while the food was satisfying, service was disappointing.  After voicing my concerns with the owner, I noted that I don't know when I'd return.  I couldn't justify putting up with garbage service for satisfactory food.

Sunny Spot Cafe 張記凉皮肉夾饃


Jujube's shared post on facebook reminded me of this ma-n-pa shop on Main Street near Broadway in Vancouver.  My first encounter with their food was years ago at the Richmond Night Market.  Back then, we enjoyed the so-called "Chinese hamburger" and the cold noodles.  Hoping to experience the delicious dishes again, I gathered up DadT, Elaine and Jujube to join me for lunch.  Originally, Mr. Little Lee and Buddha Boy had a golf date and were not forecasting a lunch with us.  But the boys finished early and were able to make it in time.  More people = more food.

PiDGin


Looking forward to our wedding anniversary, we booked Tableau Bar Bistro for a Friday evening after I gave kudos to their pork belly special.  Unfortunately, the menu changed and they've replaced the special with stuff that doesn't really appeal to us.

As a last minute change, we booked for PiDGin.  A suggestion from Little Lee who visited a week prior and raved about the prix-fixe menu
