Since both of us have never been there before, originally, Buddha Boy wanted to take me to Cheesecake Factory for dinner on our first night in Bellevue. But after we carefully "studied" the menu, there's really not much I could eat due to my dietary restrictions. Buddha Boy started looking online for alternatives and we ended up at Dough Zone Dumpling House 麵貼面 for some xiao-long-bao.

I've always wanted to try Chick-fil-A. So, hungry or not, I actually planned a snack.
Since this was only a "snack" and our planned dinner was only a couple of hours away, I ordered items that weren't burgers or anything too heavy: tenders, nuggets, fries.
Making an overnight trip into the States, it's my job to find the snacks. Avoiding the typical fast food joints, I searched for something different, something we couldn't find at home. Sandwich House Tres was one of such find. Situated in a nondescript plaza somewhere in Bellevue, this mom-and-pop place makes its own fresh bread for its Japanese sandwiches.

On our way to run some errands in Coquitlam, we decided to drop by Spring Garden Chinese Seafood Restaurant 綠茵閣海鮮酒家 in New Westminster for some dim sum fix. Years ago, we were first introduced by Anton of Fraser Park Restaurant about this little hidden gem in New Westminster. Funny how we have been visiting this ma-n'-pa restaurant frequently but never blogged about it. Well, it's never too late to share...I think...

Whenever Buddha Boy is under the weather, we'd go for nothing but pho. But because of my diet restrictions lately, after my medical exams, Buddha Boy suggested to try the mix & match soup noodle combos at Boston Restaurant 波士頓餐廳 on Victoria Drive. Yes, two visits in one week...

Since the night before, Buddha Boy and I have been thinking about where to eat after my doctor's appointment this morning. After process of elimination, we narrowed the decision down to HK-style cafes (aka. tea cafes 茶餐廳). Now the question is...where? Buddha Boy's favorite - Silver Tower 銀座 in Richmond? Or my favorite - Gold Stone 金石 in Chinatown?
