Wang's Shanghai Cuisine 上海点心店

Since the night before, we have already decided where to go for lunch after BabyE's haircut.  Our previous visit to Wang's Shanghai Cuisine 上海点心店 was quite enjoyable and we wanted to return to try a few more items on the menu.
(Click here for the blog post of our previous visit.)

We arrived approximately twenty-minutes after the restaurant opened at 11am and the place was packed.  Luckily, with a baby in the group, we didn't have to wait long and got the most ideal corner table that could accommodate a car seat comfortably.

Chez Buddha - Sashimi Night

Months ago, Mr. Skipper showered us with some sashimi-grade otoro of Southern Bluefin Tuna (Thunnus maccoyii) and the eyes of Bigeye Tuna (Thunnus obesus).  But, because I had a bun in the oven, I was unable to eat anything raw.  After months of waiting (and whining), the bun was finally out of the oven and I am now ready for some quality sashimi.

This time, Mr. Skipper came to Vancouver for business on a very short notice.  And, as always, he brought us lots of goodies.  Since Mr. Skipper was in town, it made sense to invite him over for dinner so he could prep and serve the sashimi for us.  Yes, our "invited" guest had to do the work...

We also asked MomJ and her friend, AuntieBo, to join us for dinner so we could cut up more maguro loins.

Garlic & Chili Restaurant 蓬萊川魯菜館

Located in a strip mall hidden one block northeast of Lougheed Highway at Holdom Avenue, Garlic & Chili Restaurant 蓬萊川魯菜館 is a ma-and-pa shop that serves homey Chinese dishes that will satisfy your simple cravings.

Since I work nearby (less than a two-minute drive), I was a bit shocked that this place never made an appearance on our blog.  My apologies.

Off The Grid Waffles

It's been a while since our last post.  With a new focus in life, our blog has dropped to the very bottom of our to-do list.  There were moments where I attempted to sit in front of a PC and type, however, things never went as planned.

That being said, I have been vividly posting photos of our eats on Instagram, and, if I remember, on Twitter and Facebook as well.  After all, posting photos from a smartphone is much easier (and faster) than typing a blog post on a PC.
