Brunch at Two Chefs and a Table

Feb 12 Saturday – Rainy

Can’t believe it had been almost 4 months since my last visit to Two Chefs and A Table for brunch. It was a relaxing meal with S just for catching up…etc. 🙂 I visited their butcher shop first and wanted to try their brunch because they use house made sausages, ham (from their butcher shop) and house baked english muffins! The restaurant was full when we arrived but we only had a short wait before we got seated. The tables were pretty close to each other and there is a bigger communal table. I liked the retro decors.

The Apron – DOV 2011

February 1, 2011

It’s been a while since my visit at The Apron but I still remember the tender lamb and the fun rose water honey bubbles I had that night. It’s my last DOV 2011 dinner and I invited C to join me.

Upon arrival, the menu was brought to us and drinks were quickly served. We picked almost the same items from the menu except dessert.

Dai Jang Kum

February 6, Saturday – rainy

We needed a quick dinner in Richmond. I went to Dai Jang Kum with my coworkers once for lunch, and it was not bad. So I decided to try it out for dinner.

We ordered the BBQ beef short rib with special fruit marinate, Bibimbap and Potato and pork bone soup. Since this was a quick dinner, I won’t describe each dish in detail.

The BBQ beef short ribs were not bad. The waitress actually helped us to put it on the grill and cut them into smaller pieces. The marinate was sweet and savory.

Big Lou’s Butcher Shop

February 6, Sunday – rainy

I visited a new butcher shop, Big Lou’s Butcher Shop, in Chinatown/Gastown area on my way to the Barking Mad event held in West Vancouver back in February. Parking was easy with not too pricy meter right next to the shop. It’s actually right across from the Sunrise market on Powell Street.
I needed some ground beef to make chili for dinner that night. So I asked for 2 lb of their AAA ground beef. I think the price is pretty good $7.70 for 2 lb. I ended up only using a little over 1 lb for the chili and I made Chinese steam beef patty with pickled vegetable with the rest for another meat.

I got some ground beef to make chili at home. It's way better than those I got from regular supermarket and I think the price is reasonable

Nicli Antica Pizzeria

February 20, Sunday – clear

My friend found out about this new Pizzeria in Gastown and invited me, D and G to try it out together. Never say no to good pizza and the report from Scout Magazine sounded very promising. So we met there at 5:30 p.m. to make sure that we got a table. The restaurant was busy but not yet full. The decor was clean lined, modern and tasteful.

Their cocktails looked interesting on the menu with many of them infused with herbs. I had the Mighty Poosh and F had the Great Thyming.  D ordered a Bohemian Lager from R&B brewery.
