Frenchies’ Classic Poutine

Oct 10, Monday – Sunny

It was Thanksgiving Day morning and I had a hair appointment in the area. Since a coworker from Quebec told me that he likes the poutine from Frenchies’ Diner, I went in for a quick bite.

The owner was very friendly, the door was open but the diner wasn’t officially open yet (it was before noon). He told me that he was bored from staying home so he decided to open the restaurant and get some cooking done.

Little Nest – brunch for the adults

After a visit to the Trout Lake Farmers Market, I met up with G at Little Nest near Commercial Drive for brunch. It’s relatively close to the market by bus. Since I arrived a bit early, I order my very much-needed morning coffee and grabbed a seat first.

It was back in August and I need something cold after my walk from the market with my heavy grocery basket. I ordered an Ice Americano. I really love that they use the letter blocks to track their orders. “S” was my first letter.

Nu – Groupon solo lunch

I got a Groupon for a 4 courses Summer Lunch at Nu and it was about to expire. By that time, a few of my friends who got the coupon had already used them. So I decided to do a solo lunch by myself; i.e. a date with myself.

Since all the outdoor tables had been taken, I was quickly sat near the patio and presented the menu below.

It looked alright. I ordered a glass of Blue Mountain Pinot Blanc. Afterall, a date isn’t a date without a little wine. 🙂

It took a while for the food to come, so I enjoyed myself by slowly sipping my glass of wine and enjoying the summer breeze. The view wasn’t bad at all.
