Wings, Benkei, Home made dinner...

I am back!   I haven't been eating out much or cooking at home (what have I been eating??) and when I do eat out, I always leave my camera at home so I haven't been updating often :(..  This post is just going to be a lot of things together.. and not much of a review..

So, Benkei first!

I took pictures of different ramen flavours this time



Made with rich chicken and pork soup

Mmmm Brunch

I went for brunch at Hub Restaurant and Lounge(right beside Yaletown Roundhouse station) on Sunday morning with a friend.  Brunch is only served on weekends and holidays until 2pm. I personally love brunch but it's SO hard to motivate myself to wake up early on weekends.. but I made it!!

The weather was nice so we sat out on the patio. 

I ordered

shrimp and crab benny - poached eggs, toasted crumpet, hollandaise, roasted potatoes  $13

I loved the tiny glass of orange juice. I wish I could get this kind of meal delivered to my bed every morning...XD

A couple of things that could've been better were the overly soggy crumpet and the slightly overcooked egg.

Pigging out on a Saturday night

On Saturday, I decided to make a simple brunch after volunteering.

 Just bacon, scambled eggs and strawberries

On Saturday night, I had dinner with my friends from International Business Language group 2009-2010 at Joey on Burrad and Broadway.  I haven't seen them for awhile so it was good to see how they were doing and what their plans for the future.

I've been to Joey before and I liked all the food that I've ordered but there is nothing too special about the restaurant. (It reminds me of Cactus club and Milestone)

Panang Shrimp Curry bowl

stir-fried with vegetables in a red coconut curry cream with thai basil and peanuts. $17.49

Seriously... the lettuce on top of the rice tower looks like kimchi..XD
 This dish was decent but personally it wasn't worth the money..

BC Halibut & Prawn Spaghetti 
with tomato, Kalamata olive and fresh basil $19.99
