a whole new mall (for me)

spicy tuna and bc roll
from: Sushi Cafe (sinclair centre)
price: just under $6
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comments: not bad sushi. considering that it was already ready when I ordered it, and that it came from this odd little place (see image below). and click the pic to see the bad thing about daylight savings... it's already dark when I walk home now :(

that's the sushi cafe in sinclair centre. weird, huh? now click to see kylee imitating a friend of hers in said mall.

food court exploration

super chicken burritto
from: padre taco (in the Bentall Centre)
price: $7?
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comments: today I went to lunch with john wu and tommy canyouhearme. i realized that there's a whole network of food courts under downtown. the bentall centre, royal centre, sinclair centre, pacific centre, harbour centre, etc. my question about all this? which one is actually the centre? oh well, food was good. but in other news, dirty friday played the picadilly pub. it was rockin and stuff.

and john had:

not super chicken burritto
comments: I think the difference in the super and the not super, is that they charge 50 cents more and smear some beans in it. now click to see wuuuu proudly holding the coke blak that he got in a free promotion as he stands in front of his office building. no, he doesn't own it. erwin tang does.

and tommy had:

tuna sandwich
from: the place next to padre taco
comments: we ate in the strange little quiet lunch room just inside the burrard skytrain entrance of the bentall centre. oddly quiet in there. like a library. strange room. click to see tommy mystically gliding through it.

erwin tang in the hizouse!

'works' burger
from: the Lion's Pub (near canada place)
price: way too much
rating: &&&/&&&&&
comments: today I met erwin for lunch. we went to a pub that was very close to his EA worky place. the burger I had was tasty, indeed, however, the service was poor, the prices were high, the bun was way too small for what they put in the burger, and the stella only came in small glasses. otherwise I had a good time hangin' with erwin and talking about how much we both love working. click the pic to see the old guy I saw sweeping on main street this morn.

and erwin had

pannini and yam fries.
comments: I didn't get a review from erwin, perhaps he'll review it in the comments. overall, I think we'd both agree that this pub is only comme-çi-comme-ça. nothing special. and too much money. next time, I think we're going to the food court. click to see erwin in front of his office building. yeah, his building. he bought it the other day.

a new friend.

3 items: sesame chicken, sweet n sour pork & rice noodles
from: Amazing Wok (harbour centre food court)
price: $5.99
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comments: again, this food was on par with the village. but for about a dollar more. and for this place "3 items" means rice or noodles is one of the items. I don't like that. today I ate lunch at canada place. so instead of seeing it from the office's kitchen window, I saw the office's kitchen window from where I ate. from wence I ate?

and my new friend had:

some of my noodles
from: my lunch
rating: &&&&&/&&&&&
comments: I think he would have eaten anything. just gobbles it right up. well, this little guy kept me company while I ate my lunch. nice guy. pretty jumpy, though. and here's a bonus picture of the space car I got a ride in this morning. they call it...

I can't take the village with me? no? can I not? bah

time for curry

butter chicken and (yoghurt?) pakora curries
from: Curry Express (in harbour centre food court)
price: $6.99+tax
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: does this curry compare to curry point? yes. although, it costs a dollar more. and the butter chicken is not as creamy. but the spiciness of it makes it really good. the pakoras are better, and the naan was too. overall, yum. and in the linked pic is the view from the kitchen of my office.

fabulous film fest fun

spinach, feta and egg crepe
from: crepe cafe (on granville)
price: $8
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comments: more film fest films today. we saw a really cool korean monster movie called "the host". well worth checking out. we also so another good one called No Mercy for the Rude. It was really good, too. and my favourite thing about the film fest is how people who made the movie are often at the screenings and talking about it. it's kinda like DVD extras. and this movie was no exception, click to see the writer/director and his translator talking about the film.

and norm had:

some kinda omlette
from: cafe crepe
rating: &&&.5/&&&&&
comments: we ran into norm at the first movie we saw. then he joined us for lunch and we joined him for another movie. fun. click to see norm (and the director from the movie behind him)

seafood pancake
from: the korean food court at "H-mart" (seymour and robson)
price: $10
rating: &&&&/&&&&&
comments: delicious food at this food court. if you're near Robson & Seymour, try it. it's upstairs in the H-Mart grocery store. kind of pricey for a food court, but restaurant-quality food. yum.

and erin had:

spicy tofu soup
from: see above
comments: this workless week has allowed me to see many a film fest film. and eat food downtown. and ride the bus. what adventures. click the pic to see that fall has set in. mad props to anyone (other than erin) who can tell what street it is.
