Jules French Bistro is French restaurant in Gastown which is a national historic site in Vancouver. French food is more delicious than you think. The atmosphere is totally cozy and the decorate wall is old-fashioned and magnificent. The service is pretty well-done and friendly; nevertheless, I understand the waitress/waiters don’t get used to communicating with Deaf people who order exact food. But they have some patience to do their best.
After work, my friends and I took a walk to Jules French Bistro with two visitors from the Philippines. We ordered food. After ordering, French breads and butters were provided with no charge. I didn’t order an appetizer and dessert. I didn’t want to be full if my main dish I ordered was huge. It was just a good idea that I ate French bread. It was relaxing for me and I spent more time to have a conversation.
I wish I could have more food pictures but I got a lot of distractions – staring at food and busy conversation. haha
I ordered Ribeye steak with French fries and mushroom sauce. It’s so flawless!
Matsuri is the Japanese word for a festival or holiday. In fact, there are a ton of events in Japan. My Japanese friend explained about his experiences.
I missed a huge event in Downtown Vancouver, so there was another one in Nikkei Matsuri in Burnaby. They usually hold the event in the last week of August. I have never been in Japanese festival in my life. I always wanted to see as there are a lot of interesting things.
My friends and I went to Nikkei Matsuri after a church. It’s just two blocks away from there. Some food and stuff I haven’t seen are cool. I wish I could take more photos, yet I got distracted by a performance and crowd. haha
Okonomiyaki is so delicious! It is a savoury pancake containing a variety of ingredients.
Takosen is also good. There are takoyaki balls squashed onto a cracker (senbei).
For the first time, I played Japanese games – water balloon and ball scoop (instead of fish).
I picked a balloon, using a piece of tissue paper attached to a paperclip hook. But the paper will break easily when it’s wet. I got one balloon! The paper broke after I tried to get second one. Then, the ball scoop is next. I scooped rubber balls with a thin paper scoop and put them in a bowl. I broke the scoop a few times because I was excited and moved so fast! The volunteers suggested me to scoop slowly. haha! This was so much fun!
Next year, I will visit the huge event If I can or I would miss it.
During sunny day, I headed to Burrard Skytrain Station to meet my buddy, Carlo after work. At Robson St. and Bute St., we tried to find a store which it sells macaron. However, it’s not found. We decided to go to Mongolian restaurant instead. I haven’t been in this restaurant yet.
I don’t declare the name of this restaurant. I understand there are many Mongolian restaurants in the Lower mainland, British Columbia.
At first, I ordered a group of salad, main dish, and soup. I went to grab a small plate for salad, picked stuff, and put the plate on our table.Then, coming back to here. Grabbing a big plate and picking what you like to eat.
Oh, is it full for me? No, you will see the last picture.
It’s lucky for me. This dish fits the size of my stomach. haha!
