When I catch up with Beck, a real foodie, we of course...catch up over food. We had planned for an epic waffle day. It would be a battle of waffles between Miura Waffle Milk Bar vs. Nero Belgian Waffle Bar.
From the last-minute of our rendezvous, we didn't look into the details of the store. We were extremely disappointed to find out Nero is closed on Monday!!! It is a rare occasion Beck has Monday off for us to meet too. I guess it is not meant to be we experienced the highly raved Belgian waffle for us. That was the start of many more disappointments to follow.
Even though we are a world apart, we continue our own culinary adventure separately. Well, more so for Chris trying out different things at England from unique markets to high tea to fine dining. It is i not the same to eat and to write blogs when we are a world apart and only show each other pictures. This is how the blog came to a complete halt.
Good news! With Chris being back, working in downtown, and us eating together more often, we will try to share the experience of the food and our memories associated with. The format probably will be different. It will be short but more frequent posts...I HOPE....but we will see how this goes!
It is kind of nice to be back writing and sharing food!

Sorry about the lack of posts! Queenie and I have been both quite busy; even though we still go out and eat we haven’t really had the time to write the blog posts =S. From now on I’m going to keep the posts shorter so that I get content up sooner!
A little while ago Queenie and I were at Kerrisdale looking for a quick dinner. Wanting to try something new, we came across Fish Cafe in Kerrisdale.
Fish Cafe is relatively small, both inside and out. It wasn’t very busy when we arrived at 6pm but the place quickly filled up.
Prices are a bit on the steep side and the menu is pretty straight forward; essentially fish, appetizers, and salads.
We started with the full order of Calamari [$14.95]. They have the option of grilled or fried. We ordered the deep fried one. We also had it with the tartar sauce.
For $14.95 I was expecting this dish to be larger. The squid was very fresh but it wasn’t as crispy as I hoped. Tartar sauce went quite well with it. Not the best calamari I’ve had but it ranks pretty high up.
For the entre, Queenie and I shared a 2pc order of Fish & Chips [$11.95].
The two pieces of fish were heavily battered but were fried in a way the exterior very light. It’s not a hard crunch you might expect when looking at it. The texture is similar to the chinese-styled donuts “yao lei so”.
The fish on the inside tasted very nice and seemed quite fresh. However, overall the two pieces of fish were quite oily. Queenie couldn’t finish hers b/c of that.
The true delicacy of this meal were the fries. These were some of the best fries I’ve ever had! Very dense on the inside while maintaining just the right amount of crisp on the outside. These huge pieces of fries went very well with both ketchup and tartar sauce.
Pricey but if you’re looking for some fresh seafood w/o travelling too far, Fish Cafe seems like a pretty good place to go.
