Sometimes when you surf the net for places to eat, certain dishes keep showing up on many blogs and reviews. This dish is one of those eye-popping dish and it is the lobster (or crab) sticky rice at Ho Yuen Kee Restaurant in Vancouver, BC. So when we went to Vancouver last weekend, we decided to check it out.
We ordered the crab instead of lobster. This was about 2 1/2 lbs of crab. Definitely tastes as good as it looks!
At the bottom of the whole pile of crab is a tray full of yummy sticky rice. It was very tasty but there was way too much corn in the rice. Maybe a little less corn will be better but overall it’s still very good.
We also ordered the wonton and dumpling soup. Very juicy and delicious.
Since it was lunch time, we ordered the lunch portion (smaller portion) of the fried Japanese tofu. This was ok. Nothing special about it.
Overall this meal was a little expensive due to the crab but I will definitely be back again for the crab.
Bento content: Ham and lettuce sandwich, mozarella cheesesticks, chips and pomegranate.
Do you like pomegranate? Do you spit out each individual seed?? I am not a big fan of pomegranate. I like the taste but I am just not quite sure what to do with the seeds. I just find it weird to swallow them and it is just too much work to individually spit them out. C really loves them and she just eats everything including the seeds.
Bento content: Baked farfalle pasta with marinara sauce, chips, carrots and Ranch dip and finally green apples with cinnamon sugar in the small bottle.
Happy Monday!! Hope you all had a great weekend! We had an awesome weekend and it went by too fast! Is it just me or do the weekends really goes by faster as you grow older?? This weekend was definitely as indication that Fall is here. It was cold & rainy most of the time but the sunrise that I saw yesterday morning was just breathtaking! Don’t you agree??
Anyway, today’s bento contains baked pasta. I made a simple farfalle pasta with marinara sauce and place them in my muffin cup, topped with cheese and baked till cheese is melted. This is a great lunch idea when you have leftover spaghetti and they are easily freezable and easy to pack for lunch since it has been frozen individually. I also included some cinnamon sugar with the green apples today. Normally C does not like green apples but with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar, it has now become her favorite.
Bento content: A cutesy banana muffin topped with a kitty-wannabe cheese slice, a couple of extra cheese, ham flowers, apple slices, carrots with dip and a KitKat for dessert.
TGIF! I love Fridays! So it’s a simple & fun bento for today. Do you guys have any plans this weekend? I think we will be heading out to the pumpkin patch this weekend. Hopefully it will not be a wet weekend. Have a good weekend!!
