Bon Crepe

This little place is located inside Konbiniya, aka: the store on Robson with the giant Pocky box.

#26: Green Tea Ice Cream, Red Bean and Whip topping. Good texture to the thin style crepe, toppings were good but rather messy to eat, though I guess that's part of the enjoyment.

Lin's Chinese Cuisine and Tea House

Here goes, my first and hopefully not last post for this blog.

Lin's Chinese Cuisine and Tea House

1537 West Broadway (A little bit west of Granville and Broadway)

Vancouver, BC V6J 1W6

I had been wanting to try some proper xiaolongbao for a while, so we took a rather long (and stuffy) bus ride to Lin's based on all the positive buzz surrounding the place. We were slow to be seated, but that was expected due our timing. The inside of restaurant is relatively roomy, with a rather odd not quite peach, not quite orange coat of paint over the walls. The word that comes to mind is "salmon".

One of the first things that we noticed was the funky tableware being used. I guess I'm not used to eating at places that stray from conventional white plates and teapots.

Food service was slow, but again, expected because we came during odd hours. First up were some potstickers. I didn't get to snap a picture before my dining companions dug in, but there were 6 in total. At $4.99, they definitely aren't the cheapest, but I was glad that they weren't the frozen generic variety that every place seems to carry. They were good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

My friend took advantage of their $2 bubbletea special and ordered mango. His verdict is that it's okay, but not great. No picture of that unfortunately. (Edit: Actually, a bit of it is visible in the first picture)
