Troll's - Horseshoe Bay, BC - Canada

We have been to this location about ten years ago. That was my first visit to Vancouver, BC and surrounding. I didn't quite remember the name of the restaurant. But for whatever reason, the calamari here left me a deep impression. Years passed and every now and then the calamari experience comes and knocks on my head. So finally this year we have enough time on our trip to make a side trip to Horseshoe Bay. To verify whether my memory was accurate and put it to rest.

Red Lobster - San Jose

I got this gift card for Red Lobster from Christmas time that I just came across recently. So I decided to give them a try. We did a take out order from them one night when we were lazy to cook.

Lobster crab and seafood stuffed mushroom
I loved stuffed mushroom so this one promised both items : seafood and stuffed mushroom. It came with like 5-6 stuffed mushrooms. But the stuffing was overflowing so I couldn't taste much of the mushroom. And there was gravy around the mushroom which I assumed works better with the biscuits (parmesan biscuits) provided. The mushrooms were good but the parmesan biscuits were a bit too salty for my taste.

Hon's Wun Tun House - Vancouver, Canada

Big shrimp, bell pepper on top of rice noodle
This place looked like a small take out place. Nothing fancy. But once inside, it's actually a big place with two open kitchens on the back side. And if you're wondering what kind of cuisine they serve, it's a Chinese restaurant. I don't know where they got the name from. It seemed like it supposed to be Hong's because Hon's sounds like it supposed to be Honey.

Anyhow, their menu was quite big. According to our friends who took us there, their wonton soup is worth trying. So hubby picked a combo of wonton with yellow noodle. They provided a list of items on item A and another list of item B. So what you do is just pick each item to make up a combo you like.

The other dishes we ordered were spicy green bean, salt and pepper chicken wings and stir fry rice noodle with sauce.

The wonton looked simple not much green onion for garnish but tasted good. The chicken wings of course was no brainer. It's hard to find chicken wings that are not good. The spicy green bean was crunchy and sweet.

It was a nice fulfilling meal with good companies.
