Posts Tagged ‘Coquitlam Centre’

Recently my family and I discovered a new spot for Korean food near Coquitlam Centre – Jeong Ga Nae, located in the strip mall facing Glen Drive. We’ve been there a few times and tried a number of dishes. Here I’m highlighting what we’ve liked.

I’m sucker for Korean tofu soup; it’s one of the few things I crave on a cold winter day, or simply my go-to dish at a Korean restaurant. At Jeong Ga Nae, you can order your Spicy Soft Tofu Soup with just kimchi (i.e. vegetarian), pork, beef or seafood. The broth was flavourful, and at the right spicy level, making me sweat and sniffle just a little bit without embarrassing myself and/or my dining companions. Without prompting, I usually ask for a medium, but I never knew if you could actually control the spicy level haha. I’ve had beef and seafood, and they were both very good. I do prefer the beef version, though, because the meat makes it richer and more satisfying. The seafood one was relatively lighter in flavour. This was the standard portion size, with a cracked egg and lots of veggies in the soup.

Another one of my favourites there is the Potato and Pork Bone Soup. This dish sometimes serves two or more people, but this was an individual serving, and it arrived bubbling hot (as were other soups!).

Despite the size, there was no shortage of pork bone pieces in this soup. (more…)

You all probably don’t know, but I actually live in the Tri-cities area. A girl in the suburb who dreams about living a life in the urban centre. haha. My posts usually focus on Vancouver but from time to time I might discover gems in my ‘hood. So the other day, Mr. and I checked out Crepe Delicious at Coquitlam Centre. I’ve walked by the store numerous times, but apparently they’ve been around for almost 2 years. No idea why it took me this long to give them a try!

Food

The concept is pretty simple: crepes, savoury and sweet crepes. They also serve panini sandwiches but that only takes up a tiny corner of its menu.

We tried two savoury crepes and one sweet crepe. First up, the Garden Ham. It was pretty interesting because we saw how the staff cracked the egg on the crepe, so as she folded it, the cooked egg would be sandwiched between the crepe layers.

Frankly neither of the savoury crepes looks interesting on the outside, so let’s hope the filling tastes good.

It was not bad, but to me, I found it rather light. (more…)
