Food Crawl Stop #2 – CHAU Veggie Express

I have to admit that I’m not a veggie lover, and most of the time, I think I’m “allergic” to vegetables! But I really like our second food crawl stop – CHAU Veggie Express.

CHAU Veggie Express is a self-served restaurant, where you order at the counter and seat wherever you find comfortable. Since it is called “Express”, the food comes out fairly quick, so customer turnover rates are fairly high. We ordered four items to share.

Mon Paris Patisserie

Recently, there are a lot of new cafes and dessert places opened in Burnaby, and one of my favorite would be Mon Paris Patisserie. It has a very classy and simple interior design. As soon as you step in the store, you can smell the aroma of chocolate. The pastries and sweets are displayed beautifully, and what always caught my attention are the bonbons!
