A few nights ago, I suddenly craved for skewers, so Mr. and I decided to go Happy Tree House BBQ to satisfy my cravings. I often go to the Kingsway location, because it is closer to my house and is more spacious. For anyone who doesn’t know about Happy Tree House BBQ, it specializes in Chinese-style skewers and grilled fish. It has two locations – Kingsway and Richmond, and they are some of the few restaurants in Vancouver that open until late at night. I usually come here for skewers, but there is this one dish that I must order whenever I am here. Read until the end to learn more about this dish.
