Dimsum at Rainflower Restaurant (粵之醉海鮮酒家)in Richmond

This morning we decided to head down to Richmond to have some dimsum before dropping a relative off at the airport.  As we headed out fairly early we were not overly concerned that we would have trouble finding a table.  Richmond has an abundance of dimsum eateries and we generally make a habit of trying a different restaurant each time.

From the outside the restaurant looks kinda dingy and run down and being right by the Skytrain tracks the building is partially blocked by a pillar.

Lunch at Nimby Burger in Kitsilano

After reading about Nimby Burger in last summer's Georgia Straight where it was rated one of the better burger joints in Vancouver we decided to give it a go at lunch, after reading reviews where Nimby Burger is compared to In-N-Out Burger and also the fact that they are only open during the summer we decided to give it a go.  Our usual lunchtime burger place is Fatburger or Vera's.

 Located at the corner of Cornwall and Yew it was a tiny almost "drive-thru" type eatery where there was not a whole lot in the way of available seating.  Thankfully the beach is right across the street and with the nice warm and being a weekday we can overlook this minor annoyance.

Blueberry Cookies

Seeing as blueberry season is finally upon us today was most definitely a baking day.  After several trips to the Gourmet Warehouse to get items (more on that later) I finally got around to baking some cookies.  Having tried a cookie from Momofuku Milk Bar in New York (thank you Elaine) and by luck stumbling across one the cookie recipes I decided to give it a shot.

The cookie I would be attempting, and attempting being the key word is a blueberry cookie with milk crumbs, ok first question WTF are milk crumbs.....
