The latter main course dish ordered was Snow Pea Shoots with Garlic. For whatever reason I've only seen snow pea shoots used in Chinese cuisine, but, regardless, they make for another good vegetable source. Only the shoots should be used, as the mature pea vines would be very tough. Stir-frying these vegetables with garlic creates a simple yet tasty, refreshing and, so long as the use of oil is minimal, healthy.

So ended my last dinner of my July 2011 Vancouver trip. I felt fortunate to have tried a whole range of foods and cuisines, even though it was just a small dent to the Vancouver food scene. I definitely look forward to the next time I can return to Vancouver and explore even more sights, foods and drinks. That reminds me... I still have one more Vancouver-trip-related entry, as there were other little bits and bites I've tried that I realize are worth sharing. Stay tuned!
