Munchie Adventure: Flying Beaver Bar & Grill, Richmond

As JC and I made our way towards this place, we started getting worried we were going the wrong way, since it looked like nothing would be over here =O But we eventually found it (after some detours) =D Yay!!

Not wanting to sit at the high table or bar, we waited for a table to be ready. It took about 15 minutes of waiting I think? We were seated and greeted by a friendly waitress who started us with some drinks. JC and JY got coffee, and I got some odd hot water (it was kinda foamy x.x but I survived). Last minute change of mind for ordering items, but I don't regret it =) The food took quite a while to arrive though (probably because they waited for everything to be ready before they brought us the food)

JC likes fried chicken, so a Chicken Fingers ($11.50) was ordered. I thought it was too dry, didn't like it. Sauce made it a  bit better, but really, M&M meats has better chicken strips than them.

I ordered their Blackstone Benny ($9.95), which was a last-minute change =P I saw the description had BACON, and JY recommended their bennies, so I was sold. Eggs were very nicely done, but hashbrowns were too hard and salty, and filoncini bread was too soggy =( Probably because of the tomato sitting on it.

Look at this beautiful creation! =)

JC ordered their Traditional Benny ($9.50), which also had a variation of bacon, looked very similar to mines =O The Canadian back bacon looked good! But good ol' crispy bacon is my fav still =P

Annnnd JY suddenly felt extra hungry when she sat down, and ordered a Pulled Pork Sandwich ($11.50). She also changed the fries to yam fries, which I found were quite tasty. Better than the hash browns. The sandwich itself was lacking though . . . the BBQ sauce was too strong and overwhelmed everything. Coleslaw didn't help much-- it did make it less salty, but not that big of a difference.

This was quite a unique experience, many thanks to JY for bringing us here and treating us ^^ So nice of herrrrr <3 Loved the view, and with the awesome weather-- it was quite memorable =) Maybe this really improved the experience because of the weather hehe SUNSHINEEEE <3
