Peaceful has two restaurant locations in
I visited the Vancouver
I am here because of the “buzz”: Van Mags things to eat 2011 – Thousand Chilli Chicken.
And also a few months ago Guy Fieri from Food Networks Diners Drive-ins and Dives visited
and Peaceful was one of the restaurants he visited. I don’t know what he ate? The show will view in the New Year. Vancouver
First impressions; Peaceful is a nice no frills family restaurant. The kitchen is open so that you can view the chefs pull handmade paste. I love that. If you’ve never had fresh pasta this way go quickly, there is nothing better on a cold wet
day then fresh pulled home-made pasta in broth. Vancouver

Today I am here for the Thousand Chilli Chicken. But crap it’s not on the lunch menu. I asked for it anyway and I had a slight language problem with the server. I got a bit flustered, had to order by number off the menu, had chicken on the mind and ended up ordering General Tsao’s Chicken instead.
It was pretty good; the chicken was supper tender, the sauce was sweat and yet a bit on the salty side. The broccoli had a fantastic pineapplely flavour. But damn it, it wasn’t the thousand chilli chicken. And just to rub it, I was sitting at the window counter and smack in front of my face was the takeout menu with Item C1: Thousand Chilli Chicken staring me right in the face.

Peaceful Beef Rolls: Five Spice beef in crispy green onion flat bread and sweat hiosin sauce. Good finger food. This is all about the sweet hiosin sauce for me, tastily but I found the flatbread a bit greasy. Still an OK dish.

I can see why Triple D came around. The restaurant is nice family run type of joint, you get a nice show from the pulled pasta and the food is pretty good.
But me, I’m just going to obsess about not having the Thousand Chilli Chicken.
I'll be back!
