Beijiang Restaurant

I was invited by Emily to try out this restaurant, as such, all food was complimentary. Unless someone told me about this place and insisted I come here, I probably would never have found or had an inclination to come to this place. It’s honestly not the type of food I prefer and I have…

Ramen Koika

I first went to Ramen Koika when they opened in 2014 and I remember not being very impressed with their ramen, so I haven’t made the trip back in recent years. However, I was in the area and I was craving some ramen so I decided to see if they have improved in the past…

Hawker’s Delight Deli

I am someone who goes through food phases. I will be obsessed with a dish for a month or two and I will look for it everywhere. One of these obsessions was Laksa. A good friend of mine from Malaysia raved about the Laksa here so of course I had to check it out! What…

John 3:16 Malaysian Delights

I checked out this restaurant when they were still located in Richmond (so this is a major throwback post). They are now located in North Vancouver, and I haven’t had a chance to visit them in their new location, but I plan on doing so soon! What I ate: Kari Laksa – curry soup with…

Belachan Kitchen

I always walk past this restaurant when I’m on my way to Zara, so when H and I were deciding where to go for lunch I suggested we check this place out. Their lunch specials are a really good deal! If my office was closer I would definitely come more often. What we ate: Curry…

#KDIDDYATHOME (Private Dinner with Kevin Lin)

When Emily invited me to try out a private dinner hosted by Chef Kevin Lin, I knew I couldn’t say no. To book your own amazing dinner contact Kevin on Instagram! What I ate: Chilled Green Tea Soba Noodles, sesame-yuzu dressing, spot prawns, ikura and frisee I could eat this for the rest of my…

Trafiq

After my girl’s date with R got crashed, we decided to ditch the boys and head for a coffee break at Trafiq. I’ve never been here, but I’ve only heard good things, so I was more than down to check it out. It was a gorgeous sunny day so the bakery wasn’t too busy (because…

Cafe de l’Orangerie

After a long day shopping at Tsawwassen Mills we went here for some good old Yoshoku (Japanese-Western) cuisine. This Cafe used to be one of my favourites and I would be here at least once a week (before they moved to this location). I haven’t been back in a very long time, so I was…

Hainanese Chicken House

One of these days I’m pretty sure that the Bubble Waffle Cafe brand will take over the world. They are slowly but surely opening up multiple different restaurants all across the Lower Mainland. Even though this place doesn’t have the Bubble Waffle Cafe name, everything but that main signage is branded with the Bubble Waffle…

Long’s Noodle House

I had a long overdue lunch date with my mum today! This little hole in the wall is ultra popular and busy! We showed up three minutes after opening and the restaurant was already full! We had to share a table with three other pairs. Since my mum and I aren’t huge eaters, we only…
