Cham Mani

My favourite Korean snack shop is Kimbap Cheonguk on North Road, but unfortunately it’s just a little bit too out of the way for an every day work lunch. Cham Mani isn’t really even second place, but it’s the closest and most convenient from my office, so I find myself here more often than not…

Copa Cafe

What I ate: Spicy Shrimp Paste Soup with Rice Noodle, Chicken Ball and Sausage ($9.95) I had their mixed noodle combo. It was alright, I was really hungry but I still coudn’t finish this. The chicken balls had a really strong soapy flavour and that made the noodles a bit unpalatable overall. Would I come…

Pho Don

I haven’t had Vietnamese food in quite a long time, so I was super happy when S was also craving pho for dinner! I used to go to Pho Don a lot when I worked at Playland, but since I quit years back I haven’t been here in awhile. What we ate: Phở Tái Bò…

Peaceful Restaurant

When I’m craving Shanghai food during work hours I usually end up coming to Peaceful Restaurant. It’s by no means the greatest, in fact one could argue it’s barely average, but beggars can’t be choosers. I came here last week for dinner because it was conveniently between my friend’s office and my office. What we…

Waves

What I drank: Rooibos Latte (~$5.00) I always end up at this Waves because it’s the closest to my office. It’s not the greatest because they seem to have a rotating list of newly hired baristas (which means inconsistent drinks), but my coworker doesn’t like Starbucks so we always come here instead. This time however,…

Cactus Club Cafe

Apologies to my readers for the less than timely blog posts this month! Sometimes real life just catches up, and there isn’t a whole lot I can do about it. It’s not that I have stopped eating out – in fact I’m eating out almost every day, I just don’t have the patience to photograph…

Tap and Barrel – Convention Centre

It’s been a busy past couple weeks at work! So much so that I haven’t had the chance to eat out at all. But today, I was able to break free to go out for lunch to celebrate J and S’s birthdays! Since it was a gorgeous day we went to Tap and Barrel and…

Ramen Danbo

Ramen Danbo specializes in Kyushu Hakata style ramen from Fukuoka. It is one of my favourite types of ramen because the noodles are thinner, and that’s my personal preference when it comes to noodles. I also like the options to customize the firmness of the noodles as well as the options for broth in terms…

Yaletown Brewing Company

A couple friends and I decided to come here for a pre drink before we went clubbing on a Friday night. Our first choice, Earls, was full so we decided to come here instead. This was a bad decision. When we first arrived the hostess indicated that we can just find a seat anywhere. We…
