Samsoonie Noodle & Rice

I always see the gorgeous bossam platter from this restaurant on Instagram, but unfortunately we decided to dine here last minute and we were not able to reserve one. We came around 7:30 pm on a Wednesday night and it was very busy here. They only offer two banchan here (kimchi and beansprouts), so on…

Jejudo

In an attempt to venture out of my comfort zone (not repeat the same restaurants over and over again) I found this Japanese-Korean sashimi restaurant. It’s tucked away on the second floor above Hannam Supermarket on North Road, so don’t make the same mistake I did and wander to sketchy back areas looking for this…

Coffee Monster

Recently I’ve been in a bit of a rut in terms of eating out. I’ve been going to the same places over and over again because of convenience and I haven’t had time to check out some new places. This all changed when I went out with M over the weekend! Not only did I…

The Keg – Yaletown

This is just a quick post because I’ve blogged about The Keg multiple times, and I always get the same thing. What I drank: Dark n’ Stormy – Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, ginger beer, fresh lime juice ($7.50) I prefer the one at Cactus Club a lot more. This version tasted extremely watered down. What…

Happy Lemon

I’m a pretty big fan of the foam/cream top for bubble tea, so I was pretty excited when I found out that Happy Lemon offers Salted Cheese top for their drinks! It’s definitely an acquired taste for some, but I loved it! It was like drinking a cheesecake. What we drank: Green Tea with Salted…

Cherry Galette [Recipe]

Last weekend J and I had a baking date. We made a cherry galette based of a recipe we found on the internet, but made a couple changes, because that’s always a good idea when baking right? INGREDIENTS 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour 1/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) chilled unsalted butter,…

The Rise Eatery

What we drank: Caesar ($10.00), Geisha-rita – sake, lychee, pink lemonade and togarashi ($12.00) and Mojito ($10.00) The last two drinks had fancier names but I can’t remember what they were and they don’t have the bar menu online. The consensus was that the drinks weren’t very good. The Geisha-rita was particularly weird with the togarashi…

Tractor

In an attempt to live a healthier lifestyle, I met with R an H at Tractor on a gorgeous weekend for a lunch date. I hear that Tractor is pretty busy during work days, but when we were there it was pretty quiet. What we ate: 1/2 sandwich Chicken – Grilled chicken breast, arugula, pear,…

Sugar Lab

Sugar Lab is a newly opened Mille Crepe Cake place in Burnaby. It’s a bit out of the way if you don’t drive, but it’s worth the trek out! Tiramisu Mille Crepe Cake ($8.50) This was my favourite dessert of the evening. I liked that the cake wasn’t too sweet and the multiple layers were…

Earls – Yaletown

What we ate: Chicken Tacos ($3.00 each), Vodka Coke ($3.00 each) and Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip ($9.00) I’ve reviewed the Chicken Tacos at length, but this is the first time we got the dip. It was so good! There were a lot of artichoke pieces and the bread that it was served was with…
