La Taqueria

I always go through phases where I will be obsessed with a certain food or dish. Earlier this year it was Eggs Benedict, and then soft serve. My latest food obsession is – Tacos! Where better than La Taqueria to satisfy my cravings? They have six locations (five in Vancouver and one in Victoria). La…

Cafe SoBahn

I recently had the chance to check out the newly opened Cafe SoBahn in Coquitlam. Cafe SoBahn is a cute little Korean restaurant that serves up homestyle Korean cooking. Their menu is quite limited, but the restaurant itself is on the smaller side so that is to be expected. What we ate: SoBahn Weekly Special…

The Burnaby location has to be at least double the size of their Gastown counterpart. What we drank: Iced Caffè mocha ($4.50) The…

Trattoria Burnaby is located across from Crystal Mall in Burnaby. They have a medium sized patio for sunny…

Minami Restaurant

Last week I had a craving for aburi, but didn’t have the foresight to make a reservation, so we ended up making our way to Yaletown…
