The DownLow Chicken Shack

As a food blogger, I have a pretty open mind when it comes to food and what I am willing to eat. My philosophy is to always try something if it is being offered to me. That being said, I grew up not really liking fried foods and as an adult I rarely eat deep…

SEOUL TRAVEL GUIDE – PART I

As most of my friends know, I’m a huge fan of Korean culture because throughout my university years some of my nearest and dearest friends were Korean. The last time I was in Seoul was back in 2013, so I was really excited to visit again last December. I was only there for six days,…

Passion Tearoom

Passion Tearoom is a cute family run bubble tea joint located in Downtown Vancouver. All of their drinks use only fresh fruits and and freshly brewed tea. None of their drinks use flavored syrups or powdered milk which is rare to find these days! I was recently invited to check them out, and I really…

Sooda Korean BBQ

Sooda Korean BBQ is best known for their “Sooda Box” a 46 cm sushi creation made with premium Korean beef. After seeing so many pictures on IG, I had to drag my friend W to check it out. We went on a weekend at prime dinner time and we managed to snag one of the…

Milkcow Cafe

Milkcow Cafe has been making waves on social media with their IG worthy desserts. After a filling lunch at Sura, Q and I decided to drop by and check this cute cafe out. When we first arrived the entire cafe was full, but by the time we left about an hour later the cafe was…

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…

Soft Peaks

I was kindly invited by Trudy, to try the new Frissant Ice Cream Sandwich at Soft Peaks Ice Cream in Burnaby. The store interior is very spacious with lots of natural light. The Burnaby location has to be at least double the size of their Gastown counterpart. What we drank: Iced Caffè mocha ($4.50) The…

Kerrisdale Nakamura

I’m a big fan of dessert first (and after!) dinner, so after our afternoon treat at Nana’s Green Tea we headed over to Ajisai for dinner. Unfortunately for us, the wait was over an hour, so we did a quick search on Yelp and ended up at Nakamura. Nakamura is a small restaurant with seating for…

Nana’s Green Tea

Nana’s Green Tea has been on my to-go list of places to eat in Japan for as long as I can remember, but I have never had the chance to go. I was extremely happy when I found out that they were opening their first North American branch in Vancouver! I’m not one for queues,…
