ColourSeeSee – 上海本色

Shanghai food is one of my favourite cuisines in the world. It is one of the only things I will wake up early for. I’m always on the hunt for new Shanghainese places, so it was bittersweet for me when I saw that a Shanghai restaurant had taken over Satomi Sushi on Kingsway. As my…

Jin Jiang Shanghai Restaurant

I adore Shanghai food and I’m so lucky that Vancouver has some really great Shanghainese  restaurants. My ride or die Shanghai restaurant will always be Shanghai Wonderful, but I’m always open to trying new places! My mom got a recommendation from her friend for this restaurant so we decided to check it out last Saturday…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Peaceful Restaurant

Whenever I’m craving Chinese food Downtown, the closest place to my office is Peaceful. I don’t find their food particularly good, but it does the job, which is why I keep coming back. Of all the times I’ve been here I’d say about 30% of the time I go away with a mildly upset stomach……

Icy Bar

My good friend X was back in town for her school break and I really wanted to take her to Candy Tree Dessert but unfortunately they were closed on on Wednesdays! This review may be a bit biased because I was really looking forward to Candy Tree, so I felt a bit let down with…

TMix Tea & Dessert Bar

I always love meeting up with Q because we can talk for hours and hours and she puts up with all my randomness and drama. After a really filling meal at Taishoken we drove up to TMix for some desserts! When we arrived the cafe was empty except for one table, but it got busier…
