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…

Shanghai Morning Restaurant

I’m not the biggest fan of waking up early in the morning, but when there’s Shanghai food on the line, I will do my best. Deviating from my go to Shanghai Wonderful, we decided to check out this restaurant which was recommended by a friend. What I ate: Seafood Hot and Sour Soup ($8.95) This…

Teppan Kitchen

Nothing beats Teppan Kitchen for convenience when it comes to lunch. This is my favourite place to get Hainanese chicken rice (海南雞飯) in Vancouver. When they first opened I went almost twice a week, and I’ve raved to everyone I know about this place as well. I always get either the rice or their Seafood…

Congee Noodle Delight

Every once in awhile the cravings for a big steaming bowl of congee get very real. There isn’t a whole lot of places downtown that offer traditional Hong Kong style food, so I was really happy when I discovered Congee Noodle Delight at Tinseltown. What we ate: Preserved Egg Congee with Pork Slices ($6.50) This…

Bbong Korean Restaurant

I was really craving Jjampong, so I dragged S all the way out to North Road to satisfy my craving. This was definitely a case of my eyes being bigger than my stomach, because we ordered way too much food for 2 people (considering I don’t eat a whole lot, so really too much food…

NingTu Restaurant

NingTu used to be my family’s go to for Shanghai food, but over the years I felt that the quality has really gone down. We sometimes come for nostalgia’s sake. This time I came with my mom for a quick lunch. One thing that they don’t do well here is Xiao Long Bao (sad but…

Pearl Hot Pot

This was my first ever experience with personal hot pots! This was so much fun. The set up of Pearl Hot Pot is quite interesting. There are side tables for bigger groups, but the center of the restaurant is basically bar seating. Each person gets their own pot and burner. What I ate: Main Pot…

Cattle Cafe

Cattle Cafe has always been our go to for soup noodles near by Metrotown. Although the restaurant is very stuffy with very poor ventilation, and the service is boarding on rude, I just can’t seem to stay away! What I ate: Malay Laksa Soup + Rice Noodle + Sliced Beef + Chicken ball + Fried…

Bubble Waffle Cafe

This is probably my No. 1 place to get lunch in Downtown. It’s cheap, it’s fast, and it’s delicious. As much as I love my Miku lunches there’s no way I could eat there every day! This place is always busy. Even though the rest of the stalls in the food court have healthy business (mostly),…
