Peanut’s Bubble Tea

Peanut’s Bubble Tea is an old school bubble tea joint hidden in the Richmond Public Market. I’ve been going here since I was a little kid, and it never fails to fill me up with nostalgia when I walk by. The number one thing to get here is their Taiwanese Wheel Cakes. My favourite flavour…

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…

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…

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…

Golden Oscar Cafe & Restaurant

Some days just scream for good old comfort food. Today was one of those days, so we went to Golden Oscar for a delicious piping hot plate of Baked Pork Chop Rice. What we ate: Baked Pork Chop Rice ($9.85) This is the dish to get at Golden Oscar. It’s not the best I’ve had…

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),…

Copa Cafe – Richmond

My family used to frequent the Copa Cafe on Cambie Street, but we haven’t been back in a long time. Last weekend when we were in Richmond we decided to drop by their Richmond location for some nostalgic eats. What I ate: Baked Ox Tongue on Rice with Tomato Sauce ($9.95) from their Mini Set…
