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…

Tuc Craft Kitchen

The month of March is always a crazy busy time for me, so I try my best to meet my friends as often as time permits, but usually it’s a quick catch up over coffee or a hurried dinner during Happy Hour times. Luckily I have some of the most understanding friends in the world…

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House

One of the best lunch deals in my opinion is Joe Fortes Blue Plate specials. They have a feature every day and until March 23, all the specials are available every day of the week. What we ate: Lobster Oil and Vinegar If it wasn’t so uncouth, I would drink this out of the plate….

The Boulevard Coffee Roasting Co.

The Boulevard used to be my go to hang out during my university days. It’s been ages since I’ve been back, but since I was on campus for work, I decided to drop by during my walk down memory lane. W What I drank: Mocha ($4.25) This is not usually my drink of choice, but…

Merchant’s Workshop

The best part of my job is the amazing friends I have made. Although we don’t all work together anymore, we try to get together as often as possible to catch up. This get together was months in the making and it was a perfectly relaxed night of wine and good food. What we ate:…

Cacao 70

What we ate: Matcha Chocolate Fondue – Double ($18.75) This was alright. It’s a pretty basic fondue and honestly it wasn’t anything special. There was four little dishes of fruit (banana, apple, strawberry and pineapple), a cut up waffle and one brownie. Would I come back? No. I didn’t find the fondue to be anything…

Brix and Mortar

Brix and Mortar has been on my wish list for the longest time. I’ve only heard good things about their menu so I was so glad I finally got to check this off my list! Unfortunately the courtyard space was closed that evening, but their interior dining space was just as beautiful. What we ate:…

The Keg – Yaletown

This is just a quick post because I’ve blogged about The Keg multiple times, and I always get the same thing. What I drank: Dark n’ Stormy – Gosling’s Black Seal Rum, ginger beer, fresh lime juice ($7.50) I prefer the one at Cactus Club a lot more. This version tasted extremely watered down. What…

Tractor

In an attempt to live a healthier lifestyle, I met with R an H at Tractor on a gorgeous weekend for a lunch date. I hear that Tractor is pretty busy during work days, but when we were there it was pretty quiet. What we ate: 1/2 sandwich Chicken – Grilled chicken breast, arugula, pear,…

Earls – Yaletown

What we ate: Chicken Tacos ($3.00 each), Vodka Coke ($3.00 each) and Warm Spinach and Artichoke Dip ($9.00) I’ve reviewed the Chicken Tacos at length, but this is the first time we got the dip. It was so good! There were a lot of artichoke pieces and the bread that it was served was with…
