Trattoria Italian Kitchen

I was kindly invited by the General Manager of Trattoria to sample some of their new dishes earlier this month. I had the opportunity to try a variety of their classics as well as their new dishes. Trattoria Burnaby is located across from Crystal Mall in Burnaby. They have a medium sized patio for sunny…

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…

Caffe di Beppe

One of the most rewarding parts of starting a food Instagram is all the amazing and wonderful people that I have met on the platform. One of these lovely ladies is Yuki! We finally had our long awaited date this week and what better place to meet than the very romantic Di Beppe restaurant? Another…

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….

My Frosty

One of my favourite desserts in the world is Shaved Ice (patbingsu) and I’m so glad that it has become trendy and popular in Vancouver. Although Passion8 is still my first choice, My Frosty is slowly but surely climbing it’s way to number one in my heart. What I love about My Frosty is that…

Aburi King

I used to spend quite a bit of time in the Renfrew-Collingwood area, and one of my favourite restaurants in that area used to be Maruyama. Sadly they have closed down now, and in it’s place is Aburi King. I’ve heard a lot about it in recent days on social media so I decided to…

ZenQ Burnaby

Growing up in North Burnaby I have always felt that there was a serious lack of good bubble tea joints. Enter – ZenQ. Perhaps a decade too late for me (it’s a pretty good study spot!), it’s a great dessert hot spot. They’re relatively new in Burnaby so it’s not super busy, but I’m definitely…

Quantum Coffee

What we drank: Cappuccino ($4.00) and Ethiopian Pour Over with grains of paradise spice, orange zest and sugar syrup This has got to be the prettiest cappuccino I’ve ever seen! It was not bad, but the espresso they used had a pretty acidic profile and that just doesn’t really work for me. The specialty pour…

NORI Bento & Udon

I was on campus last week for work and I was pleasantly surprised to see so many new eateries! I’m so jealous of students now with their plethora of options for good eats. I only had a short amount of time for lunch so I decided to check out NORI, because I’ve been hearing good…

Bayside Lounge

I never used to be much of a morning person, but recently I’ve been obsessed with brunch! I decided to check out the Bayside Lounge at English Bay because I saw a delicious picture of their chicken and waffles on Instagram! I came here on a Saturday morning with a few friends and because we…
