[New York] Bibble & Sip

When I was in New York, I received a recommendation from my friend B to try out Bibble & Sip. Luckily for me it was only a few blocks away from my hotel, so I got to check it out before the queue formed for their famous cream puffs. Bibble & Sip is a family…

[Dine Out Vancouver] Minami #DOVF

Minami is always a top pick for me for Dine Out Vancouver. In my opinion their $35 lunch menu is a great deal and never disappoints. I used to frequent their sister restaurant Miku a lot more, but in recent years I’ve started coming to Minami more. I find the ambiance to be less boisterous,…

[Dine Out Vancouver] Gyoza Bar #DOVF

I’ve been to Gyoza Bar a few times in the past, but I’ve never been particularly impressed. I decided to give them another chance when my friend C wanted to check out their $25 Dine Out dinner menu. We decided to order one of each option (excluding the vegetarian options) and share. What we ate:…

On Yogurt

If you know me, you will know that I am obsessed with sweet potatoes. So when On Yogurt launched their new line of Purple Sweet Potato themed desserts I knew I had to check it out. On Yogurt is a cute little dessert shop on the edge of Yaletown near BC Place. They are known for…

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…
