Castella Cheesecake

I’m sure you’ve all seen the jiggly cheesecake videos on social media. When I was in Japan last year, I had the opportunity to try Rikuro’s Cheesecake and it didn’t disappoint. I also had the chance to try Pablo cheese tarts and those were pretty life changing.  Since then, I’ve been on a quest to…

Lobster Foods

I was kindly invited by David and his team at Lobster Foods to come by and try out some of their signature items. I was joined by my friend Wing, so it was an evening of great food and amazing conversation coupled with a spectacular view. Lobster Foods is a new restaurant located in the heart…

Snowy Village – West End

I had dinner here with L when I got back from Japan. After almost a month of Japanese food, I’m glad to have Korean food again. We went to Dae-ji per L’s recommendation. This is the fifth time I’ve been to this location, but the first time that I actually enjoyed the food. Previously I…

Having a Guu’d Time

The weather in Vancouver has been absolutely fabulous this summer! It’s definitely the weather for salads and cocktails on the patio porch. I did a pseudo attempt at that today with my good friend S at Guu Otokomae in Gastown. Normally I’m not a huge fan of Guu. I enjoy their food but I’m not…
