[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. The appetizer choice…

Milssam Tacorea

Milssam Tacorea is a brand new Korean Mexican taco joint that opened recently in Yaletown. It offers a small but focused menu of Mexican favourites (like tacos, mole and nachos) and adds a Korean twist to their dishes. On the sweeter end, you can order Ms. Osmad’s souffle cheesecake made fresh every 30 minutes (also…

L’Abattoir

L’Abattoir is one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver. I have been here multiple times for dinner, but I’ve never been able to get a good photo of their amazing food because it’s usually quite dark! I was really excited to finally have the opportunity to try their amazing food during the day at brunch. I…

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…

Sopra Sotto

Sopra Sotto is a gorgeous Italian restaurant located on the Drive. The restaurant serves fresh traditional Italian food in a contemporary setting. I came by on a sunny afternoon to enjoy their Happy Hour and to catch up with my girlfriends. The restaurant is spacious and beautifully decorated. The Sangria was bright and refreshing, no…

Milkcow Cafe

Milkcow Cafe has been making waves on social media with their IG worthy desserts. After a filling lunch at Sura, Q and I decided to drop by and check this cute cafe out. When we first arrived the entire cafe was full, but by the time we left about an hour later the cafe was…

La Taqueria

I always go through phases where I will be obsessed with a certain food or dish. Earlier this year it was Eggs Benedict, and then soft serve. My latest food obsession is – Tacos! Where better than La Taqueria to satisfy my cravings? They have six locations (five in Vancouver and one in Victoria). La…

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…

Peaceful Restaurant

When I’m craving Shanghai food during work hours I usually end up coming to Peaceful Restaurant. It’s by no means the greatest, in fact one could argue it’s barely average, but beggars can’t be choosers. I came here last week for dinner because it was conveniently between my friend’s office and my office. What we…
