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…

Bistro Sakana

Aburi sushi is one of my favourite things to eat in the whole world. If I had to choose one thing to eat for the rest of my life… aburi sushi would be it. When M suggested this Yaletown establishment for our dinner, I was more than down to check it out. We sat outside…

Bai Bua Thai Cuisine

In my many years of working The Fair I’ve tried pretty much ever restaurant in the vicinity, but somehow I managed to miss this place! Although it has been a years since I’ve left, I always go back at least once a year for fun. This year, M and I decided to go here before…

Shishinori

I’ve been eating pretty unhealthy as of late, so I try to rectify that by eating more vegetables at lunch and cutting out alcohol. I was in the Cambie area last week and I decided to revisit Shishinori. It’s been ages since I’ve been and it’s just as quaint as I remember. You need to…

Sura Korean Cuisine Restaurant

Sura is one of my go to Korean restaurants. It’s on the slightly pricier end but their location and banchan can’t be beat. They have some of the best Korean side dishes in town, and I always find myself back here for consistent Korean eats. This post is a combination of two visits! What we…

The Pawn Shop YVR

One of the best parts about starting a food blog is all the amazing new people I have had the opportunity to meet. Teresa and I decided to meet on a scorching hot weekend to partake in some $1 tacos! Unfortunately for use there was no more seating on the patio so we had to…

Samsoonie Noodle & Rice

I always see the gorgeous bossam platter from this restaurant on Instagram, but unfortunately we decided to dine here last minute and we were not able to reserve one. We came around 7:30 pm on a Wednesday night and it was very busy here. They only offer two banchan here (kimchi and beansprouts), so on…

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,…

Sugar Lab

Sugar Lab is a newly opened Mille Crepe Cake place in Burnaby. It’s a bit out of the way if you don’t drive, but it’s worth the trek out! Tiramisu Mille Crepe Cake ($8.50) This was my favourite dessert of the evening. I liked that the cake wasn’t too sweet and the multiple layers were…

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…

Whisky Six BBQ

I’m no expert in BBQ. The only BBQ I usually have is Korean BBQ, so this was a very new experience for me. I’m glad I went with a big group of people because we were able to order every meat offering on the menu. Each plate comes with a choice of two sides (wings are…

Copa Cafe

What I ate: Spicy Shrimp Paste Soup with Rice Noodle, Chicken Ball and Sausage ($9.95) I had their mixed noodle combo. It was alright, I was really hungry but I still coudn’t finish this. The chicken balls had a really strong soapy flavour and that made the noodles a bit unpalatable overall. Would I come…
