Sai Woo – Casual Asian Fusion Food in Historic Chinatown

Sai Woo is a casual Asian fusion food restaurant that uses fresh locally sourced ingredients. Sai Woo has a beautiful modern interior upstairs and a grittier ‘secret’ underground parlour (Woo Bar) downstairs. They have a Happy Hour from 5:00 – 6:30 PM and they serve 1/2 priced house made dumplings and spring rolls. I’m usually…

C Market Coffee – A Hidden Cafe Gem in Coquitlam

C Market Coffee is a new cafe that opened earlier this year in Coquitlam. Normally I wouldn’t venture that far out, however as one of the media judges for the Vancouver Foodster Brownie Challenge, I finally had a reason to check out this charming cafe that has been making waves on social media recently for…

Hwaro – Korean Steak House & Raw Bar

Hwaro Korean Steak House & Raw Bar is a relatively new Korean restaurant in Coquitlam offering contemporary Korean cuisine. They serve traditional favourites and BBQ as well as offering innovative culinary twists to classic Korean dishes. A great way to try out a selection of their fusion dishes is to come at lunch for their…

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…

Sooda Korean BBQ

Sooda Korean BBQ is best known for their “Sooda Box” a 46 cm sushi creation made with premium Korean beef. After seeing so many pictures on IG, I had to drag my friend W to check it out. We went on a weekend at prime dinner time and we managed to snag one of the…

Cafe SoBahn

I recently had the chance to check out the newly opened Cafe SoBahn in Coquitlam. Cafe SoBahn is a cute little Korean restaurant that serves up homestyle Korean cooking. Their menu is quite limited, but the restaurant itself is on the smaller side so that is to be expected. What we ate: SoBahn Weekly Special…

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…

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…

Jejudo

In an attempt to venture out of my comfort zone (not repeat the same restaurants over and over again) I found this Japanese-Korean sashimi restaurant. It’s tucked away on the second floor above Hannam Supermarket on North Road, so don’t make the same mistake I did and wander to sketchy back areas looking for this…

Cham Mani

My favourite Korean snack shop is Kimbap Cheonguk on North Road, but unfortunately it’s just a little bit too out of the way for an every day work lunch. Cham Mani isn’t really even second place, but it’s the closest and most convenient from my office, so I find myself here more often than not…
