Caffe di Beppe

One of the most rewarding parts of starting a food Instagram is all the amazing and wonderful people that I have met on the platform. One of these lovely ladies is Yuki! We finally had our long awaited date this week and what better place to meet than the very romantic Di Beppe restaurant? Another…

Cacao 70

What we ate: Matcha Chocolate Fondue – Double ($18.75) This was alright. It’s a pretty basic fondue and honestly it wasn’t anything special. There was four little dishes of fruit (banana, apple, strawberry and pineapple), a cut up waffle and one brownie. Would I come back? No. I didn’t find the fondue to be anything…

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…

Jin Jiang Shanghai Restaurant

I adore Shanghai food and I’m so lucky that Vancouver has some really great Shanghainese  restaurants. My ride or die Shanghai restaurant will always be Shanghai Wonderful, but I’m always open to trying new places! My mom got a recommendation from her friend for this restaurant so we decided to check it out last Saturday…

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…

House Special

I always walk past House Special on my way to my facial clinic, but I’ve never had a chance to try them out. Well, M and I finally had a chance last month! What we ate: Papaya Salad + Beef Jerky – Shredded green papaya, fresh herbs, Vietnamese pickles, peanuts, beef jerky; sweet soya vinaigrette…

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…

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…

The Rise Eatery

What we drank: Caesar ($10.00), Geisha-rita – sake, lychee, pink lemonade and togarashi ($12.00) and Mojito ($10.00) The last two drinks had fancier names but I can’t remember what they were and they don’t have the bar menu online. The consensus was that the drinks weren’t very good. The Geisha-rita was particularly weird with the togarashi…

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,…
