Kilala Sushi Bar

I must admit, even though I only live a few blocks away from Kilala Sushi Bar, I’ve only recently discovered this hidden gem. This small hole-in-the-wall is run by a husband and wife team. The husband is the sushi chef and the wife serves the food. Be prepared to wait for food as it’s just…

[Dine Out Vancouver] Wildebeest #DOVF

I recently had dinner at Wildebeest, and it was absolutely amazing. So, even before the Dine Out Vancouver menus were released, I knew I had to make a reservation for their $45 Dine Out Vancouver dinner menu. It was extremely busy when I arrived for my 8:30PM reservation with S. The restaurant even turned away…

[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] L’Abattoir #DOVF

L’Abattoir is located in the center of Gastown between historic Gaoler’s Mews and Blood Alley. The restaurant is known for French influenced West Coast fare with an inspired cocktail list. It is one of my favourite restaurants in Vancouver for dinner and for brunch. I’ve never tried their Dine Out before, so I decided to…

Saku

One of the best parts of having a food Instagram (besides an excuse to eat all the time!) is meeting like minded individuals who you share interests with beyond food. I’m so lucky and thankful to have made so many friends off Instagram that I wouldn’t otherwise have crossed paths with. On a scorching hot…

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…

The DownLow Chicken Shack

As a food blogger, I have a pretty open mind when it comes to food and what I am willing to eat. My philosophy is to always try something if it is being offered to me. That being said, I grew up not really liking fried foods and as an adult I rarely eat deep…

Merchant’s Workshop

The best part of my job is the amazing friends I have made. Although we don’t all work together anymore, we try to get together as often as possible to catch up. This get together was months in the making and it was a perfectly relaxed night of wine and good food. What we ate:…

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…
