Rice Burger

Burgers are hardly a new concept, but rice burgers have yet to reach the same level of mainstream popularity as their carb-y bread counterparts in Vancouver. Rice burgers (bread buns are replaced with compressed ‘buns’ of rice) were first introduced in Japan and have since become popular all across Asia. Not too many places offer…

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…

Passion Tearoom

Passion Tearoom is a cute family run bubble tea joint located in Downtown Vancouver. All of their drinks use only fresh fruits and and freshly brewed tea. None of their drinks use flavored syrups or powdered milk which is rare to find these days! I was recently invited to check them out, and I really…

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…

Soft Peaks

I was kindly invited by Trudy, to try the new Frissant Ice Cream Sandwich at Soft Peaks Ice Cream in Burnaby. The store interior is very spacious with lots of natural light. The Burnaby location has to be at least double the size of their Gastown counterpart. What we drank: Iced Caffè mocha ($4.50) The…

Nana’s Green Tea

Nana’s Green Tea has been on my to-go list of places to eat in Japan for as long as I can remember, but I have never had the chance to go. I was extremely happy when I found out that they were opening their first North American branch in Vancouver! I’m not one for queues,…

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…

Minami Restaurant

Undoubtedly the go-to aburi sushi restaurant in Vancouver is Miku, but when they are too busy during lunch hour the next best would be their sister restaurant – Minami. Last week I had a craving for aburi, but didn’t have the foresight to make a reservation, so we ended up making our way to Yaletown…

Tuc Craft Kitchen

The month of March is always a crazy busy time for me, so I try my best to meet my friends as often as time permits, but usually it’s a quick catch up over coffee or a hurried dinner during Happy Hour times. Luckily I have some of the most understanding friends in the world…
