Gyo-O 魚王

Wendy likes to check out the Klip magazine where they feature local restaurants and other interesting items.  The front cover to a recent issue had Gyo-O as one of the featured places (it sure pays to be on the front cover)!  Gyo-O is at a good location inside the usually busy Continental Centre in Richmond.  […]

Koon Bo Restaurant 冠寶

Koon Bo is one of those restaurants that if you don’t know about it, you would never think to go there.  After all, the location pretty much sucks, the parking sucks, the decor sucks, the waiting area sucks, you get the drift.  So why is it so popular?  Of course it’s the food.  It’s not […]

Ruby’s Diner

Update Apr. 8, 2014-This restaurant is now closed. Wendy and I have been in Washington State quite a bit this year.  We usually stay the night at her relative’s home and then roam the highways of the I5.   The funny thing is that we usually end up at Alderwood Mall.  Wendy loves her Sephora and […]

Pearl Castle 圓香 @ Richmond Centre

Pearl Castle at Richmond Centre has finally opened and Boyfriend and I took the chance to visit it on a weekday for lunch.  Boy it was packed.  But we still managed to get a seat right away.  Oh it’s located in the same corridor where McDonald’s is, at the space that was previously Richmond Farm […]

Bubble Queen

You take a long-time classic like “Milk Tea”, throw some tapioca balls (and then call them precious pearls) in there and thus, creating one of the most popular modern beverage in the last 15 years.   We call it simply ‘Bubble Tea’ – its existence permeates the lives of most Asians around the world.   Today, we […]

East Side Mario’s

Sephora newly opened in Coquitlam and Pacific Centre and Wendy wanted to go.  It is a place where men were to be stranded, surrounded by females whom desires to be more perfect, and searching for the gaze of other stranded men for a feeling of sympathy and understanding.   I, on the other hand, thoroughly enjoy […]

Home-cooking: Steamed Clams in Chinese Wine

Boyfriend and I chose to splurge on a home-cooked dinner one night.  We both love shellfish, and they seem easy enough to prepare, so that’s what we had. Besides clams I really didn’t want to have to buy anything extra, but most of the recipes online call for dry white wine, which we don’t have.  […]

Home-cooking: Breakfast Smoothie

My parents are on vacation for 2 weeks so I’ll have to fend for myself in the meals department for the time being. Not wanting to rely on takeout and instant noodles for 2 weeks, I started to make some simple meals and here’s to chronicling those attempts! And thus..the first post of my “Attempts […]

Richard Walker’s Pancake House

On our last day in San Diego, some of our girls asked the front desk person where’s a good nearby place to go for breakfast. We were suggested Richard Walker’s Pancake House and so that’s where we headed. We were warned though, it’s a very popular place and there could be long waits. Now when […]
