Carlos Cantina

On our last day in Sidney, Victoria, SheShe and I went to a Mexican cantina for lunch/dinner before we had to head to the ferry.  We saw an ad for Carlos Cantina in the local magazine so we decided to go there. It was a very small, quaint place.  I actually quite enjoyed the decor.  […]

Beacon Landing Seafood Restaurant

There are quite a lot of places to eat around Sidney actually.  SheShe and I were just lazy and didn’t want to walk far from our lodging, so we had a few meals at the MickeyD’s next door unfortunately. But we got all dressed up one night for a Wine & Cheese at the local […]


I went to a congress in Victoria for work.  Yep.  Victoria.  Actually, it was Sidney.  Even worse.  I asked around beforehand about where to go to eat, and a fun place called Wannawafel came up.  It was located in downtown Victoria.  And they serve waffles.  So my roommate SheShe and I decided we were going […]

Gorilla Food

I had a day out with Miz Brown Sugar in Downtown and we were planning to have lunch too.  Since Miz Brown Sugar was vegan, I was left with the task of finding a suitable restaurant.  I actually didn’t realize how hard it was to find a vegan restaurant in Downtown.  I mean…it’s DOWNTOWN for god’s […]

Griffins @ Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

Update Feb 15, 2014: This restaurant is now closed. If you didn’t hear by now, it is Griffins 18th birthday this year and to celebrate, they are offering their menu for 50% off till the end of September.  Naturally I took advantage of this incredible deal and had dinner there with Fannypack.  She’s the best friend […]

The American Grille

Taking my parents out for dinner one night, we wanted good steakhouse food without travelling all the way to Downtown.  I remembered having been to The American Grille before and had a good meal there, so I decided to take my parents there. They are also in the Entertainment Book so there was all the […]

Cookies of Course

I’ve recently joined a bunch of those “Daily Deal” sites and I must say, I was skeptic at first but it’s been treating me pretty well.  They are usually very good deals and the coupon for Cookies of Course was one of my first purchases from Groupon.  The coupon allowed for 2 dozen cookies for […]

Paul Croteau Confections at Campagnolo Caffe

Paul Croteau Confections had approached a bunch of local food bloggers to sample Mr. Croteau’s creations.  He is currently the pastry chef of Campagnolo Restaurant and Refuel restaurant, and now he’s ready to “spread his wings” and open a confection shop of his own. We were invited to Refuel restaurant to have a tasting.  Unfortunately […]

Kawawa Ramen

I have a feeling I will get some backlash for writing this post.  Why?  Well let me get my final thoughts on Kawawa out early in this post.  Quite simply, I really enjoyed the food and will definitely go back. Kawawa is located inside Metrotown right beside their All-You-Can-Eat establishment of the same name.  Now […]
