Before I begin this post, I just want to say that I was excited about trying the Gypsy Trunk Gourmet Fare food cart and I really wanted to like them. I admire the proprietor’s free-spirited decision to follow her dream (read more about that on the Gypsy Trunk website) and I respect any business that […]
Wendy and I were looking for a quick snack around Broadway and Cambie, and Solly’s Bagelry looked like it fit the bill. Once inside things got a bit more interesting, as we could see that Solly’s wasn’t just a bagel place, but a full Jewish bakery. As the sign says, they carry babka but we […]
A coworker asked me to post more recipes; I think it’s cuz she’s getting married soon and needs some simple home cooking recipes to feed her soon-to-be-hubby =) So here’s a simple lamb recipe for her to hopefully make one day to wow him! Hitman and I collaborated on our Valentine’s Day dinner. We decided […]
Ever find yourself daydreaming of your next vacation while you’re at work? Wish you could magically transport yourself out of that cramped cubicle and escape to some exotic destination for some much-needed R & R? What if I said you could indulge your fantasy on your next lunch break? If you work downtown, Mangal Kiss […]
Update: This restaurant is closed. ORU at the Fairmont Pacific Rim hotel was the last stop for Dine Out Vancouver 2014. It coincided with Pretty Sis’ visit so it worked out perfectly as a venue for some much-needed and long overdue sister-talk. I’d never been to ORU before and I was very, very pleasantly surprised […]
T-Dog and I went to McDonald’s for morning break. We were super excited and ecstatic to see that they now offer whole grain McMuffins AND egg whites, which you can get in the form of an Egg White LT McMuffin sandwich. So of course we both ordered it. What a mistake.
Hi everyone, things are finally settling down around here after a hectic week of site renovation. Basically, we felt like we had “outgrown our old clothes” and were starting to feel a bit like our friend vulgar cat here does ^^ So we are now fully self-hosted and can ditch the cone of shame, yay!
Wendy was quite excited to spot the transition of Pho Hoa on Kingsway to its new incarnation, Pho Boi: A Taste of Vietnam about a week ago. We agreed to try it ASAP. It seems this chain has its roots in Victoria, so in hindsight that should have been a red flag right there… […]
We spent the holidays over on Vancouver Island this year. There didn’t seem to be too many fine dining choices in the Comox Valley area, but it was recommended we go to Locals Restaurant in Courtenay, so for my official birthday dinner celebration with Hitman that’s where we went. They’re known for sourcing their food locally […]
