Bestie with my Bestie

Sorry Fannypack, but the real reason why I asked you to go with me to Bestie (a German restaurant in Vancouver’s Chinatown) was so that I could name my post as such.  I used you I know, I’m sorry.  Hey at least we got a date and some Bestie/Bestie badges out of it right? As […]

Beggar’s Chicken @ Suhang Restaurant 蘇杭人家

Going way, way back to our Mid-Autumn Festival family celebration, Hitman and I had dinner with my parents and relatives at Suhang Restaurant. It was his first time for Shanghainese food. The draw for me was that my uncle had pre-ordered the Beggar’s Chicken and I was excited to see and try it.  I hadn’t […]

Citrus Tart @ Beaucoup Bakery

On my last girl date with TDog, we made a trip down to Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe so TDog could try out their pastries too.  A good thing about Beaucoup is that they come out with seasonal limited edition pastries to keep things interesting. This time around, to give us a taste of summer which […]

Fat Duck Mobile Eatery Ltd

Here’s a review of a lunch I had on the go downtown earlier this week.  Quick lunch, quick review.  Fat Duck Mobile Eatery Ltd food truck parks outside of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Hamilton between Dunsmuir and Georgia.  Their menu items hover around $10.  I’ve really been digging the food cart thing as of […]

The Seafood Pancake […]

Home-cooking: Heart Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

I prepared these adorable heart-shaped cinnamon rolls for dessert for our Valentine’s night dinner. As usual I found a super easy recipe online, this time from the Pillsbury website itself! Ingredients: All you need is a can of ready-to-bake cinnamon rolls. Make sure it’s the regular rolls not the mini ones, as reviews seem to […]

Late Night @ Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant

After an evening downtown I had a congee craving so Wendy suggested we try Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant, an unassuming Chinese place along Kingsway that does a late night menu.  The menu is quite varied and has three tiers priced at $5.35, $6.45, and $6.95. We ordered a Plain Congee (Large) ($5.35) and it […]

Mui Ngo Gai

One time while driving down Kingsway I noticed the bright awning of Mui Ngo Gai.  That led me to the website address they posted on their window.  I thought it was interesting that a Vietnamese restaurant that’s not part of a chain would have a website setup. So I logged on to check them out. […]
