EBO Restaurant - Classic Eggs Benedict

EBO Restaurant

When PrettySis was in town with my almost 2 year old nephew on Easter Weekend, we made plans to meet up with our cousin Snoopy for brunch.  I suggested we try EBO Restaurant since parking would be easy to do on a Saturday during brunch hours and the restaurant would be roomy for the stroller […]

L’Éclair de Génie Vancouver Opening

Vancouver now has its very own L’Éclair de Génie boutique and I couldn’t be happier!!  I first tried eclairs from L’Éclair de Génie on a family trip to Paris and fell in love.  They are presented artistically and each and everyone of them were so beautiful that it was actually hard for us to choose just […]

John B. Pub - Egg-cellent Burger

John B. Pub

AngryRussian had been dying to take me to John B. Pub, a place he’s been going to for years, and one night we finally had the chance. John B is a casual pub restaurant in Coquitlam with an attached liquor store.  It is super roomy with plenty of tvs to watch the games from.  There’s […]

Fondway Cafe - Matcha Cheesecake & Sandwich

Big Dog Little Dog Bakery

It was my pup Tormund’s (as in Tormund Giantsbane…you know??  Game of Thrones??) 2nd birthday yesterday and I splurged on a doggy birthday cupcake for him this year.  I’m not a pet spoiler and I don’t usually give him treats so this was special for both him and I. I went to a local pet […]

Cake’Ya

Easter Sunday we decided to have a relaxing day and head to Rocky Point Park.  On the […]

Mr. Chili Noodle House Hot & Sour Potato Vermicelli

Mr. Chili Noodle House

The other day I was channeling the mantra of “Do one thing a day that scares you”. I decided to get a AXKA voucher for a meal for one to Mr Chili Noodle House and headed there for a lunch date with myself. With the voucher ($9.99) you get to pick from 3 noodle dishes, […]

Daiso Salt Tomato Candy

Way back during my high school years, there was a huge store in Richmond that sold Japanese snack and candy.  It was heaven as I was a huge Japanese fanatic back then.  I remember this store had loads of funky Japanese goodies you wouldn’t find anywhere else. One of the finds from that place was […]
