Dine Out Vancouver 2017: Catch 122 Cafe Bistro

Catch 122 Cafe Bistro was my sixth and final restaurant for this season’s Dine Out Vancouver Festival. Yes…I went a little nuts this year but all because AngryRussian hasn’t done any before and he wanted to do 4, so that was that. Catch 122 was a $30 menu restaurant and I took my parents there. […]

Biercraft Marinier Mussels

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: Biercraft Bistro

Kicking off Dine Out Vancouver this year for us was Biercraft Bistro.  I had always wanted to try Biercraft but always forgot about them, so when I saw that they were participating in Dine Out and offering a $30 menu, it was a go! The appetizer version of Biercraft’s Salt Spring Island Marinier Mussel and Kennebec Frites […]

Tuc Craft Kitchen

For my birthday this year I made Fannypack take me to Tuc Craft Kitchen.  I’ve actually never heard of them and it was through looking on Urbanspoon for ratings and looking up menus, did I decide to go there. We came on a weekday quite early, so the place was quite empty.  But towards the […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2015: Abigail’s Party

Update:  This restaurant has closed. Abigail’s Party is a restaurant that’s offering a $28 Dine Out menu this year.  They’ve always been a restaurant I’ve wanted to try, but in previous years, their dine out menu didn’t entice me at all.  This year though, for some reason, their simple offerings of steak frites and fried […]

Burgoo

With the cooler weather we’ve been having lately, there was no better time to visit Burgoo.  I’ve never been before but had always heard good things, so I was excited to give them a try. Burgoo doesn’t take reservations.  We arrived at around 7:30pm and the place was pretty packed.  There were people waiting outside.  […]

Browns Socialhouse

SheShe has finally returned from her mat leave and I was finally able to lock down a brunch date with her…believe me it’s been a super long time coming.  We decided to go somewhere close and Browns Socialhouse was our choice.  She has been there before numerous times for brunch and recommended it. We went […]

Edible Canada Crispy Sweetbreads

Edible Canada at the Market

Travelzoo recently had a dinner-for-2 deal for Edible Canada in Granville Island.  We had both wanted to try this restaurant for a while now and missed it during Dine Out Vancouver this year, so I quickly snatched it up for a date with Fannypack.  This was one of the better value deals as you get […]

The Oakwood Bistro: Confit Tuna Benedict

Brunch at The Oakwood Canadian Bistro

There comes a time in your life when it really dawns on you that you’re growing up.  Or old.  This is that year for my high school friends and I as we’re all turning 30 this year.  “Luckily”, my birthday isn’t until the end of the year so as of now I’m still the youngest […]

Nordstrom’s ebar (Espresso Bar)

Whenever Boyfriend and I go to Lynnwood, if we happen to go to Alderwood Mall where there’s a Nordstrom, I have to get something from their ebar. It’s much like Starbucks/Blenz/Second Cup.  The prices are similar, even the layout is similar.  My favorite drink here is their Italian Soda which comes with cream and whipped […]

East Side Mario’s

Update: This restaurant has closed. 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 […]
