La Terrazza

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: La Terrazza

La Terrazza had been on my list of restaurant to try for a few years now and I’ve never gotten around to it until now!  This was our second $40 Dine Out pick and last of AngryRussian and my four dine outs…I have one more to go with my parents…yes I went crazy this year. La […]

Campagnolo - Ricotta Gnudi

Campagnolo

A lot of my dining choices have to do with Masterchef.  The choice to go to Campagnolo was no exception.  In one episode, the challenge was to make gnudi, which is a ricotta-based gnocchi-like Italian dish, except there’s no potatoes in it.  I’ve never heard of gnudi before and it sounded delicious, so off to Google I […]

Squid Ink Pasta with Garlic Prawns and Fiddleheads

Having been at the EAT! Vancouver festival for all three days, I was able to curate a lot of goodies from different vendors.  Tonight’s dinner involves two ingredients that we purchased. We’d never tried squid ink pasta before so when we saw Tonnarelli Seppia Nera (an egg based squid ink medium noodle) at the Bosa Foods stall, we bought a […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2014: Siena Restaurant

OMG!  4 down 1 to go!!  It’s nearing the end of my DOVF dash.  I must say it’s been going good so far. I met up with GRock and LockerBud who I’ve known for 23 years.  LockerBud and I go way back.  Like waaaaaay back.  We lived across from each other when we were young […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2014: Ask for Luigi

For my third DOVF event this year, Hitman and I were invited by Sharon of Eat, Drink, Travel to join her at Ask for Luigi. Theirs is the $28 menu. I was especially excited to try their homemade pasta. It was very very small in there, and only had one bathroom. Good thing we made […]

Via Tevere Pizzeria Napoletana

A thing about Hitman is that he is into good, authentic food as much as I am. He’s always looking for the truest form of preparation for a certain type of cuisine and in reality, he is much, MUCH pickier than I am =P On our first date we were at a Thai restaurant and […]

Romano’s Macaroni Grill @ Alderwood Mall

On a recent trip to Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, we decided to have “lunch” (it was 3pm) at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.  Some of you may be familiar with this name as it is a franchised restaurant, and locally they have a location in Vancouver also. It was a particularly warm day so we decided to […]

Marcello Pizzeria & Ristorante

Work friends decided to have our own Christmas dinner/gathering on top on the annual workplace party.  G, having been all around town, decided on Marcello on Commercial.  As he said, it’s Italian and most people enjoy Italian (except me that is haha). I’ve never been there before so I read some reviews.  It seems that […]
