Romer's Burger Bar - Sea of Cortez Shimp Tacos with Watermelon Salad

Romer’s Burger Bar Port Moody

AngryRussian and I had a double dinner date with his friends a while ago at Romer’s Burger Bar in Port Moody.  It was a sort of farewell-for-now as his friend was moving to Toronto for work.  I had been to Romer’s before but was never super impressed as I never got into their method of […]

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 […]

Chewies - Chicken & Waffles

Chewies Coal Harbour

Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar is a Southern-style cuisine restaurant known for their oysters, but that’s not the reason for my visit.  I had a craving for Chicken and Waffles so having remembered that Chewies offer it on their menu, I took a trip down to their Coal Harbour location for lunch. This location had large windows all along the […]

Royal Dinette Wagyu Beef Tartare

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: Royal Dinette

Royal Dinette was one of our two $40 picks this dine out season.  In 2016 they were voted “Best New Restaurant” in Vancouver Magazine and also “Best New Restaurant in Canada” in enRoute Magazine, so that sounds promising right?! I really liked the ambiance of Royal Dinette…they had a really warm glow and a very […]

Juniper Restaurant Holiday Cobbler cocktail

Juniper Restaurant

My pick this year for my annual birthday dinner with Fannypack was Juniper Restaurant in Chinatown.  I was intrigued with their huge gin cocktail menu and Fannypack sure sounded excited when I suggested the place so off we went! We were seated in a very private corner of the dining room area.  The privacy was nice but […]

Heirloom Vegetarian Restaurant

For Miz Brown Sugar’s birthday this year we went to Heirloom Restaurant for dinner.  Heirloom is a vegetarian/vegan restaurant that I had wanted to try for a while but never got around to it, so this was a fantastic excuse to go. We all started with drinks, all virgin.  From left to right is the Ginger Spritz […]

Chill Winston

We better be soaking up as much patio time as we can while we can!  Meeting up for lunch one day brought PrettySis, 2Sis and I to Chill Winston in Gastown. PrettySis ordered a Medea ($12.50) for 2Sis and it was gorgeous.  It was made with St. Germain elderflower liqueur, Campari, grapefruit juice, sage, and sparkling wine. […]

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 […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2015: Wildebeest

I’ll be honest with you.  Wildebeest was not on my list of restaurants to try after looking at the menu.  The only thing that looked remotely interesting to me was the Bison Carpaccio.  But I DID tell Fannypack to pick the restaurants and for once she did!  So I bit my tongue and went with […]
