Cafe Xu Hue - Bun Bo Hue Dac Biet

Cafe Xu Hue

I’ve been on a Bun Bo Hue run lately.  It’s all I will order whenever we go to pho, and that’s at least once a week.  And it all started with a visit to Cafe Xu Hue. Cafe Xu Hue is a small restaurant on Kingsway.  Not exactly hole-in-the-wall, as it’s quite bright and clean […]

Coquitlam Craft Beer Festival Winter 2018

Hi AngryRussian here!  On the afternoon of Saturday November 3rd, 2 friends and I, Noles and Junk, went up to the Westwood Plateau Golf and Country Club for the bi-annual Coquitlam Craft Beer Festival.  It’s a great no-token beer fest with around 40 beer/cider/food stalls.

Parallel 49 Brewing Street Kitchen

Parallel 49 Brewing Street Kitchen

PrettySis was in town to visit with the kiddos and she had been cycling around my parent’s part of town for cool places to eat.  One of these places was the Parallel 49 Brewing Street Kitchen, and she quickly made a date with me and the rest of the family to have lunch there. The Parallel […]

Old Xian’s Food 老西安厨娘子

Amay’s House Burmese and Asian Cuisine

Fannypack is such a good dinner partner because she is mostly up for anything.  When I said I wanted to try out Amay’s House, a burmese restaurant, she immediately says “Ok let’s go!” We tried a bunch of staples.  First we both really wanted Amay’s House’s version of Myanmar Tea Leaf Salad “Laphet Thoke” ($8).  Last […]

Trattoria Burnaby - Linguine Vongole

Trattoria Burnaby

Trattoria is one of many of Glowbal group’s ventures.  The original location is in Vancouver but they’ve expanded to a second location in Burnaby for a few years now.  AngryRussian and I decided to go for their “Tratt Tuesday” which means any of their pastas for $13! We made it in time for Trattoria’s “cocktail […]

Grub - Duck

Grub on Main

Fannypack and I celebrated my birthday a little late this year as we were both busy but we made it work.  Grub on Main was my final choice as it was out of downtown and their menu sounded yummy, although what you see on their website doesn’t necessarily reflect what they’re offering at the moment. Grub […]
