Fondway Cafe - Matcha Cheesecake & Sandwich

Fondway Cafe

Fondway Cafe is a cute and spacious cafe that has opened up along the strip behind Metrotown mall.  There’s a bunch of new condos being built there which I guess makes it a good location.  It is also close to me so I have no complaints and made it a good choice for a long […]

Big Dog Little Dog Bakery - Austin's Big Pupcake

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 […]

Waffle Gone Wild - Strawberry Heaven Deluxe

Waffle Gone Wild

Waffle Gone Wild is a new-ish waffle cafe that has opened a location in Burnaby.  I only found out about it when I saw the deal they had on Groupon.  I saw “Japanese Mochi Waffle” on their menu and I was done.  I had to go.  I brought C-Dizzle with me on this endeavor. Waffle […]

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 […]

Private Home Chinese Cuisine 一点心意

Having moved out of Richmond for a while now, I must admit, I really miss the quality and quantity of good Asian restaurants within the city.  Now, when I want good Shanghai or Szechuan food, I have to drive across the bridge to get it and time my way back just so I won’t get […]

Pho Boi Kingsway

Pho Boi: A Taste of Attitude (Burnaby location)

  Wendy was quite excited to spot the transition of Pho Hoa on Kingsway to its new incarnation, Pho Boi: A Taste of Vietnam about a week ago.  We agreed to try it ASAP.  It seems this chain has its roots in Victoria, so in hindsight that should have been a red flag right there… […]

Mr. Ho Wonton House

When it gets really cold I always crave a hot bowl of pho.  Last night was no exception.  But somehow we ended up at Mr. Ho Wonton House.  How did that happen??  Well blame me and my trait of easily distractedness.  As Hitman and I were going along Kingsway I got distracted by the neon […]

Handi Cuisine of India (Burnaby)

Update: This restaurant has closed. Before we get to Handi Cuisine of India I’d like to say a few words about lazymeal.  For those of you not yet familiar with lazymeal, it’s an online food ordering platform that is focused on recommending the tastiest meals in greater Vancouver.  It’s simple, just punch in your postal […]
