John B. Pub - Egg-cellent Burger

John B. Pub

AngryRussian had been dying to take me to John B. Pub, a place he’s been going to for years, and one night we finally had the chance. John B is a casual pub restaurant in Coquitlam with an attached liquor store.  It is super roomy with plenty of tvs to watch the games from.  There’s […]

Cake’Ya

I forgot where I read about Cake’Ya.  It’s a tiny little operation located in Port Moody that makes a small selection of Japanese (Okinawan) goodies.  Small selection but each type of goody comes in an assortment of flavors. Easter Sunday we decided to have a relaxing day and head to Rocky Point Park.  On the […]

Coffee Monster

Coffee Monster

I remember wanting to visit Coffee Monster for a while now but it had fallen off my radar, but feeling like dessert one night, I googled what’s in the area and Coffee Monster popped up.  So AngryRussian and I took a walk there to see what they had to offer at 10:00pm on a Friday […]

Sushi California Coquitlam

Sushi California Coquitlam

Sushi California is a chain of Korean-run sushi restaurants that offer pretty decent portion sizes for not a lot of money.  It’s one of AngryRussian’s favorite places to eat actually.  We always go to the Coquitlam location on North Road. They remind me a lot of Sushi Garden in a lot of ways.  The pricing, […]

Busan Daeji Gukbap

I had originally wanted to take AngryRussian to Hee Rae Dang for his first non-Korean-BBQ-Korean dinner experience.  However it was just our luck that Hee Rae Dang was closed for renovations until- get this- the next day, so we kind of just walked around the area where Insadong is located and then I settled on […]

Hee Rae Dung Korean Chinese Restaurant 喜來燈

When MarathonMan from Calgary came to visit, GRock, L, him and I all went for dinner at Hee Rae Dung, which is a Korean-style Chinese restaurant.  This means, no Korean BBQ, no fear of smelling like it after! This is a restaurant that MarathonMan’s family, who’s Korean, frequent (he does not speak a word of […]

Wang Ga Ma Restaurant

In my continued effort to find a Korean restaurant in the lower mainland that serves a Galbitang comparable to the one I had at New Seoul in the States, I’ve asked a Korean coworker for recommendations, and she suggested Wang Ga Ma in Coquitlam.  Fannypack was once again my partner in crime. The Seafood Pancake […]

Insadong Coquitlam & Hmart Bakery

We actually had my birthday dinner the day before my birthday, since Dark Table wasn’t open the day of.  So the day of, we went out for a less planned out but no less extravagant dinner.  But it didn’t start out that way… At first, Hitman wanted to take me to the rice cake cafe […]
