Stanley Park Restaurant & Brewpub

Stanley Park Restaurant & Brewpub is a new restaurant that opened just a couple weeks ago by the JRG group in Stanley Park. It takes over the space that used to house one of my favourite restaurants- The Fish House, so it’s huge.  They have a large selection of Stanley Park Brewing craft beer and quite […]

Sing Sing Beer Bar

We had drove by Sing Sing Beer Bar many times before and had always been intrigued by the neon “WE HAVE BEER” sign, so when PrettySis was in town it was an opportunity to go for a quick lunch before heading for wedding dress shopping. Sing Sing Beer Bar was right on Main Street, and […]

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 […]

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

Old Xian’s Food 老西安厨娘子

We had passed by Old Xian’s Food many times when AngryRussian has softball and every time I had wanted to go.  I finally got the chance when I had a huge noodle craving one night and we made the out-of-the-way drive to the Kingsway location. Old Xian shares a small parking lot with a few other […]

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 […]

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 […]

Forage - Grilled Humboldt Squid

Dine Out Vancouver 2018: Forage

For my last Dine Out of the year we picked a $30 menu and decided on Forage.  This is not my first Forage rodeo but it was my first dine out with them. First a note about the service though- As it was dine out, we were restricted to a 1.5 hour dining period…this was […]

Notch8 - Garden under the Sea

Dine Out Vancouver 2018: Notch8 Restaurant

I’ve actually never heard of Notch8 Restaurant before and the first time was when I was picking out a Dine Out Vancouver menu this year.  The way they named their dishes was very endearing to me, plus they had grilled octopus on the menu!  So Notch8 became my second Dine Out Vancouver restaurant and C-Dizzle […]
