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 […]

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 […]

Lucky's Doughnuts

After many, many tastings, we’ve finally decided that between the two great doughnut makers in Vancouver, we Vancouver, we ♥ Lucky’s Doughnuts > Cartems Donuterie.  What finally sealed the deal was the doughnuts we had on our most recent visit to Lucky’s.

Hy's Steakhouse - Chateaubriand for two carved and plated

Hy’s Steakhouse & Cocktail Bar Vancouver

My family and I have actually been going to Hy’s Steakhouse in Downtown Vancouver for years for special occasions.  It’s Momsie’s favorite restaurant.  We really enjoy the atmosphere and the level of service we receive everytime.  In fact, one birthday, due to our special request, our server had the bartender make an Irish Coffee that […]
