Pho Thai Hoa 泰和 Richmond

Update Feb 15, 2014: This restaurant has since shut down. This is officially my new favorite pho place.  They are cheap, delicious, and their service is wonderful!!

Sweety Pink 100% Healthy Dessert 百份百甜品

Update: This restaurant has closed. This is a small HK-style dessert shop located on Westminster Highway where Kingspark restaurant is.  I like this place because they have a few unusual yummy desserts, one such I am about to show you. The interior is quite small.  There’s about 10 tables in total.  It’s pretty brightly lit […]

Saffron Indian Cuisine

Saffron Indian Cuisine – Lunch Buffet

Having heard good things about the lunch buffet at Saffron, I dragged Boyfriend out to Burnaby on a Monday afternoon to try it out. It was relatively easy to find, located on Kingsway.  Once you step into the restaurant you are surrounded by the wonderful aroma of Indian cooking. There’s a bigger selection at this […]

Seasons in the Park

We went out for a family dinner and the restaurant my mom chose was Seasons in the Park located in Queen Elizabeth Park (did you know that this park is actually situated on top of an extinct volcano??).  My mom heard that it has a beautiful view so we decided to go and see. Indeed, […]

Le Bonbon Cheesecake Cafe

Update Oct 13, 2009: This shop has since closed down 🙁 Le Bonbon Cafe is my current favorite bakery to get cheesecake from.  The owner bakes the cheesecakes herself and it is one of the most flavorful cheesecakes I’ve ever tasted, even better than Cheesecake, Etc. Boyfriend bought me three slices as a surprise.  A […]

Buca di BEPPO – Lynnwood, WA

Jack In The Box

Boyfriend had always wanted to try Jack In The Box.  He had a chance this time. They had a variety of special milkshakes during this time.  If I remember correctly, there was Eggnog and Pumpkin Pie.  I chose to get the Pumpkin Pie milkshake to try. It was VERY thick, like most fast food shakes.  […]

World Wrapps @ Alderwood Mall

Update: World Wrapps is now closed. We didn’t get out of our relatives house until around 1pm that day, so we were starving.  We planned to eat at the food court but I saw World Wrapps at the outer Village part of the mall, and I couldn’t take my hunger anymore. The inner decor was […]

Red Lobster “Endless Shrimp Fest”

Before our trip to Washington I’ve been seeing these Red Lobster commercials on tv promoting their “Endless Shrimp Fest”.  The commercial looked so enticing we decided to pay them a visit when we’re down there. The closest one to us is the one in Lynnwood. I must say they did a pretty good job with […]
