Kim Ga Nae 金家內

Update Feb 15, 2014: This restaurant is now closed. This is one of the newer Korean BBQ restaurants in Richmond.  It is located at Browngate Road diagonally across from Aberdeen Centre. They boast 27 items on their AYCE BBQ menu, which is $19.95 at dinner time.  However, as you can see, two items are crossed […]

Sushi World/Pink Swirl

Update Sep 13, 2010: Now closed but part of the restaurant Pink Swirl, in the same mall. Update: Pink Swirl now closed too 🙁 One of our favorite take-out sushi places is Sushi World, located in Empire Centre on No. 3 Road in Richmond. This place is owned by Chinese.  Now, normally I would stay […]

The Fish House at Stanley Park

Update: This restaurant has closed. The Fish House is one of our most favorite restaurants.  We like it because they always have coupons in Entertainment Book, and even without the coupon, the prices are not too hard to swallow. They have two dining areas.  This is the lighter, brighter side.  The other side is more […]

Dine-out Vancouver 2009: The American Grille

Boyfriend and I were able to attend another Dine-out just prior to my cruise.  This time I chose a $28 menu, at a restaurant close to where we live so that we didn’t have to travel far. We had been to The American Grille once before because of a recommendation from a friend to try […]

Macarons by Saint Germain Bakery

Went shopping at Metrotown and walked by the Saint Germain Bakery.  The colorful macarons in their fridge caught my eye, and since I’ve had quite a bit during my cruise, I was eager to try them. Pretty aren’t they?  From left they are Lemon, Strawberry and Pistachio. Texture-wise, these were quite a bit thicker than […]

Dai Jang Kum 大長今

This has been Boyfriend’s and my favorite Korean restaurant for the longest time.  Even though they advertise BBQ on their exterior, I frequent them for their normal non-BBQ foods. They use to be Wang Gal Bee and I loved them then.  About a year ago they changed name (and hands?) and I was terrified that […]

Granville Room Duck Confit

Dine-out Vancouver 2009: Granville Room

I’ll be leaving for a South American cruise on Saturday, meaning I’ll miss the bulk of Dine-out Vancouver.  Since I’ll also be missing a friend’s birthday during that time, I quickly organized a dinner together to take advantage of Dine-out. A friend wanted to try a restaurant from the $18 menu.  I picked Granville Room […]

Si Chuan First Restaurant 天府風私房菜

Update Oct 3, 2009: This restaurant has since shut down. This is a small, not particularly noticeable Sze Chuan (Si Chuan) restaurant nestled in a little alcove on Buswell Street.  If you know where Happy Date is, you can cross from Happy Date to the back and you’ll see it. This is a gem of […]

ellie Tropical Cuisine 耶里流行餐坊

Update May 18, 2009: This restaurant has since closed down 😥 OMG.  I’ve found the BEST LAKSA EVER (on this side of the world anyways…). I’ve always wanted to go to Ellie to try their paper hotpot.  However now that I’m here, I’ve realized that they’ve increased their pricing and now I find it a […]
