Taco Bell

Our first dinner during our US trip was at Taco Bell.  This specific location is the one located near Seattle Premium Outlet at exit 202. We’ve always liked Taco Bell.  They have great tasting, big and cheap combos. Currently they offer these fruit & creme slushie drinks called Fruitista Freeze.  There are 3 flavors: Triple […]

Late Night @ Lam Chu Kee 林柱記

Update Feb 28, 2011: This restaurant is now closed. One of our favorite Cantonese late night places is this place.  It is located in Continental Centre on Hazelbridge. Late night dinner is called “Da Lan” (打冷) and you basically order a few dishes of (fatty) dishes to share and usually comes with AYCE congee. My […]

Greek Food Festival 2008…and Loukoumades…

This is the second time we’ve been to the Greek Food Festival at the Hellenic Community of Vancouver.  This is something they hold every year around mid-October.  This year marks the 31st anniversary and it’s held from Oct 17-19. There’s really not much to see inside, we’re here for the food obviously.  The east side […]

Hot Grass Jelly 燒仙草

One of my favorite asian desserts is something called Hot Grass Jelly 燒仙草.  As stated by its name, it is a hot dessert. This is sort of a specialty of Taiwanese restaurants.  It is especially yummy and comforting on a cold Fall/Winter day, as it has been these past few weeks. Now it may look […]

Northern Delicacy 客滿庭

Update: Northern Delicacy is now closed. We’ve been to Northern Delicacy numerous times.  It is located in Aberdeen Centre.  Did you know that on some maps this area is called “Golden Village”? It was a Monday.  I thought the mall would be relatively quiet.  Nope.  I forgot that is was THANKSGIVING MONDAY.  One thing I […]


I asked the Boyfriend to get me some of these  on his layover at Narita Airport in Japan.  I had these about 7 years ago when I went to Japan.  I’ve always liked rice cake consistency Japanese sweets so I’ve longed for these ever since that time.  Obviously, I haven’t been to Japan for a […]

A&W Uncle Burger

After seeing the commercial for this new Uncle Burger at A&W, I knew I had to try it.  It is basically their version of a sirloin burger, probably similar to Mickey D’s Angus Burger (which I didn’t like at all…bring back the Big Xtra!!!!).  It supposedly has 3 ozs of sirloin meat in the patty. […]

Shanghai House Restaurant 上海人家

This location seems to have many change of hands.  This time around it became a Shanghai restaurant.  The outer decor is left the same, except for obviously the restaurant sign.  They’re located on No. 3 Road across from Richmond Centre, in the mall that houses Staples. I have never been inside the previous identities, so […]

Noodle Express 中華楼

Update: This restaurant is now closed. We were on a quest to find the next great ramen place.  From reading blogs online I decided on two places: Shogun the Sapporo Ramen and Noodle Express, both for cheap and good ramen. First stop was Shogun.  However, once we’ve arrived, it turns out this place closes at […]

Green Lemongrass Vietnamese Cuisine

The best pho soup base for me lately has got to be this place.  It’s located between No. 3 Road and Cooney, along Westminster Highway. Between the 3 of us only one ordered pho, but they still gave us a big plate of boiled bean sprouts, basil and lime.  Even though it’s not the way […]
