Thierry Chocolates - Pistachio Opera Cake

Thierry Chocolates Vancouver

This year, instead of getting one big birthday cake, I asked to go to Thierry Chocolates instead to get a couple treats.  Thierry had always been on my list and since we’re gonna be in the area anyways after dinner at Verre, why not?! Thierry is quite roomy with seats instead and a sort of […]

Cake’Ya

I forgot where I read about Cake’Ya.  It’s a tiny little operation located in Port Moody that makes a small selection of Japanese (Okinawan) goodies.  Small selection but each type of goody comes in an assortment of flavors.

Dine Out Vancouver 2014: L’Abattoir

I made Fannypack come with me for their $38 Dine Out Vancouver menu.  In my opinion this was one of the better bang-for-your-buck restaurants as an […]
