Coffee Monster

Coffee Monster

I remember wanting to visit Coffee Monster for a while now but it had fallen off my radar, but feeling like dessert one night, I googled what’s in the area and Coffee Monster popped up.  So AngryRussian and I took a walk there to see what they had to offer at 10:00pm on a Friday […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2015: Wildebeest

I’ll be honest with you.  Wildebeest was not on my list of restaurants to try after looking at the menu.  The only thing that looked remotely interesting to me was the Bison Carpaccio.  But I DID tell Fannypack to pick the restaurants and for once she did!  So I bit my tongue and went with […]

Beta5 Cream Puffs

I’ve heard so much about Beta5 cream puffs that one day I finally decided to head down there with TDog to try them out.  The kitchen is located in an industrial area (fittingly called Industrial Ave.).  If not for Google maps and Beta5’s sandwich board, the store would be easy to miss.  They have dedicated […]

Birthday dinner #3 – Locals Restaurant at the Old House

We spent the holidays over on Vancouver Island this year.  There didn’t seem to be too many fine dining choices in the Comox Valley area, but it was recommended we go to Locals Restaurant in Courtenay, so for my official birthday dinner celebration with Hitman that’s where we went.  They’re known for sourcing their food locally […]

U & I Thai

MKFYMUUYP86U It’s very difficult to get Fannypack to make a choice…with me anyways. However for her birthday I finally got her to choose a place to eat.  She ended up picking U & I Thai in Cambie so a date was set! We were supposed to pick a dish each but I of course ended up […]

Handi Cuisine of India (Burnaby)

Before we get to Handi Cuisine of India I’d like to say a few words about lazymeal.  For those of you not yet familiar with lazymeal, it’s an online food ordering platform that is focused on recommending the tastiest meals in greater Vancouver.  It’s simple, just punch in your postal code and peruse the menus […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2013: Judas Goat Taberna

Update: This restaurant has closed. Wendy and I managed to secure a reservation on Dine Out Vancouver‘s opening night this year for one of the more intriguing of the $18 menu hosts; Judas Goat Taberna in Gastown.  For those unfamiliar with the Dine-Out concept, it’s a 17-day annual food festival where many local restaurants set […]

Tsuki no Shizuku 月の雫 – Shin-Osaka

I absolutely LOVED, LOVED LOOOOOOOOOVED our first dinner/meal in Japan.  As we arrived quite late in the day in Osaka, we decided to spend the night at a hotel near the airport in the city of Shin-Osaka.  After we checked in, we walked around in search for food.  We were hungry!! Just across the intersection […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2010: The Refinery

For my last Dine-out experience of 2010, we went to a place called The Refinery which is located on Granville. It’s a very small restaurant located on top of Sip Lounge (I think they’re owned by the same people).  However it has quite an intimate setting and we were impressed. For my appetizer I picked […]
