Fondway Cafe - Matcha Cheesecake & Sandwich

Fondway Cafe

Fondway Cafe is a cute and spacious cafe that has opened up along the strip behind Metrotown mall.  There’s a bunch of new condos being built there which I guess makes it a good location.  It is also close to me so I have no complaints and made it a good choice for a long […]

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 […]

DAVIDsTEA Coffee Pu’erh Review

The latest concoction from DAVIDsTEA has got to be the ultimate in the fusion of Chinese and Western drink culture.  Coffee Pu’erh combines the traditional taste of Chinese pu’erh tea with the signature drink of the west by the addition of coffee beans.  I had a sniff of it in store and the notes of […]

JJ Bean

I’ve heard about JJ Bean from GRock a while ago, and I didn’t really know what the fuss was.  More googling however got me intrigued about their mocha, as it seems like they make the best one in town. My first visit was to the Main Street location, I didn’t try their mocha, as I […]

Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe

I’ve heard a lot about Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe, especially in magazines.  However it wasn’t until recently when GRock’s friend started working there as a baker that I’ve succumbed to lots more praises and recommendations from GRock. The final nail in the coffin was when GRock showed me a picture of this magical looking poached […]

Random Eats – Kyoto

Honestly, while in Japan, I never went into a meal or ate anything because I was hungry.  It was more because I HAD to eat it because I’m IN FREAKIN’ JAPAN.  It may be a while before I come back so I needed to eat everything I wanted to eat. Which will explain the insane […]
