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. Easter Sunday we decided to have a relaxing day and head to Rocky Point Park.  On the […]

EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival 2014

3 days.  15 hours.  Hundreds of booths, stages, and events.  This was our experience at EAT! Vancouver 2014: If you haven’t been to EAT! Vancouver—you should go!—it is the ultimate consumer food show.  Wander the aisles with your fellow foodies grazing on samples, stuffing your bags with bargain priced fine foods, and schmoozing with celebrity […]

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 […]

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 […]

Ah Meow aka Choco Cat Cafe 啊貓地攤

Hitman and I first heard of the concept of cat cafes about a year ago.  He read about them in one of those free daily papers and became really excited, and we planned on visiting one in Asia someday. Then we sorta forgot about it for a while. Then, on Fannypack’s and my last day in Seoul, […]

Montana’s Cookhouse

Hitman won a pretty fab prize pack from work (some Safety thing lol) and one of the prizes was a $50 gift card for any restaurant in the Cara network, namely Swiss Chalet, Milestone’s, Montana’s, Kelsey’s, Harvey’s, etc. He originally wanted to go to Milestones, but the closest one is not close at all…there’s downtown, […]

Cookies of Course

I’ve recently joined a bunch of those “Daily Deal” sites and I must say, I was skeptic at first but it’s been treating me pretty well.  They are usually very good deals and the coupon for Cookies of Course was one of my first purchases from Groupon.  The coupon allowed for 2 dozen cookies for […]

Manzano European Bakery

One of Boyfriend’s favorite places to eat at Metrotown when working is a little bakery called Manzano. The usual suspects are here, cakes, cheesecakes, cookies, pastries, etc.  Aside from those, they also bake specialty breads and makes sandwiches from scratch.  That’s what Boyfriend likes to get but they’re a bit pricey…$6 each approximately. Well I […]
