Forage - Grilled Humboldt Squid

Dine Out Vancouver 2018: Forage

For my last Dine Out of the year we picked a $30 menu and decided on Forage.  This is not my first Forage rodeo but it was my first dine out with them. First a note about the service though- As it was dine out, we were restricted to a 1.5 hour dining period…this was […]

Biercraft Marinier Mussels

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: Biercraft Bistro

Kicking off Dine Out Vancouver this year for us was Biercraft Bistro.  I had always wanted to try Biercraft but always forgot about them, so when I saw that they were participating in Dine Out and offering a $30 menu, it was a go! The appetizer version of Biercraft’s Salt Spring Island Marinier Mussel and Kennebec Frites […]

Late Night @ Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant

After an evening downtown I had a congee craving so Wendy suggested we try Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant, an unassuming Chinese place along Kingsway that does a late night menu.  The menu is quite varied and has three tiers priced at $5.35, $6.45, and $6.95. We ordered a Plain Congee (Large) ($5.35) and it […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2014: L’Abattoir

L’Abattoir has successfully cinched its place in my heart for favorite restaurant.  Honestly, I’ve never thought I would name one as my favorite, but L’Abattoir has done just that. 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 […]

Birthday dinner #2 – forage

Forage was a restaurant I’ve always wanted to try so I took the opportunity of my birthday to ‘gently suggest’ to Fannypack to take me there on a separate occasion to celebrate (as that is our thing), so that brings us to birthday dinner #2! As we were quickly told by the extremely attentive server, […]

U & I Thai: Green Papaya Salad (Som Tum)

U & I Thai

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 picking […]

Chefe Daniel – Flavours of Portugal

We had made a mental note to stop by this neat looking little Portuguese place on Kingsway after seeing it while driving through the neighborhood.  There was no info about it online when we checked so we figured it must be new (apparently it’s been there for a while under a different name before being […]
