Highlights from CHFA West 2015

Hot off the heels of the Healthy Family Expo comes the trades-only Canadian Health Food Association‘s Conference and Tradeshow CHFA West and it was with pleasure and excitement that I was able to attend.  It’s always interesting to see what the upcoming trends are in the food world, and this year, it seems like anything […]

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 […]

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 […]
