Sahm Gook Jih Palace – Edmonds, WA

Whenever I venture to the states to visit Aunt Aggy and Uncle Walken, I always ask that they take me for Korean food since I believe they actually have a better selection of casual Korean restaurants down there in the Washington area.  This time they took us to Sahm Gook Jih Palace which is new […]

Hee Rae Dung Korean Chinese Restaurant 喜來燈

When MarathonMan from Calgary came to visit, GRock, L, him and I all went for dinner at Hee Rae Dung, which is a Korean-style Chinese restaurant.  This means, no Korean BBQ, no fear of smelling like it after! This is a restaurant that MarathonMan’s family, who’s Korean, frequent (he does not speak a word of […]

Private Home Chinese Cuisine 一点心意

Having moved out of Richmond for a while now, I must admit, I really miss the quality and quantity of good Asian restaurants within the city.  Now, when I want good Shanghai or Szechuan food, I have to drive across the bridge to get it and time my way back just so I won’t get […]

longtail kitchen – River Market @ Westminster Quay

After the previous week’s pretty negative experience at Wild Rice Wendy and I braved the River Market once again to test longtail kitchen out.  A kind of humourous aside here: when I Googled “Longtail Kitchen” to give them a link in this article, the self-written description under their result says, “best restaurant in New Westminster” […]

Little Garden Chinese Cuisine 十里香 -Bellevue, WA

Many times when I visit Aunt Aggy and Uncle Walken in the States, they take me to new restaurants they’ve discovered.  This time, they took mom and I to Little Garden, a mixed Chinese restaurant in Bellevue.  I say “mixed” because they offer Shanghai style, Hunan style, Szechuan style; all different styles of Chinese food. […]

Pho Boi Kingsway

Pho Boi: A Taste of Attitude (Burnaby location)

  Wendy was quite excited to spot the transition of Pho Hoa on Kingsway to its new incarnation, Pho Boi: A Taste of Vietnam about a week ago.  We agreed to try it ASAP.  It seems this chain has its roots in Victoria, so in hindsight that should have been a red flag right there… […]

U & I Thai take 2

Wendy decided to take advantage of the Living Social voucher this evening so that I could try U & I Thai for myself.  It was busy when we arrived but luckily Wendy had made reservations and we were seated immediately.  They had the place done up nicely for Christmas with ornaments and wreaths etc. We […]

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 […]

Mr. Ho Wonton House

When it gets really cold I always crave a hot bowl of pho.  Last night was no exception.  But somehow we ended up at Mr. Ho Wonton House.  How did that happen??  Well blame me and my trait of easily distractedness.  As Hitman and I were going along Kingsway I got distracted by the neon […]

Bo Laksa King’s Bubbles & Bits

I was pretty surprised and excited when my Dad told me that there’s a place called Bo Laksa King which serves traditional Myanmar cuisine here in Vancouver.  Up until quite recently Myanmar has been very closed off to the world and so I didn’t know we had any sort of Burmese community here.  But, Vancouver […]
