Trattoria Burnaby - Linguine Vongole

Trattoria Burnaby

Trattoria is one of many of Glowbal group’s ventures.  The original location is in Vancouver but they’ve expanded to a second location in Burnaby for a few years now.  AngryRussian and I decided to go for their “Tratt Tuesday” which means any of their pastas for $13! We made it in time for Trattoria’s “cocktail […]

La Terrazza

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: La Terrazza

La Terrazza had been on my list of restaurant to try for a few years now and I’ve never gotten around to it until now!  This was our second $40 Dine Out pick and last of AngryRussian and my four dine outs…I have one more to go with my parents…yes I went crazy this year. La […]

Campagnolo - Ricotta Gnudi

Campagnolo

A lot of my dining choices have to do with Masterchef.  The choice to go to Campagnolo was no exception.  In one episode, the challenge was to make gnudi, which is a ricotta-based gnocchi-like Italian dish, except there’s no potatoes in it.  I’ve never heard of gnudi before and it sounded delicious, so off to Google I […]

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 […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2014: Ask for Luigi

For my third DOVF event this year, Hitman and I were invited by Sharon of Eat, Drink, Travel to join her at Ask for Luigi. Theirs is the $28 menu. I was especially excited to try their homemade pasta. It was very very small in there, and only had one bathroom. Good thing we made […]

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, […]
