Royal Dinette Wagyu Beef Tartare

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: Royal Dinette

Royal Dinette was one of our two $40 picks this dine out season.  In 2016 they were voted “Best New Restaurant” in Vancouver Magazine and also “Best New Restaurant in Canada” in enRoute Magazine, so that sounds promising right?! I really liked the ambiance of Royal Dinette…they had a really warm glow and a very […]

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 […]

Busan Daeji Gukbap

I had originally wanted to take AngryRussian to Hee Rae Dang for his first non-Korean-BBQ-Korean dinner experience.  However it was just our luck that Hee Rae Dang was closed for renovations until- get this- the next day, so we kind of just walked around the area where Insadong is located and then I settled on […]

Food Cart Fest Vancouver

One of my running days with Fannypack is on Sundays.  It just so happens that every Sunday, there’s a Food Cart Fest Vancouver held at the Olympic Village.  So naturally we made plans to go after our weekly Sunday morning run. It costs $2 to enter unless you’re a certain demographic (Vancity member or food […]

Bob Likes Thai Food – Main St.

No, this restaurant is not a white man’s take on Thai cuisine.  Bob Likes Thai Food is actually run by a Mr. Tai Keattivanichvily, and seems to have got its name as randomly as I got mine (for those wondering, I was wearing a red tie/white shirt get-up for work once, and combined with my […]

Macau Cafe at Parker Place 澳門街

Once in a while, I get a hankering for some good old Hong Kong comfort food.  These foods come in the form of fried noodles, congee, baked spaghetti, etc., just a smorgasbord of items all accompanied by ice-cold Hong Kong style milk tea, coffee, or a mix of both (a wonderful invention from my culture).  […]

Paseo Caribbean Restaurant

There are a lot of little eateries in the States that get famous by word-of-mouth.  Paseo Caribbean Restaurant is definitely one of them.  Mom and I were told by Cousin D to visit this place, and to visit it early.  So the next morning, Aunt Aggy, Uncle Walken, Mom and I woke up (relatively) early […]

Fliptop Filipino Fusion food truck

A friend of mine has been pointing out lately the lack of Filipino food on our site, so this one’s for you pandeSally.  Fliptop Filipino Fusion food truck (Phew!  Try saying that five times fast.  Or just once for that matter!) came onto our radar a month or so ago, but since they tend to […]

Beggar’s Chicken @ Suhang Restaurant 蘇杭人家

Going way, way back to our Mid-Autumn Festival family celebration, Hitman and I had dinner with my parents and relatives at Suhang Restaurant. It was his first time for Shanghainese food. The draw for me was that my uncle had pre-ordered the Beggar’s Chicken and I was excited to see and try it.  I hadn’t […]

Mui Ngo Gai

One time while driving down Kingsway I noticed the bright awning of Mui Ngo Gai.  That led me to the website address they posted on their window.  I thought it was interesting that a Vietnamese restaurant that’s not part of a chain would have a website setup. So I logged on to check them out. […]
