Chewies - Chicken & Waffles

Chewies Coal Harbour

Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar is a Southern-style cuisine restaurant known for their oysters, but that’s not the reason for my visit.  I had a craving for Chicken and Waffles so having remembered that Chewies offer it on their menu, I took a trip down to their Coal Harbour location for lunch. This location had large windows all along the […]

EAT! Vancouver Food + Cooking Festival 2014

3 days.  15 hours.  Hundreds of booths, stages, and events.  This was our experience at EAT! Vancouver 2014: If you haven’t been to EAT! 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 […]

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 […]

Fat Duck Mobile Eatery Ltd

Here’s a review of a lunch I had on the go downtown earlier this week.  Quick lunch, quick review.  Fat Duck Mobile Eatery Ltd food truck parks outside of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Hamilton between Dunsmuir and Georgia.  Their menu items hover around $10.  I’ve really been digging the food cart thing as of […]

Solly’s Bagelry (W 7th Ave. location)

Wendy and I were looking for a quick snack around Broadway and Cambie, and Solly’s Bagelry looked like it fit the bill. Once inside things got a bit more interesting, as we could see that Solly’s wasn’t just a bagel place, but a full Jewish bakery.  As the sign says, they carry babka but we […]

Miura Waffle Milk Bar new location launch

Miura Waffle + Milk Bar has just moved to its new Main & Broadway digs and they kindly hosted a pre-launch tasting event for the folks who had written about them in the past.  Wendy reviewed the old downtown location a while back, so we got an invite and figured this time I could give […]

Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe

I’ve heard a lot about Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe, especially in magazines.  However it wasn’t until recently when GRock’s friend started working there as a baker that I’ve succumbed to lots more praises and recommendations from GRock. The final nail in the coffin was when GRock showed me a picture of this magical looking poached […]
