Ramen Danbo Vancouver

Ramen Danbo

Eat ‘n About’s coverage of her Maui Food Adventures will return after this quick message 😉 Ramen Danbo has become one of AngryRussian and my favorite places to eat on our movie date nights (although we’ve really only been here twice).  The Vancouver location is within walking distance from 5th Avenue Cinemas, and is perfect for […]

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 […]

Burgoo

With the cooler weather we’ve been having lately, there was no better time to visit Burgoo.  I’ve never been before but had always heard good things, so I was excited to give them a try. Burgoo doesn’t take reservations.  We arrived at around 7:30pm and the place was pretty packed.  There were people waiting outside.  […]

Wang Ga Ma Restaurant

In my continued effort to find a Korean restaurant in the lower mainland that serves a Galbitang comparable to the one I had at New Seoul in the States, I’ve asked a Korean coworker for recommendations, and she suggested Wang Ga Ma in Coquitlam.  Fannypack was once again my partner in crime. The Seafood Pancake […]

Late Night @ Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant

After an evening downtown I had a congee craving so Wendy suggested we try Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant, an unassuming Chinese place along Kingsway that does a late night menu.  The menu is quite varied and has three tiers priced at $5.35, $6.45, and $6.95. We ordered a Plain Congee (Large) ($5.35) and it […]

Mangal Kiss Mid East BBQ

Ever find yourself daydreaming of your next vacation while you’re at work?  Wish you could magically transport yourself out of that cramped cubicle and escape to some exotic destination for some much-needed R & R?  What if I said you could indulge your fantasy on your next lunch break?  If you work downtown, Mangal Kiss […]

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… […]

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 […]
