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 […]

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 […]

Torafuku Finding Nemo

Torafuku Vancouver

A while ago Travelzoo had another awesome dining deal and this time it was for the restaurant Torafuku in Chinatown.  Torafuku is a modern Japanese eatery and the owner/executive chef Clement Chan was a contestant on Top Chef Canada.  So I was really glad this deal appeared and again Fannypack was my eating partner.  For […]

Squid Ink Pasta with Garlic Prawns and Fiddleheads

Having been at the EAT! Vancouver festival for all three days, I was able to curate a lot of goodies from different vendors.  Tonight’s dinner involves two ingredients that we purchased. We’d never tried squid ink pasta before so when we saw Tonnarelli Seppia Nera (an egg based squid ink medium noodle) at the Bosa Foods stall, we bought a […]

Edible Canada Crispy Sweetbreads

Edible Canada at the Market

Travelzoo recently had a dinner-for-2 deal for Edible Canada in Granville Island.  We had both wanted to try this restaurant for a while now and missed it during Dine Out Vancouver this year, so I quickly snatched it up for a date with Fannypack.  This was one of the better value deals as you get […]

The Ascot – Restaurant Review

Update: This restaurant has closed. For our monthly gossip session, Fannypack and I visited The Ascot with a Groupon in hand.  As we approached the restaurant we were impressed by the swanky hipster-looking storefront.  However it did look out of place for its location, as it’s near Richards and W. Pender. Stepping in the hipster-factor […]

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 […]

Beacon Landing Seafood Restaurant

There are quite a lot of places to eat around Sidney actually.  SheShe and I were just lazy and didn’t want to walk far from our lodging, so we had a few meals at the MickeyD’s next door unfortunately. But we got all dressed up one night for a Wine & Cheese at the local […]

Romano’s Macaroni Grill @ Alderwood Mall

On a recent trip to Alderwood Mall in Lynnwood, we decided to have “lunch” (it was 3pm) at Romano’s Macaroni Grill.  Some of you may be familiar with this name as it is a franchised restaurant, and locally they have a location in Vancouver also. It was a particularly warm day so we decided to […]

Phnom Penh 金邊小館

After hearing so much about the chicken wings and Butter Beef at Phnom Penh, I was finally able to go to try them out!  I think we over-ordered though.  Way too much food for 2 people. Phnom Penh is a Cambodian/Vietnamese restaurant, but they also make food from other regions too as you shall see. […]
