Nautical Nellies Steak & Seafood House – Victoria, BC

I always try to scope out a buck-a-shuck Happy Hour menu when we travel.  For our Victoria trip I found Nautical Nellies Steak & Seafood House which is right by the water.  Their Happy Hour menu is from 3pm-5:30pm everyday! Nautical Nellies has more of a old-school steakhouse vibe.  There’s dark wood everywhere and an […]

Pho Edmonds

I have no idea why it’s taken me so long to write about Pho Edmonds.  They are AngryRussian and my favorite Pho restaurant in the world. We come here at least once a week and order the same things mostly every time (well, AngryRussian does anyways). They are a small family-run business located on Edmonds […]

Canoe Brewpub Happy Hour – Victoria, BC

AngryRussian and I decided to only have dinner during Happy Hour as we love appies anyways and eating early gives us more time to digest! Within walking distance to where we were staying was Canoe Brew Pub right by the water and they had a Happy Hour 7 days a week! Their Happy Hour menu […]

Jam Cafe Brunch – Victoria, BC

I’ve never been inclined to wait in long lineups for brunch.  Don’t get me wrong, I love a good brunch but standing in long lineups just because a restaurant wants to create hype but not doing reservations just doesn’t entice me at all.  Jam Cafe is one of these restaurants to me. However, since we […]

Category 12 Brewing – Victoria, BC

There are TONS of craft breweries over in Victoria so that’s right up AngryRussian’s alley!  First stop after arriving into town was Category 12 Brewing! As usual we started with a flight to share.  I don’t drink that much beer and AngryRussian gets to try out a bunch before he settles on a pint!  or […]

Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse – Victoria, BC

Back in October when it was relatively ok to travel within the province, AngryRussian and I took our Anniversary trip over to Victoria.  It’s been a while since both of us have been there so this would be a relaxing easy trip for us! I wanted to give Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse a visit as […]

Kissa Tanto Vancouver - Octopus Salad

Birthday Dinner at Kissa Tanto Restaurant – Vancouver, BC

For my birthday dinner this year, AngryRussian took me to Kissa Tanto in Vancouver to celebrate. Kissa Tanto does Japanese/Italian fusion cuisine and while I’m usually weary of fusion, upon inspecting the menu I decided this would be a unique experience! First drinks!  I ordered the Midori Sour ($14) as I love melon flavor and egg […]

Instant Pot Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup Recipe

Taiwanese Beef Noodle soup is one of my absolute favourite dishes to eat.  The soup is always so hearty and I love the pickled mustard that goes along with it. Now I’ve always assumed that this noodle soup is super complicated and takes a long time to make (HOW many ingredients do I need to […]

Chinatown BBQ - Roast Pork & Duck Combo Plate

Chinatown BBQ Vancouver

It had been forever since I’ve had Cantonese barbequed crispy pork and roast duck ever since my parents and I moved out of Richmond.  I had a craving for it so took DaddyO out for lunch and he suggested Chinatown BBQ in…well, Chinatown! My parents regularly pick up roast pork or roast duck from this […]

St. Lawrence Vancouver - Braised Lamb Shoulder

St. Lawrence Restaurant Vancouver

This year for AngryRussian’s birthday I took him to St. Lawrence Restaurant for dinner.  I had always wanted to try this place but have heard that the waiting list is quite long, so never looked into it.  Now with COVID reopening status, it seemed so much easier to get a reservation in due time so […]
