Big Orange

I’m glad there’s a Big Orange Juice Bar in Richmond Centre.  It’s close enough that I don’t have to travel into Alexandra Road area to get it.  They’re no Bubble World, but they satisfy the craving once in a while.

Bauhinia Restaurant 洋紫荊餐廳

Update: This restaurant is now closed. It seems like I’m on a HK-Style Milk Tea binge lately.  I crave for it every meal ever since Alleluia. Our restaurant choice this time was Bauhinia Restaurant.  It used to be on Saba Road but now it’s located in a little strip mall along Granville Ave. and St. […]

Summer Night Market 2009

So it’s the season for the Night Market again~  Boyfriend and I went on a Sunday night and just had our “dinner” there. Not sure if it’s because of the ‘recession’, but there were a lot less vendors.  There were quite a bit of empty tents, so in total there was only about 1.5 to […]

Alleluia Cafe 歡欣餐廳

Welcome to yet another review of Richmond’s rich resource in HK style cafes.  Today, we present to you Alleluia.  It is located on Westminster Hwy., a bit east of No. 3 Rd.   The parking situation was alright when we were there (about 7:30 PM) but I know without uncertainty that during lunch times it is […]

Starbucks Perfect Oatmeal

Some colleagues and I went to Starbucks for coffee break one day.  As I was hungry, I forgoed a drink and ordered their Perfect Oatmeal instead. What a mistake.  Now it was my first time to order this so I didn’t know what “choices” I have aside from the topping add-in.  The barista was probably […]

Battle of the Iced Coffees

Man oh man it’s been hot last week huh (guess that’s an understatement).  Nothing beats the heat better than an ice-cold coffee drink. Now I’ve never been a coffee drinker, but after trying that the Burger King Mocha Joe a few weeks ago, I’ve been addicted to it. So McDonalds now have the same type […]

Cafe de Waraku 和樂屋

Update: This restaurant has closed. Dinner with Fannypack again! Driving past Central Square I spotted a new restaurant right beside Excellent Tofu.  It’s called Cafe de Waraku and it appears to be a Japanese Style Spaghetti House.  However, having done some research on it, it so happens to be started in Singapore.  So Japanese style […]

Chiffon Chinese Cuisine 食坊

Update: This restaurant is now closed. The name might sound all fancy but it’s really just the ‘anglicized’ version of Eating Room. The restaurant is quite clean upon our entrance.  The lighting was good, floor seemed to be in clean and in good condition and the tables and chairs were placed in a tidy manner.  […]

Boston Steakhouse 波士頓扒房

Update Sep 13, 2010: This restaurant is now closed. In the sea of Asian restaurants in Richmond, it may be difficult to find one to return to on a regular basis.  My mom and her friends love to try every HK style cafe in the city as they pop up one by one.  The best […]

Chicco Cafe

Update:  This restaurant has closed. After our dinner at Toratatsu, it was still early out so we didn’t want to waste our trip to Downtown and took a walk down Robson.  By the time the shops were closing, we were ready for dessert again, so I took them to Chicco. I was introduced to this […]
