L'Abattoir Avocado Gimlet

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: L’Abattoir

I have been to L’Abattoir about 5 or 6 times now and each time I have been extremely impressed.  I rave about them all the time!  So when I told CDizzle that L’Abattoir’s Dine Out menu was out, she promptly made reservations and a dinner date was set. I always start my night at L’Abattoir with […]

Biercraft Marinier Mussels

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: Biercraft Bistro

Kicking off Dine Out Vancouver this year for us was Biercraft Bistro.  I had always wanted to try Biercraft but always forgot about them, so when I saw that they were participating in Dine Out and offering a $30 menu, it was a go! The appetizer version of Biercraft’s Salt Spring Island Marinier Mussel and Kennebec Frites […]

Juniper Restaurant Holiday Cobbler cocktail

Juniper Restaurant

Update:  This restaurant has closed. My pick this year for my annual birthday dinner with Fannypack was Juniper Restaurant in Chinatown.  I was intrigued with their huge gin cocktail menu and Fannypack sure sounded excited when I suggested the place so off we went!

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 […]

Sushi California Coquitlam

Sushi California Coquitlam

Sushi California is a chain of Korean-run sushi restaurants that offer pretty decent portion sizes for not a lot of money.  It’s one of AngryRussian’s favorite places to eat actually.  We always go to the Coquitlam location on North Road. They remind me a lot of Sushi Garden in a lot of ways.  The pricing, […]
