Picture of the Long Flight at Sea Cider Farm & Ciderhouse, Victoria, BC

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 […]

Salty’s Beach House – Penticton, BC

After a day of wine tasting, we headed to Penticton for dinner at Salty’s Beach House.  Salty’s Beach House is located directly across from Lake Okanagan in Downtown Penticton and if you get a patio seat you have great views of the lake and beach.  As the weather forecasted rain that day, we had reserved […]

two pizzas from Real Things Pizza in Naramata, BC

Real Things Pizza – Naramata, BC

We decided to take it easy on the first night of our Naramata stay and ordered pizza delivery from Real Things Pizza.  Their website is basic but kooky, their “Meet Our Employees” page is especially interesting!  Their worker base seems to either be entirely made up of kids or there’s something in the water here that makes […]

Cannery Brewing Beer Flight

Cannery Brewing – Penticton, BC

Since we already have vacation time booked and BC has been doing pretty well, we decided to go with some friends to Naramata.   On the way we stopped by Cannery Brewing in Penticton for a break and a bite.  And also a drink. We started with a flight ($8) as usual.  I really like their Sunblink […]
