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 […]

Thierry Chocolates - Pistachio Opera Cake

Thierry Chocolates Vancouver

This year, instead of getting one big birthday cake, I asked to go to Thierry Chocolates instead to get a couple treats.  Thierry had always been on my list and since we’re gonna be in the area anyways after dinner at Verre, why not?! Thierry is quite roomy with seats instead and a sort of […]

Verre Restaurant - Bone in shortrib

Verre Restaurant Birthday Dinner

So this year for some reason, AngryRussian forgot that we usually keep our birthday restaurants a secret and told me that he’s taking me to Verre at Coal Harbour.  When I said “Oh so I guess we’re not doing the secret restaurant thing anymore?” he said “Oh shoot!”. Anyways, I had been interested with Verre […]

Cafe Salade de Fruits

Cafe Salade de Fruits

This year Fannypack and I did birthday dinner a little different.  We didn’t tell each other where we’re taking them so it was fun to see what we came up with.  It was also hard though since…we’ve both been to so many restaurants that it might be a repeat! We did well though.   I took her to Como […]
