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 […]

Mr. Ho Wonton House

When it gets really cold I always crave a hot bowl of pho.  Last night was no exception.  But somehow we ended up at Mr. Ho Wonton House.  How did that happen??  Well blame me and my trait of easily distractedness.  As Hitman and I were going along Kingsway I got distracted by the neon […]

Dinner at Golden Sea City Restaurant: Snake Soup Starter!

Update:  This restaurant is now closed.

Dim Sum at Golden Sea City 金城

So when a chance finally came we went to one of her favorite places: Golden Sea City. Golden Sea City and its predecessor were favorites of ours.   […]

Aberdeen Centre Food Court Quickie

Nothing like grabbing a quick snack at the food court when you are starving. Fast, cheap, goes down fast and hopefully not-so-fast out. Wendy and I decided to pay a trip to Aberdeen Centre’s food court. I believe this is probably the best Asian food court, not because of the food offerings, but because of […]
