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 […]

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 […]

L’Éclair de Génie Vancouver Opening

Vancouver now has its very own L’Éclair de Génie boutique and I couldn’t be happier!!  I first tried eclairs from L’Éclair de Génie on a family trip to Paris and fell in love.  They are presented artistically and each and everyone of them were so beautiful that it was actually hard for us to choose just […]

Dine Out Vancouver 2017: Catch 122 Cafe Bistro

Catch 122 Cafe Bistro was my sixth and final restaurant for this season’s Dine Out Vancouver Festival. Yes…I went a little nuts this year but all because AngryRussian hasn’t done any before and he wanted to do 4, so that was that. Catch 122 was a $30 menu restaurant and I took my parents there. […]

Bistro Pastis

There was a fantastic deal on Travelzoo for Bistro Pastis, and having had a good experience there for Dine Out Vancouver this year, I quickly snatched it up and enlisted Fannypack to go with me. One reason I like Bistro Pastis was because their portions are pretty decent for a French restaurant.  For my appetizer […]

Fat Duck Mobile Eatery Ltd

Here’s a review of a lunch I had on the go downtown earlier this week.  Quick lunch, quick review.  Fat Duck Mobile Eatery Ltd food truck parks outside of the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Hamilton between Dunsmuir and Georgia.  Their menu items hover around $10.  I’ve really been digging the food cart thing as of […]

L’Abattoir

Wendy had heard good things about L’Abattoir, a French/West Coast restaurant so we trekked to Gastown to try it out. It was amazing! I had planned to take a shot of the signage when we left but forgot so this one’s stolen from the restaurant’s website. Once inside our jackets were hung and we were led […]
