Wild Rice – The Good, The Bad, and The Meh

Wendy’s been spending a bit of time down at the River Market at New Westminster Quay, and with me not having been at all yet we decided to go for dinner at Wild Rice.  I vaguely remembered having heard good things about Wild Rice restaurant, and I know it serves fairly healthy food, so it […]

Guacamole Recipe – Healthy and Addictive

Mexican food is in my top 5 national cuisines, so you bet your cojones I’ve had my share of guacamole.  And out of all that guacamole, this healthy recipe handed down from my mother (and slightly tweaked by me) is the best guacamole recipe I’ve tried.  Better than any restaurant, better than any recipe.  Yes, […]

Sal y Limon

People are saying good things about Sal y Limon (as you can probably tell from the banner above), a little Mexican joint nestled between a pizza shack and a bubble tea place in a small plaza on Kingsway and Fraser.  I remember back when I lived in this area another quirky “Mexican” place occupied this […]

El Pulgarcito

We were on the block of Hastings which El Pulgarcito inhabits because we were trying to get into Bo Laksa King for a late lunch, another authentic foreign food experience that we reviewed.  You can read our review of Bo Laksa here.  Alas, that day we arrived during Bo Laksa’s mid-afternoon closing period in the […]

Victoria Weekend Trip Part 3 – Hernande’z Cocina

Update: This restaurant has closed. For our last meal in Victoria we went to another rather odd location, Hernande’z Cocina, for Central American food.  This is apparently as close as you’ll get to a traditional Salvadorean cocina here in BC, with two sides of a mall hallway doubling for a rustic village market stall.  Well, […]

Magda’s Restaurant

Update:  This restaurant has closed. Armed with a WagJag voucher, Hitman and I hit up Magda’s Restaurant on Fraser as Hitman was very interested in trying authentic Latin/Venezuelan food and looking up reviews, that seems to be the case here. Magda’s certainly has a very warm family restaurant feel to it. The servers were very […]

Surrey Fusion Fest

Anyone else went to the Surrey Fusion Fest over the summer?  It was held over the weekend of July 16-17 and it’s basically a mini world cuisine/cultural event that included many food stalls and cultural presentations such as Korean drumming, belly-dancing, etc.  The big-ticket event was the 9pm show Sunday night featuring Jay Sean.  Bedouin […]

Las Margaritas

I think the main reason why L, J and I went to Las Margaritas this day really was to have their margaritas.  L had been raving about them all the time so finally we decided on a day to go. I do like Mexican food.  After that time at Bandidas, I liked it even more.  […]

Bandidas Taqueria

I had drove past Bandidas Taqueria quite a few times and it was last Christmas that I’ve mentioned to L and Jube that we should try it.  However this visit was with neither of them, but with GRock, purely because of our mutual love for sangrias. It was a very casual place, which was funny […]

Chapinlandia Guatemalan Restaurant

Update: This restaurant is now closed. Wendy and I really enjoy coming to Washington States many times a year.  One is to get away from the city, and more importantly, we love the deals that can be found at the malls and outlets!  We also get to try things that are not available back home […]
