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 […]

5 Awesome Food Experience Gift Ideas

Can you believe the holidays are almost here?!  If you’re still looking for some last minute gift ideas, you’ve come to the right place! This year AngryRussian and I wanted to do more experience gifts rather than material gifts, so what’s better than to look at some food-related experiences?! Now these are in no particular […]

Earl's Brunch Happy Hour

Brunch Happy Hour at Earl’s Kitchen + Bar

This month, I went to Earl’s Happy Hour Brunch twice.  Both times were at the newly opened, BEAUTIFUL Station Square location.  Both times were glorious. Brunch is every Saturday and Sunday and holiday, and Brunch Happy Hour is from open to noon on those days.  During that time, all of the brunch food options are […]

Como Taperia

For Fannypack’s birthday this year I took her to Como Taperia on Main Street.  I had passed by this place many times and had always wanted to try it, so this was a great opportunity to do so! Como Taperia doesn’t take reservations unless you’re a big party, so I emailed the restaurant prior to see how busy […]

Stanley Park Restaurant & Brewpub

Stanley Park Restaurant & Brewpub is a new restaurant that opened just a couple weeks ago by the JRG group in Stanley Park. It takes over the space that used to house one of my favourite restaurants- The Fish House, so it’s huge.  They have a large selection of Stanley Park Brewing craft beer and quite […]
