The Flying Pig Olympic Village

Finally we got a summer!  So I took Momsies to The Flying Pig for their Happy…er…’Appy Hour.  It was a good deal.  Food were $6 and drinks (house red or white wine, or house beer) were $4.75.  We went to the Olympic Village location as it was walking distance. We had originally wanted the steamed […]

Late Night @ Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant

After an evening downtown I had a congee craving so Wendy suggested we try Congee Noodle King Seafood Restaurant, an unassuming Chinese place along Kingsway that does a late night menu.  The menu is quite varied and has three tiers priced at $5.35, $6.45, and $6.95. We ordered a Plain Congee (Large) ($5.35) and it […]

Birthday dinner #3 – Locals Restaurant at the Old House

We spent the holidays over on Vancouver Island this year.  There didn’t seem to be too many fine dining choices in the Comox Valley area, but it was recommended we go to Locals Restaurant in Courtenay, so for my official birthday dinner celebration with Hitman that’s where we went.  They’re known for sourcing their food locally […]

Insadong Coquitlam & Hmart Bakery

We actually had my birthday dinner the day before my birthday, since Dark Table wasn’t open the day of.  So the day of, we went out for a less planned out but no less extravagant dinner.  But it didn’t start out that way… At first, Hitman wanted to take me to the rice cake cafe […]

Cork and Fin

Update: This restaurant is now closed. It was Mom’s birthday this month so Pretty Sis and I took her and some other family members to a place interestingly called Cork and Fin in Gastown.  I guess by that name it means they specialize in wines and seafood?? They are a participant of the Let’s Go […]

Home-cooking: Steamed Clams in Chinese Wine

Boyfriend and I chose to splurge on a home-cooked dinner one night.  We both love shellfish, and they seem easy enough to prepare, so that’s what we had. Besides clams I really didn’t want to have to buy anything extra, but most of the recipes online call for dry white wine, which we don’t have.  […]

Cafe de Waraku 和樂屋

Update: This restaurant has closed. Dinner with Fannypack again! Driving past Central Square I spotted a new restaurant right beside Excellent Tofu.  It’s called Cafe de Waraku and it appears to be a Japanese Style Spaghetti House.  However, having done some research on it, it so happens to be started in Singapore.  So Japanese style […]

Red Star Seafood Restaurant 鴻星

I’ve had these pictures for quite a while…probably a month or more. For that amount of time, it’s a miracle that Red Star is still operating. Anyways, this is another dim sum post. As the visit was quite some time ago, I’ve since went again and so there will be pictures from both visits. Both […]

Anthony’s Restaurant at Squalicum Harbor

Welcome to the last part of our US Day Trip Trilogy.  After our short and sweet visits to Burger King and Auntie Anne’s, we wrapped up our trip with a visit to Anthony’s Restaurant.  It is located in Downtown Bellingham! (Yes, there’s such a thing!)  Honestly, I think that without a GPS, it would’ve been […]

Negative Space 黑白香

Update May 2, 2011: This restaurant is now closed. It was dinner with Fannypack again today.  As usual, I had to pick the place to go to.  Having passed by Negative Space Chinese Restaurant at Pacific Plaza one day on my way to Berry Good, I chose that place. It is located right at the […]
