Hee Rae Dung Korean Chinese Restaurant 喜來燈

When MarathonMan from Calgary came to visit, GRock, L, him and I all went for dinner at Hee Rae Dung, which is a Korean-style Chinese restaurant.  This means, no Korean BBQ, no fear of smelling like it after! This is a restaurant that MarathonMan’s family, who’s Korean, frequent (he does not speak a word of […]

Graze Restaurant

Update:  This restaurant has closed. I must say, Graze Restaurant is making its way up there to becoming one of my top vegetarian restaurant in Vancouver This would be my second time heading to Graze Restaurant for dinner. I wouldn’t say I was wow-ed the first time, although it really wasn’t bad at all. However, […]

Victoria Weekend Trip Part 1 – The Mint

Howdy, it’s Hitman here to start off this first post of a series where we’re going to review several restaurants we dined at during a recent trip to Victoria for my sister’s wedding.  Victoria is notoriously hit and miss for the food scene, and I’ve had my share of misses there but thankfully this trip […]

Arashiyama 嵐山

One of our excursion during out time in Kyoto was to the district of Arashiyama 嵐山.  It was a touristy, extremely picturesque destination with a lovely river running between two small mountains.  A bridge connects the two sides. A semi-hidden attraction is the natural bamboo forest.  For L and I it took a little bit to […]

Tsuki no Shizuku 月の雫 – Shin-Osaka

I absolutely LOVED, LOVED LOOOOOOOOOVED our first dinner/meal in Japan.  As we arrived quite late in the day in Osaka, we decided to spend the night at a hotel near the airport in the city of Shin-Osaka.  After we checked in, we walked around in search for food.  We were hungry!! Just across the intersection […]

The Foundation – Take 2!!

And it was definitely a plus.  With more people we were able to order a pitcher […]

Koon Bo Restaurant 冠寶

Koon Bo is one of those restaurants that if you don’t know about it, you would never think to go there.  After all, the location pretty much sucks, the parking sucks, the decor sucks, the waiting area sucks, you get the drift.  So why is it so popular?  Of course it’s the food.  It’s not […]

West Lake Vietnamese Restaurant

Update Jan 3, 2013: This restaurant is now closed. Boyfriend and I enjoy going to West Lake because they’re open late, and they have Afternoon Tea/Late Night menus that includes a drink. They also make decent food and service is pretty ok, considering it’s a Asian-ran restaurant. Prices are among the best in Vietnamese food […]

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 […]
