Pho Hoang

Update:  This restaurant is closed. Wendy and I made an unplanned pit-stop to refuel with a nice big steaming bowl of pho during a recent drive through Vancouver, and Pho Hoang was the first one we passed.  The signs on the door were covered in awards from the Westender and four or five Golden Plate […]

Lickerish Lounge

Some friends headed out to celebrate a couple of birthdays on Saturday and decided to have the dinner and pre-drinks at Lickerish Lounge on Davie St.  Neither of us has been here but we have heard of it; the paintings of major urban music figures on the walls were what came to mind immediately.  We […]

Wings Pub & Grill on Kingsway

L and I felt like wings and beer after a swim.  Actually, we went swimming just so we can have wings and beer afterwards.  She lives really close to Wings, and her place has a pool, 1+1=2! We didn’t realize it was the first night of the restart of UFC though, so basically when we […]

The occasion is my mom’s birthday. She really enjoyed it last year and we were looking forward to it again. My mom is usually picky (and at […]

The Fish House at Stanley Park

Update: This restaurant has closed. The Fish House is one of our most favorite restaurants.  We like it because they always have coupons in Entertainment Book, and even without the coupon, the prices are not too hard to swallow. They have two dining areas.  This is the lighter, brighter side.  The other side is more […]

Dine-out Vancouver 2008: The Cat’s Meow

Update: The Cat’s Meow is now closed. This is actually from way back in January.  We went for DOV at The Cat’s Meow which is located in Granville Island. This was one of the restaurants offering a $25 menu. The ambiance of this restaurant is like a lounge, with tvs located throughout the bar for […]
