Phnom Penh Review – Vancouver’s Famous Cambodian & Vietnamese Restaurant

Phnom Penh (or “Gum Bean” as it is referred to in Cantonese) is a legendary Vietnamese/Cambodian restaurant in Vancouver. We’ve been eating here for what seems like over ten years, so I’m not sure how we haven’t reviewed it yet! Since the days when Gary and I would visit his brother and sister here on […]

Maenam Review – Upmarket Thai Restaurant In Kitsilano

Located in heart of Kitsilano (West 4th & Cypress), casual-chic Maenam serves authentic Thai cuisine with innovative twists on centuries-old recipes. From family-style dining to rifts on Thai street food, Chef Angus An’s menu balances intense flavours with seasonal local products and sustainably harvested ingredients. With an impressive resume, like working with David Thompson at […]

Balilicious Modern Indonesian Restaurant Review

Formerly called Saté Satu — meaning ‘one satay’ — Balilicious Modern Indonesian restaurant is located on Cambie & West 19th Avenue in Vancouver. Batik and other Indonesian handicrafts are displayed throughout the small restaurant. A couple of pairs of colourful wooden clogs adorn the wall – a glimpse of Indonesia’s Dutch colonial past. Indonesia and […]

Cafe D’Lite Kitsilano Review – Malaysian & Singaporean Cuisine

South East Asian cuisine, more specifically Malaysian and Singaporean food, is some of my all time favourite fare. Having lived in the region when I was younger, the textures, tastes and aromas always evoke a comforting sense of nostalgia. One of the problems living in Vancouver (apart from the rain!) is the lack of great […]

Aree Thai Restaurant Review

Aree Thai Restaurant provides authentic Thai food in East Van’s Kingsway area.  Tuesdays to Sundays they offer $8.50 lunch specials from 11:30am – 3:00pm. Although carnivores will appreciate their meaty offerings, vegetarians and vegans can substitute any meat option for vegetables or tofu. Since Aree’s lunch specials are such a great deal, we both ordered […]

Tropika (Cambie) Review – South East Asian Feast

For my mother-in-law’s birthday a while ago, all nine of us headed to Tropika’s Cambie location for a South East Asian feast. Tropika has a few locations around the lower mainland, including one at Aberdeen Center in Richmond, and one in downtown Vancouver on Robson. They call themselves “Malaysian & Thai” restaurants, but they also […]

Charm Modern Thai Review

Our Charm Modern Thai Groupon was waiting patiently for us to redeem. Or was it Living Social, or Indulge Living? There are just too many of those group deal sites to keep track of. I find that we purchase deals, but end up forgetting about them until after they have expired. I don’t know…waste of […]

Sabhai Thai Restaurant Review (Sidney, BC)

Sabhai Thai Restaurant is probably the most popular restaurant in Sidney – even Victoria residents will often drive out here when they are craving Thai food. The restaurant is always packed, and when the weather’s nice and the sun is shining, their large patio is always full of eager customers. Part of the reason Sabhai […]

Bo Laksa King’s Bubbles And Bits Review

During our recent epic trip to Asia (HK, Macau, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam), a substantial duration of time was devoted to eating in the city-state of Singapore (the ultimate foodie nirvana, if you ask me). On numerous occasions, we gorged Anthony Bourdain-style, on delectable dishes such as nasi goreng, beef rendang, laksa, satay, and roti […]
