Vancouver FanClub Menu Tasting

Late last month, my colleague Sean Neild and I were invited to a menu tasting at the Vancouver FanClub downtown. Although we had both been to the venue previously for media events (here and here), we were interested in learning more about what diners can expect at this relatively new establishment. For those that can remember […]

Nong Chinese Restaurant – ChineseBites Signature Dishes Tour #7

On Oct 3rd, I met up with the regular ChineseBites crew to try a few signature dishes at Nong Chinese Restaurant right at 41st and Granville Street.

StackHouse Burger Bar Review – Gourmet Burgers In Vancouver

Located in the GED – Granville Entertainment District – StackHouse Burger Bar is a stylish hamburger hub offering gourmet burgers in an alluringly casual-sleek environment.

Vij’s Rangoli Restaurant Review

Whenever there’s a long lineup outside world renowned Vij’s Restaurant (which seems to be all the time!) its sister restaurant Rangoli, right next door, is the perfect alternative.

Cheesecake Etc. Review

Whenever we crave cheesecake, we always gravitate towards Cheesecake Etc. My sister-in-law first introduced us to this little gem years ago when we’d visit her from Victoria. Tucked away on South Granville, just before the Granville Street Bridge, lies this quaint little dessert spot. It’s a great date night place, with dark and romantic lighting, […]

Paul’s Place Omelettery Review

Paul’s Place Omelettery is, as you would expect, famous for their omelettes. The restaurant always seems to receive great reviews on food blogs, Urbanspoon, Yelp – and even the Lonely Planet ranked it #17 out of 600 things to do in Vancouver. With such high accolades, we decided to check out Paul’s. With its green […]

Twisted Fork Bistro Review

Under the bright lights of Granville Street in downtown Vancouver’s entertainment district, The Twisted Fork Bistro offers “classic French dining made simple”. After hearing raving reviews about the restaurant’s epic brunch offerings, we decided to check it out one Saturday afternoon. The bistro is long, narrow, and calmly lit, creating a relaxing atmosphere. Its high-beamed […]

Cactus Club (Broadway & Granville) Review

The Cactus Club stepped up their game when Iron Chef, Rob Feenie signed on as their “Food Concept Architect”. I admire his ambition to use as many locally sourced products as possible. It’s better for the environment, supports the local economy and is more nutritious, since produce is picked later. We stopped by the Cactus […]
