City 1 Cafe – Singaporean & Malaysian Cuisine Review

City 1 Cafe is a little Singaporean and Malaysian restaurant located in a strip mall (where Safeway is) on King Edward Avenue, just passed Oak Street. They’ve been open since December of last year and have been receiving positive reviews from diners. But what does Eating in Vancouver think about City 1 Cafe? Now remember, […]

Tamarind Hill North Vancouver Review

I know I’ve previously declared my love for South East Asian cuisine – mostly, because it’s delicious but also because the food summons a sense of nostalgia, having lived in Brunei when I was younger. Malaysian, Indonesian, Bruneian, Singaporean share many of the same dishes such as laksa, nasi and mee goreng, roti, murtabak, etc. […]

Mamak Malaysian Cafe Review

Located inside Pub 340, on Cambie Street in Gastown, we found Mamak Malaysian Cafe. Word on the street was that Chef Charles of the former Jonker Street cafe in Yaletown (now Fresh Bowl) created Mamak Cafe as the main kitchen of Pub 340. Always on the look out for great South East Asian fare – especially […]

Banana Leaf Malaysian Cuisine Fairview Review

The award-winning Banana Leaf (and Tropika) restaurants pretty much have a monopoly on Vancouver when it comes to Malaysian food. Banana Leaf Malaysian Cuisine has four locations in Vancouver, and their colourful decor and good prices attract many customers. The restaurants are so popular that they have been voted “Best Malaysian/ Best South East Asian” […]

Balilicious Modern Indonesian Restaurant Review

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 […]

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 […]

Bo Laksa King Review

We just returned from lunch at Bo Laksa King which was a perfect way to spice up this wet and dreary afternoon.  Bo Laksa King is a tiny restaurant inside Joyce-Way Food Market (4910 Joyce St. & Wellington), in East Vancouver. It’s run by Bo and his wife Tiffany, who are a warm and friendly […]
