As any food lover will attest to, one of the best things about Vancouver’s culinary scene is the diversity of choice. Feeling like a a piping hot bowl of pho or ramen? We got it. Got a craving for authentic dim sum or sushi? We’ve got both in spades. When the great team behind VANEATS […]

Pizzeria Barbarella Review

Pizza pie man extraordinaire, Terry Deane, sold his popular ah-Beetz pizza parlour in Abbotsford and opened a shop in Vancouver called Pizzeria Barbarella. Paying homage to his family, he named his latest restaurant after his mother, Barabara Deane, who passed away at the end of last year. We were eagerly anticipating the opening of his […]

Congee Noodle House Review

We visit Congee Noodle House quite often in Vancouver, so I’m surprised that we’ve never previously reviewed the restaurant. One of the reasons we like CNH is it’s a lot closer than driving to Richmond for some quick Chinese food. On this particular visist we ordered take-out of some of our usual favourite dishes. Located […]

If you’re a banh mi fan and live in Vancouver, then you’ve most likely been to a Ba Le location. There are three of these […]

Burgoo Main Street – Snow Day Comfort Food

The recent opening of the fourth Burgoo restaurant in Metro Vancouver, Burgoo Kitsilano, combined with the fact that it’s cold and snowy outside, reminded me that we hadn’t posted about our dinner experience from a while ago at Burgoo Main Street. “Burgoo” is a term used for many types of comforting and hearty meat & […]

Les Faux Bourgeois Review

After we enjoyed afternoon tea at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, we managed to secure an early reservation for dinner at Les Faux Bourgeois in Mount Pleasant. Les Faux Bourgeois is a highly-hyped casual French restaurant located East 15th Avenue, near the non-foodie intersection of Kingsway & Fraser Street. We were seated at the bar and presented […]
