Hokkaido Ramen Santouka Toronto

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is a Japanese chain of ramen restaurants with multiple locations around Asia and North America. Since our last visit to Hokkaido Ramen Santouka in Vancouver, the company has been specifically conquering South East Asia with expansion into Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and even Taiwan. With so many shops on two continents, we […]

Noodle Mania 2013

As much as I love food, there are few dishes I can eat repeatedly without some type of consumption fatigue. That said, for every rule there is always an exception and for me, it is noodles. Whether it is Italian pasta, Vietnamese pho, Malaysian laksa or Japanese udon, I can never pass up a good […]

John’s Noodle Village Review (Victoria, BC)

We stopped by John’s Noodle Village today for a quick lunch in Victoria and realized that we didn’t have our Lumix with us. I usually keep it in my purse and take it wherever I go since it’s so compact — which is one of the reasons we made the switch from an SLR a couple […]

unPhogettable Review (Mesa, Arizona)

unPhogettable is a family-run Vietnamese restaurant located in the Mekong Plaza (a South East Asian indoor retail mall) on Dobson Road in Mesa, AZ. (The same family also runs a sister restaurant, Pho 78 in Virginia Beach, Virginia). The Mesa location has two convenient entrances, so you can either enter unPhogettable right outside the Mekong […]

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 […]

Peaceful Restaurant Review

Peaceful restaurant has gained some accolades over the years, with recently winning a Chinese Restaurant Award for their ‘Peaceful Beef Rolls’, and also appearing in the first international episode of the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives (click here to watch the Vancouver round up), hosted by the awesome Guy Fieri. Obviously, appearing in ‘Triple […]

The Noodle Box Kitsilano Review

The Noodle Box, like Benny’s Bagels, is another popular establishment that began in downtown Victoria, BC. The company first started as a little refurbished hot dog cart in 2001 and soon expanded to a brick and mortar shop in Victoria’s Chinatown. When I used to work in downtown Victoria, The Noodle Box was often a […]

Benkei Ramen (Crossroads) Fairview Review

Benkei Ramen is a popular chain of Japanese ramen noodle soup restaurants, with five locations around Vancouver. The company even expanded into Japan! We’ve previously dined at their Kitsilano and Robson locations and thoroughly enjoyed both restaurants, so we thought we’d try Benkei Ramen’s Fairview location, situated in the Crossroads condo development on the corner […]

Benkei Ramen Robson Review

Benkei Ramen’s Robson location (near Denman) was the second out of the chain’s five restaurants we visited. The restaurant’s decor and layout was virtual identical to its location on West Broadway, in Kitsilano, with a bamboo dividing wall at its entrance and similar warm colour tones throughout. Servers were friendly and promptly seated us upon […]
