Tum Nak Thai Restaurant Review (Mesa, Arizona)

Tum Nak Thai is a little family-run Thai food restaurant tucked away between Starbucks and Weight Watchers in a shopping complex on Power Road in Mesa, AZ. We’d been to that particular Starbucks location a few times previously and had never even noticed the Thai restaurant right next door! Menus are very intricate with fabric […]

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” […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The company, founded in Alberta in 2004, has grown to included 58 stores nationwide, an international location in Lebanon, and will soon add franchises in the United States.

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 […]

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 […]
