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 […]

The Templeton Diner Review

Lately, it feels as though we’ve been on an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives! We recently tried a couple decent diners: The Red Wagon diner in East Vancouver and Joe’s Grill on 4th Avenue. Prior to those restaurants, we dined at the epitome of a great dive – Evelyn’s Cafe and Grill. A while […]

Bonchaz Bakery Cafe Review

Expectations are strange things, aren’t they? I came to Bonchaz (downtown Vancouver on West Hastings) looking forward to indulging myself in delicious French brioche. An expectation I got from a friend claiming Bonchaz has ‘amazing brioche buns’. If you throw around a word as glorious as brioche, well that pastry better deliver. When I think […]

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House Review

It was Gary’s birthday last week so we dined at Joe Fortes because my hubby loves steak and seafood! I submitted the reservation on and made a special request that “Happy Birthday” was to be written our dessert. Not a ridiculous request, I thought, since most restaurants in Vancouver will gladly accommodate. Upon arrival, […]

Therefore, he is incredibly passionate and highly experienced in the art of creating the […]

The promotion offers 50% off on all dinner menu items from 4:30pm – 6:00pm, daily. We arrived just before 6:00pm so we could take advantage of this amazing deal. […]

Viet Sub Vietnamese Cuisine Review

Viet Sub Vietnamese Cuisine is located in downtown Vancouver on Robson Street & Richards. It offers reasonably priced, great tasting Vietnamese subs, noodle soups, and salad & spring rolls. It’s really tiny inside, but has a couple seats at the counter to grab a quick bite to eat. Evidently, the small restaurant does mostly take-out […]

Giovane Café Review

The Fairmont Pacific Rim, located in downtown Vancouver is stunning.  Carrera marble floors, walls and pillars would normally look ostentatious, however the design is über calming, modern, and sophisticated. We would suggest definitely wandering the hotel when you come to eat! Giovane Café is a chic cafe + bakery + deli located inside the Fairmont […]

Guu Thurlow Review

Guu is a Japanese Tapas restaurant with a few locations around Vancouver, and one in Toronto. We visited the original Guu on Thurlow (just south of Robson Street). Let me start off by saying this place is lively and LOUD! The kind of noise that actually hurts your ears. I’ve been to Tokyo, but I […]
