Empire Seafood Restaurant Review – Dim Sum

Empire Seafood Restaurant is located on Westminster Highway, in the same complex as London Drugs and Milestones. As with most dim sum restaurants, seat spacing is quite minimal. Empire is usually booming busy at peak times, and can get loud, but that I guess is part of the dim sum experience. Regardless of which dim […]

Fairchild Restaurant Group invited Eating in Vancouver to attend their grand opening/media tasting event for Saboten Japanese Tonkatsu this past weekend at Richmond’s Aberdeen Centre. Saboten’s Canadian grand opening marked not only the company’s first outlet in all of North America, but also the first Saboten restaurant outside of Asia: Saboten was founded in 1966 […]

Maruwa Sushi Japanese Restaurant Review

Maruwa Sushi Japanese Restaurant is located right beside Tim Hortons in the strip-mall along Steveston Highway, between No. 5 Road and Shell Road. Unlike most places in Vancouver proper, ample complimentary parking is conveniently available right out front of this Richmond restaurant. We’ve eaten at Maruwa plenty of occasions over the years, as my sister-in-law […]

Hog Shack Cook House Review – BBQ In Steveston

It has taken us a while to try Hog Shack Cook House in Steveston — but we’re glad we finally did. Restaurants with big “Twitter” hype surrounding them often leave us wanting more, or regretting ever visiting in the first place. This was not the case at all with the Hog Shack. Located on Baysview […]

La Chocolaterie Review – “The First Ganache Shop In Vancouver”

Japanese confectioners, Taka & Kayoko, opened La Chocolaterie less than a year ago (December, 2010) with the passionate goal of inviting people to discover and enjoy chocolate in a whole new way. “The first ganache shop in Vancouver”, La Chocolaterie is located inside Izumi-ya Japanese Marketplace on Alderbridge Way in Richmond. They are also occasionally […]

Tsim Chai Noodles Review

It’s directly across the street from the Richmond Public Market (check out Peanut’s Bubble Tea when you’re there – it’s comparable to Dragon Ball Bubble Tea House) and it’s always busy. So […]
