Birthday dinner at Dosanko in Downtown Eastside of Vancouver

It’s my birthday month, meaning there’s (another) good reason to go out and enjoy food! I have to admit that it feels strange to be in my hometown this year. It’s been a routine to pack my bags and head out on an adventure outside of Vancouver. Sometimes a busy girl wants to do nothing…

Hong Kong dessert at Snackshot in Marpole area of Vancouver

With the new dessert places popping up this summer, it’s a good opportunity to knock down that food list. It’s always interesting to visit a new restaurant. I mean, there are so many variables to think about. The ambiance, food, service and quality/quantity. Everyone has their own opinions. Snackshot opened after Victoria Day this year,…

Earnest Ice Cream in Strathcona area of East Vancouver

There’s no secret I have an ice cream problem. Everyone knows. If we do not go out for dessert or ice cream, we cannot be friends. And no window (ice cream) shopping. That’s lame.  Who does that? 😉 Luckily we live in a part of Canada where we don’t understand snow so we can enjoy…

Yogurt Every Day – Hubert Cormier

Summer is here! I’m really behind on my updates. Sorry! I have a first here. I will be drafting up a cookbook review on Yogurt Every Day by nutritionist/dietitian Hubert Cormier earlier this month. Appetite by Penguin Random House Canada has graciously provided a copy review of this healthy eating book. A big THANK YOU…

Pepper Lunch Canada in Richmond at Central at Garden City

Pepper Lunch Canada has been expanding in the Metro Vancouver area with its first location in 2015 and recently opened a third location a month ago. I introduced my BFF (best food friend) on Pepper Lunch Canada and the visiting on multiple trips continues! We are fans of Pepper Lunch and its food concept on…

Welcome Parlour, Welcome Ice Cream in North Vancouver

Again, it’s been a busy, exciting month in May. I am behind on my blog and run a busy life. So sorry! Welcome Parlour has had quite the exposure on Instagram in the Metro Vancouver area. Since it is located in North Vancouver, it would mean that I need to be conveniently in the area….

Matcha Modern Lunch at Aer Café in Grandview-Woodlands, Vancouver

Now that I’m semi-settled in after a few months since February, I can focus on the finer things in life, like catching up with food and people in real life. And enjoying in real life activities and conversations! Those are THE BEST. It was an impromptu lunch and I had the pleasure of selective a…

Brunch at Nemesis Coffee in Gastown – Vancouver

In addition to the ice cream movement, there is also the coffee revolution of new coffee shops in town. Apparently the coffee is top-notch at Nemesis Coffee and I will never know. I’m a tea drinker here. To the coffee addicts, it’ll remain a mystery to you. 😉 There has been much hype about Nemesis…
