Sometime last year, Peninsula Seafood Restaurant opened up in Oakridge Centre. Oakridge has always leaned more towards the affluent shopper given the location so it’s no surprise to find a restaurant that aims to cater to these customers.

“Pappa-whati?” That was the first thought that crossed my mind.

Miura Waffle Milk Bar

I’ve heard many good things of Miura Waffle Milk Bar. But because it used to be located downtown, I never had the chance to try them out. So when I heard that they moved to Main Street, I decided to try them out the next time I had a waffle-itch.

Sushi Koharu – The Un-Sashimi Box

I’ve past by Sushi Koharu a number of times while driving down 12th Street. After having lunch here one day, I probably should have kept driving by.

Lost in the 50’s Drive-in

If you’ve driven along Edmonds, you’ll probably recall seeing the iconic neon sign that currently points to the Lost in the 50’s Drive-in. But the current drive-in wasn’t always underneath the heritage sign… the 20 ft tall curved arrow used to point to the Tomahawk Drive-in that occupied the spot in 1961. Read the rest of this entry

Miku Restaurant – Zen and the Passion Fruit Praline Dome

I’ve been looking for a reason to head downtown and visit Miku ever since we tried Minami in Yaletown.

Kim Anh – Vietnamese-Canadian Cafe

If you live in Vancouver, chances are, you’ve tried pho before, driven by a hole-in-the-wall pho joint, or have argued with someone on the correct pronunciation of “pho”.

Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar (Kits) – French Quarter Beignets

Two things come to mind when I think of Chewies… “loud” and “good food”. That’s basically the embodiment of this place.

Pamola Bakery & Deli – Tacos and Lemon Bar

Tacos at a bakery? I must have walked by this bakery a number of times and never noticed that they also serve hot Mexican food too. I guess I can’t be blamed too much… this shop in the Quay has a large display of pastries that you would find in most regular bakeries. However, if you look towards the back of the bakery, you’ll see a large menu where you can also order tacos, tortas, burritos, and other Mexican dishes.

Longtail Kitchen – Street Food

After my first visit to Longtail Kitchen in the Quay, I’ve been looking for an excuse to come back to try the rest of their menu.  Truth be told, they don’t have an extensive menu… but what they do have is all made quite well. Read the rest of this entry
