Zog’s Dogs is something that you can’t miss when you come to Whistler. Located near the ski lifts, they serve… you guessed it… hot dogs! While they’re also known for their poutine, we weren’t looking for something that filling and stuck with regular fries. Plus, Sophie loves fries and the gravy probably would have given her a tummy ache. Read the rest of this entry
COWS has been a staple at Whistler for years and it’s easy to see why. With a higher butterfat content (16%) than regular ice cream and the fact that they open late… this makes the perfect spot to grab some comforting dessert after a hard day of hiking (or shopping).
It’s been years since we’ve been back to Whistler so we decided to bring Sophie with us as we’ve always heard that Whistler is very dog friendly. This time around we stayed in the Pan Pacific Whistler Village Centre and were very pleased when they upgraded us from a basic studio to the 2 bedroom penthouse Whistler Suite. OMG, this suite was awesome! Read the rest of this entry
I guess it goes without saying that a town like Whistler (that’s built on the snowboarding community) would have a ton of pizza joints littered around the village. After all, if you’ve got the munchies after a day of snowboarding (or whatever else an unnamed Olympic Medallist does in his spare time), nothing hits the spot better than a slice of pizza.

We first tried Mezbaan Fine Indian Fusion over a year ago (a little bit before we started our food blog) but haven’t had the chance to revisit until just recently. Like a lot of other Indian restaurants, they do offer a buffet – but I’ve been trying to steer clear of East Indian buffets lately because the sauces tend to be quite rich and the rice and naan fill you up so quickly.

A number of years ago, we used to visit Steveston quite often on the weekends to shop at some of the quaint shops. As more and more shops closed down over the years, our visits became fewer and far between. It seems, however, that there is a bit of invigoration within the community lately. Perhaps it’s the prominent faux Storybrooke shops used in the Once Upon a Time tv show that’s drawing more people here. Read the rest of this entry
There’s a ton of places to find fish and chips in Steveston but what do you do if you have a hankering for something a little different? What about Malaysian food on the pier? Fortunately, the one Malaysian restaurant in Steveston happens to be right on the pier (albeit a bit hidden) located near the Hog Shack.
Is there actually any shopping to do in Aberdeen Centre that doesn’t involve food? Well, on this one weekend, we came by to pick up some cables from NCIX and bumped into our nephew and his friends so we decided to try out Tropika (located on the lower floor near Mei Jan Hong).

Many moons ago, The Old Spaghetti Factory was the place to go to take your highschool sweetheart on a date. Of course, at the time, there wasn’t as many options to choose from that were affordable for teenagers as there are now. The prices at the Spaghetti Factory were (and still are) quite reasonable and includes appy, entrée, and dessert. Read the rest of this entry
This is Part 3 of our journey to find solace after some fairly rough weeks of renos/restorations. You can find our previous posts here: Part 1 and here: Part 2. So, carrying on from our last post, we had just left Joey Burnaby and were on the lookout for a decent dessert place in the area. The only problem is that there is a definite lack of places to go in North Burnaby if you’re looking for something other than bubble tea. After an aborted visit to BG Urban Cafe, we wound up travelling all the way down to Main Street for some yummy noshing at Sweet Revenge Patisserie.
In Part 1 of our ode to stress relief, we visited Joey Broadway to drown our sorrows – I guess we were more stressed than we realized because we immediately made plans to visit Joey Burnaby the following night. We started out our night with a virgin Mojito and a Really Fuzzy Navel – the Fuzzy Navel has slightly more alcohol than the Stiff Lemonade (2 oz vs. 1.25 oz). Read the rest of this entry
This is Part 1 of a 3 part series covering our attempts to relieve the stress that we’ve been going through over the last month and a half. Besides the usual work-related stress that we’ve been experiencing, we’ve recently had a fairly horrid experience with roofing work at our place (and the subsequent restoration work after experiencing a large leak caused by the roofers).
