At the far end of Waikiki is the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel and on the main floor is a Wolfgang Puck Express. Read the rest of this entry
The Aloha Stadium Swap Meet was on our list of things to do while in Oahu, and since it’s only open 3 days a week (Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays), we decided to rent a car and go shopping before our drive up to the North Shore. However, before all of that, we needed some breakfast so we stopped by Nico’s at Pier 38 which is about half way between our hotel and the stadium.
There’s nothing better than starting out a morning with a good breakfast. And when that breakfast just happens to be served in Hawaii… it’s just all that much better. Eggs ‘n Things has been around Waikiki since 1974 and they have a few locations right now (their flagship store is located near the Ala Moana Center) but the one that we visited was their busy “eggspress” location right across from the beach with a great view of the ocean.

Nothing starts off a cold morning better than a cup of hot chocolate with whipped cream. I had some errands around Brentwood one Saturday morning and stopped off at IHOP for some grub. The place was pretty busy – I don’t think there’s very much open this early in this neighbourhood and the food is pretty decent. Read the rest of this entry
Most A&W locations nowadays are found near or inside malls but the location on Kingsway near Highgate almost looks like a throwback to the glory days of a bygone era. It’s quite unusual to still find such a large stand-alone A&W in Vancouver. While not operating as a drive-in (they do have a 24-hour drive through though), this location seems like they have enough space for it if that fad ever came back. Read the rest of this entry
Jethro’s Fine Grub is the kind of place that you have to be dedicated to go to. For one thing, it’s a tiny little restaurant and the line ups during peak hours can be very impressive. Read the rest of this entry
February was Food Truck Fest at Vancouver Farmers Market and I dropped by on the last Saturday. As it turned out, the day was pleasantly sunny (but still bitterly cold). My sights today was to visit Yolk’s and try out some of their wares.
Are you looking for someplace to have breakfast? How about a busy little spot that’s got a flair for interesting names?
A lot has changed along The Drive over the last quarter century. I recall back in the 80′s that there was still fairly noticeable remnants of “Little Italy” even despite the influx of Asian and other cultures. We found ourselves in our old stomping grounds in early February after dropping off some donations to the nearby SPCA and noticed that many of the old shops have been replaced with an eclectic collection of restaurants. While there were still a few old shops that we remembered, The Drive has seem to undergone a bit of gentrification… if you told me 25 years ago that there was going to be a fish and chips food truck parked in front of Grandview Park, I wouldn’t have believed you.

Are you looking for a good old-fashioned greasy spoon diner? You don’t have to go very far because tucked into a little nook on Main Street is Lucy’s Eastside Diner. This 24-hour restaurant really has that diner vibe going on – right down to the old-fashioned tabletops that look like they haven’t been changed in decades and the 80′s music playing in the background.

On a Sunday morning Costco outing in early January, we decided to grab some dim sum beforehand. The main problem being that Burnaby has a definite lack of choices when it comes to dim sum. Read the rest of this entry
