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.

I know that there are a lot of places to eat at Granville Island but one of our default go-to places is the Sandbar. Run under the same banner that manages The Teahouse, Cardero’s, and Seasons in the Park, they know how to put together a good plate of food and all have beautiful locations… perfect for a date.
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
[Start of PSA] So, I just got an email from someone at Health Canada asking me to help people become aware that March is Nutrition Month (read more about it here). I figured what better way to accomplish this than by having a week long theme of the healthiest foods you can eat? First off, we’ll talk about doughnuts and then we’ll move onto pies… [End of PSA]
It’s been ages since I’ve been to Deep Cove… so much so that I forgot how tiny this little community is. Read the rest of this entry
Back in December, we were really trying to avoid the local malls because we knew they would be packed full of shoppers. Fortunately, Vancouver has lots of shopping areas besides germ-riddled malls… such as Granville Street. I’ve never really noticed West Restaurant nestled amongst the other stores before as the exterior is a bit understated.
Back in November of last year, we stopped by the Fish House in Stanley Park for lunch. It’s been years since we last visited this restaurant located next to the tennis courts. Being a touristy spot, I was worried that it would be busy at lunchtime but I guess the rain kept everyone away because we were the first ones there (a few diners did eventually arrive a bit later).
