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
The Cactus Club located at 5500 No. 3 Road is not exactly styled in the same manner as their other locations… as a matter of fact, it looks like this location hasn’t had a reno for quite some time.
For some reason, I always forget that there is an Earls located in Lansdowne Mall. Maybe it’s because the mall entrance to this restaurant is usually closed requiring you to enter from outside of the mall. I’m only bringing this up because when we came by to visit this Earls in February, we walked right by the outside entrance and spent a perplexing few moments trying to find the mall entrance. We eventually went back outside the mall and entered through their outside entrance and sat down to enjoy some comfortable eats. Read the rest of this entry
My first visit to Wings (not to be confused with House of Wings a few blocks away) was on a late December weekday. The lighting inside this pub is quite bright but the decor is mainly dark tones with black tables & seating, and dark coffered ceilings. Read the rest of this entry
I miss the Wendy’s tv commercials with founder Dave Thomas. I think ever since he passed on, Wendy’s has been going downhill. They used to have a number of different salad options at a reasonable price but the selection has gotten worse over time (and more expensive)… I know… who goes to a fast food joint for a salad? Still, sometimes you’re in a rush and you don’t have a salad spinner on you. Read the rest of this entry
We drive by it all the time but the Earls on Lougheed Hwy. in Burnaby always skips our mind… partly because it’s a little hidden and tucked in a light commercial park close to a Home Depot. Read the rest of this entry
While we’ve been to Romer’s Burger Bar on numerous occasions, we’ve never actually tried stopping by for brunch… and for the life of me, I’m not sure why.
Tucked in the corner of the shopping complex at Marine Drive and Byrne Road is an outpost of Boston Pizza. I’m not sure why they thought this would be a good location since it seems to be very isolated from the rest of the shops but we don’t like crowds too much so it works out perfectly for us.
This is our last post on Las Vegas for a while and it’s only fitting that we end this trip at the Carl’s Jr. located at McCarran Airport. Read the rest of this entry
There are so many great places to dine at Granville Island… I guess it’s a good thing that we don’t live closer otherwise we’d never leave. Whet is located near the entrance of Granville Island (where the old Sammy J Peppers used to be) across from the Kids Market. Read the rest of this entry
Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar recently opened up a new location on West Broadway kitty corner to the Cactus Club. The large restaurant was pretty dead when we arrived for lunch on a sunny October Sunday which gave us ample opportunity to take in all of the colours and textures in the interior design.
