As I mentioned on my last post on the Paddlewheeler Neighbourhood Pub, we were feeling a little hungry after we left so we decided to grab a bite at the Quay. The Westminster Quay used to be somewhere we liked to visit because of all of the little shops. Unfortunately, a lot of shops have closed down over the years… but it seems like there’s some renewal going on at the Quay and maybe things will pick back up. Read the rest of this entry
You know, with a name like “Yu Kee” they better make some pretty tasty food. When I first saw the name of this place, my immediate thoughts were “yucky?”… seriously? Okay, I know that’s not how you pronounce the name – but in either case, the food is actually really good.
Yu Kee is located in the Killarney Centre mini mall (the same complex as Columbus Restaurant and Wally’s Burgers) and operates as both a BBQ kitchen (where you can purchase various cuts of BBQ meat like duck, chicken, and pork) and a full-fledged restaurant.
Years ago, when I used to work on East 41st Ave, the staff would occassionally eat at Neighbour’s Restaurant on Victoria and 49th… I think we even had a branch xmas party there one year and I recall that the food tasted pretty good. The restaurant is very much like the name implies – friendly, cozy and comforting food. Read the rest of this entry
Insadong is a pretty popular Korean restaurant along the Burnaby/Coquitlam border but it was very quiet when we visited for lunch during the weekday… which suits me just fine because I’ve been getting tired of fighting through all of the masses of people at the mall during xmas shopping.
Bronco Belle in Brentwood Mall serves up a lot of different grilled meats including beef, chicken, bison, wild boar, kangaroo, and camel… Really? Camel?? Read the rest of this entry
There are just so many things that seem wrong with this hole-in-the-wall restaurant that I was almost hesitant to try the food. But, since I drive by this place 4 times a day, I figured it’s about time I tried it out. I used to think that Georgio’s was just another pizza joint catering to the nearby high school. And while they seem to do brisk lunch business with the teenagers looking for $3 poutine, I came for the Filipino style BBQ chicken and pork.
If you’re like me, one of the things that you like most about eating at a Korean restaurant is the banchan (all the little side dishes). Since Koryo is a fast-food version of a Korean restaurant, you can’t expect the banchan to be of the same quality as a full service restaurant but I still think it’s better than the regular fries/onion rings fodder that you get at the other food court outlets.
