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
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
I’ve actually eaten at this Burnaby Fatburger location before… ironically enough, while taking a first aid course at the nearby St. Johns Ambulance location. If there was anything that could cause an instant heart attack it has to be chili cheese fries.
With all of the recent scares of tainted meat in the news lately, it’s hard to believe that I’m still eating burgers at all. Well, I suppose there’s a difference between eating frozen burger patties and burgers that are made fresh to order… like the ones at Vera’s Burger Shack. Read the rest of this entry
Max’s Burgers opened up earlier this year but we simply haven’t found the time to try them out until recently. I’ve heard mixed reviews of the place but it’s always hard to judge just based on one review. Read the rest of this entry
My best way to describe the Paddlewheeler Neighbourhood Pub at the Quay in New West is “old”. Don’t get me wrong, they have a fairly big patio that overlooks the boardwalk and large screen tvs all over the place but everything about this pub feels a bit tired. When we stopped to look around at the other patrons, we noticed that we were probably the youngest there by a long shot (and we’re not spring chickens anymore).
It’s been a long time since I’ve had a Dr. Pepper – from what I remember, I used to like it but for some reason, I stopped drinking it. Over the years, memories of its’ distinctive cherry-medicine flavour still rush to mind whenever I see it being served. Read the rest of this entry
After a long hike in the trails around Lost Lake with Sophie (mental note for future trips: black diamond trails = steep, rocky, and mildly dangerous), we managed to find our way back to Whistler Village and were starving for some lunch. I had heard of some good things about the Splitz Grill in Vancouver but never tried them out and a custom made burger was sounding pretty good at the moment. Read the rest of this entry
