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).
It’s Vegas Baby! It seems like ages since the last time we visited Las Vegas so we jumped at the chance to come here in early December (especially since the Mayan calendar predicted the end of the world on Dec 21, 2012). This is the first in a string of posts based in Sin City – mainly to help me remember where we ate and to plan for our next visit
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.

We used to eat at Stefanos many years ago and fondly recalled the great Greek fare that we had back then. The problem is that we never found our way back here for such a long time. It’s not for lack of trying though… within the last year, we tried to come here for lunch at least twice and the restaurant was closed on both occasions.
Unbeknownst to us, we arrived to the Hart House a day before the Passion for Pork Week was supposed to start in September. As fate would have it, they started their special pork-rific menu early and we were able to try out one of their dishes.
I recall eating at a restaurant located on the 2nd floor of the South East corner of Cambie and Broadway many years ago. I’m not quite sure but I think it was a Fogg n’ Suds location but it closed out years ago. I’ve seen the Original Joe’s that replaced it many times as I’ve driven along Broadway but I’m not sure why we haven’t tried them out until now. Read the rest of this entry
What are the two things that you can always count on when you go to a Joey Restaurant? The food’s going to be good and the waitresses will be well dressed (not that I’m one to notice that last part)… have to be careful here… my wife reads this blog (or so she tells me). Read the rest of this entry
So, what do you call a Greek restaurant that doesn’t serve Moussaka? Well, in our case, you call it Kalamata Greek Taverna. It’s not that they don’t have it listed on their menu though. Read the rest of this entry
I don’t think I’ve been to a Joey’s restaurant for a number of years… back then, they were known as Joey Tomato’s. Joey’s is a lot like Milestones and Cactus Club – casual atmosphere, good food, and staff focussed on service. That’s not to say they ignore sales… in fact, our server (Sandy) practically up-sold us on everything but wasn’t the least bit pushy. Read the rest of this entry
