Over the years, we’ve become a fan of the fruity offerings of Edible Arranagements. Aside from the high sugar content, it would seem to be a healthier choice when compared to a large box of chocolates and tastier than a flower arrangement. Read the rest of this entry
So how long has it been since we last visited Q4? Well, the last time we were here, it was still known as Quattro on Fourth… speaking of which, it was still located on 4th at the time. Rebranded a few years ago, Q4 is now located about 5 blocks south from the original location but it’s still serving up tasty Italian fare.
Well, it looks like it’s that time of year again… That time when restaurants get unusually busy with diners looking to get a good deal on their favourite restaurant or to try out that chic spot that they’ve been dying to visit. This year, there seems to be more special events than ever but the big draw is always the $18, $28, and $38 tasting menus.
On the first day of Dine Out Vancouver 2013, we decided to visit Bistro Pastis. I’ve seen this restaurant before while shopping along W 4th and always meant to try it out so I figured this was a great opportunity. Read the rest of this entry
We were picking up some fruits from the new Edible Arrangements store on Arbutus when we were feeling the urge for some lunch. We immediately noticed the aroma coming from the Quiznos located a few doors down and figured why not? Read the rest of this entry
It was a dark and stormy night. The fog was rolling in and blanketed the entire beach front with an eerie sereneness. As we walked the lonely pathway from the Kits parking lot to our ultimate destination, I experienced an uneasy feeling of déjá vu… this was all too familiar. I’m sure that I’ve seen this scene many times before in those slasher/horror flicks… right before the people get attacked by zombies/vampires/werewolves/aliens/long-lost-monsters-from-a-time-long-ago/or <gasp> Justin Bieber!
Mistral French Bistro is a friendly little restaurant located on West Broadway on the same block as Thomas Haas. We dropped by for a xmas lunch with friends recently and were treated with some very friendly service For some reason, I always expect French restaurants to be a bit rude… I must be projecting some unfounded stereotype.
It’s no wonder the staff at Thomas Haas wear Powered by Chocolates t-shirts… their confections are that good! While they also serve savory items, the real reason you go to Thomas Haas is for the sweets… Read the rest of this entry
No one word evokes so many different feelings than Turducken. Some people fear it. Some people are disgusted by it. And some people lust for it in a way that is mildly inappropriate.
We recently won the August Burger of the Month Contest at Romer’s Burger Bar and were invited by Steve and the rest of the gang at Romer’s to try it out. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the term, turducken is a dish where you stuff a chicken into a duck which is then stuffed into a turkey. Insane? Probably. Tasty? Yes please.

If you’re in Kitsilano and you’ve got a hankering for some nearby Korean grub, the place that you go is Dae Bak Bon Ga on West 4th… mainly because it’s the only Korean restaurant in Kits (no, seriously!).
We first discovered Dae Bak Bon Ga after dining at the nearby restaurant, Bistrot Bistro. Even though we were stuffed from our supper, we couldn’t help but notice the wonderful Korean BBQ aroma wafting through the air and were determined to return in the future to try them out.
