While the interior furnishings of the Cattle Cafe near Metrotown is similar to the one on Edmonds (lots of 70′s circle prints), the Metrotown location feels a bit tired. It was quite busy at this location when we visited at 1pm and it seemed to take forever for our food to come out (we thought they lost our order). Read the rest of this entry
Dim Sum at Fortune House Seafood Restaurant can get very busy (and noisy) during weekends… especially around 11am. That’s why when we visit, we try to come here early. They actually open at 9am on weekends and it’s much easier to get a table and avoid the mall crowds around this time.
There was a time in my youth when I thought Burger King was really good (relatively speaking of course). Their signature Whopper seemed juicy and their BK Big Fish actually had a huge piece of fish in it. I suppose times have changed and so have my tastes. Read the rest of this entry
Sometimes, you just want something simple and comforting to eat. You’ve had a hard day at work, you’ve been fighting through the masses at the mall trying to get your xmas shopping done, your feet are hurting, and you just want something that tastes good in your tummy. Read the rest of this entry
I’ve mentioned a few times before that Ramie’s is our go-to place for Greek food near our place. While we’ve dined in this small little restaurant on Kingsway before, more often than naught, we opt for take-out.
Imagine our surprise when we were driving along Kingsway a while ago and noticed that they opened up a Szechuan Chongqing Restaurant on the corner of Nelson and Kingsway. A sister restaurant to the Szechuan Chongqing locations on Commercial Drive and the one on Robson Street, this particular location is rather tiny (serving as various bubble tea joints, chinese restaurants and a Brownie’s Fried Chicken in the past).

The Boss Restaurant located in Metrotown (next to Zellers) always seems busy so when we were walking by one day and noticed a lull in the crowds, we decided to drop in and try them out again. Read the rest of this entry
We’ve walked by the Orange Corner Tea House in Station Square a number of times while heading to Future Shop and we’ve always meant to stop in to try their crêpes but we’ve always been a bit too busy or in a rush to finish errands.
As the Greek would say… “Opa!” What exactly does “Opa!” mean? Well, it’s basically just an exclamation of joy or jubilant celebration. And who wouldn’t want to celebrate with a combo plate like this?
Pinkberry opened their first store in the Lower Mainland earlier in 2011 up in The Village at Park Royal. For their 2nd Lower Mainland location, they chose to go with a very high-traffic location in the Metrotown food court. It’s actually more on the outskirts of the food court – originally occupied by King’s Art Gallery, Pinkberry transformed the former art dealer stall into their own distinctive brightly coloured and minimalistic interior.
