On one of our recent visits to Phnom Penh and The Pie Shoppe, I noticed that a new restaurant had opened up in the old Chi Sing Trading Co. location at the corner of Gore and Keefer. If you’ve lived in Vancouver as long as I have, you’ll probably remember the spot as a typical Chinatown import store where you could find cheap knickknacks. Read the rest of this entry
During the last Dine Out, we had a pretty great time at the Hart House so we decided to come back here for Father’s Day Brunch.

We were a bit disappointed recently when we stopped by Dockside Restaurant around 11am for lunch only to find out that their lunch menu didn’t start until 11:30am.

On a rare occasion that we found ourselves downtown (traffic and parking is h-e-double-hockey-sticks down there), we stopped by Coast Restaurant for lunch.

Rodney’s Oyster House has been on my to-do list for quite a while but I’ve never seemed to have found the time to make it down to Yaletown.

It’s a perfect place to watch them shuck the various oysters and cook/reheat their soup. All of the staff were male and fairly boisterous but that lent itself well for the atmosphere we were in.
