Are you looking for someplace to have breakfast? How about a busy little spot that’s got a flair for interesting names?
There’s a lot of Chinese seafood restaurants that serve Alaskan King Crab in the Lower Mainland but one of the first (or at least the one who perfected it) was Sun Sui Wah. Of course, Sun Sui Wah is our usual go-to place when AKC season starts up (take a look at our previous posts here and here and here). Read the rest of this entry
Truthfully, I don’t really recall why we were at Sun Sui Wah for dinner… I was just going through some partially started blog posts and noticed this one sitting in my draft folder. Let’s see if I can piece some things together…
The thing that I like about restaurants with unambiguous names is you don’t have to guess what kind of food they serve. Take, for example, Bob Likes Thai Food on Main Street… it’s a pretty good bet that they serve Thai food. Read the rest of this entry
If you’ve read this blog long enough, you’ve probably seen quite a few references to various tv shows that I’ve grown up watching. One of the funnier episodes of Seinfeld was The Dinner Party where the gang was trying to buy a chocolate babka to bring to a (you guessed it) dinner party. Read the rest of this entry
Okay, is it pronounced ka-rih-BEE-uhn or kuh-RIB-ee-uhn? I guess it doesn’t really matter as long as the food’s good. If you’re looking for some great tasting Caribbean-inspired fare, you only have to drop by one of two Reef locations in Vancouver to satisfy your cravings. Read the rest of this entry
It was a dark and stormy morning when I found myself out on Main Street looking for somewhere to pass the time before my first work appointment. My eyes were immediately drawn to the Salt Spring Coffee Co. on E 27th (despite the fact that I don’t drink coffee). Read the rest of this entry
This is Part 3 of our journey to find solace after some fairly rough weeks of renos/restorations. You can find our previous posts here: Part 1 and here: Part 2. So, carrying on from our last post, we had just left Joey Burnaby and were on the lookout for a decent dessert place in the area. The only problem is that there is a definite lack of places to go in North Burnaby if you’re looking for something other than bubble tea. After an aborted visit to BG Urban Cafe, we wound up travelling all the way down to Main Street for some yummy noshing at Sweet Revenge Patisserie.
After my previous bánh mì pilgrimage visits to Kim Chau Deli, Tung Hing Bakery and Ba Le Deli & Bakery on Kingsway, I ended my trip at Au Petit Café located on Main Street. While a little further away, it was well worth the trip. Now, unlike the other 3 bánh mì spots, Au Petit is an actual full-fledged restaurant (albeit small) and serves a number of other dishes other than bánh mì. I think Eating in Vancouver put it best by describing this place as a “hole-in-the-wall Vietnamese joint” but that didn’t seem to dissuade the number of diners that were already there (most of which were of a more advanced age).

Our original plan was to try Crave on Main but we didn’t realize how small the restaurant was and we didn’t feel like waiting in line for a table. So we started hiking up Main Street looking for a place for a quick lunch and came across Mui Garden. We recognized the name from the same restaurant on Victoria Drive and decided to pop in.
