Church’s Chicken (Lougheed Hwy) – Fried Chicken Breakfast

When everything else is closed, coming across the following three words is like winning the lotto: “Open 24 Hours”.

Sea Harbour Seafood Restaurant – Spot Prawns 2014

Just like the Alaskan King Crab season earlier this year, Spot Prawn season this year is nothing like it used to be. Read the rest of this entry

Wings Restaurants & Pubs (Burquitlam)

“Bur-what?” you might ask… Burquitlam is a portmanteau (think “Brangelina”) of Burnaby and Coquitlam since North Road divides the two cities.  Wings is located right on the corner of North Road and Lougheed Hwy (a very congested intersection). Read the rest of this entry

Wu Fung Dessert (Aberdeen Centre) – Chicken Wings

So, is this place called “Wu Fung” or “Wo Fung”? I’ve read a couple of different reviews and I’ve seen both used.  I think I’ll stick with “Wu Fung” since that’s what it says on the sign.  Mind you, it’s called “Wu Fung Dessert” but does anyone come here for dessert?

Church’s Chicken (Lougheed) – Memories of Deep-Fried Apple Pies

Those of you that are old enough will remember when McDonald’s used to serve deep-fried apple pies.  The crispy, crunchy, deep-fried crust filled with chunks of tender apple and gooey sauce… what’s not to love?  Then, one day (about the same time the McPizza debuted in Canada), they mysteriously vanished only to be replaced with the far inferior “baked” apple pie.

Chewies Steam & Oyster Bar – Southern Fried Goodness

What do you get when you cross Rodney’s Oyster House and Ouisi Bistro?  A casual spot where you can pick up some great raw oysters on the half shell along with southern comfort food.  Read the rest of this entry

Max’s Restaurant – Cuisine of the Philippines

I first noticed a new restaurant along Kingsway a couple of months ago.  At the time, I wasn’t sure what kind of food they served – all I could tell was that it seemed bright and clean and had an inconspicuous name… Max’s Restaurant.  I figured it was either a new burger joint or some kind of fast food outlet.

Church’s Chicken (Slocan)

Fried chicken just tends to make you feel better about life… and Church’s Chicken has been one of my favourite fast food fried chicken places for a long time.  I know a lot of people like KFC but I find their chicken a bit too dry.  Church’s, on the other hand, is both juicy on the inside and super crispy on the outside.

The Boss Restaurant (Metrotown)

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

KFC (Kingsway and Royal Oak) – Finger Lickin’ Good?

It’s been ages since I’ve had a bucket of chicken from KFC.  In fact, the last time I remember buying one of their iconic buckets was back when they were known by their full name… Kentucky Fried Chicken.  While most of the KFCs are located in mall food courts now, there are still some old free-standing KFC outlets like the one on Kingsway and Royal Oak in Burnaby.

Dinesty Chinese Restaurant – Dim Sum

I’m not going to lie… I used to make fun of the name “Dinesty Chinese Restaurant” whenever we used to drive by it in Richmond.  Instead of a clever play on words, I figured it was just a typical Chinese misspelling that you see so often in translated signs and menus. Read the rest of this entry
