What could be better than nachos? Nachos made with thick-cut waffle fries!

The Terminal Pub – Truffle Bacon Mac and Cheese

I’ve driven by The Terminal Pub in New West many times and finally found the time to drop by for lunch one weekday. Don’t let the adult xxx store located next door sway your decision to visit this pub.

Tillamook Cheese Factory – Ice Cream Adventure

“You want to go to a cheese store?”
“No, it’s a factory.”
“Uh, okay.”

Serendipity 3 (Las Vegas 2013)

Just like The Cheesecake Factory, Serendipity 3 is one of our go-to places in Vegas.  Located right outside Caesar’s Palace on the Strip, they seem to have had some changes to their interior since our last visit (perhaps they’re undergoing renovations).

ABC Country Restaurant (North Burnaby) – Pulled Pork Mac and Cheese

It’s been many moons since the last time we dined at an ABC Country Restaurant.  I suppose one of the reasons why we never returned was because there’s always been a bit of a stigma attached to ABC.  Read the rest of this entry

PNE 2013 – Reel (Deep Fried) Mac and Cheese

We’ve been going to the PNE for years… it’s one of the constants in Vancouver in late August.  Over the years, it seemed like things had progressively gotten worse… almost to a point where we were considering not going this year.  Read the rest of this entry

The Mighty Oak – More Than Just a Grocery Store

After finishing off an early morning meal at Slickity Jim’s, I headed down to 18th and Columbia to an interesting corner store called The Mighty Oak. Read the rest of this entry

Serendipity 3 (Las Vegas – Caesars Palace)

The Webster’s Dictionary defines “serendipity” as the phenomenon of finding valuable things not sought for.  Of course, Annie Edison would say describe the “Webster’s Dictionary defines…” intro as being the Jim Belushi of speech openings.  It accomplishes nothing, but everyone keeps on using it, and no one knows why.

Whet Kitchen.Bar.Patio

There are so many great places to dine at Granville Island… I guess it’s a good thing that we don’t live closer otherwise we’d never leave.  Whet is located near the entrance of Granville Island (where the old Sammy J Peppers used to be) across from the Kids Market. Read the rest of this entry

Keg Steakhouse and Bar (Burnaby) – Flat Iron Goodness

I’m a creature of habit… each time I go to the Keg I always seem to order the boneless beef rib steak – preferably Chicago-style, cooked medium-rare (check out our last visit here).  It’s not that I haven’t tried all of the other cuts and dishes… I just really like how juicy and tender the rib steak is.  Anyhoo, when I saw a different item on their menu the last time we stopped by, I figured I’d give it a shot.

Au Petit Chavignol – In Search of Mac ‘n Cheese and Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Part 2)

As soon as I picked up my order from The Mac Shack, I headed down to East Van to go to Au Petit Chavignol to see how they compare.  You might be wondering what would possess me to have mac ‘n cheese at two different restaurants within the same day… alas, such is my devotion to the one true culinary wonder of the world… that, and I’ve way too much time on my hand.

The Mac Shack – In Search of Mac ‘n Cheese and Grilled Cheese Sandwich (Part 1)

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before but I really like mac ‘n cheese.  The problem with comfort food like mac ‘n cheese is that everyone’s idea of the perfect mac ‘n cheese is a little different and unless you share the same childhood memories associated with it, you might be disappointed by other people’s interpretation of the dish.

There have been two places that I’ve had on my wishlist to try for a while for their mac ‘n cheese: Au Petit Chavignol and The Mac Shack.  So, I decided to go on a Mac ‘n Cheese Expedition and try them both out on the same day. Read the rest of this entry
