Le Petit Belge: Amazing Salmon Benny on Waffles

I don’t make it downtown very often so, when I had the chance in mid-February, I popped by Le Petit Belge for an early morning breakfast. True to their name, this location is kind of small and I was glad that I went early as it quickly filled up in the morning. As you enter, you’ll come to the counter where you place and pay for your order before sitting down.

Lychee (Hawaii 2018): Breakfast Buffet

We were a bit hesitant to try the breakfast buffet at Lychee, a restaurant located on the 2nd floor of the Alohilani Resort, due to the price tag ($35) but quickly realized that most touristy restaurants inside hotels run around the same price range so we bit the bullet.

Eggs ‘n Things (Hawaii 2016) – Acai Bowl

Whenever we wind up in Hawaii, we always wind up at Eggs ‘n Things (just check out our last post on their flagship shop). They have a few locations in Waikiki and they always seem to be busy.

Abigail’s Party – Saturday Brunch

In truth, the name “Abigail’s Party” doesn’t sound like a restaurant but it does seem fitting for this tiny little eatery.

Honey Doughnut and Goodies – Maple Bacon Doughnut

[Start of PSA] So, I just got an email from someone at Health Canada asking me to help people become aware that March is Nutrition Month (read more about it here).  I figured what better way to accomplish this than by having a week long theme of the healthiest foods you can eat?  First off, we’ll talk about doughnuts and then we’ll move onto pies… [End of PSA]

It’s been ages since I’ve been to Deep Cove… so much so that I forgot how tiny this little community is. Read the rest of this entry

Nice Cafe – It was a Nice Cafe

I was searching high and low for the proper way to describe this little restaurant on East 8th (just off Main Street) and the thing that kept coming into my mind was that it was a “nice cafe”.  I suppose they chose the right name.  It’s not exactly the “Super Terrific Happy Cafe” but it’s also not the “Dreary Cafe from h-e-double-hockey-sticks”.

Vosges Haut-Chocolat (Las Vegas – Caesars Palace)

It’s no secret that if you’re a chocoholic in Vegas, there are plenty of spots where you can satisfy your sweet tooth.  Caesars Palace has a chocolate shop that first introduced me to the wonders of chocolate covered bacon… Vosges. Read the rest of this entry

White Spot (Metrotown) – Peanut Butter, Bacon & Jalapeño Bigger Burger

The White Spot at Metrotown is actually not really at Metrotown per se but rather a few blocks east of the large shopping complex.  It’s not to be confused with the nearby Triple O’s that’s only a few more blocks down the road either. Read the rest of this entry

The Apron – Breakfast at the Westin Wall Centre

The Apron is a chic little lounge/restaurant located just off the lobby of the Westin Wall Centre in Richmond and was previously extolled for being graced by the presence of creative Executive Chef Hamid Salimian.  Chef Hamid has since returned to Diva at the Met (see our post here) so no doubt, some of the menu items have changed since then.

Edible Canada at the Market – A Tribute to Canadian Bacon

If you’ve been reading some of my previous posts, you’ll probably get the idea that I like bacon (and chocolate)… so it really shouldn’t be much of a surprise that when I heard about the Tribute to Canadian Bacon at the Edible Canada take out window, I had to try it out when we visited Granville Island recently.

The Buffet at River Rock – Unlimited Chocolate Covered Bacon

The Buffet at River Rock is a sprawling 260 seat restaurant located on the 2nd floor above the River Rock Casino in Richmond… gotta love the spiral escalator – reminds me of the one they have at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas.  Read the rest of this entry
