Splash Bar & Bento (Hawaii 2016) – Supersized Appies

The Sheraton Princess Kaiulani hotel has their pool area located right in front of their entrance. It’s a bit sheltered from the busy foot traffic on Kalakaua Avenue as it’s set back and behind some shopfronts so it still relatively private. Just off the pool area is one of the hotel’s restaurants, appropriately named, Splash Bar & Bento.

River’s Reach Pub

For some reason, I’ve been hitting up the local pubs in New West lately for lunch. It has nothing to do with drinking… I’m just looking for someplace new to eat and New West seems to have quite a few pubs. Read the rest of this entry

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.

Union Jack Public House – Jack’s Signature Stuffed Yorkies

Union Jack Public House is located in the old Moonrakers Neighbourhood Pub location.  I’ve never been to Moonrakers before but it looks like they did a pretty good job on the renos… plenty of dark wooden tables and large tvs on the walls.

Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar – Appies and Drinks

It’s been a while since our first visit to Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar.  We honestly had trouble deciding what to have on the menu so we just opted for a whole bunch of dishes to share. Read the rest of this entry

Wings Restaurants & Pubs

My first visit to Wings (not to be confused with House of Wings a few blocks away) was on a late December weekday.  The lighting inside this pub is quite bright but the decor is mainly dark tones with black tables & seating, and dark coffered ceilings. Read the rest of this entry

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

Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar (Fairview)

Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar recently opened up a new location on West Broadway kitty corner to the Cactus Club.  The large restaurant was pretty dead when we arrived for lunch on a sunny October Sunday which gave us ample opportunity to take in all of the colours and textures in the interior design.
