“Milo Dinosaur”? No, there’s no relation to the famous purple anthropomorphic dinosaur on tv… it’s really just an iced malt beverage topped off with more undissolved chocolate malt powder. It’s actually quite refreshing on a hot day due to the ice cream.
Tropika used to be located in Aberdeen Centre before it, and Northern Delicacy, were closed down for failing to pay their rent. While not the best Malaysian restaurant in the Lower Mainland, it does fill a void when you’re hankering for some roti.
Penang Delight currently has 2 locations in Vancouver… both nestled in seemingly odd residential areas. I suppose the rent must be cheaper and, if the restaurant is good enough, people will find their way here.
There are days when you just say to yourself, “Today’s a roti day!” Fortunately, Malay Curry House is relatively close to us. Given how much we enjoy Malaysian food, it’s surprising that we haven’t had food from here for over 18 months (see our last post when we had take-out). Read the rest of this entry
If you’ve ever seen a zombie apocalypse movie, you’ll have an inkling of what we went through one early March weekend on the North Shore. But before we get to that, let me explain why we were in North Vancouver in the first place.
So we weren’t really planning on going to Banana Leaf for Dine Out this year but we just happened to find ourselves nearby and we were getting hungry. It was fairly packed on this weeknight so we were lucky that they must hold back a couple of tables for walk-ins.
So, it’s summertime finally in Vancouver and that can only mean one thing… reruns (or in this case, revisits). We have quite a few revisit posts that we haven’t had the time to get to yet. The great thing about revisits is that there’s no pressure… you can just sit back and relax as you enjoy your food.
Our first revisit is to Tamarind Hill back in mid April. We enjoyed our last visit to Tamarind Hill so much that we wound up coming back less than a month later… and we wound up in the exact same table too. Read the rest of this entry
There’s a ton of places to find fish and chips in Steveston but what do you do if you have a hankering for something a little different? What about Malaysian food on the pier? Fortunately, the one Malaysian restaurant in Steveston happens to be right on the pier (albeit a bit hidden) located near the Hog Shack.
