Penang Delight Cafe – Milo Dinosaur

“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 (Lansdowne)

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.

Banana Leaf (Dine Out Vancouver 2014)

It’s that time again for Dine Out Vancouver!  So many restaurants… so much food!  Speaking of copious amounts of food, our first Dine Out for this year was for a restaurant that we’ve been to before for Dine Out… Banana Leaf on Broadway. Read the rest of this entry

Penang Delight Cafe (Marpole)

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.

Kaya Malay Bistro – Solid Malaysian Food in Fairview

Back in September, we revisited Kaya Malay Bistro with some friends (see our first visit here).

Malay Curry House – Lamb Curry and Roti

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).

Banana Leaf (Kits) – Lunch Tasting Menu

While there’s five different Banana Leaf locations, until recently, our visits have been limited to their West Broadway location.  Wait, I should be more specific because they have 2 locations on West Broadway… I mean the one in the Fairview areaRead the rest of this entry

Tamarind Hill (North Van) – Escape From the North Shore

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.

Banana Leaf – Dine Out Vancouver 2013

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.

Kaya Malay Bistro

Kaya Malay Bistro, located near A Taste of Vietnam along West Broadway, is a relatively new restaurant that has opened up.  Never one to pass up a good roti, when we found ourselves in search for some lunch in Fairview, I couldn’t help but stop by. Read the rest of this entry

Tamarind Hill (New West) – Char Kuey Teow

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

Kari House Restaurant – Malaysian Food in Steveston

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.
