Sabai Thai: Thai Eats in Guildford

I’m sure there are plenty of good restaurants in Surrey… I just don’t have the need or desire to spend much time in the area. Well, we found ourselves in a 2 hour lineup for a book signing near Guildford one Saturday and decided to get some food in the area afterwards. That’s how we ended up at Sabai Thai.

Red Robin (Guildford Town Centre)

There used to be a time back in the 80’s when going out for gourmet burgers meant heading out to Red Robin. Many of the locations have closed over the years (probably due to the competition nowadays). We were starving and passing by the Guildford area so we stopped by for some grub.

Akari Japanese Restaurant – Newton

Knowing how I suffer from problems with directions, I made sure to Google Akari beforehand when I knew that I was going to be out in the Newton area.  Unfortunately, I must have misread something that said Akari was located in the Strawberry Hill Shopping Centre.  I must have driven around that complex for a good five minutes before I pulled over and checked my phone only to find that it’s located across the street from Strawberry Hill in the Scott 72 Centre.

Taco Bell (Guildford) – Spicy Chicken Crunchwrap

It feels like eons since the last time we were at Guildford Shopping Centre… and for good reason.  Living and working on the north side of the Fraser River means I rarely have a reason to cross one of the overcrowded bridges. Read the rest of this entry

Boston Pizza (Cloverdale) – Crispy Shrimp Tacos
