Shaughnessy Restaurant – Niçoise Salad

We’ve dined at the Shaughnessy Restaurant located adjacent to VanDusen Gardens many times in the past. It’s a great place to grab a bite before walking it off in the gardens.

Nomad: Beef Oxtail & Onion Soup

I’ve been hearing some really good things about Nomad. This airy and industrial-chic eatery is located on the busy Main Street corridor and has tall ceilings which allow an ample amount of light to come in through their large west-facing windows.

Blue Water Cafe: Seafood Tower

Blue Water Cafe, located in Yaletown, has been one of our favourite restaurants since our first visit. In the past, we’ve often enjoyed their single tier Shellfish Plateau. However, on this occasion, we set our sights on their signature Seafood Tower.

Seasons in the Park (QE Park) – Reminiscing About Summer

With autumn quickly creeping up on Vancouver this year, I wanted to reminisce about our visit to Seasons in the Park back in the early parts of summer. After all, what better place is there to visit during the changing seasons in Vancouver?

Wayfarer Restaurant (Cannon Beach Road Trip 2016)

A few years ago, we took a road trip down the Oregon coast. But because we were in such a rush, we didn’t get a chance to stay and spend some quality time at Cannon Beach. On our road trip to Portland this year, we knew we needed to correct this and decided to focus just on Cannon Beach.

Supermarine (Dine Out 2016)

Supermarine is a newish restaurant that opened up in the former location of Abigail’s Party in Kits. There’s still remnants of Abigail’s in this tiny restaurant (sister restaurant to Wildebeest) as can be seen in the names of some of the cocktails as well as the name that appears on the bill that you receive at the end of your meal.

Lift Bar and Grill – Coal Harbour View

Despite living in Vancouver for all of my life, I don’t get down to Coal Harbour very often. So when I had a chance to spend a sunny fall day downtown, I made sure to take a leisurely stroll around the neighbourhood.

The Teahouse – Scenic Views and Seafood Galore

The Teahouse makes the perfect pit stop while enjoying the dazzling views from Stanley Park. We stopped by for a visit last June after hiking around Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver. After a short jaunt across the Lion’s Gate Bridge, we luckily found parking right outside the restaurant.

Yew Seafood + Bar (Brunch)

I’m not sure why, but lately, we’ve been getting caught up in parade traffic… first, we got caught up in the Chinese New Year Parade when we went down to visit Phnom Penh in Chinatown, then we got caught up in the St. Patrick’s Day Parade trying to get down to Yew Seafood + Bar for a brunch visit.

Boulevard Kitchen & Oyster Bar – Crispy Sticky Chicken Wings

When I first heard that they closed Fleuri at the Sutton Place Hotel, I thought… “Oh no! No more chocolate buffet!”. Truth be told, it’s been well over a decade since I last visited and tried their chocolate buffet. So perhaps it’s a good thing that they tried to reinvent the place – there’s just so much chocolate that one person can eat.
