It’s foodies’ most favourite time of the year, Dine Out Vancouver! For those who don’t know, Dine Out is an annual event wherein participating restaurants have set menus for three course meals at various prices ($18, $28, $38). These prices are a bargain for most restaurants considering you get an appetizer, main entree, and dessert. [...]
I love chick flicks. Always have and always will. Call it the hopeless romantic in me. As an ode to them, I purposely left these next two NYC food entries for last. Let’s kick it off with a Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack classic.
Tina and I—along with Tina’s real sister Jen and [...]
It was strange, while we were in NYC we didn’t really have too much Asian food. If there’s one thing we do it better here in Vancouver, it’s definitely that. I guess we’re used to always having a plethora of delicious Asian cuisine at cheap prices within steps of wherever we are so we take it [...]
Have a sweet tooth? Well Momofuku Milk Bar will be right up your alley. The Milk Bar is one of David Chang’s five establishments scattered across the New York. I was lucky enough to also visit the Noodle Bar (see review here).
This little hole in the wall is literally [...]
You know that feeling when you don’t notice how many people have a certain thing until you actually buy it yourself? Well a similar thing happened to me. After visiting NYC, I slowly became apparent to the fact that various parts of the city are used repeatedly as sets for many movies and television shows. [...]
Right before Tina and I left for New York, we asked people for a list of places we just HAD TO try while we were in the city. And I’ll tell you, Shake Shack was the unanimous answer people gave us. There was a lot of hype put on this one particular burger joint (almost [...]
Hi everyone, Pat’s back from NYC and ready to share some awesome food adventure stories! To kick it off, let’s start off with the very first meal Tina and I had when we finished the long trek through the concrete jungle—Gray’s Papaya.
It was almost 9:00pm and we were starving and [...]
There’s a lot to love about this heritage site on the edge of Gastown, with its building just as full of character as its menu. The restaurant has a ton of rustic decor and plenty of seating since it also has a cozy lower floor. If you’re as lucky as us, you can get a [...]
After finishing one of our many design projects, we visited Acme Cafe for some celebratory food action. This restaurant can be found in Gastown right before you enter the Downtown East Side, and has a really retro, diner-like feel to it.
As we were seated right by the window, we witnessed many interesting [...]
After a lovely meal at Finch’s Tea & Coffee House one afternoon (see review here), it was absolutely necessary for us to go get something sweet as a pre-class snack so we hit up Cartems Donuterie (Pop-up Shop). We’ve heard a lot about this little spot recently and decided that we [...]
