Snack Shack - Lay's Kettle Cooked Tzatziki Chips

Hey Everyone,

So this is one of those new flavours being voted on for a new Lay's flavour, and out of the rest of the flavours, this one seemed to be the one to go with as some of the other flavours seem to have been done already.



Food Court Corner- Chun Hing Cuisine

Hey Everyone,

Went to eat at Yaohan food court as a last minute decision when looking for a cheap meal with Jess last time. Jess went with korean food while I ended up picking Chun Hing Cuisine, one of the many choices there that offer the "rice or noodle with 3 or 4 items". As with my ribs decision making process, I went with whichever one had the longer line. 



Their competitor next door had the same deal going on as seen in the picture below.



This is definitely good value for $7 as they load up your container full of food! Their selection looked more appetizing than their competitor as well, so I decided to eat here.

Earls Kitchen & Bar

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday Phil and I had a super late lunch and we were right in time for Earl's happy hour menu. We went to the Burnaby location and I love how I can still enjoy their patio in the middle of September. Summer ain't over just yet!


I was so glad to see Sangria being on the happy hour menu. I ordered a White Wine Peach Sangria for $4.00, it was soooooo delicious. It was fruity and refreshing, just what I needed at the time!

We saw BBQ Pork Buns on the menu and we were really curious how they made this, so we decided to order two to try. It was surprisingly really good. It has a bit of spice to it but it made the whole thing extremely flavorful.

BBQ Pork Buns $2.00/Each

Cattle Cafe


Hello my lovely food lovers :)

Back with another blog today all about this Cattle Cafe that is located on Kingsway. I've only been to this location once before and from what I recall, it wasn't the best. The other night Phil and I just finished with an appointment and we were actually craving for Pho, but ended up for cafe food instead. First impression of the restaurant, layout is tight and not the cleanest. So when we got into the restaurant, we were directed to a table right away but because of the spacing between the pathway and the tables being very tight, the waitress had to move aside for us to pass by. Being an interior design student, that is definitely a big no no for me. After being seated, our surroundings was definitely not pleasant. We got a window seat at the corner and once we sat down, the side edges of the windows were filled with dust and was extremely dirty. When we were deciding what to order, Phil had the urge of leaving because he didn't like the atmosphere and didn't know what to order. But obviously we didn't leave! Otherwise I wouldn't be blogging about it right now. It gets better, so don't be sad just yet...just continue reading along... lol

Food Court Corner- Seoul Express Korean Food

Hello ladies & gents,

Welcome back to my blog, today I bring you our experience at a food court booth that is located in Yaohan Centre.

After being with Phil for almost 4 years, his family has persuaded me to try spicy food ever since. I think the fact that I was surrounded by different types of Chinese food at the time, made me want to order something other than Chinese food. I ordered their Bibimbap, which has a bit of spice to it, but after getting my food, I decided to put extra hot sauce in it, with teriyaki sauce around the edge of the stone pot. I think it is definitely necessary to add the extra sauces, otherwise the overall dish would be a tad dry.

Seoul Express is located within the food court of Yaohan Centre. Parking can be frustrating at times, depending whether you go during peak hours or not. I went there for dinner and it was pretty busy since people did last minute grocery shopping at Osaka and people like me, decides to eat dinner there.

Smoke N Bones

Hey Everyone,

Jess and I went to Playland on the last day of PNE and my main goal was to eat some tasty ribs from their Rib Fest! Last year or the year before, I tried the Gator one as that was one of the ones with the longest lines. All 4 of the stands have trophies and banners for their various awards, so it was hard to decide on which one to go for. I go by the logic of whichever one has the longest line must mean that their food is the most popular. That logic served me well last time, and this time I went to try the second of the two with the longest lines, Smoke N Bones.

Yah Yah Ya Ramen

Hey Everyone,

Recently checked out Yah Yah Ya Ramen, a new ramen place in Richmond (finally)! Usually I’d only go to GMen for ramen if I’m in Richmond, as the other restaurants aren’t very good in Richmond. I believe this place only opened up in the last few months, so there haven’t been too many posts on this yet. It is located to the right of Richmond Sushi in Union Square.
