Memory Corner

Hey everyone!

A month ago, Phil & I went to a Taiwanese Restaurant across from Richmond Center called Memory Corner. We're always looking for new Taiwanese restaurants in Richmond because we always tend to go to Bubble World when we don't know where to go. This time around, we searched up on Zomato in advance to see what other Taiwanese Restaurants are in the area. The ratings and reviews look pretty positive for Memory Corner so we decided to give it a try!

When we first stepped in, we were instantly intrigued by some of the displays shown in their restaurant. At the back of the restaurant were two Chinese looking dolls that were being displayed at the back. Their menu was also written and designed in a very traditional style.

Grimm's Gourmet & Deli

Hey guys!

So the other day I went on a mini road trip to Joffre Lake with 3 of my other friends. It was approximately a 3 hour drive to Joffre Lake from Vancouver so we made several pit stops to take bathroom and food breaks. We stopped by Whistler around 8:30am and Subway was unfortunately closed so our next stop was at Pemberton, B.C. We were hoping there would be a Subway there but there were only a few shops within that area. We ended up getting sandwiches from Grimm's Gourmet & Deli. It's a local deli shop and it was pretty busy compared to other restaurants around the area. They had a lot of options on their menu and I ended up getting their 3 meat sub. We ate the sandwich when we arrived to the top of the mountain and it was just amazing. The view was great and the sandwich tasted great. Filled with meat and the veggies were fresh. It was a great option to bring to a hike. The 3 meat sub costed approximately $7.95 and it was an extremely filling sub for under $10.00.

Enjoy!

Legends Pub

Hey Everyone,

Jess and I recently went to the relocated Legends Pub, which is now at Blundell and Garden City. 


I have been to Legends at their previous location but since they moved, we had to check it out. The nice new interior is pretty nice!

Cafe de l'Orangerie

Hey guys!

The other day I went to find Phil for lunch during his lunch break. I met him at Cafe de l'Orangerie which is located on West 73rd, near the Airport Square Building. This place is Japanese owned and the staff was very friendly.

For drink, I ordered the Matcha Green Tea Latte ($4.55). I thought it tasted great but was disappointed that they didn't draw anything on my latte like the one I had from Cafe Joie. But the main thing was the drink itself and I enjoyed it very much. 

For appetizers, we ordered their Poutine Orangerie-Style- small size ($6.25). It's fries with homemade beef stew sauce & mozzarella cheese. I LOVED this, the beef stew tasted amazing and it just went really well together with the fries and the cheese. I highly recommend ordering this to share with friends and family as an appetizer.

Yuu Japanese Tapas

Hey guys!

The other day I went to Yuu Japanese Tapas for dinner with my friends. It was a last minute decision so we had no clue what to expect from this restaurant.

I filmed my first ever food vlog! Check out our video HERE ! Pls comment & subscribe if you guys like it and follow us on YouTube if you want to follow us on our food adventures :) 

We want to start vlogging our food adventures so it's more fun & you can actually check out the space & food in a more direct way other than photos!

Anyways, we were planning to go to a Japanese restaurant on Bridgeport but they actually close on Wednesdays, therefore we had to change up the location to Yuu Japanese Tapas. I've never been to this restaurant before nor have I ever heard anyone mentioning anything about this restaurant so we really didn't know what to expect. 


After looking at the menu, we were all certain we wanted to get their Ramen. They had lots of options on their menu but the Ramen page really stood out among the other pages. 

My friend got #44 Shio "Salt" Ramen in clear broth made with plenty of bone & veggie ($8.95)

G-men @ NanChuu Ramen Izakaya

Hey Everyone,

Had a ramen craving recently so we decided to hit up G-men for dinner. Now G-men is located on Alexandra, so that undoubtedly means if you're going at a busy time like 7pm, you're going to have a bad time looking for a parking spot! Took me so long to find a spot, I ended up settling for street pay parking. Their lot at the back of the restaurant is packed full, and then some, meaning all those illegals parked in the driveways of the parking lot where there is no actual spot. 


Luckily the rest of our group had already got a table inside, so I was able to join them right away. If you don't have someone grabbing a table ahead of time, the wait is likely half an hour or more!


My go-to choice for ramen is always a miso flavour broth, so I ordered the Tonkotsu Miso Ramen $9.50 with added Ajitama (Marinated Egg) $1.50 and Butter & Corn $2.50.

Rocky Point Ice Cream

Hey everyone!

From our last blog post I talked about the Food Cart Festival that happens every Sunday throughout the duration of Summer. Today I'll be talking about another Food Truck Vendor that I stumbled upon last Sunday during our Cherry On Top event hosted by East Side Flea.

There were A LOT of dessert options at the festival, but I finalized my decision on Rocky Point Ice Cream. They had a lot of variety in terms of flavours. I was really tempted to just get my usual Salted Caramel Ice cream but there were several people in front of me and they got the Raspberry Lime Mojito Sorbet and it looked too good to pass up.

I got the kid size ($3.00) and it was the perfect size for me since I had a huge sandwich by The Tasty Torpedo shared between me & Phil. 
The flavour is very unique and has a sweet and sour taste to it. At first it tasted great but near the mid section it got a bit too sour for me to continue. I think the lime flavour was a tad strong but overall it was still a unique flavour and it was still worth a try. 

I will definitely give this place a try again because I don't want to just rate this place based on ONE ice cream flavour. Overall this place is a good place to visit for a summer treat!
