Fondway Cafe

Hey everyone!

Before Christmas hit, a new Burnaby Taiwanese style cafe opened up across from Metrotown. This is no ordinary Taiwanese cafe because you're probably thinking "bubble tea & popcorn chicken". This is a legit cafe that serves, tea, coffee, sandwiches, waffles, etc. We were invited by Fondway Cafe & Chobee PR to their food media launch event and we were extremely excited to be able to attend. The whole restaurant was closed for this special media event so we had the whole place to check out and try their food & drinks.

When you first enter, on the right hand side, there is a whole wall filled with different types of tea. In front of each tea can, they include a description & price per grams. We were able to try out a few drinks they prepared for us and all of them were extremely delicious. When you smell the flavor, it smells very strong BUT the taste of the tea is very subtle.




Sekai Udon Bar

Hi Everyone!

Happy Chinese New Year! I feel like I haven't blogged in the longest time. I've been so busy with everything in life, I literally had no time to blog. BUT I am officially back and I have a few lined up blog posts which will be coming out very soon! 

If you read my blogs, you would probably notice a bunch of my reviews are within Richmond. All my activities 80% of the time revolves around Richmond, so its hard to get out of there at times. During the weekend we went to Metrotown to shop and we came across this new restaurant that I personally never seen before. Its right under the food court and its a Udon Bar. They definitely renovated the interior and it looks very big and spacious. I was happy to see on their menu they also have sushi roll options. I was really craving for sushi but we decided to go for their weekend deal instead.

Their lunch special only happens on weekends from 11am-3pm. You can choose a Udon option, a rice option, soup or salad and it comes with two sides, all for $10.50.

Frites - Revisit

Hey Everyone,

Early last year we tried a poutine place called Frites and we thought it was good, but it wasn't amazing and did not seem very memorable, but recently we were invited to try them out again, so we did a revisit!

ORU Restaurant - The Fairmont Pacific Rim

Hey everyone!

Dineout Vancouver is back! There were so many options this year but we narrowed it down to a few restaurants we wanted to try. We went to Oru for our 5th year anniversary. Oru is located within the Fairmont Pacific Rim. They have a parking lot for guests and it costs approximately $14.00 to park. I would recommend taking the skytrain but if you are planning to dress all fancy to come here, you might as well drive and be more comfortable.

Fairmont Pacific Rim is a gorgeous hotel. Every detail from floor to ceilings were thought out and unique. Oru is located on the second floor to the left. Once you step up the stairs, you'll see this huge sign that says Oru. Then you'll see a narrow path down the hall and you'll see the hosts there to guide you in to your table. Phil and I thought the men who were working as hosts there were extremely good looking. They literally look like models to us. 

We sat at a table where we can clearly see the kitchen, and their kitchen is amazing. I took a panoramic picture of the kitchen down below for you guys to see. Their kitchen was very well lit, bright and clean. The staff in there looked very professional and I was stoked to try out the food. 

Their Dineout menu was $40.00 and you get to pick an appetizer, an entree & a dessert with the options provided.  (Pls note, the food photos were edited due to the dim lighting at the restaurant.)

Boston Pizza at Ironwood Plaza

Hey everybody!

The other day Phil and I went out to eat at Boston Pizza. I haven't been to Boston Pizza in a while and it was nice to see that they have this new 10 for $10 deal going on. They have a full page of 10 dishes for only $10.00 each. They also have 3 dessert options for $3.00 each. 

Their interior is like any other Boston Pizza. Every Boston Pizza has the same interior style and theme so once you walk in, you automatically knew this was a Boston Pizza. Similar to what Starbucks and McDonald's do nowadays. Maintaining the same standard for the interior so its easier for consumers to recognize and remember.  

I was really tempted to get one of their pastas but when I saw their cover with their Thai Chicken Wrap, I knew automatically I wanted to try it out! It sounds like a healthy option too, so why not? The only thing I was scared about was the spice level. They had a flame symbol next to it but I thought might as well give it a try and see how it goes.
