Sushi S Japanese Restaurant

Hello Everyone!

After viewing apartments with Phil and his agent, we randomly decided to go dinner at Sushi S which is located along Willingdon at a random corner spot. Parking spots are very limited but they do have set spots for each restaurant so people parking at that particular spot must be eating at that restaurant in order to park there. I've passed by this restaurant many times and it never appealed to me so I was not expecting much out of it. We asked our waitress whether they were Japanese but they are actually Korean. Which I'm not surprised because in Vancouver there's a lot of Japanese restaurants that are not owned by Japanese people.




Phil ordered several slices of Sashimi and he said it was thick and delicious!

Havana Restaurant & Gallery

Hello everyone!

So last week I went to Havana's for the first time with my friends and obviously Phil. I heard many things about their awesome Sangrias so I was really excited to give this place a try. This restaurant is located on the busy street of Commercial. Parking was not too bad but during busy hours it might be difficult, so I recommend car pooling with your buddies if you are planning to go. My friend mentioned that it usually gets extremely busy during 6 but we were lucky enough to beat the rush and was able to get a table right away.

Bubble World-Richmond

Hello food lovers!

So Bubble World has always been our GO TO place when we can't figure out where to go for food. The food is always good, drinks are always on point and the service never disappoints. To be honest, my last few visits has not been as great as before, but it never bugged me that much until yesterdays visit. So I joined Phil after I was off work and we ordered right when I got there, since it was nearly 8pm already. We sat approximately 15-20 mins...and usually our drinks would've been ready...We thought maybe it's busy so we waited for a bit longer...still nothing came. Our main waitress was busy, so we asked this other waitress who walked by to check up on our order. Apparently our waitress messed something up and didn't process our order over. The fact was not because she forgot, the fact our waitress did not come by and apologize to us was just unacceptable to me. We also tried to call her over a couple of times and she would pretend to not see us and just walk away. I really don't know what was wrong with her so I didn't even bother asking her for anything anymore. The other waitress, who checked up on our order even apologized for the OTHER person's mistake. Usually the waitresses at Bubble World are very nice, but this person was just rude.

Okay, enough of the ranting.

So for the food, I just ordered something simple & easy, Meat sauce on Rice (Approx. $5.95) with my usual Honey Milk Tea with Pearls.

When I got my food, I noticed that the bowl was not what they usually use. Because from what I remember from before, they used a bigger bowl. I don't know if it's the bowls illusion, but I thought the portion was smaller than before. Overall the tastes was still great and the drink was on point like usual.

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
