Alright you can call me mad, but despite being Asian, I LOVE my meat and potatoes. In fact, I’ve gotten myself into some trouble before because of my love for potatoes. Anyways, I couldn’t have been more excited to try out this next joint, and I apologize for the photo as it’s not among the [...]
I was on hunt for a special birthday cake, and didn’t want to settle for anything less than the best. That’s when I was recommended to check into Black Star Pastry in Newtown. Sure enough, I quickly found many rave reviews crowning their Strawberry Watermelon Cake with Rose Cream as “the best cake [...]
Looking for a quick lunch? Or just in the area? Just outside Central Station, in Sydney, and just outside the “Tunnel” that connects Central Station to the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS), you’ll find Saigon Delight. I walk through this tunnel every morning to get to work and their “fresh” looking signboard always catches my [...]
I think it was quite recently that Vancouver started going back to the more basic indulgences. And what’s the most classic one of all? Donuts! We all remember growing up watching Homer Simpson devour them like they were the best thing since sliced bread.
We had just finished the Grouse Grind, and to treat ourselves [...]
If there was one dining experience that got me really excited about eating in Sydney it would be this one. Because I was unable to experience a dinner at the famous Tetsuya’s that EVERYONE in Sydney talks about, my local friend suggested trying Three Blue Ducks.
Now being a foreigner, I [...]
Tucked away in the industrial area in Richmond you can find this little restaurant, Nooch. This place is an excellent place to get a sandwich for lunch if you work in the area, since there are not too many restaurants around. Sami recently dined and blogged here too (read [...]
I’m back in Vancouver and was setting up a catch-up lunch with some of my friends who work close by. We tend to keep going to the same places, so I thought I’d look up something different for us to try. A sandwich cafe in Richmond? — Makes me miss the old Cucumber Cafe that [...]
Not quite Japanese cuisine, despite the name. With a name like Hokkaido Dairy Farm, you probably don’t expect it to be a breakfast cafe, but that’s exactly what it is. Its interior features decor that’s more modern, but other than that, it’s pretty much the same as every other breakfast cafe.
On the bright side, [...]
A hipster Hong Kong cafe. At first, I figured Cafe Matchbox to be a typical foreigner cafe, but oddly enough, their pretty little menus only list items in Chinese. You can ask for an English menu, but it’s printed on a plain blue paper.
There are two locations, both in Causeway Bay, and I [...]
Thierry Patisserie in downtown Vancouver fills what seems to be an emerging niche in the coffee market: a classier espresso cafe which focuses more on fancy dessert offerings rather than coffee and espresso. The decor is reminiscent of Thomas Haas Patisserie, with its wood-based decor, small round tables, and even the tiny airplane-sized [...]
