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 [...]
It’s funny that Wynnie just made a post about doughnuts back in Vancouver! Actually, we at Cameras and Cuisines have had many doughnut adventures. This includes my favourite doughnuts in the WORLD at Lola’s [Seattle, WA], Brian’s visit to Cafe Du Monde [New Orleans, Louisiana], and Wynnie’s [...]
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 [...]
Did you know that Phnom Penh does take out?! You know what that means? That means that when you’re dropping by Chinatown, or just in the area but need to rush out, there’s no need to skimp on your craving for Phnom Phenh’s famous chicken wings! These wings live up to their name as the [...]
Oh macarons! Last year I was introduced to you when backpacking through Europe… little did I know that just a couple months later and a full year later, that you would be all the rage in Vancouver.
Soirette is one of the newest Macaron places to town and located fairly far away from [...]
I love almost all French pastries especially macarons. I frequently treat myself to these cute, tiny, sweet cookies. To get my macaron fix I frequently get them at Saint Germain Bakery, which might sound a bit strange since they are Chinese bakery. Surprisingly this place makes a decent macaron and for a decent price! For [...]
Best Gelato in Sydney? With awesome reviews via The Sydney Morning Herald and Urban Spoon, there was no need to decide on anywhere else. Gelato Messina is a gelateria that makes all their gelato from raw and natural ingredients, from scratch! They’ll even bake their own apple [...]
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 [...]
After being completely addicted to the OrganicLives chocolate macaroon, I decide that it would be healthier for my bank account if I just made them myself. Along the way I also found another delicious recipe for vanilla macaroons and now I am even more addicted! Some raw macaroons require a dehydrator but not [...]
When asked about great Italian cuisine, I rarely direct people to downtown. Not to say downtown has a lack of tasty Italian restaurants, because it doesn’t, but I find that the one must travel to the heart of an ethnic community to find the best authentic foods. There are actually a few Italian communities spread [...]
