Breakfast on Cambie at Yolks

Hello! *tap, tap* Is this thing still on? First of all, I apologize for disappearing! Being sick and dealing with a bunch of deadlines in the New Year is not fun and it took me longer than I thought to recover. Also, looking through the blog, I was shocked to realize that we do not…

Dim Sum and Ceviche: Brunch at China Chilcano

In my restaurant research for DC, I noticed that Jose Andres has a lot of restaurants in DC. After my amazing experience at Zaytinya, I was eager to try China Chilcano. China Chilcano is very unique, it’s a Chinese-Peruvian fusion restaurant. Their menu offers a nice mix of both Chinese and Peruvian dishes and I…

Hello DC, Let’s Brunch!

Hello from the District!! I’ve recently relocated to Washington, DC so now we have a new blog feature: foodie posts on DC!! I’ve been running around like a headless chicken for the last month, planning and actually making this move. Even though my apartment still looks like a bomb blew off in there, I made…

Chambar: Two doors away and worlds apart

Brunch Feastin’ at Jam cafe

Nafiza and I have been scheming to visit Jam cafe, since we knew of its existence. Recently, we managed to coordinate, skipped both our dinners and headed on our adventure. Jam cafe, originally a popular breakfast spot in Victoria, took over Cafe Medina’s old spot on Beatty Street. It is literally two doors down from…

Feeling pampered at au comptoir

After our wonderful brunch at Linh Cafe, we thought it would be just wasteful of the car’s gas if we just left Kitsilano without doing anything else. Plus we had to have dessert, so we made the short trip to Au Comptoir for sweets. Au Comptoir is gorgeous. The decor is a mix of a…

Brunchin’ at Linh Cafe

As a firm believer that breakfast food, particularly eggs in any way, shape, or form, is appropriate at any time of the day, I love brunch. I think brunch is the best part of the day and I sincerely wish restaurants will offer brunch 7 days a week, rather than during weekends. I recently got…
