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…

Bingsoo Take 2: Midam Cafe

Okay so *looks outside* summer is not quite here (that’s okay!) but since places like Snowy Village (which we haven’t been to yet) are all the rage right now, I thought I should offer some alternatives if waiting two hours in a line up is not quite your thing. (It’s not mine.) I’ve been to…

Chimney Cake Adventure at The Kürtösh

On the second part of my Kerrisdale trip, I went to the newly-opened The Kürtösh. I’ve had the kürtösh, otherwise known as a “chimney cake,” before from a little pastry shop in Davie Village. The one in Davie Village only made one flavor, I think it was lemon and sugar, so I was curious about…

An Eggy Pidè at Sofra Mediterranean Kitchen

I was in Kerrisdale the other day to buy a gift. I have heard about the pidè from Sofra Mediterranean Kitchen a long time ago(Thank you Mijune from @followmefoodie), so I was curious and eager to try it. According to Google, pidè is a traditional Turkish flatbread, kind of like a pizza. You can add a variety of…

Prado Cafe

So between Jamjar and Kishimoto we had a lot of hours to fill and we, being who we are, migrated to the nearest picturesque cafe we could find. In this case, it was Prado Cafe. It has an airy design so that even when the cafe is crowded, the high ceilings and many windows give…

A Virtuous Poke + Matcha Parfait at Shishinori

Many of you are probably familiar with Shishinori. I’m a fan of their very healthy and beautifully presented plates as well. Since I still haven’t satisfied my sushi craving since coming back to Vancouver, I went back to Shishinori for a visit. Shishinori is quite a small cafe, only six tables I believe. The restaurant…

Dessert Breakfast at Fondway Cafe

Nafiza and I had one of our foodie dates recently. We were really productive and we hit many spots. This is the aperitif, otherwise known as “Teng-was-too-hungry-and-had-to-eat-or-starve-to-death.” Ahem. Now, I have been dyyying to go to Fondway Cafe. Nafiza has already went, and based on her review and what everyone else was saying about Fondway,…

Pearl Fever Tea House: Surrey Location

Surrey can be a difficult place to find bubble tea. I don’t know if it’s because there isn’t much demand (I don’t believe that for one second though) or business-people don’t want to take the risk of opening a bubble tea place but there are not enough stores here. Anecdote: One year, the night before…

Bubble and Squish at Bubble Queen

One of my hobbies, other than eating, is looking for new food to try on Instagram. One of the things that I saw that got my heart racing was this bubble waffles with mochi. The other day, I was with the family, including my aunt that has a major sweet tooth. So I suggested that…

An Ode to Thomas Haas

Oh Thomas, how can I put my love for you into words… I’ve been going to Thomas Haas longer than I remember. Each visit always fills me with happiness and warmth because Thomas’s pastries and cakes always maintain their excellent quality. I have not had a bad experience at Thomas. I dragged Nafiza there a…

Putting the Ch in Che-Licious

It has been a busy week so apologies for the late post continuing our 1st (of hopefully many) foodie trip. After Banana Leaf, we went to Che-licious which is right next door (almost) for dessert. If you don’t know what Che is (I’m missing an accent), Che-Licious prettily handily defines it: “Chè” refers to Vietnamese…
