Passion8 Dessert Cafe: Bingsoo and Injeolmi Toast

In the second part of my recent Korean food date with Nafiza, we hiked up four blocks on Cambie from the Canada line station and finally visited Passion8 Dessert Cafe, after eyeing it for monttthhhsss…It was so worth it.

A Nibble at Haru Korean Kitchen

Honey, I’m home!! After four months away in DC, I’m finally back in Vancouver and eager to try out new places that sprung up in my absence.

Let me show you the world…with food at Compass Rose

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…

Seoul Cafe, Burnaby: Not Quite Soul Food

I love Korean food. I love the spice, the flavours, and how vegetables become so delicious with a bit of gochujang and some sesame oil (with garlic and chili flakes). Seoul Cafe in Burnaby popped up on my IG feed and I liked what I saw so I decided to go there for a date…
