No-fuss dinner at Tokyo Joe Sushi

Tokyo Joe Sushi is a small, no-fuss, pay at the counter sushi spot in central Richmond. They are great for takeout sushi or a quick lunch/dinner. I like to go there for their sashimi and special sushi rolls. Tokyo Joe also offer other items like teriyakis, udons and others. It’s not really a place for…

Rollin’ into 2017 with IceQueen

Happy New Year! I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday with lots of amazing eats and dranks and celebration with loved ones. In terms of New Year Resolutions, particularly those like ‘lose 10 pounds,’ ‘go to the gym’…I adopt the mindset of: let nature take its course. I actually eat quite healthy(fruit and veggie…

Xi’an Cuisine: A Food Court Gem

I recently had an opportunity to enjoy a week in Vancouver, so off I went and I schemed as much as possible so that I get to visit some old haunts and explored new discoveries in the few days I was there. I’ve got a few posts lined up to share the fruits of my labor….

Lobster and So-so Dishes at Delicious Cuisine

This is a bit of a funny story. I was Skyping with my mom one night while I was in Ottawa, when she told me she had steamed lobster with glutinous oil rice with her colleagues that night. That sounds nice, no? Well, I heard that when I was neck-deep in work, it was 11pm at…

Taiwanese cravings at Chef Hung Noodle

As you may have read, I am Taiwanese-Canadian. Every once in a while, I will get a craving for Taiwanese food. This is the place that I tend to visit to get my fix. Note that this restaurant is far from an adequate representation of Taiwanese food, but I have enjoyed my visits here. Chef…

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…

Dim Sum Time: Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine

The family went for dim sum again this week. So of course for everyone’s viewing pleasure and totally not because I’m a #foodie that needs to take pictures of everything she eats, I took photos. Yuan’s Shanghai Serendipity Cuisine makes mostly Shanghainese food. I wish I can give you a point-form list of differences between…

Parfait Time at Mazazu Crepe

I often see people enjoying the green tea parfait from Mazazu Crepe on Instagram. Naturally, I put it on my food to-do list (Yes, I have one. Yes, it’s long. No, I will not tell you how much I’ve actually ate off that list!). I was in Aberdeen Centre this past week and wanted something…

The Richmond Diet: Dim Sum at Empire Seafood Restaurant

For Vancouverites that are Chinese or Taiwanese, dim sum is like a separate food group for us. Dim sum is Cantonese, it literally means “snack,” something you have just a little of. With the many fantastic dim sum restaurants in Richmond, it’s basically inevitable that we eat dim sum frequently. Like weekly. If not more….
