Because I can’t celebrate my birthday without a lil Thomas Haas

Last year, Nafiza bought me the best birthday flower this girl has ever got. This year, no flowers are necessary, because Thomas Haas recently announced that it would bring back my favorite Thomas dessert during my birth month, May: Stilton Cheesecake. Creamy, cheesy, perfectly firm, lightly sweet with that little blue, fermented twist. Love. It!…

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. We tried the Mango Bongo bingsoo(Nafiza debated for a night between the Mango and the Tiramisu bingsoo….

Lady M: Is it ladylike if you eat from a to-go box?

As you probably know, Lady M is an ultra-luxe cake boutique with stores mostly on the East Coast, and Southeast Asia. They specialize in mille crepes, which is a cake made by painstakingly making a tall stack of thin crepes with layers of cream between each crepe. The type of cake I will happily shell…

I saw Santa Claus, and his name is Thomas Haas

It’s winter break and I’m back in Vancouver!! After being away for a few months, I always like to check out new places, visit old haunts and see how the city has changed. Naturally, no trip back to Vancity is complete without a visit to Thomas Haas. This time, I went just a couple of…

Like a true fishermen, Taiyaki at On Yogurt

I think this post is another example of the length I am willing to go for food. Picture this, I am about a day away from leaving Vancouver, feeling a little sick with a cold that is slowly taking hostage of my nose and mouth, and it was a typical rainy Vancouver day. Instead of…

Thomas, my love, we meet again

I think there should be a rule somewhere, a foodie trip to Vancouver is not complete without a visit to Thomas Haas. During my trip, I just so happened to be in the neighborhood. Since it was still quite early in the day, I decided to visit Thomas, for nostalgia’s sake. (Thomas Haas’s business hours are…

So Matcha Love at Chicco Cafe

It is only after I moved away from Vancouver that I realized how much I love Asian desserts. You never know what you’re missing until it’s gone. Chicco Cafe is part of the Gyozaking restaurant group that also owns Gyoza King(never been), Gyo-O in Richmond(LOOOVVEEE this place!) and G-men Ramen Shop(awesome ramen!). Chicco Cafe is a…

Beautiful Tacos at Tacomio

Every once in a while, the craving for tacos hit. Those are unbearable, really. I usually just end up hustling down to Gastown, all the while telling myself tacos aren’t exactly the healthiest food in the world. Still. Vancouver seems to hold a sizable obsession for tacos. Yay! There are quite a few taco shops,…

An Earnest Love for Earnest Ice Cream

A few posts back, I said I will discuss my love for Earnest Ice Cream, my favorite ice cream parlor in Vancouver. Here it is. I keep my word, especially when it comes to food. To illustrate my love for Earnest: I had the matcha ice cream in the photo to the left on the…

Snow Cream at Icepik Shavery

I heard about Icepik Shavery the same place I hear about most of the places I end up going to: Instagram. The joint is near where my brother works so one day after work, I hitched a bus ride up Joyce and walked over…and past it the first time around. I doubled back, found the…

Birthday Breakfast at Thomas Haas

Once upon a time, there was a girl, she did not like flowers, and she did not find them pretty. She did not broadcast this fact, because she did not want people to find her weird. Still, when a naive boy sent her flowers once, she slammed the door shut and muttered, “XXX!” She still…

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…
