New Year, New Site, More Sausages

Happy happy new year! Call me crazy, but I’ve got sausages on the brain right now but don’t we all really?  Chorizo, Bavarian, Italian, Kielbasa, Farmers, Andouille, Kale – you got it, I want it. There seems like no better time than the start of 2015 to profess my love for the sausage and its […]

A Sad Day (Sekai Udon Bar)

It is a sad day indeed when a restaurant that combines both the words ‘udon’ and ‘bar’ into one name manages to make dog food look delicious. The former home of a questionable All You Can Eat sushi restaurant, I was expecting to spend my Saturday afternoon at Metrotown feasting on extremely low grade fish […]

My Precious, My Precious

I don’t know about you, but this time of year always means one thing for certain.  It means I am going to be holed up in my room, wrapped up in layers upon layers of blankets, watching back to back viewings of Lord of the Rings. I’ve thought it a million times but I know […]

Bagel is the New Burger (Rosemary Rocksalt)

Maybe not quite, but Rosemary would almost have you convinced otherwise at her adorable Main Street home with her bagels as fat as my head and stuffed with more meat than my mouth knows what to do with. You won’t hear me complaining though because more meat is just the way Meg likes it. A […]

Oops!…I Did it Again (Tomokazu Sushi)

Call me a glutton for punishment.  Or just call me a glutton because here I was at Tomakazu on a Sunday night stuffing my face with rice balls by the fistful.  I hate myself. But yet I can’t stop.  I won’t stop.  This is my house, this is my rules.  So la da di da di, […]

Ride The Wave (Claypot Hot Pot & BBQ)

I’m giving up and I’m throwing the towel in because when it comes to hot pot in Vancouver, that is all that you can do. I’m done trying to stop myself from loving the pot because when we’re living in temperatures as cold as this, it’s a matter of survival. It’s time to ride the […]

Meg Dreams of Sushi (Shima-Ya)

The closest I’ll probably ever come to dining at Sukiyabashi Jiro’s restaurant in Japan, I ain’t even mad that I spent $31 on ten pieces of Nigiri and one Miso Soup. Okay, yes it stings a little but this is what happens when two bloggers come together on a Wednesday night – things start to get a little […]

Show Me Love (Sapporo Ramen Shogun)

I’ll say it once, I’ll say it a million times – show me love and I’m your girl. In a world where customer service is fast becoming a dying art and the tipping regime is getting outta control, it’s hard to blame a girl for falling for Shogun who treats her right. Even if the […]

Slut’s Spaghetti – For All My Single Ladies

If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it, Don’t be mad once you see that he want it. If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it. Wuh uh oh uh uh oh oh uh oh uh uh oh. Nigella’s Slut’s Spaghetti has always been special […]

This is War (Happy Valley)

Hide your wife, hide your kids.  Hide your grammy, hide your grampy because this is not just any war. Sunday dim sum is a special kind of war.  It is guerrilla warfare. Ambush, sabotage, hit and run – there is no escape because if you are one of those sad saps who has one of […]
