This place is busy and popular with the Korean crowd particularly after 7pm so either arrive early or make a reservation. It is nothing special inside with simple chairs and tables but the service is fast and the food is good. This is a busy place as demonstrated by the lady pile of korean side [..]

Apparently this restaurant is a venture by a previous chef at the popular Banana Leaf malaysian restaurant chain in Vancouver. On the bright side, it is a welcome addition to the otherwise relatively limited food options in New Westminster. Unfortunately, I think we had heard it was much better than Banana Leaf and we were [..]

After a day of wandering around and hill-climbing in San Francisco, D needed some delicious, savoury Asian food. She had tracked down Osha Thai as being one of the better Thai food options in the city, and as we were staying downtown, we decided to head to the 2nd Street location. Decorated in the new-Asian [..]

Saturday am – out for Dim Sum – let’s try a new place. A has been here before and she likes how it has convenient parking in a parkade ($1) and is right across the street from Sun Yat Sen gardens. Inside, this place is cavernous – you could have a wedding for 500 here; [..]

Yes, we’ve been here before, but this is totally one of our favourite ‘cheap eats’ places in Toronto. It has all the ambiance of an anatomy lab – but who cares – it has some of the best Chinese vegetarian food that I’ve had in Toronto. Their mock duck (big pic, above) – tastes nothing [..]

This is a convenient place if you are in the Cambie area with decent Thai food. We tried the green papaya salad, beef red curry and the seafood with chili oil and basil served on a sizzling plate (#44). It was tasty but average food. The service was reasonably fast. The decor is nothing special [..]

This Korean restaurant on Robson Street located above the main street level would be easy to pass by. However, people in the know, think this is a pretty good Korean place. When you walk into the restaurant, despite the fan hoods above the tables, there is still a bit of smoky bbq hanging in the [..]

Who knew that New Westminster would have an authentic thai place with a thai owner/chef in the middle of all the mediocre food?

This is one of the best places I have eaten Thai food in Vancouver. The food is more authentic than most of the ubiquitous and relatively forgettable thai restaurants around town. Not only does that mean that the food is tastier, but if you ask for medium hot – it really is medium hot and [..]

We decided to use one of those entertainment book coupons for a free entree at the Tropika in Aberdeen Mall for lunch. The place is relatively nice and modern inside and the service is fast – since there were few tables occupied during this weekday lunchtime. Overall, the food was below average except for the [..]

Argentina

After our experience at Cabana las Lilas, we wanted to figure out this whole Argentinian beef thing and knew that we had to visit a parrilla again to compare/contrast and see if we could find the ‘best steak of your life’ as some of the travel guides seemed to promise.

Bistro

A local french bistro just off the main pedestrian walkway near the centre of Reims, this bistro with a red awning was recommended by the sommelier at Veuve Clicquot – in fact, he said that the fries were the main attraction. I swear that the staff (ba-da-boom, ba-da-bing!) from East Side Mario’s was holding the WPE staff hostage in the back of the kitchen and decided to take over food preparation for the day.

Brunch

Bakeries occupy this special place in my heart – the good ones are run by people who love food, who put that love into what they do, and produce an exceptional product that just makes you happy. I’ve said before that I think “lets just go here” is a recipe for disaster when walking around town in terms of food, but once in a while, it just works out – as it did at the Continental.

Bib Gourmand

So La Rotonde is one of the Parisian institutions of Montparnasse – its list of famous figures of the 20th century that have drunk, eaten, and discussed the meaning of life behind its doors would make up most of the early 20th century Who’s Who of the literary and art. Everything a ‘Bib Gourmand’ should be – would definitely go again.

Beer

I had read about this place in the Wallpaper Guide for Copenhagen, and as I knew we were going to try Mikkeller Bar, I figured we should make sure that we also check out the competition at Nørrebro Bryghus. While the Danes aren’t as famous for their beers as the Belgians, Dutch, or Germans, they are off to a good start with Mikkel Borg Bjergsø’s ‘Mikkeller’ Brewery.

Budapest

So for future reference, here is some information I gleaned on the net about different places to eat in Budapest.

Baked Goods

Always searching out delicious baked goods, we read about Emmerys somewhere or other and as it was literally around the corner from our apartment in Copenhagen, we decided to give it a try – and yes, it totally worked out. Don’t expect a chic restaurant – this is more of a cafeteria-style affair with a dessert/bakery display case out front and a hot table with a lot of dishes that have an indian or asian bent to them with many lentil.
