It's fun to crawl through the glitz and glam of downtown hubs in the restaurant world, but if you look deep enough, the same kind of prestige can be had in the suburbs often for a better value price. I believe Stem Japanese Eatery is one of those venues and
After a one-year hiatus from the world, the Vancouver Christmas Market is back at Jack Poole Plaza and I couldn't be more overjoyed. While I am an avid visitor and visit every year, I am also hyper-aware of the prices of food at the market and may have splurged on
It's kind of crazy to say this but what is going on with the operation of New Fishport that they can allow smoking to happen on-premises? It's sad that this overshadowed my food experience but when 20% of my primary senses are clouded, it's harder to enjoy food. We'll talk
It wasn't going to be long before a new restaurant sprouted up in the ashes of Biercraft. Community Taps and Pizza is a new celebration of bringing people together over good food, local vendors, and a modern interior. Keeping in theme with Commercial Drive, which has a big Italian influence,

There's been a ton of hype for The Frying Pan ever since their food truck started rolling around Vancouver. Now a brick-and-mortar location has sprung up and while I'm in tears saying goodbye to Tuc Craft Kitchen, my heart has been healed by the Korean-Nashville style of fried chicken that's
Its entrance is literally in the alleyway behind the parent business! I don't know why it took so long for this business to spring up in La Taqueria's backyard but Chupito takes the "back door" experience of Tacofino to a new level in branding. I came in with expectations of
Smash patties are all the rage on this side of the 2020s. Despite having origins in 2007 in Denver, Colorado, the smash burger is a rising story that burger places are starting to add to their menus. Pourhouse in Vancouver, for example, has a smash burger on their happy hour
