I'm not one to frequent a lot of Chinese restaurants but I savour every chance I get. I had the chance to dine at Chef's Choice on a fellow food blogger's recommendation and this experience was very tasty, priced well, and situated in a restaurant with great décor and service.
It's not a dive bar in the sense of being a grimy drinking hole, but Pizza Coming Soon keeps a lot of the old bones of New Mitzie's Restaurant and re-colours it in a eclectic palette in both vibe and menu as a Japanese snack bar. Dim lighting, non-binary washrooms,
Saveur's been on the lists of many to go to in Victoria and for good reason. They're cited in local media such as YAM Magazine and Eat Magazine, even making it as YAM's 2019 restaurant of the year. Suffice to say, I think these opinions might be mainly based on
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

It's been a long 18 months of pandemic, and at least in the double-vaxxed world, things are looking up as far as preventing death and serious illness. With all this being cooped up, it's my belief that immersive experiences like The Wizard's Den will be popular for young professionals who
Enter Sushi Tree, which opened last month within Henderson Mall in Coquitlam. This takeout-only counter serves sushi as I've never experienced before – it's maki wrapped with inari (tofu) instead of seaweed!
