Toratatsu

Toratstau is slowly becoming my favorite Izakaya restaurant. They are located near Robson and Denman. They have a good variety of choices to choose from. The downside about this place is that it’s quite small, so reservations are a must [...]

No. 1 Beef Noodle House

No. 1 Beef Noodle House is located near Moscrop Secondary School. I really love going to this place with friends for some snacks or late night chit chat/ gossip sessions. Once, we actually spent about 4 hours there just eating [...]

Hapa Izakaya (Kitsilano)

Twisted Fork Bistro

The Twisted Fork Bistro is THE place to go for brunch. It is claimed to be the best brunch place in town. I am always skeptical when people tell me it’s the best. Twisted Fork Bistro opens at 10am, but [...]

Chau Kitchen & Bar

I have always seen Chau Kitchen & Bar while passing by Robson. I thought it was probably an expensive Chinese restaurant from the look of the exterior. In reality, it is an inexpensive Pho place! After hearing an earful from [...]

Gyoza King

It was a super cold Wednesday evening when InsecureGirl and I were SUPER HUNGRY after long classes and meetings at SFU. I told her to decide where we should go. After she did a lot of stalking on Urbanspoon, she [...]

Acme Cafe

Acme Cafe is located on Hastings near SFU Woodwards building. I have to admit, it was kinda sketchy getting to because it was right at the border or the good Hastings and the bad part of Hastings. They serve breakfast, [...]

Bella Gelateria

Bella Gelateria is located under the Fairmont Pan Pacific. I always go to La Casa Gelato to get my fix of gelato, but I find that their quality has gone down. On my search for gelato, why not check out [...]

Meat & Bread

Meat & Bread is a new lunch spot that opened up on Hastings right across the road from Nuba. When I first heard the name, I thought to myself, Meat & Bread…how good can it really be? As they say, [...]

Kimono Koi Crepes is not hard to find at all. It is the bright pink street cart located outside of City Centre Skytrain. They serve up savory and sweet crepes. Here is their menu separated by cold, savory, and sweet. The prices range from [...]

Santouka Ramen

After hearing a lot of buzz about Santouka Ramen on Robson, it was time to see why everyone loves this place. M, InsecureGirl, FragileBoy and I were heading Downtown anyways…so we decided to go here. We were really bummed about [...]

Cafe Kaldi

Cafe Kaldi is located in Coquitlam a few blocks away from Ikea. I am a big fan of privately owned cafes compared to large chains such as Starbucks. They pride themselves for having sandwiches and drinks made out the the [...]

Tim Hortons: Triple Chocolate Grossness

At SFU, when you are in the West Mall Complex, there really isn’t anything to eat except for Tim Hortons. The lines are long, so I always have to keep an eye out when the lines are empty. I got [...]
