Little Billys Steak House

Little Billys Steak House is a gem that is hidden in North Burnaby near SFU. They specialize in steaks, seafood and traditional greek dishes. One thing I really don’t like about this place is the very very cramped entrance to [...]

Rodney’s Oyster House

MedicalGiraffe and I went here because we both love oysters. Rodney’s Oyster House is really popular and has a great “low tide” option between 3pm to 6pm! $1.50 per oyster…who wouldn’t want that? (I guess if you don’t like oysters…then [...]

Cumpari’s Gelato & Caffe
