“Blossom” is where Dim Sum meets Sushi

It was the grand opening for Blossom Dim Sum & Grill yesterday. And until now, I am still surprised by the concept of having dim sum, sushi, and Western grill all in one restaurant. It makes me wonder “is this restaurant authentic, or is it just hype?”. I tagged along Andrew to answer my question, and the answer is…

Sunday Brunch Date at Mak N Ming

I was researching on brunch spots in Vancouver, and I found that Mak N Ming is relaunching their annual Summer Sunday Brunch, starting May 19. This is the 3rd season, and I missed the last two. Mak N Ming is located in Kitsilano, just blocks away from the Kitsilano Beach. They highlight Japanese-meets-French cuisine. With limited seatings, I highly recommend to reserve through OpenTable ahead of time.

I actually came here since they first opened, and I really enjoyed the simple and delicate fusion cuisine. Then, my second visit for the “Kick the Blues” menu was a delightful experience. Last week, I visited the restaurant again. I was invited to a Yelp Elite event, and I got to try more of the signature dishes from the menu!

BETA 5 x Constellation Inspiration: Cream Puff Collaboration

It was hectic last week because BETA 5 collaborated with Amy from Constellation Inspiration and launched three feature cream puffs. These three new flavors made most Vancouverites go crazy on pre-orders and lineups, just to get their hands on them. But one question always pops up – are they worth the hype? To answer this question, I gave myself an excuse to preorder all three flavors and tried them out.
