10th Anniversary & “Gather” Cookbook Launch at the Dirty Apron

It is tough for a restaurant to open for 10 years in such a competitive industry, especially in Vancouver. And I am glad to witness one of them to celebrate its 10th year anniversary a few days ago. The Dirty Apron Cooking School, Delicatessen & Catering locates just right next to Jam Cafe on Beatty Street, and though I always past by, this is my first time entering the beautiful, spacious store. Along with the 10th year anniversary celebration, it is also the launch night of Gather, the new cookbook.

Scratch Kitchen: a Hidden Gem at Deep Cove

Just before the summer ends, we did a mini-adventure to Deep Cove. Mr. wanted to do a hike at Quarry Rock, but prior to that, we visited a brunch place nearby. It is an 8-minute drive away from Deep Cove, and it is called Scratch Kitchen. They make everything from scratch daily, and there is a 4.8 rating on Google, which makes me even more curious about what they serve.

HOLY Smokes, Smokes & Bones BBQ!

The Ultimate Food Guide to 2019 Richmond Night Market, especially if you have limited budget!

Recently, I did a series of Instagram stories on spending just $30 (excluding the admission) in this year’s Richmond Night Market, and many love it! Therefore, I decide to come up with an ultimate food guide for you, especially if you have limited budget. This year’s admission is $4.95 per person, with an option to purchase the Express Pass for $28 (include 6 visits). If you are planning to go only once, I prefer just getting the one-time pass. The line up doesn’t seem to have much difference, to be honest.

I was lucky to be invited to a media event, hosted by ChineseBites and Tourism Richmond. I tried 25 stalls in the Richmond Night Market, and I was surprised by this year’s creativity and overall quality of the food. Concluding my two visits to Richmond Night Market, here are the top 10 food items that you should try on your next visit.
