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…Continue reading ““Blossom” is where Dim Sum meets Sushi”
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.Continue reading “Sunday Brunch Date at Mak N Ming”
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.Continue reading “The Ultimate Food Guide to 2019 Richmond Night Market, especially if you have limited budget!”
When it comes to ramen, there are many options in Vancouver, and some taste better than the others. For example, you can always see a long line up at Ramen Danbo regardless of time and day. Or some are hidden like this one, Gyo Para Gyoza & Ramen Bar. It is a spacious restaurant that is located in the heart of Kitsilano on the corner of West Broadway and Arbutus Street. Although the ramen bar is on such a busy street, it can be easily missed, but the handmade gyoza and ramen are what Brenda and I are coming for.Continue reading “Gyo Para Gyoza & Ramen Bar”
