Ddungcaron (Fat Macaron), only at Take Urban

Take Urban is a new hidden gem near Stadium Chinatown, and it was originally a petite Korean cafe that sells bibimbap and rice burgers. It recently reopened and transformed to a cute dessert cafe. Except the classic Korean dishes, they also sell big macarons that caught my attention. You might miss this shop, but it is totally worth your time to pay a visit here.

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.

West End is filled with Korean restaurants, and we, the Yelp Squad, decided to go to this Korean fusion restaurant, hoping to seek for unique and delicious dishes. Kosoo Restaurant specializes in using Korean and Japanese ingredients and adding a twist to authentic dishes with French cooking techniques. One of the signature dishes is the Cheese Chicken Galbi, where you dip the spicy Korean style chicken in stingy and gooey mozzarella cheese. We, a group of six, ordered six appetizers and one main dish. We were all stuffed and had fun. I recommended to come here in a bigger group, so you can enjoy varieties of dishes at once.

Hong Kong is known as a food paradise, yet as a local, I’ve found food in Hong Kong to be pretty mediocre. It can get quite expensive compared to other cities, including Vancouver! So on this trip, I spent more time digging through hidden gems to share with you all.
