An Authentic Bowl of Taiwanese Beef Noodles at Torafuku

Though Vancouver has many Taiwanese restaurants, I haven’t found a place with a good bowl of Taiwanese beef noodles.

Bringing you to JiangHu for Authentic Taiwanese Dishes

Right Next to Hotpot Palace, there is another hidden gem that serves authentic Taiwanese pot and stir-fry dishes – JiangHu. It uses local ingredients to create some unique dishes that you rarely see in Vancouver. Recently, they launched a happy hour for late-night supper, which is best for any late night cravings out there, especially when everything closes early in Vancouver. This event is organized by Issabelle, the Community Manager of Yelp Vancouver, and I was so excited to be part of it. In addition, Feast: Asian Dining Festival also joined us for the night.

Milksha (迷客夏), a popular Taiwanese bubble tea chain recently opened its door on Robson Street, next to Ole Chicken & Tapas. This is the first location in North America, which I am excited to be one of the first customers to try them!

BlackBall Canada – the Best Taiwanese Dessert in Vancouver

BlackBall Canada is about to open their BC’s first location in Richmond, and I was lucky enough to have a sneak peak of their menu and some of the signature dessert items. It is a bright and spacious corner store, located at the Union Square. Unlike majority of the dessert places in Vancouver, it has two floors. Although the second floor is still under construction, I am excited to be up there once they opened to the public. Now let’s get into the real talk!
