Milksha (迷客夏): a New Taiwanese Bubble Tea Chain on Robson Street

I have been going to a lot of bubble tea shops lately. At one point, I was visiting five different shops in one week, which was probably a crazy move. Anyway, Robson Street is slowly turning into a street of bubble tea. I’ve counted, including the ones that are opening soon, there are at least seven different shops, opening side by side. 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!

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.

It also launches a new food menu to pair with the beer.

Liuyishou Hot Pot on Robson

Regardless of the season, I always crave for hot pot. It is the best way to bond with friends and family, while sharing all the food in the pot. Last week, I revisited Liuyishou Hot Pot with other foodies, and we had so much fun together. Compared to the Dolar Shop (check out my review here!), Liuyishou Hot Pot is more reasonably priced and with a casual ambiance. You can find some unique appetizers here, so you can nibble on them while waiting for the soup to boil. I also got few tips for any newbies to hot pot.

The GPO Kitchen + Bar x Silver Chef

Did you ever have trouble looking for a place for happy hour after work? A place with an extensive selection of beer and cocktail, as well as delicious food? I recently went to a newly opened retro-themed bar on Davie Street, The GPO Bar + Kitchen. It was opened about 2 weeks ago, and it is bright and has an open environment, encouraging interactions among all people visiting the bar. Visiting on a Thursday evening, it is pretty packed, and the place is filled with laughters and chatters. If I was not been told, I would think that this bar has been opened for awhile already. And behind such successful launch, it is supported by Silver Chef, who provides funding and equipment aid to the bar.
