HOLY Smokes, Smokes & Bones BBQ!

Recently, I was invited to one of the participated restaurant for the #BBQlicious event hosted by Budweiser. The event celebrates the best slow-cooked BBQ at some of the top restaurants across Canada. I chose to try the BBQ at Smokes & Bones BBQ. It is located in Lower Lonsdale in North Vancouver. It is a 10 minute bus ride from the Lonsdale Quay. Although the restaurant is far away from the city, it has numerous reviews and a 4.4 rating on Google. I was excited to try the ribs in person!

Black Market Supper Club: A night filled with mystery and suprises

Just before the long weekend ended, I went to an exclusive dining experience at Black Market Supper Club located in South Surrey. It is hosted and prepared by a world class chef with no identity being revealed. They wear black masks during the entire time cooking in the kitchen. Location and time stay as a mystery until 72 hours before the dinner. Each dinner is attached to a unique theme, and our night is to honour 25 years Anniversary of the French Laundry.

Weekend Tea: Premium Quality Fruit Tea in South Burnaby

Last week, I brought my friends to try out a newly-opened tea shop in Burnaby, across from OneZo Tapioca. Unlike any bubble tea shops out there, Weekend Tea is known for fruit teas made with real fruits. From sweetness, flavors, to toppings, all drinks are customized to pair well with every element. For example, the Lychee Fruit Tea is paired with aloe vera and lychee bits. Therefore, customers are not given the option to customize sweetness or add toppings to the drinks.

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.
