For the past 5 weeks, I did not wake up early enough to try Remi Patisserie, a new pop-up at Moving Coffee Roastery every Sunday. Although Remi Patisserie can also be found at Sweet Barrel on weekdays, it seems to be out of the way for me. Yesterday, I finally woke up early enough to visit and buy some treats back home for Ethan.Continue reading “Remi Patisserie Pop Up at Moving Coffee”
Recently, a hidden cafe is newly opened on Fraser Street – Eclettico Art & Coffee. It combines art and coffee together, which brings customers a unique experience as if they are in Italy. When I first entered the cafe, I was attracted by the rustic red wall, with a copper Italian coffee machine at the counter. It has a chic, retro design. The cafe is attached with a small art museum at the back, where drawings, all drawn by the owner, are hung on the wall. It is also where the owner teaches water-coloring classes. In addition to the artistic ambiance, there is a piano at the front for a pianist comes every weekend to perform live music.Continue reading “Eclettico Art & Coffee”

Ramen is the perfect comfort food during rainy day, and I was invited to try the newest creation at Marutama Gaiden, a spin-off ramen joint of Marutama Ramen located on Main Street. In here, you can experience some unique menu items that are not served in other locations. You also have the opportunity to try the thick noodles and various soup base, instead of the chicken creamy broth solely. The feature item on the menu is a spicy ramen with a twist using Sichuan hot chili peppers.Continue reading “Marutama Gaiden”
Do you remember when was your last time eating at Hon’s Wonton House? My last dining experience with them was when I first came to Vancouver 10 years ago. I still remembered they used to have a huge menu, with almost everything you can possibly name. Recently, I had a chance to revisit Hon’s Wonton House after 10 years, but everything has now changed. The new restaurant, located in Olympic Village, became more modern, with a simpler menu. But one thing remains – handmade wontons.
I believe this is my first time to revisit my blog post and change my comments on the food quality and restaurant. I revisited the restaurant last night, and I ordered Popstickers and Beef Brisket & Wonton Noodle Soup. Unfortunately, I was disappointed on the food quality this time!
