Why One’s or Two’s??

Now you’re all wondering why this blog is called One’s or Two’s. I have long been cooking for myself or just for Jenny and I. Every time I go shopping, I am forced to buy enough ingredients to make my dishes. But the problem is, for people like me, how do we cook delicious and healthy home cooked meals, when we end up having to throw out half of the stuff we buy. This blog will not only be a log of my journeys tasting amazing food around the world, but also I will try to find the most efficient ways to cook for less money, with less waste! I will also be following in the near future with cooking videos showing the basic culinary skills you will need to be confident cooking incredible food in your own home!

Mix by Ric’s – Whistler

Sorry for the late updates guys. It’s been a crazy week and I am way behind on the blog. I’m going to try to get everything back up to date by tomorrow the latest. Lots of new reviews and great recipes to share! This is one of the last places we went to on my weekend in Whistler.

Mix by Ric’s is the lounge room that’s located upstairs to Ric’s Grill, one of the more well known fine dining spots in Whistler. This place actually opens all day, every day of the week, from 8am to 1am. They serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. I have only been to Ric’s Grill once for dinner, which was a very good experience. This was my second time to this establishment and this time we went to the Mix. Continue reading

Sushi Mori Coquitlam

Today I went for lunch at Sushi Mori in Coquitlam on Barnett Hwy. It was my fourth time here at this location. I know that in the past year from my experience at the other location that this company has undergone some management changes. The first couple times I went last year, the food was always amazing. The restaurant itself is beautiful when you walk in because it is decorated in a very unique way which you will not see anywhere else in another sushi restaurant in Vancouver. Continue reading

Lunch at Meat & Bread

Today I took Jenny to Meat & Bread for our third time. This specialty restaurant is only open during lunch hours, but is always packed! The first two times we came here we had excellent experiences, and this time was no different. Their sandwiches are just consistently good everyday of the week. They keep the menu simple, but they are amazing at what they do make, which keeps people coming back for more. There’s just something about their concept that is so unique as well. I know of no other places like this where you can go for lunch and have a gourmet sandwich, served so simply, and taste this delicious. On their menu each day, there is only 3 or 4 sandwiches to choose from, 1 soup and 1 salad. Each time I have visited, I have been able to try something new as they switch up the specials daily.

Lunch at YEW in the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver

Arctic Char

This will be my first restaurant review on here. I will do my best to paint an accurate picture of what each place we visit is like. And also rate them on their food quality, ingenuity, ambiance, service and value.

Jenny surprised me today for my birthday by taking me to YEW @ the Four Seasons Hotel in Vancouver for lunch. This was my first time visiting this upscale dining room. I have to say, I was very surprised at my first glance into this West Coast restaurant. It is enormous inside, and probably has one of the highest ceilings for a restaurant in all of Vancouver, especially for a place that only offers one floor of dining space. The entire space is beautifully decorated and offers a very contemporary design and feel. I was immediately reminded of Coast on Alberni St, which has a similar design, being a very open concept kitchen and bar area. But YEW is very well lit in the day with lots of natural light pouring in. During lunch, it gets very busy as most business people in the district come down for a bite. This also adds to the overall “professional” and upscale feeling of the space. Continue reading
