On a stormy Vancouver evening, Jenny and I decided to indulge in some of the best seafood this city has to offer. Continue reading
Nero has for a long time now been one of the most talked about waffle joints in downtown Vancouver, and it’s also one of the busiest. Many new waffle restaurants are popping up all over the city, but Nero is still managing to win despite its size disadvantage. It just shows that nothing beats a good quality waffle! Continue reading
To Chris Whittaker, Head Chef at Forage, the idea of forage means, “we no longer seek out excess and indulgence, but instead revisit a time when we respected the land and oceans and took only what we needed to survive. It is about being stewards of our land and true conservationists, as we conduct our business and live our lives. It is about goodness, about taking care of each other, and bringing together our community over good food”. Continue reading
This year I definitely am not getting to as many Dineout restaurants as I would have hoped too, but Edible Canada has been talked about and highly anticipated for their Dineout features, so we decided to give it a try. So what is Edible Canada? It would be easier to list the things it isn’t. They are a company based out of Granville Island that brings together dozens of local farmers, hundreds of artisan food producers, professional chefs and passionate food lovers from all around the world.

Miura Waffle + Milk Bar recently re-opened last month moving from Davie st Downtown to Mount Pleasant on Cambie and Broadway. They are a very unique Japanese waffle bar that has been featured in Food Network’s popular series “You Gotta Eat Here”. Chef and owner Dennis Miura created this menu based on many aspects of his life in Vancouver. Continue reading
Patisserie Lebeau is an authentic Belgium waffle shop and café that sits unassumingly on west 2nd and Burrard, tucked right in between some of Vancouver’s most exotic car dealerships. I in fact learned of this little shop whilst working at Weissach Motors in 2008. I had a short summer job there as a lot boy and we went there many days of the week for their savoury Brussels waffles. Continue reading
Dine Out Vancouver, presented by Tourism Vancouver, is back again for another fantastic year of culinary adventure!

Brunch has become such a competitive aspect of dining out in Vancouver in the last couple of years. There are far too many places trying to open up earlier to bring in that early morning crowd while staying fresh and creative with their menus. It used to be so much easier to choose where to go, simply because the ‘meal’ itself would almost always follow the same basic brunch guidelines. But now there is so much choice and every restaurant in town wants to do something different, while not losing the ‘brunch’ feel. The Oakwood stands out the most amongst all of the restaurants I have had the pleasure to experience in the past year of dining.
Dim Sum at Dai Tung on Kingsway has been a place that I can return to year after year and never be disappointed. Because I don’t live in that area, and there are other places for dim sum closer to me, I rarely have the opportunity nowadays to go for some delicious authentic dim sum. The biggest reason I think that I haven’t been coming to Dai Tung for quite a while is due to the cost. There is one particular dim sum restaurant (that I won’t name in this post) that has particularly good dim sum at an amazing price. Although Dai Tung is not the most expensive dim sums I’ve had, it is still quite pricey for what you get. Continue reading
