Nook Kitsilano

Posted on August 13th, 2013

As we’ve been enjoying exceptionally beautiful weather this summer in Vancouver, we’ve found ourselves heading to the beach in the evenings to relish the stunning vistas. Yet after a stroll on the seawall, we’ve often lamented the scarcity of enticing options for dinner. Of course there’s no shortage of places serving up beer, burgers and … (More →)

Graze

Posted on August 6th, 2013

While vegetarian cuisine has become decidedly mainstream—a host of innovative restaurants have opened in Vancouver over the past few years that make even the staunchest carnivore forget that they’re not eating meat—vegan food remains a much harder sell. Without the aid of dairy products like cheese and eggs that can transform vegetables into rich, delectable … (More →)

Marutama Ramen

Posted on July 30th, 2013

As I’ve mentioned many times before, Vancouver’s West End is home to many small Asian restaurants of all kinds and my latest discovery is Marutama Ramen on Bidwell street, just north of Robson. I was under the impression that most ramen broths derived their rich, creamy broth from simmering pork for extended periods, but Marutama … (More →)

Homer Street Café and Bar

Posted on July 30th, 2013

We have been feeling a bit uninspired by the dining choices in the downtown core as of late, which is why Homer Street Café and Bar is such a welcome newcomer to the area. We visited this recent addition to Yaletown and were very pleasantly surprised by their refined home-style menu which focuses on preparing … (More →)

La Casita, Vancouver

Posted on July 8th, 2013

I’ve was disappointed on my last venture to La Taqueria … (More →)

Chicha Restaurant

Posted on June 18th, 2013

Lolita’s on Davie has long been one of our favourite spots in Vancouver for a laidback meal; with a distinctive atmosphere and a menu comprised of contemporary renditions of classic Mexican dishes, the restaurant serves up tasty food and delectable cocktails that never disappoint. We were thrilled to learn that Lolita’s head chef, Shalome Bouvette, … (More →)

Longtail Kitchen

Posted on June 4th, 2013

We don’t often venture all the way to New Westminster for a bite to eat, but we’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about River Market at Westminster Quay which is becoming something of a food fan destination with Wild Rice, Re-UP BBQ and Wally’s Burgers nestled into the waterfront property. When we heard Chef … (More →)

Dunlevy Snack Bar

Posted on May 23rd, 2013

I have often bemoaned the lack of good bars in Vancouver – the kind of place where you can just sit back anonymously with a drink and food is a secondary thought. I tend to go either high or low – so typically I’m at the Georgia Hotel (at their Lobby Lounge) or the Caffè … (More →)
