Suika – Vancouver

Went to this place for a friend’s birthday. All I knew about this restaurant was that it was a Japanese Restaurant with a lot of tapas – which reminds me of quite a few other restaurants like this. V-STAR Rating: Variety – 7/10 – The selection was alright. To me, the cooked vs raw selection…

Asteras – Nanaimo, BC

Again, we just googled what restaurants were on the way to the ferry from Parksville and this was one of the best options that we all agreed on… V-STAR RATING:  Variety – 9/10 – There were a lot of different choices to choose from. Your typical Greek options plus pasta (which is usually not on…

West Village Cafe – Surrey

Saw this cute little cafe on one of those articles (buzzfeed? dailyhive? etc.). V-STAR Rating: Variety – 7/10 – there was not much to choose from as we had missed breakfast by 10 minutes OR we were actually there in time but by the time we ordered, it was over…… Couple things I wanted on…

Empire Seafood Restaurant – Richmond

Since we were hanging out in Richmond for the early afternoon, DIM SUM was the appropriate lunch cuisine! I’ve never been here, but I think it is one of my favourite places now….   V-STAR Rating: Variety – 9/10 – It’s DIM SUM. There’s always a variety of food choices and lunch menu items Service…

Pizzeria Lucida – Vancouver

Food? Pizza? Boardgames?!?! All in one place?!?!?! YESSSSSSSSS! V-STAR Rating: Variety – n/a – well it’s a pizza place so their specialty is stone-oven baked pizza and some pasta. That’s all you can get I think and some Italian appetizers… (that are overpriced) Service – 8/10 – they were quick to seat us (there was only…

CoCo Fresh Tea & Juice – Downtown Vancouver

My first time trying CoCo bubble tea. I didn’t know what to get and I was pretty lazy at looking at the menu so I made my sisters choose for me. They got the original with the pearls. Overall, it was NOT the most amazing bubble tea I’ve ever had. People hype this place way…

Colossus Greek Taverna – Toronto

Some pretty good Greek food in Oakville. If you live in the lower mainland of BC, this area would remind you of White Rock. V-STAR Rating: Variety – 8/10 – strictly greek options: the typical chicken, beef, lamb, etc. Service – 8/10 – The staff was nice and they were really busy so it was…

La Forêt – Burnaby

Saw this place on one of the buzzfood or narcity or vancitybuzz articles. Then it started showing up on my instagram and it seemed like a place I just had to check out – do it for the gram you know? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ V-STAR Rating: Variety – 8/10 – For a cafe, I would say you get a…

Little Mountain Cafe – Parksville

We literally googled places to eat nearby and this was one of the choices that came up. It looked pretty sketchy, but we still went in anyways. It seemed like a family-owned restaurant and it was very small. V-STAR Rating: Variety – 7/10 – There’s your typical breakfast options, some burgers, sandwiches, quesadillas, a couple…

Trattoria – Burnaby

J.Cole was canceled so we decided to still go out somewhere to eat. Ended up here and we didn’t even know about PASTA TUESDAY! WIN WIN!!~ #V-STAR RATING: Variety – 9/10 – Well because it was Pasta Tuesday, we didn’t really look at the other options because the deal was just too amazing. We did…

Ancora – Downtown Vancouver

I literally googled “top restaurants for birthdays” and this was one of it AFTER I modified the query to have “Vancouver” in it. Originally, the top choice was McDonald’s. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #V-STAR Rating Variety: 8.5/10 – There’s a lot of variety for seafood stuff. I believe there were one or two meat dishes that you can get….

Anh + Chi – Vancouver

I’ve always wanted to try this place because of all the posts I’ve seen on Instagram. V-STAR Rating: Variety – 9/10 – This is not your typical Pho Restaurant. There’s more than just pho/rice dishes/noodle dishes. They have the Vietnamese Crepe dish, sandwiches, and much more. They even serve liquor here / bar style. Service –…

Lee Gar Nei – Surrey

We only went here because Big Chicken Town had a 15+ minute wait. So glad we went here though. I finally found a place that had soft tofu soup that wasn’t super spicy for me! V-STAR Rating: Variety: 8.5/10 – I would say there are a lot of different things you can get from here….

Sekai Udon Bar

This udon bar is located right inside Metrotown (across from ICBC). I went here for lunch and they had a really good lunch special. “V-STAR” Rating:  Variety – 10/10 – There are so many things to choose from. Noodles, Rice, Sushi, Raw Food, Soups, and much more. Service – 7/10 – The service here is a…

Mucho Burrito – Surrey

Wanted to eat something quickly before the movies so we came here right before it was semi-busy. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 7/10 – there’s burritos, quesadillas, tacos, rice bowls (even though i don’t remember seeing it on the menu but it was available). Service – 8/10 –  they were quick/patient when we placed our order. I…
