Lindeman Lake – Chilliwack

Time: 40 minutes to go up (to the first lake) Difficulty: Easy to Moderate – some parts were really steep so going up was a tiny bit tricky but going down was probably the most I’ve ever struggled… You really have to use your legs to go down for some parts of the hike Crowded-level:…

Audrey Moment Afternoon Tea – Burnaby

Super cute cafe. Looks so small and lame outside, but when you walk inside, it’s one of the cutest little cafes I’ve ever been to! (well, to be honest, I’ve only been to TWO high tea places including this one).   “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 7/10 – different finger food but it’s a set menu so…

Song Huong – Surrey

A small Vietnamese restaurant that isn’t particularly on a popular strip or plaza. I would consider this the sketchy area of Surrey. However, I would consider it one of the hidden jems in Surrey. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 8/10 – you can eat different appetitzers here that you can’t find elsewhere (in Surrey). There’s your typical…

MYST Asian Fusion – Burnaby

Saw that there was a lot of hype over this place so I decided to check it out. When we got there, it was insanely packed – roughly 12-1PM (prime lunch time – i know). We had to wait about 20-25 minutes to be seated as there were roughly 4 parties in front of us….

S + L Townhall – Langley

Google Map doesn’t tell you that you’re supposed to turn right onto a street in order to access the parking lot. If you follow Google Maps, you will pass the restaurant with no way in and will have to go all the way around (a very long way). “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 9/10 – From…

Blue Bella (Korean Cuisine Bistro) – Vancouver

To be honest, we only decided to go here because SURA KBBQ was way too packed. Don’t get me wrong though – no regrets coming here!! (not to mention a cute kpop idol looking server). “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 9/10 – There are a lot of different Korean dishes that you can order here. Usually,…

Guu Garden – Vancouver

Went here for a buddy’s birthday and was pretty excited. I enjoy these type of restaurants where they welcome you beyond the average. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 8/10 – There’s a lot of different tapas that you can get. fried. seared. raw. cooked. soups. noodles. Majority of the options are more appetizers in my opinion –…

Pho Sunrise – South Surrey

I don’t think there are many Pho/Vietnamese restaurants in this area. I saw a certificate on the wall claiming that they were voted Best Pho Restaurant in the Peace Arch Newspaper  and I’d very much agree. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 9/10 – There are so many choices and not just your typical Pho or Rice Vermicelli…

Joe Fortes – Downtown Vancouver

Never been here for dinner, only for Brunch – twice. Finally got used to the “eggs benedict” so I decided to get it the second time we went here. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety: 8/10 – lots to choose from for brunch. It doesn’t necessarily have to be eggs only. There are other varieties with more filler…

Dinesty – Richmond

I don’t think I ever had pork soup dumplings before… shocker, i know. I was told this place had the best XLB (XIAO LONG BAO – pork soup dumplings in Cantonese(?)). “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 8/10 – There were many pages of food choices – almost too much…. (which makes it hard to choose). But…

Fishman Village – Toronto

It took me almost one two hours to get to this place from Mississauga. I was starving so everything tasted really good to me. Let’s keep that in mind as I rate the categories. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 8/10 – From what I can remember, there was a lot to choose from. The fancy stuff. The…

Nomé Izakaya – Toronto

Bumping place to eat at. Atmosphere is lively. Music is good. Staff is friendly. “V-STAR” – Rating:  Variety – 9/10 – A lot of things to choose from. Tapas. Full Entrees. What’s nice about this place is that you can order a lot of dishes to share so that you are able to try more…

Terroni – Toronto

One of the best Italian restaurants I’ve ever been to. It’s very authentic and the exterior and interior of the restaurant was very nice. It made me excited to be here… “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 9/10 – So many things to choose from in my opinion. A lot of different pastas. Pizzas. Cheese and Meat…

Rolltation – Toronto

This place is similar to the whole poke experience in Downtown Vancouver – just another franchise. V-STAR Rating: Variety:  6.5/10 – you can choose 4 pre-made bowls/rolls or you can create your own and pay extra for the better ingredients. There’s a limit to each category that you can have in your bowl/roll if that…

Banh Mi Très Bon – Richmond

Newly opened cafe in the new plaza built near Garden City / Alderbridge. I would call this place more of a cafe than a restaurant. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety: 6/10 – On their Instagram, they have a lot of things that weren’t on their menu. I guess they were testing it? I’m not sure. What you can…
