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…

Whytecliff Park Trail – West Van

Time: The lookout was 1 minute away from the parking lot. The small trail that had no loop around so you have to back track or walk through the residential areas/roads but you get to pass by the nice scenery/semi private beach.. Difficulty: Not difficult at all. There’s not really a proper trail here. From…

Don Chepe’s – Surrey

It looks really ghetto, but it is actually a really good Mexican/Latin family owned restaurant. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 9/10 – lots to choose from!! rice dishes, tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and many more… Service – 9/10 – staff is nice and quick.. Taste – 9/10 – everything was really good!! flavorful and the ceviche was different but still…

La Pentola – Yaletown

Went here for a friend’s birthday. Saw someone else go here for an occasion and saw that they have this cute painted wall outside the restaurant… You know what they say .. do it for the ‘gram. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 8/10 – Pasta, Risotto, Salads, Appetizers, Duck, Seafood, Steak; I guess that is a good…

Crystal Falls – Coquitlam

NOTE NUMBER ONE: do not search up crystal falls on your Google Maps. It will take you along side on the road .. literally .. but you won’t be able to see it because of all the trees etc. You have to search “Karley Crescent” and park at the residential area.. The end of the…

Olive & Anchor – West Vancouver

Mmmmhm!~ We needed to have lunch after our “hike” so I googled “top restaurants near Whytecliff” and this “Olive & Anchor” place came up. No regrets coming here.   “V-STAR” Rating: Variety – 7/10: Since it’s a PUB, you’ll have you typical PUB choices: burgers, fish & chips, soups & salads, sandwiches, few pasta options…

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 –…
