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…

Kamei Baru – Downtown Vancouver

Second time here but I don’t think I made a blog post about this the first time … Since it’s a downtown venue, you can expect it to be a little pricey <($$_$$)> “V-STAR” RATING: Variety – 8/10 – There’s a lot of things you can have. Deep fried. Steamed. Raw. Stir Fry. Salads. Rice….

South St. Burger – Tsawwassen Mills

I’ve been to Tsawwassen Mills twice and each time that I’ve walked by South St. Burger, it’s always so busy!! So, we gave it a try walking through the whole mall. V-STAR Rating: Variety – 7.5/10 – burgers or hot dogs – create your own or choose from the 3 popular options – lots of ingredients…

Earls – Surrey

Came here for a late night birthday party. We didn’t order until almost 9 and did not get our food until 9:30-9:40. V-STAR Rating:  Variety – 7/10 – nothing special; nothing caught my eye Service – 7/10 – everything took long; maybe because we were a big group, but there wasn’t that many people in…

Edith & Arthur – Surrey

Breakfast that goes on until 3 PM and it only costs $4-$7!! “V-STAR” Rating: Variety: 7/10 – Good enough for breakfast. There’s benedict, omlettes, your basic: ham, toast, eggs combo Service: 7/10 – one girl served 1/3 of the pub. There were probably 3 servers working and the place was completely packed. So getting menu’s,…

Big Chicken Town – Surrey

Yummy yummy in my tummy!! Chicken and Beers! One of the popular joints in Surrey. I usually go to boom beer but decided to try big chicken town again. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety: 7/10 – overall, they don’t have much selection; however, for a chicken place, they have a lot of different flavours for the chicken dishes….

Dine Out: Top of Vancouver Revolving Restaurant

Yes. It is as “meh” like everyone says. But let’s be real. We all go here regardless of what anyone says for the view; for the likes. “Do it for the ‘gram’.” V-STAR Rating: Variety: N/A – Dine out menu so limited selection. I was struggling between the Steak or the rack of BBQ Ribs….

Dine Out: Moxies – Surrey

First dine-out of the year! We were lazy, tired, and didn’t want to travel far for this dine-out. We chose Moxies because of their Poke Jar. Everything else on the menu was meh. “V-STAR” Rating: Variety: 7/10 – A dine-out menu is already limited because the restaurant has to make some sort of revenue from…
