After having a most enjoyable meal at Tempranillo, we walked a few blocks over to Chinatown to check out the new dairy-free/vegan and mostly organic gelato joint, Umaluma. The interior is all 60s/70s with dark wood and stucco paneling the walls, recycled glass counter-tops, and pale pastel pink everywhere. We’d heard good things and were … Continue reading Umaluma (Dairy-free) Gelato
Sometimes, we decide to go somewhere only to realize that it’s not open that day. (G: Totally my fault) Today, that happened. So we had to last-minute decide to go elsewhere. Turns out this place was PRETTY KICKASS.
Craving some unpretentious brunch, Grace suggested Bows x Arrows which is nestled in a not-too-familiar neighbourhood on Fraser. We loved walking through the open concept space with its plentiful windows and various plants chillin’ above the long, communal table where people were already seated. The interior was serving us Scandinavian vibes with all the minimalism … Continue reading Bows x Arrows
We’d been craving some ice cream in this heat, and having thoroughly sampled the delights at Earnest and Rain or Shine, we knew that we needed some new ice cream to try. Good thing we found out about Rooster’s.
When Bettyboop invited us to try out some Italian foodz at Pasta Polo, we were like “Hmm”—jk we said yes right away. As if we ever had to think about whether or not to try a restaurant.
Shitty end-of-winter Vancity weather calls for ramen. Dragonhead and Kish were down, so we headed to Yah Yah Ya Ramen in Richmond for our first time there. Kish chose the black tonkotsu ramen. This broth is known for being extra rich and is lighter than the others. It’s still pork bone-based broth, but some places apparently mix … Continue reading Yah Yah Ya Ramen
After our jaunt at Juke, we got into a continued debate about where to get the best fried chicken in Vancouver. And even though this isn’t technically Vancouver (“Greater Vancouver?”), the Aberdeen Centre Food Court apparently has a place called Wu Fung Dessert. Which, according to Dragonhead and Grem, has some of the best chicken … Continue reading Aberdeen Food Court
It’s been almost two years since our Euro trip where we had the most delicious Spanish tapas we’ve ever had, and we’ve had a hankering for them since. Enter Aladdin and Kish, who came along for the ride at La Bodega, a long-standing institution of Spanish food in Vancouver.
Living in Berlin is epic but when it comes to Chinese food, Vancouver still wins. So when Kebin was back, one of his asks was to have some Chinese food. And we’d never say no to Chinese food. Mell had a work party that same day so luckily Kebin picked her up (drunk, of course) from … Continue reading Dinesty Dumpling House
We hadn’t had brunch in a while, and Sunday brunch was calling our names. Well, morning mimosas and caesars, to be specific. And Tuc just happened to have both. How… fortuitous.
