Kebin was back in town for a few precious weeks, so we had to stuff in a few foodie dates. Kebin is also a big meat-eater, so we had to be a bit… sneaky about taking him here. To Virtuous Pie. A vegan pizza place. Heh… heh… heh…
After dinner, there’s nothing that Mell likes better than to finish with dessert. And there’s no better dessert on a warm Vancouver evening than ICE CREAM. So, we decided to hit up Tangram Creamery, a new joint that our friends had been raving about (and whose creations we’d been seeing all over our Instagram feeds).
Mell and Grace visit Ora Sushi, the newest incarnation of Mega Sushi, in Steveston.
Mell and Grace try Heirloom’s vegetarian menu and fall in love with the tacos. It’s always the damn tacos.
It’s stop #2 on the Muy Tight Ramen Tour: Ramen Gojiro in downtown Vancouver. Did it beat the high bar that Taishoken set? Find out…
Mell and Grace hit up Vancouver’s best ramen joints with their crew. First stop: Taishoken.
We’d both been to Calabash before and loved their vibe, especially their live music sessions happening on the lower level. But we’ve never had their brunch. And Mell’s never tried the famous Dark ‘n’ Stormy that Grace never shuts up about. It’s time to get what we came for. Even though it’s only 10:30am.
When Hans and Irene dropped in (from Oslo and Toronto) for the holidays, we knew we needed to give them some good Vancouver brunch lovin. Since we’d all never been to Yolk’s (yeah yeah, fail, we know), we were like OH WHY NOT. Besides, the constant lineups every weekend had us pretty intrigued.
Mell and Grace meet Jamjar’s chef and enjoy some of the best Lebanese food in Vancouver.
Mell and Grace visit Belgard Kitchen for an after-work bevy, some squid ink, and steak, because MEAT.
