Taste of PNE 2014

My first assignment took me to the PNE for a special sampling of some of the traditional and not-so-traditional food options available at this year’s Fair. This was a treat for me because as an annual Fair-goer with cheap Asian parents, my family would opt to get the hand stamp and eat off the fairgrounds […]

Pho 777 Vietnamese Restaurant, White Rock

Last weekend I was in White Rock and had a late lunch at Pho 777 Vietnamese Restaurant. I originally came here for pho, but after looking at the menu, I decided to get the Lemongrass Chicken & Spring rolls meal. The chicken was pretty tasty, but I wished they kept the skin of the chicken. The spring […]

The Fish Shack, Vancouver

Dinesty Dumpling House, Richmond

I have wanted to try this place at the Aberdeen Centre for quite some time now.  The restaurant was very busy and very loud on a friday night.  We were seated fairly quickly.  It reminded me a lot like Ding Tai Fung, especially when I looked at the menu and the open kitchen setup. I […]

Mirch Masala Restaurant, Surrey

Friday night I was too lazy to cook, so I took a couple friends with me to Mirch Masala Restaurant for some Indian food. The decore of the restaurant was nicer than what we expected. There were many items on the menu, and we started with Chilli Paneer. This currey was spicy yet a bit […]

Cantinetta dei Verrazzano, Florence, Italy

Cantinetta dei Verrazzano is a place that I would probably be a regular at if I lived in Florence. It’s on a street with 2 other really awesome places to eat are – Ristorante Paoli and a gelato place called Perche No! – I’d definitely call this food street.

On our day trip to Cinque Terre from Florence with Walkabout Tours, our tour came with lunch at Ristorante Cecio in Corniglia. There were about 80 people on our tour, so we took over the entire restaurant.

Ristorante Paoli, Florence, Italy

After a nice day site seeing the Tuscan Wine Country with CAF Tours, we asked our tour guide where we can get the best Florentine Steak in Florence. Her answer was Ristorante Paoli, and she walked us over to the restaurant in the pouring rain. This was an excellent recommendation, and so were her others.
