Milestones Guildford Town Centre, Surrey

Last week we were invited to the pre-opening event of the brand new Milestones at Guildford Town Centre in Surrey. This turned out to be a really fun event with good food. I had a good time chatting with other food bloggers and Milestones’ staff. Upon arrival we were presented with 3 different types of cocktails. […]

The Wooden Spoon Brunch & Bistro Co, White Rock

A friend was telling me about The Wooden Spoon Brunch & Bistro Co in White Rock, and how it’s a good spot for brunch. I did a bit of research on the restaurant, and found out that they have dinner too. Ideally, I wanted to come try the brunch menu, but my friend is here for […]

Mango Yummy, Richmond

Lately I keeps seeing these delicious looking mango drinks from other food bloggers on my Instagram feed, and it just made me really want one! Mango Yummy is located on Number 3 road near Richmond centre, and it’s where these mango drink photos came from. There are so many kinds of Cantonese style drinks and […]

Jamie Oliver’s Amazing Apple Pie

I’ve had Jamie Oliver’s Comfort Food book for a couple of weeks now, and the first recipe I decided to try was the Amazing Apple Pie. There are quite a bit of dessert recipes in this book, and this one seems the easiest with the least ingredients. I also have cases of Okanagan Ambrosia apples […]

Carette, Paris

Carette is a patisserie just steps away from Trocadéro station. Originally I wanted to come here for the macaroons, but ended up getting a savoury lunch here instead. To my surprise, the waiters here were very friendly, and fluent in English. I guess it’s because it was located in a very touristy area. I started our […]

Café de Flore, Paris

Café de Flore was the one cafe that my friend wanted to visit in Paris. We came here really early for breakfast, just when it opened in fact, and got a table at the sidewalk patio. We got some coffee, and the waiter brought us a tray of croissants, a tray of pastries, and 4 types of […]

Bouillon Chartier, Paris

My first night in Paris, I went to Bouillon Chartier, a 100+ year old cafe recommended by a local friend. The restaurant was really big, and all the tables were packed with waiters speed walking everywhere. I was surprised we were able to get seated right away. The 3 of us were seated at a […]

Won Jo Korean Noodle House, Coquitlam

I’m not sure how I ended up in Coquitlam, but it was lunch time and I was at Won Jo Korean Noodle House, a small Korean restaurant my friends recommended. There are a lot of different types of Korean food here, from noodles, to Korean BBQ. The menu does take quite a bit of time to […]

Confeitaria Nacional, Lisbon

Confeitaria Nacional is a 100+ years old bakery in the centre of downtown Lisbon. It was our go to bakery from breakfast, to mid day snack, and night time dessert. I’d say are more than 50 pastries and cakes to choose from here. I would need a full week here to try them all. In the […]

Bonjardim, Lisbon

By the last day in Lisbon, we have had most of the Portuguese specialties, egg tarts, prego, bifana, and seafood. There was just one thing left that my friend really wanted to try, and that was piri piri chicken. So we found Bonjardim, a restaurant specializes in roasted chicken. Roasted chicken here was delicious, by itself, it […]

Moma, Lisbon

Sometimes on vancation, you just have to randomly walk into a restaurant without doing any research. Moma was the one restaurant we walked into because we just wanted to eat somewhere. It was a really clean, and simply decorated restaurant. Even though there was patio seating, we decided to sit inside because we walked all […]

Gelataria Amorino, Lisbon

On our last day in Lisbon, on our way to the walking tour, we randomly walked into Gelataria Amorino because some gelato just seemed like a good idea in the 35 degree weather. What so special about this gelato shop is that they make flower gelatos. First you pick the size you want, and let the […]
