Vips, Madrid, Spain

After checking out of our hotel, we needed some to kill some time before flying back to Barcelona. We decided to get some breakfast at Vips. A typical Spanish breakfast isn’t very much so we decided to get an American/British style one at Vips.

Baskonia, Barcelona, Spain

After coming back from Madrid, we had to eat one more time. We went to the nearby mall hoping we could buy some meats and cheese to eat, but it was closed by the time we got there. Restaurants were still open. We settled for Baskonia so we could have one last Spanish meal.

Taberna La Taurina, Madrid, Spain

After trying to get an awesome shot of the Madrid sunset, we started to explore more of the lively city. Patios were packed. Live music and parties everywhere. We found many cool places, and had difficulty trying to find somewhere to eat.

Jamie Oliver’s Spinach Filo Pie

Everytime I make one of Jamie Oliver’s 15 minute meals, it always gets me want to make more meals from his cook book. But instead of picking another recipe for the same book again, I flipped through the  30 minute meal book, and decided to make the Spinach filo pie with cucumber salad and tomato salad. This meal […]

Jamie Oliver’s Chorizo & Squid and Couscous Salad

This weekend I wanted to have a light meal because of this heat wave, so I picked the Chorizo & Squid and couscous salad recipe from the 15 minute meals cook book. It’s been a while since I cooked anything from the book, I really forgot how easy these recipes are. There’s not much to do for this recipe. […]

Los Artesanos 1902, Madrid, Spain

Zi Zhu Lin, Barcelona, Spain

You’re probably wondering why we are eating Chinese food in Spain. Well, we missed Chinese/Asian food, it was right below my friends’ Bed & Breakfast, and it was quite late and needed a quick bite before going to the Montjuic Magic Fountains.

Angelina’s, New Westminster

Sunday morning I was craving some pancakes again, but instead of going to ihop, I decided to travel to New Westminster and try out Angelina’s. This breakfast and lunch joint has lots of traditional breakfasts as well as pannekoeks. I can get traditional breakfasts anywhere, but not pannekoeks besides DeDutch, or Dutch Wooden Shoe Cafe […]

Hostaria De’ Pastini Pizzeria, Rome, Italy

While walking towards Trevi Fountain from the Pantheon, we walked through a street with a bunch of restaurants. It was dinner time, and the street was packed with diners. The host of Hostaria De’ Pastini Pizzeria actually stopped us in our tracks to show us the menu. A bit rude, but it worked and we […]

Aomori Sushi, Surrey

I wanted to try a new sushi place in Surrey for lunch. Aomori is a small restaurant with table and private booth seatings. I picked the booth seating because it seemed neat. We ordered several items. I did not get a chance to try their actual lunch special. Salmon sashimi plate was pretty good. They […]

La Pancia Felice, Rome, Italy

After touring around the Vatican on our first day in Rome, we got really hungry. From researching, I heard Carbonara was one of the main things to try while in Rome. So about 5 minutes away from the Vatican we chose to eat at La Pancia Felice.
