Ginger & Garlic
Ever since I visited Golden Oscar Cafe I begged my friends to take me to a better Hong Kong style cafe. This time, he brought me to Ginger & Garlic in Richmond. This marks my 3rd time at a Hong Kong style cafe.
Once in a while this question always comes up at midnight: where can we get food?
Tea Work is a spot I discover recently that conveniently opens til 2am daily. I was there for a very late dinner, and the fact that this was a Taiwanese restaurant, I was more interested in getting little dishes than an actual entrée.
Last week I went to Sha Lin Noodle House for lunch. I wanted to go there because I wanted to get those pan fried dumplings my friends have been talking about. Actually, I’ve had them once, years ago, but I don’t remember how they tasted like. And when I got there for lunch, I looked at the menu, and it said ‘Pan fried dumplings only avaliable for dinner’. What a burn.
So my friends have been talking about breakfast at Yummy Sushi for the past couple years, and they’re always shocked that I haven’t been there yet. Well guys, why don’t you ever take me there?
I was looking for a quick lunch in Vancouver, and my friend suggested that we’d go to Best Burrito, a place he discovered recently. The menu was really simple, I ordered a Chicken Burrito ($8) and watch the owner made it in front of me.
A few weeks ago we went skydiving in Abbotsford. It was crazy fun, but it ended a lot earlier than we expected, and we decided to stay in Abbotsford for lunch. What’s there to eat in Abbotsford besides Ah-Beetz Pizza? A quick search on the iPhone lead us to Hi Lunch Box Japanese. Japanese food in Abbotsford? I know, we were a pretty skeptical at first, until we had their sushi.
Nice Cafe is a little breakfast joint in Mount Pleasant, Vancouver. This place had an atmosphere of a diner. We were seated right away, but were were seated at a row of tables for 2 that were placed so close together, it could almost be a long table. I could literally reach over to the next table to grab the ketchup without extending my arm fully. It gets cozy if you’re not sitting at a booth.
If you’re looking for a place for a quick drink and a quick bite, Goldies Rustic Pizza is one of those places for you. Goldies Rustic Pizza is a bar type pizza joint with a take out window on Pender street.
We visited Pink’s Hot dogs after a long date night with alcohol in Las Vegas. Pink’s is located at Planet Hollywood on the strip, it was just a short walk from our hotel.
Do you love eating meat? If you answered yes, and if you’re around Kirkland, WA, you should definitely visit Secret Garden Restaurant. Secret Garden Restaurant is an all you can eat Korean BBQ house. It is located in a semi-remote place, and it looks like a Mexican restaurant on the outside.
A few days ago I went to get some lunch at Hawker’s Delight on Main street. With a huge sign on the outside of the restaurant, I was quite surprised by how small the restaurant was.
When it comes craving for Greek food, I always prepare myself to stuff my face with tons of rice, skewered meat, and tzatziki sauce. One of the first places I’d think of to do that to myself is Stepho’s Souvlaki on Davie street.
