Mother's Day Celebration Lunch from SURA Korean BBQ (Hazelbridge)

Happy Mother's Day to all moms! After more than a month, we went to Richmond today to spend the day with Mama and my siblings. We also watched the Vancouver Whitecaps FC game against Montreal, and we won! Thank God! Anyway, for our lunch celebration, we ordered from SURA Korean BBQ. I loved and enjoyed all the dishes we ordered. Delivery from SURA Korean BBQ Banchan Royal Beef Galbi (Beef Short Ribs) Royal Pork Galbi (Pork Spareribs) Seafood Pancake Japchae (Potato Noodles) Kimchi Fried Rice Which dish will I totally order again ? The galbi. The sauce is delicious! Although, I couldn't justify the price for the serving size. I can't believe that after a year we're still celebrating at home. Hopefully, next year we enjoy mom's favourite dishes in her favourite Korean restaurant. We actually miss grilling Korean BBQ in a Korean restaurant.

Lunch from Triple O's

Happy Friday! Hubby's team is having team lunch today, and their team manager gave them each a $30 DoorDash gift card (Yay!). We decided to order from Triple O's. When I was thinking about what to order, I looked at old blog posts to see what I have already tried. There's just a lot of blog posts, so I made a list to help me decide (refer to the end of the post). Limited Time Pizza Burger Holy smokes! We love ordering limited-time dishes from basically anywhere. Last year, we tried Triple O's Chicken and Waffle. This year, it's time to give their Pizza Burger a shot alongside their limited-time Chocolate Espresso Milkshake. Triple O's Pizza Burger Our NEW Pizza Burger is made with our delicious 100% fresh Canadian Beef, Genoa-style salami, mozzarella sticks, banana peppers, mayonnaise, and a zesty pizza sauce. The Pizza Burger is spicy be

Cinco de Mayo celebration from Salsa and Agave Mexican Grill

It's the fourth year in a row that we enjoyed Mexican food on Cinco de Mayo (May 5). 2018 - We had nachos, quesadilla, burrito, and churros from Sal y Limon 2019 - We had nachos, tacos, and churros from Tacofino Taco Bar in Gastown 2020 - We had nachos, quesadilla, burrito, and churros from Las Margaritas in Kitsilano delivered at our home. This year we ordered the same dishes from Salsa and Agave Mexican grill. The best part of the celebration this year is I paid only with DoorDash credits. Happy Cinco de Mayo! Nachos We ordered large beef nachos. I chose Salsa and Agave because they're part of Daily Hive Dished Vancouver's list of Best Nachos in Vancouver . True enough, the best dish from today is the nachos! The chips arrived still crispy, and the pico de gallo on top is delicious. Large Nachos (with extra beef) Chips, cheddar cheese, beans, jalapeño peppers, pico de gallo, fresh homemade sour cream, topped with feta cheese Chicken Quesadilla It's dry. Extremely dr

Which delivery app to use? DoorDash VS SkipTheDishes VS UberEats REVIEW

The pandemic has affected everyone, but delivery apps are more popular and now ubiquitous. The big question is which one deserves your business among the "big three" available in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I wrote this blog post last 2018 when the delivery apps were just starting out. Let's look at each app and why I prefer one over the other. DoorDash I used to (past tense) love DoorDash . It was the app I use every week at work to order food for the whole team. The "group order" is a big deal for someone like me! Now, I don't use it as often for two reasons: During my peak use of the app, it was reported that they do not give a tip to the dasher. That's infuriating because I order for 8-11 people (depending on how big our team was), and I tip 10-15%, which would mean that the tip did not go to the dasher. Grrr. I am still upset thinking about it. They charge a DoorDash fee to me, the consumer, and charge a different fee to the restaurant. It's upsett

Lunch from John 3:16 Malaysian Delights

It's the first time we have Malaysian food in Canada. I moved here in 2015, and yes, this is the first time we have Malaysian cuisine. John 3:16 Malaysian Delights is a popular restaurant in Richmond, BC, and they just opened a branch in the Fairview neighbourhood of Vancouver last April 13, 2021. They open at 11 in the morning, and I called their number to place our order for pick-up. We started walking towards the restaurant and were just in time for our order to be ready. Malaysian Feast from John 3:16 Malaysian Delights Appetizer We ordered three different dishes from the appetizer section of their menu. Curry Chicken Puff I have a background story with Curry Chicken Puff. Last 2014, hubby and I, with friends, went to Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia, to speak at an event. In that event, they have what feels like unlimited Curry Puff for people to just grab and eat all throughout the event, and holy s

Lunch from KFC delivered by DoorDash

Happy Thursday! It's unusual for us to order food during weekdays, but today is an exception. Hubby's employer gave him a $30 DoorDash gift card because he's part of the team that completed an important feature in their app. Today for lunch they had a townhall of a sort where the CEO said thank-you and congratulations to everyone involved. 2x KFC Famous Chicken Sandwich Ultimate Box Meal As for me, it's yay for free food. We decided that since we're forced to use a delivery app (DoorDash), we should only order from big chains that can most likely afford the exorbitant fees. I love KFC from the Philippines and Malaysia, even China, but I've always said that the KFC here is subpar. I would have no idea if they changed their recipe in the last 12 months, but my last two KFC orders were unexpectedly delicious. We both ordered  KFC Famous Chicken Chicken Sandwich

Lunch from MASA Japanese Restaurant

Happy Saturday! ハッピーサタデー It is a clear, sunny day in Vancouver. Hubby decided to take a jog around the Seawall while I run errands, and once I am done, we met up near Granville Island. For lunch today, we have decided to order from MASA Japanese Restaurant. It's a small local business near South Granville (along West Broadway at Hemlock Street). It's on the second floor of the building, on top of the Circle K convenience store. They offer an extensive Japanese food menu ranging from sushi, sashimi, teriyaki, Japanese curry, udon, and even ramen. I've tried different MASA dishes in the past (it's one of our go-to places for Japanese comfort food), and for today we have ordered mostly new things. Our order from MASA Japanese Restaurant for today If you know me by now, I almost always order the same dish from restaurants. Why take the chance of ordering a bad dish when I am sure that I'll enjoy the one I want? 😁 However, I am willing to try appetizers and desserts at
