Dinner at Memphis Blues Barbecue House

After Mass, last Saturday, hubby and I decided to take a trip to Memphis without living Vancouver. How? By trying barbecue from Memphis Blues Barbecue House in West Broadway. Memphis Blues Barbecue House I love barbecue. Whether it's Korean or Filipino-style, barbecue tastes so good! It's tangy and sweet and a bit of heat. Yum! Going to Memphis Blues, I have no idea what to expect; all I know is that You Gotta Eat Here visited this joint. Jomar and I (like we always do) order a starter, main course, and dessert. BBQ Poutine For our starter, we picked BBQ Poutine. I mean, we're in Canada, of course, we'll pick the poutine. Honestly, it was a debate between BBQ Nachos or BBQ Poutine and well, you know what won. BBQ Poutine It was delicious. The fries are crispy even though it's smothered and drowning under the weight of the pulled pork and BBQ sauce. The cheese (though not as melted as I would like) provided a creamy texture. Moreover, the serving size

Dinner at Tony's Fish and Oyster Cafe

Fish and Chips is not famous (at least I don't think so) in the Philippines. However, on my second day in Canada, my parents brought my ex-boyfriend (now, hubby) and me to Pajo's in Steveston, Richmond, to try precisely that. I was surprised at how significant the portions were, and well, you can never go wrong with fries, especially if it's unlimited, and you can come back for more. Also, I have always liked salmon (whether raw, grilled, or in a soup) and seeing and eating it in deep-fried goodness was terrific. Tony's Last Friday, hubby and I went to my favourite fish and chips place in Vancouver so far - Tony's Fish and Oyster Cafe, located near the entrance of Granville Island. I have been here 16 times (as of this post) because I love their salmon and yam fries. Salmon Fish and Chips with Yam Fries Another reason I love this place, it's a walking distance to work. When I am stressed out or needed a feel-good food, Tony's is my go-to place. Mo

Lazy Sunday Hangout at Blenz

Dinner at The American Cheesesteak Co.

Growing up in the Philippines, I only heard of the famous Philly Cheesesteak in movies or when watching Food Network. Thus, it shouldn't come as a surprise that last Saturday was the first time I tried a Philly Cheesesteak from The American Cheesesteak Co. in Vancouver. I have an uncle and cousins in Philadelphia, and when I visit my goal is to try a Philly Cheesesteak while in Philly. The same way I was so ecstatic to eat Japanese Katsu Curry in Japan and Vigan Empanada in Vigan. The American Cheesesteak Co. Hubby and I went to St. Paul's Hospital for the last weekend of Lights of Hope and decided to have dinner here. Why? First, it's close to Granville Street, where we will take the bus going home and second, I remember seeing the You Gotta Eat Here episode featuring them. My sister and I are attempting to try most of the restaurants John Catucci went to. Here's a map of restaurants the show visited in BC as of Season 5. The Philly VS New Yorker Since it

Dinner at Mac Falafel

I love how diverse Canada is. Back in Manila, I usually eat at either Filipino, Chinese, or Japanese cuisine restaurants. I wouldn't know where to find great authentic Mediterranean and Middle Eastern food. Because of Canada's diversity, I get to try amazing food from different countries all over the world. Mac Falafel Last 2016, my colleagues and I went to Mac Falafel on their 4th Avenue branch for lunch, and I ordered their Chicken Shawarma. On the first Friday of 2018, Jomar and I had our Friday dinner here. My goal right now is to make sure hubby gets to try all the restaurants I have been to during our 2-year long-distance relationship. Chicken Shawarma on whole wheat wrap with everything on it. Mac Falafel is a small eatery beside Noodle Box. I think people pass by this joint thinking it's a hole in a wall. They usually go straight to Romer's or Noodle Box or the Japanese restaurant on the right. But this unassuming eatery serves amazing Mediterranea
