Dinner delivery from Pizza Hut

I had a long Monday because it's Cyber Monday and people want to take advantage of deals last minute. Anyway, I have been working from 7:40 a.m. until 5:40 p.m. with a 20-minute or so lunch break. The phone was ringing nonstop and people were sending messages in chat and email. Crazy day. I thought I'd give myself a rewarding dinner, but I wasn't really craving anything in particular. All I know is our fridge is nearly empty so I needed to order something we can eat for a few days. I was thinking of Chinese food since we always can cook rice, but I don't feel like eating Chinese food. I thought about Domino's Pizza and KFC because they're both having a promo for Cyber Monday. I end up ordering from Pizza Hut. I ordered a Triple Treat box and pasta. It's my first time trying their pasta. 12" Canadian Pizza (Pepperoni, bacon crumble, sliced mushrooms and pizza mozzarella)

Lunch delivery from Daikichi Sushi Shop

We didn't order any food from restaurants yesterday, which is extremely rare for us. I had to work an extra day because our company is making a Black Friday weekend sale and we want to give our customers the best experience. On top of working 6 days last week, I am scrambling to finish this side project I'm working on, plus running errands and cleaning the house. Honestly, it's too much. Today, I decided to slow down a bit and relax. I continued working on the side project in the morning then decided to order for lunch from Daikichi Sushi Shop. Our food coma lunch from Daikichi Sushi Shop Chicken Teriyaki Box (Assorted tempura, chicken teriyaki, California roll, rice, salad, and spring roll.) Chicken Karaage

Lunch delivery from Bombay Masala Indian Restaurant

We had leftover rice from yesterday, so we needed to order from a place that eats rice as much as we (Filipinos) do. Sorting by Skip Score in SkipTheDishes, one of the first few suggestions was Bombay Masala Indian Restaurant. Since my parents are bringing us food for the week this week, hubby said we only order a couple dishes instead of our usual too much. Palak Paneer - Cottage cheese cooked in a fresh spinach curry tempered with garlic, ginger, and a touch of cream. Somehow, I prefer the Palak Paneer from Meinhardt Fine Foods.  Chicken Vindaloo - Boneless chicken cooked in a tangy curry sauce The one from New India Buffet + Bar & Restaurant is better. I don't know why. Veggie Samosa - Vegetarian. Crisp homemade patties stuffed with potatoes and green peas served with chutney. One order comes with two pieces. The samosa was great. I enjoyed the crunchy outside. Garlic Naan - Garnished naan with garlic and corriander The naan was the best thing we've had from this deliver

Lunch delivery from Pizza Pizza

It's our first time trying pizza from Pizza Pizza. We ordered too much like always, and you can never really go wrong with pizza, so from pizza alone, it's nothing spectacular. However, my favourite thing that we ordered, which I plan to order again, is their jalapeno poppers. All our order from Pizza Pizza Small Meat Supreme - It's your standard meat pizza. Jalapeno Poppers - This is the BEST Jalapeno Poppers I have tried so far. Half Moon Cheesy Bread - It's great with the marinara sauce. Chicken Bites - It's again standard chicken bites, but it's too expensive, in my opinion. Large Potato Wedges

Lunch delivery from Johnny Rockets

I love the animated series Bob's Burgers, and there's an episode where Gene, Tina and Louise were singing outside their restaurant, "Burgers and Fries" LOL. I just remembered that when I started writing this blog about our burger and fries lunch from Johnny Rockets. Two signature burgers, two "love-at-first-bites", and two small premium shakes. Chipotle Bacon Burger - Spicy. Melted pepper jack cheese, thick-cut smoked bacon, caramelized onions, lettuce, tomato, and Johnny Rocket's smokin' chipotle ranch. The Rocket Burger - Canadian cheddar, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and special sauce. We ordered two burgers. I love them both, but as expected, I am biased for th

Dinner delivery from Pacific Poke

It's my first time trying Poke. I have seen a lot of Poke restaurants opening up here in Vancouver and I have watched a Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives episode about it, but that's the limit of my exposure. Oh and my brother went to Hawaii and absolutely love the dish. I was hesitant to order Poke, but I am letting SkipTheDishes decide my meals for today (check this blog post ). Our very first Poke Bowls EVER. The Main Bowl - Salmon, spicy ahi tuna, crab and shrimp, ginger jicama, avocado nori, seaweed salad, citrus mayonnaise, and sesame miso dressing. I picked Brown Rice as my base. There's no denying the bowl looks beautiful. I mixed it up and started eating my heart away. It's delicious, however, I have reached a point where's the creaminess from the mayonnaise and dressing is too much I need spice or citrus to brighten it up. I couldn't finish my bowl. I told hubby that next time we should just order one bowl and share it. The Cali Bowl - Spicy salmon, crab and

Lunch delivery from Papaya Hut

Weekend! Honestly, we're not craving anything this weekend. I thought of relying on Foursquare to help me decide to order, but I realize I would prefer it as a guide when I feel safe to dine in again. For today, I trusted SkipTheDishes instead. It has become my favourite delivery platform because of the Skip Points, and I love how you can sort restaurants by Skip Score, Delivery Fee, and Time Estimate. We ordered from Papaya Hut because it's second on the list when sorted by Skip Score, and we already have tried the first on their list. Our order from Papaya Hut Green Curry - Gaeng Khiaowan Thai Curry is my second favourite curry dish (Japanese curry is number one). We enjoyed this with brown rice. Thai Fried Noodles - Pad Thai with Tomato Sauce Pad Thai is a standard-issue as well, nothing spectacular. Chicken Wings - Peek Gai Tod The chicken wings are the best ones I've tried from a Thai restaurant. When we opened the container, it smelled so good. I want to order two mor

My Birthday Celebration: Lunch delivery from Suika

I have two birthday requests for my birthday: mocha cake and katsu curry from Suika. Because there's a steady increase of COVID-19 cases in BC, we decided to order Suika for delivery instead of dining in. I got my favourite Stewed Beef Tendon Curry with Tonkotsu Wagyu Stewed Hamburg Hayashi Bowl Chicken Kara-age I can't wait to eat in Suika again.

My Birthday Celebration: Cake from Arts to Bakes

It's my birthday weekend. We went to my parent's place in Richmond, BC, to celebrate. Don't worry, we didn't invite people to the celebration - it's just seven people and two households. The first household is me, and my husband and the second household is my parents and three siblings. Mocha Cake from Arts to Bakes KayeBakes CA is my go-to cake source, but Kaye is busy, so I asked the Filipino food group if they would please recommend a place or person who bakes delicious mocha cake since I really want it for my birthday. The first comment recommended Arts to Bakes. I sent their page a message and asked about the price, delivery, etc. Mocha Cake from Arts to Bakes in Vancouver, BC. It's too pretty to eat. I am delighted with the mocha cake. It's beautiful, and more importantly, it's delicious. The cake is moist, and initially, I thought the coffee flavour is too strong, but with each bite, including the buttercream, it's perfect. The sweet chocolate

My Birthday Celebration: Filipino Food from Tasty Pinoy BBQ Skewers at iba pa

It's my birthday weekend. We went to my parent's place in Richmond, BC, to celebrate. Don't worry, we didn't invite people to the celebration - it's just seven people and two households. The first household is my husband and me, and the second household is my parents and three siblings. I asked my mom to cook spaghetti for my birthday, and I thought of ordering from LA Chicken. Spaghetti and fried chicken is like a staple in Filipino birthday children's party. However, I became lazy and didn't want to line up and order from LA Chicken. Feast from Tasty Pinoy BBQ Skewers at Iba pa To go with my mom's spaghetti, I ordered lumpiang shanghai (Filipino-style spring rolls), pork BBQ in skewers, kwek-kwek, and kare-kare.
