Where to get Buko Pie in Vancouver?

I am craving for Filipino buko pie, but I don't know where's the best place to get one that will deliver to our home. I asked the Facebook group I belong to and below are their suggestions: Vancouver Restaurants with Buko Pie Kumare Restaurant and Bakery - They have a branch in Richmond, Delta, and Vancouver. Hapag Ihaw Ihaw Filipino Grill - Two people, recommended the buko pie from Hapag. They're located in Victoria Drive, Vancouver. Aling Mary's - They're located in Main Street, Vancouver, and I have ordered a buko pie from them in the past, but I know they don't deliver. Home-Based Online Vendor with Buko Pie Pinay Bakes - Facebook page - Two people recommended their buko pie. Ruby Lyn Dacanay - She's the first one to send me a private message and pictures of the buko pie, and it looks great. Do you know of other places in Vancouver that serve buko pie? Leave a comment

Lunch at Redbeef Noodle Kitchen

I have been eating Redbeef every month this year (given - it's only February). We went to Costco today and I asked my parents where they want to eat and my dad LOVES Redbeef Noodle Kitchen. I treat my parents to restaurants I love in Vancouver and Redbeef is the only one that my dad loves (others are so-so for him). Of course, I am more than happy to treat them to delicious food and spend quality time. Chicken Cutlet Rice One thing you should know about me by now is I am consistent with the food I order from my favourite restaurants. As expected, I ordered my favourite Chicken Cutlet Rice and a side of salt & pepper popcorn chicken. Spicy Beef Noodle Soup My brother ordered the Spicy Beef Noodle Soup. The meat looks tender and the noodles has a nice bite and texture, but the soup doesn't penetrate the noodles as much. Pan-fried Beef Wraps The Pan-Fried Beef Wrap is my mom's favourite so I got two orders to make sure we'll be able to eat some. Last time she finished

Hubby's birthday cake from Yum Sweet Shop

Happy birthday to my dearest husband! I asked him what he'd like for his birthday and he said ice cream cake because he hasn't had it. I was planning to order from Marble Slab Creamery, but they were close yesterday. I was scrambling to find another ice cream cake vendor. I need a small one since if we get the big ones from Dairy Queen, it will be too big for our fridge. I found Yum Sweet Shop! Hubby is happy with his ice cream cake and I enjoyed my red velvet cake as well. The best part is we could finish it without having leftovers! I love the Ice Creamery Yum & Sweet Shop paper bag Ice Cream Cake Slice Salted caramel and vanilla ice cream layered with chocolate and marshmallow cake Happy Monday!

Hubby's Birthday Lunch delivery from AJ's Brooklyn Pizza Joint

Happy birthday to my dearest husband! I asked him what he'd like for his birthday and he said ice cream cake because he hasn't had it. He also wanted pizza and he's very specific that it needs to be from a small, local business and not a pizza chain. I have no idea where to order from, so I made a search for the best pizza in Vancouver and found AJ's Brooklyn Pizza Joint. Spicy Four Cheese Mozzarella, Gorgonzola, Ricotta, Fresh Parmesan, Topped with Mike's Hot Honey The Spicy Four Cheese is sweet because of the honey and salty from the different cheeses. It was perfect. The Supreme New Yorker Calabrese, spicy sausage, pepperoni topped with tomato sauce and ricotta cheese. The Supreme New Yorker is flavourful and spicy because of the meat. Somehow, I prefer the Spicy Four Cheese. I can't believe it took me this long to order New York-style pizza that you need to fold to eat. It was delicious! It's nothing compared to the pizza I get from pizza chains. Meatbal

Valentine's Day lunch delivery from Basil Pasta Bar

I have no idea why but my idea of a romantic meal involves pasta. I was searching for the best pasta places nearby, but I kept coming back to Basil Pasta Bar because I am certain  that it will be delicious and that I won't be disappointed (as long as I don't add extra cheese to everything LOL). Pesto Shrimp Linguine with extra meat A delicious pesto shrimp linguine made with pesto cream sauce, shrimp, spinach, and white wine. This dish is garnished with basil and Parmesan cheese. Maple Bacon Conchiglie Maple bacon conchiglie made with marinara sauce, pure maple syrup, bacon, red onions, mushrooms, red peppers, and corn. This dish is garnished with mozzarella cheese and fresh basil. Minestrone Soup A thick soup made with vegetables.

Lunar New Year Lunch delivery from Grand Chinese Restaurant (Yaletown)

Happy Lunar New Year! We ordered our favourite Chinese dishes for lunch today from a new restaurant - Grand Chinese Restaurant in Yaletown. Beef Rolls We love beef rolls! The best one is still from Peaceful Restaurant , but this comes a close second. What's the difference? This one has a thicker wrap, but the beef and sauce are as delicious. Xiao Long Bao It's hard to judge the Xiao Long Bao when it's delivered and not fresh from a restaurant kitchen, but it's still good. Pan-Fried Pork Buns Inside of the Pan-Fried Pork Buns I discovered that I prefer pan-fried pork buns over steamed ones. However, this one has more dough than filling.  Shanghai-style Chow Mein This is my favourite dish from Grand Chinese Restaurant and I give this the "award" of becoming my favourite Shanghai-style chow men. It's slightly sweet but has that great flavour. I don't think I have tried a Shanghai-style chow mein which I will crave and would want to eat again. Dan Dan Nood

Super Bowl dinner delivery from Colony Bar Kits

Happy Sunday! It's Super Bowl night. I'm not rooting for one team - I dislike them both. 🤣 However, I will use the Super Bowl as an excuse to order from Colony Bar Kits. Colony Bar is a great place to watch the Super Bowl. They have a lot of TVs and monitors, but because of the pandemic we have decided to stay home and just order in. Colony Poutine - Hand Chipped Kennebec Potatoes, Cheese Curds, Beef Gravy The Colony Bar chain is part of La Poutine Week and I enjoyed their poutine. It's delicious - cheese curds, gravy, and French fries. Yum! C.B. Burger with Yam Fries - 100% CAB Beef Patty, Aged Cheese, Butter Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion, Pickles, Burger Sauce Hubby ordered the C.B Burger with Yam Fries and both was delicious. This food made me realize how much I miss going to

La Poutine Week delivery from Storm Crow Alehouse

즐거운 토요일! Jeulgeoun Toyoil! Happy Saturday! We started watching the Korean series Guardian: The Lonely and Great God last night and want to support restaurants part of La Poutine Week this February 1-7, so we end up ordering from Storm Crow Alehouse. Coincidentally, they serve Korean-inspired poutine called "Bibimbap-Ity-Boo Brisket Poutine." Bibimbap-Ity-Boo Brisket Poutine Hand-punched fries, cheese curds, smothered in a house-made beef gochujang gravy, topped with slow-roasted brisket, crispy portobello mushrooms, pickled onions, and a delicious soft poached egg. The egg and mushrooms were the best part of the poutine. The brisket and gravy were too salty for my liking. Basic Dungeon Burger with extra bacon Slow your roll, start basic with our house made beef patty, romaine lettuce, tomato, onion, storm sauc
