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

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.

Tiramisu
Dark roast espresso coffee between layers of creamy mascarpone mousse blended with rich coffee liqueur, and topped with fluffy whipped cream.

I love both pasta we ordered today! Yay! I can't wait to try more of their dishes. #supportlocal

Lunch delivery from Klasik Inasal and Noodle Express

Happy Tuesday! It's rare for us to have anything delivered on a weekday, but well we have no viand to go with our rice so might as well order Filipino food. Last week, we had Chinese cuisine which goes well with rice, this week it's Filipino food. I have ordered from Klasik Inasal in the past and I ordered three same dishes: Shanghai Roll, Pork BBQ Skewer, and Eggplant Omelette ( Tortang Talong ). 2 orders of Pork BBQ Skewer and I apparently made a mistake and only ordered one serving of deep-fried Shanghai roll Eggplant Omelette (Tortang Talong)   Party Tray I ordered two viand (ulam) so we have something to eat for the rest of the week. Hubby kept saying will two be enough for the rest of the week. He doubts my food budgeting skills lol. I understand his hesitation since the "party tray" we ord

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

Lunch at Chipotle

We walked 30 minutes to the closest Chipotle and had our fill of the huge burrito and chicken quesadilla. I'm happy. Huge Burrito! The burrito is so big, we had to share it. Chicken Quesadilla Amazing service! After lunch, we walked back home to "burn" calories.

Dinner delivery from Panago Pizza

Coconut curry sauce in a pizza? You bet! I love Panago's Veggie Korma! I decided that we'll have it for dinner tonight and save any leftovers for the rest of the week. Veggie Korma -  Medium Original Crust, Pineapple, Peppers-Green, Blend-Mozza + Cheddar, Baby Spinach, Spicy-Banana Peppers, Coconut Curry Sauce Pesto Chicken -  Medium Original Crust, Tomatoes-Sun-dried, Onions-Caramelized, Parmesan, Chicken-Grilled, Peppers-Red, Mozzarella, Pesto Sauce Garlic Cheezy Bread Chicken Bites Chocolate Chunk Pretzel Cookie Happy Sunday! I hope you had a great weekend!

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

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.
