Lunch from Siegel's Bagels

Happy Saturday! It's a beautiful sunny day in Vancouver, and hubby and I planned to go to Hadden Park. Before heading there, we decided to grab lunch from Siegel's Bagels. This place is popular! There's a long line of people placing their orders in person and more people waiting for orders at the pick-up window.   They also have an option to place your order using an awesome app. That's what we did. Hubby got the Reuben while I ordered Lox and Cream Cheese. For the Reuben, we picked Double Toasted Everything Bagel Reuben A layer of smoked meat, sauerkraut and melted swiss with mustard. Lox & Cream Cheese Wild Sockeye salmon and cream cheese with red onion + capers. I enjoyed both bagel sandwiches. The bagel is freshly made and the toppings

Croissants from Beaucoup Bakery

Bon Dimanche! Happy Sunday! It's a cloudy day in Vancouver today, but we decided to take a walk around the neighbourhood. I enjoyed the croissants from Mon Pitou yesterday , and I thought of getting more, but I changed my mind and got a couple from Beaucoup Bakery instead. Thankfully, they're still open, and the line wasn't long. Butter Croissants and Almond Croissants I ordered a couple butter croissants, two almond croissants, and hot chocolates. We thought about enjoying it at a nearby park, but there are no available tables. Instead, we end up walking home to enjoy our croissants there. Butter Croissant The butter croissant is saltier and not as flaky compared to the one from Mon Pitou. Or it's possible that because I ate Atlantic Salmon Lox Bagel with capers yesterday that I didn't taste the salt from the croissants from Mon Pitou. I don't know; it just tasted like Beaucoup used salted butter in their croissants. That said, the almond croissant is so much b

Breakfast from Mon Pitou

Joyeux Samedi! Happy Saturday! We're meeting a former colleague near our old office. They're closing down the office to save on rent. My former teammates will now have to work from home permanently. This means giving away, selling, and donating old office furniture and equipment. I got a free office chair, and we picked it up today. We're scheduled to meet at 10 in the morning, and for extra motivation (as if a free office chair is not sufficient motivation), hubby and I planned on having breakfast at Mon Pitou. Originally, I planned on grabbing breakfast from Paul's Omelettery Restaurant. However, hubby mentioned that we should try the newly opened Mon Pitou. They opened this year at the former location of Slickity Jim at 7th Avenue and Hemlock. I can finally use this photo I took last February when Mon Pitou is only a week old. We planned on ordering from their brunch menu.

Lunner from Poké Bar in Davie Village

Hauʻoli Pōʻaono! Happy Saturday! We decided to take a walk going to Downtown Vancouver today across the Burrard Bridge. On the other side of False Creek, hubby and I met my sister, who recently moved to West End, specifically near Davie Village. After hanging out for an hour at English Bay Beach, our only brother arrived. We stayed for an hour more and were having a great time just sharing stories and travel plans. I am so grateful to God for giving me, such wonderful siblings! We're missing our youngest sister, but in time I'm sure she'll be able to join us when she's more responsible and independent. When we've had enough vitamin sea, we grabbed lunner (late lunch / early dinner) from Poké Bar. Our brother loves poké ever since his trip to Hawaii a couple years ago. The closest poké place to my sister's apartment is Poké Bar. Poké Bar Aloha Curry Brown rice base, chicken karaage, almond milk, curry powder, green onion, and onion chips. If you know me by now, I

New York Cheesecake Dream Donut from Tim Hortons

Happy Thursday! Hubby and I did our 30-minute walk around the neighbourhood, and right before going home, we bought Salted Caramel Iced Capp. It's the one drink I look forward to from Tim Hortons every summer. Two of my favourite things from Tim Hortons: Potato Wedges and Salted Caramel Iced Capp I also secretly love their potato wedges and got those as well.  New York Cheesecake Dream Donut from Tim Hortons Hubby loves sweets, and whenever we're at Tims, he usually asks for whatever new or limited-time donut they offer. Today, we got to try their New York Cheesecake Dream Donut. It's alright. I still prefer the Sea Salted Caramel Dream and Chocolate Hazelnut Éclair Dream from earlier this year. What's your favourite Tim Hortons Dream Donut?

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
