Little Bacon Cheeseburger from Five Guys Burgers & Fries

It's Thursday, which means free (company-paid) lunch! This week's theme is burgers; my colleague suggested Five Guys Burgers & Fries.

I ordered a Little Bacon Cheeseburger with all-the-way topping and regular cajun-style fries.

Little Bacon Cheeseburger from Five Guys
Fresh, hand-formed patty hot off the grill with American-style cheese and strips of crispy apple-wood smoked bacon on top. Add as many toppings as you want.

Let's start! The buns arrived soggy, which is to be expected of delivered food. The beef was not as juicy as I'd liked, but it's possible that the buns absorbed all the goodness. The toppings are standard fare, but the bacon is the best. I'm not a fan of bacon, but that was perfectly crispy, adding much-needed texture to the burger.

Their fries are not made for delivery, which makes sense and is acceptable. The fries of Popeyes have better cajun seasoning.

For my amusement, below is a list of our team lunch so far:

Week Number:

  1. Brazilian: Boteco Brasil
  2. Chicken: Nando's
  3. Japanese: SUSHI UOmo Japanese Restaurant
  4. Bagel: Rosemary Rocksalt
  5. Thai: Thai Away Home
  6. Bagel (but we went for sandwiches): Meat & Bread
  7. Pies: Peaked Pies
  8. Comfort Food: Nene Chicken
  9. Burger: Five Guys Burgers & Fries

Savoury Twists from Tim Hortons

I wanted to say happy Thursday, but it's the 31st of the month, and my salary is not yet in my bank account, causing me great stress this morning. To make myself feel a bit better, I decided to drop by Tim Hortons for my favourite Sausage Farmers Wrap. Then, I noticed that Tims is selling Savoury Twists. There are two variants: Four Cheese Savoury Twists and Everything Savoury Twists.

Four Cheese Savoury Twists and Everything Savoury Twists from Tim Hortons

Okay. This was my first bite of food for the day, and the four cheese was soft, buttery, and cheesy. I absolutely love it. This is so much better than the savoury pastries.

The everything savoury twist is saltier than the four cheese, but it has the same soft, chewy texture.

More of this, please? It's so good. It just made the morning better.

Dacaron™ from Blenz Coffee

I love hanging out at Blenz near our home; recently, they added more sweets to their display case. They now have cakes in a jar and Dacarons™ from Earthling.

Dacarons are when a dacquoise and a macaron have a baby. I have tried macarons, but I have not tried a dacquoise.

The exterior of the dacaron has a similar texture to a macaron but is softer and less chewy. Blenz is offering six different variants, and we picked two: Double Chocolate and Japanese Matcha.

I tried the chocolate first, and since it was my first bite of this new dessert, I was unsure what to expect. The chocolate was not overly sweet and did not have an intense chocolate flavour. Other than a subtle sweetness, it was bland. My husband ate the Japanese Matcha first and loved the double chocolate.

Top: Double Chocolate Dacaron
Bottom: Japanese Matcha Dacaron
Both are available in selected Blenz Coffee locations.

I ate the matcha last and could taste the grassy and slightly bitter green tea flavour profile.

I look forward to trying the other flavours: blueberry balsamic, yuzu citrus, strawberry cream, and Tahitian vanilla bean.

Chicken Sun-Dried Pesto Wrap from Blenz Coffee

My husband has a teaching demo this evening. He might teach part-time at the university I graduated from, God-willing. Since I didn't want to disturb him during his demo, I decided to hang out at Blenz Coffee after work.

For dinner, I chose the Chicken Sun-Dried Pesto Wrap. According to the barista, she just made it, which is fantastic. It has a generous amount of chicken, and I also tasted green leafy vegetables (maybe spinach?), but not a strong taste of pesto or sun-dried tomatoes. However, it's one of the better wraps in Blenz.

I am also eyeing the Dacarons and might grab some next time.

Exploring Culinary Creations at Earls Test Kitchen

Happy Sunday! My husband and I watched Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One with my sister and her boyfriend at Scotiabank Theatre Vancouver. Afterwards, we decided to grab an early dinner at nearby Earls Kitchen + Bar Test Kitchen.

My sister, husband, and I got items from the test menu to try new things they offer. Her boyfriend went for the non-test menu, which is a great decision. The test menu is there for a reason.

The test menu items are unique to the test location, and I'll give honest feedback here.

Yuzu Calamari

For our appetizer, we ordered Yuzu Calamari. It's usually rich, fried calamari with unique yuzu aioli and togarashi dipping sauce. After a few bites, I asked hubby if he tasted anything different with this dish. He told me about the dip,   so I focused on analyzing it. Annoyingly, I get no citrusy profile, and since my spice tolerance is relatively high, the supposedly spicy togarashi is not enough.

Yuzu Calamari from Earls Test Kitchen
Yuzu aioli, togarashi, fresh cucumber, jalapeño

I'll happily order the calamari again, but I don't think the yuzu-ness came through.

Truffled Parmesan Chicken

For our main course, hubby and I shared the Truffled Parmesan Chicken and Roast Beef Sandwich.

I had high expectations for the Truffled Parmesan Chicken because it comes with mushroom risotto. Unfortunately, I did not taste any truffle flavour; the chicken's exterior was slightly burnt while the interior was dry as the dessert Tom Cruise was horseback riding through in the movie.

Truffled Parmesan Chicken from Earls Test Kitchen
Mushroom risotto, arugula, lemon oil, watermelon radish

The risotto was on the dryer side, too. A third cup of broth and allowing it to be absorbed by the supposed arborio rice. Again, it's not something I'll order again.

Roast Beef Sandwich

It's one of the better foods we tried today. The shaved beef was tender, the grilled sourdough was perfectly buttered, and the arugula added its distinct flavour profile.

However, I am uncertain if I like the horseradish cream. The horseradish intensity and kick were too strong for my liking.

Roast Beef Sandwich from Earls Test Kitchen

I wonder if I will order this again. The roast beef I had from Blue Hat Cafe at the Pacific Institute of Culinary Arts is definitely better.

Prime Striploin

My sister ordered the prime striploin with garlic mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. She said the crispy onions on top of the mashed potatoes were good, while the seasonal vegetables were excellent. The meat was unevenly cooked - some sections were perfect medium while others were well done. This is the same experience we had the last time we visited Earls.

Key Lime Pie

Finally! Something absolutely excellent from the test menu: the key lime pie. I thought they would give us a slice of key lime pie, but we received what looked like a 5-inch pie, which we shared. It was a perfect balance of sweet and tart. Please bring this to all your locations.

Toasted coconut, chantilly cream, graham crumble, lime

After dinner, we strolled across Burrard Bridge. We went left to South Granville while my sister and her boyfriend went right to Kitsilano.

Chicken Sandwich from Cineplex Outtakes

It's National Cinema Day (, and movies cost $5.00 at Cineplex. Since I have enough Scene Points, my husband and I watched Mission Impossible Dead Reckoning Part One for free! We watched the adrenaline-packed movie with my sister and her boyfriend at Scotiabank Theatre Vancouver.

Before the movie, I did what I usually do: take menu pictures. My Cineplex Outtakes menu post is receiving a lot of traffic thanks to Barbie and Oppenheimer moviegoers, so it's time to update it. Most things were $2.00 more expensive than last year.

Chicken Sandwiches, Fries, Chicken Boneless Bites, and Chicken Tenders from Cineplex Outtakes

We ordered the Chicken Sandwich Combo for lunch, which is pretty delicious. We also ordered chicken tenders and chicken boneless chicken bites. They taste the same, just different in shape.

After finishing our chicken feast, I want to try the nachos with cheese dip. The one at BC Place is better. Although, they're more generous with their cheese.

Nachos from Cineplex

I want the cheese dip with fries. Hmmm. Maybe next time I go to the movies.

Beef Kare-Kare and Chicken Barbecue from Pampanga's Cuisine | Pista ng Bayan 2023

Before I discuss the food, I want to say that Pista ng Bayan is one of the better-organized Filipino events we attended in Metro Vancouver this year. I love how the stage is in the middle while the vendors and booths are wrapped around it. You can explore the market while still being entertained by talented Filipinos.

Now, let's discuss the food. After devouring the bento box from Plato Filipino, we got Combo 2 from Pampanga's Cuisine, which comes with our choice of two meat and rice.

I chose beef kare-kare and chicken barbecue.

Combo 2 with Beef Kare-Kare and Chicken Barbecue from Pampanga's Cuisine

The kare-kare didn't look like the usual colour, but it tasted like peanuts,   which is good. I need my veggies and bagoong. But overall, it satisfied my kare-kare craving.

The chicken barbecue was perfectly caramelized outside and still tender inside. It's perfect.

I'm so happy to be able to support both Filipino restaurants that are part of Pista ng Bayan.

Filipino Bento Box from Plato Filipino | Pista ng Bayan 2023

Happy Saturday! After hubby's volunteering with Friends of VPL, we dropped by on day 1 of Pista ng Bayan at Robson Square.

Our first stop is Plato Filipino. They're offering a bento box Filipino version. It comes with rice (of course), lumpiang shanghai (Filipino spring roll), buko pandan, a choice of between Filipino-style spaghetti, pancit, or palabok, and a choice between Plato Express, beef kaldereta (tomato beef stew with liver spread), or barbecue.

We went for palabok and beef kaldereta, plus I ordered an extra Filipino-style pork barbecue.

Filipino-style Bento Box from Plato Filipino
Buko pandan, beef kaldereta, white rice, palabok, atchara, and lumpiang shanghai

The rice absorbed the sauce from the kaldereta. 🤤 The beef could be a bit more tender, while the lumpiang shanghai is no longer crispy. To be fair, they have been here the whole day.

The palabok was doused with too much calamansi. It's too sour, while the buko pandan was awesome.

We also ordered sago't gulaman, perfect for this hot summer day.

Muffins from VN Convenience inside VPL

Before heading to his volunteer with Friends of the VPL, we grabbed some muffins from VN Convenience inside the Vancouver Public Library Center branch.

This is what a muffin should be - chewy exterior, soft interior, and not overly sweet.

We got a Chocolate Muffin and a Banana Muffin. The banana doesn't have a strong banana flavour, so I recommend the chocolate muffin.

Chocolate Muffin and Banana Muffin fr.VN Convenience

What's amusing about VN Convenience is they offer all sorts of guilty pleasures like chips, so many chocolates, and coffee. 

There are only a few stores inside VPL. Many closed already, so please support the small businesses that are still doing their best to survive.

Original and Classic from Straight Brooklyn Pizza (Robson)

It's a beautiful sunny Saturday. My husband is doing volunteer work with Friends of the VPL at 1:00 p.m.

I woke up late, moved slowly, and forgot my Compass card for transit at home. We needed to find a place around the Vancouver Public Library for a quick first meal of the day and found Straight Brooklyn Pizza.

I am no pizza expert, but their pizza feels like a hybrid between New York-style and Naples-style. It's huge and foldable like the NY-style, but there's the nice char and thinnest expected of Neopolitan.

The Original slice is a Margherita pizza, which is recommended for Italian-style pizza. It's delicious with tarty tomato, melted mozzarella, and a pop of basil. I love it.

Margherita Pizza - tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil

However, it's hard to beat the Classic slice with pepperoni, a New York staple. The sliced circular meat provides savoury flavour and additional depth of flavour to the 15" slice of pizza.

The best NY-style pizza I've had in Vancouver is from AJ's Brooklyn Pizza Joint.

Drumsticks and Shack-Shack Fries from Nene Chicken

Happy Thursday! This week, our team's lunch theme is comfort food. When asked what familiar culinary flavours I seek for solace, I immediately responded 'fried chicken.' A follow-up question inquired whether I preferred the standard version or the Korean iteration, to which I replied, 'Either work - after all, both are forms of fried chicken.;

With our theme decided, I embarked on a quest (searched) to discover the finest options available for delivery in Vancouver. This culinary exploration (Google) led us to Nene Chicken, renowned for its delectable Korean fried chicken offerings. This marked my first foray into Vancouver's Korean fried chicken scene, adding to my excitement.

Original Drumstick from Nene Chicken

Working within a budget, I opted for a classic order: the Shack-Shack Fries and a 3-piece serving of original drumsticks. Meanwhile, my colleague indulged in a 5-piece drumstick, enhanced with the addition of the snowing chilli sauce. We exchanged portions, with her offering a piece of her drumstick while she received a share of my fries.

Snowing Chilli from Nene Chicken

The drumsticks showcased a light yet satisfyingly crispy batter, although some sections did exhibit a touch of sogginess, which is understandable given it was delivered. Beneath the delicate exterior, the chicken meat was remarkably juicy. With the addition of the snowing chilli sauce, its fiery spiciness certainly provided a vibrant wake-up call for my senses. In contrast, the cheese power of the Shack-Shack Fries introduced a balance of flavours.

Our Nene Chicken team lunch was gratifying, satiating my hunger for delectable fried chicken. This experience solidified Nene Chicken's reputation as a place of comfort food par excellence, leaving me looking forward to a future visit.

For my amusement, below is a list of our team lunch so far:

Week Number:

  1. Brazilian: Boteco Brasil
  2. Chicken: Nando's
  3. Japanese: SUSHI UOmo Japanese Restaurant
  4. Bagel: Rosemary Rocksalt
  5. Thai: Thai Away Home
  6. Bagel (but we went for sandwiches): Meat & Bread
  7. Pies: Peaked Pies
  8. Comfort Food: Nene Chicken

Mediterranean Crêpe from Kara's Crêpes | Kitsilano Farmers Market

Happy Sunday to you! After Mass today, I asked hubby if we can take a walk to Kitsilano Farmers Market and just explore. I've only been to Riley Park Farmers Market so I wanted to compare. At 12:00 NN, the Kits market is very much alive. There are more produced than Riley Park and everything smelled so good. Yum!

For lunch, we grabbed two crêpes from Kara's Crêpe. For our savoury lunch, I opted for Mediterranean. I absolutely love the flavour combination of hearty msuhrooms, sweet caramelized onions, and tangy sundried tomatoes. While the tender and delicate crêpe is a great contrast to slightly crunchy melted mozzarella cheese. I wish I didn't have to share.

Sauteed mushrooms, caramelized onions, sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, and pesto

My terrible attempt to take a picture of the crepe after taking a few bites.

For our sweet crêpe, I chose the classic Nutella and Banana. The rich and creamy hazelnut spread is beautifully complemented by the natural sweetness of ripe bananas. It's so satisfying.

I didn't bring justice to the Nutella & Banana Crêpe from Kara's Crêpe

Yay for slow summer weekend when we're not rushing to events or places. Thank God!

Food Adventure at the PNE Summer Fair

As part of our annual summer tradition, hubby and I went to the PNE Fair. I aim to document and take pictures of the menu and food vendors inside, which I post here.

We arrived at Playland around 2:00 PM and walked around to take pictures of the food booths and food trucks.

Our first food is the ribs and brisket from Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ. Last year there were two competing barbecues selling the same meats. This year it's only Prairie BBQ. The brisket is incredible. The rib is good, too, but the real winner is the sweet sauce. The Filipino in me wants a cup of rice.

Rib & Brisket Combo from Prairie Smoke & Spice BBQ

After an excellent first bite of food at the PNE Fair, we went for red velvet mini donuts. It doesn't taste like red velvet, but it's soft and sweet with the glaze.

Red Velvet Mini Donuts from The Mini Donuts

We walked around the Playland area and watched the rides, and listened to people glee in excitement. Then, we spotted Jamaican patties from Jamaican Mi Juicy. The beef filling is juicier and better than Morgan's Harbour, but it's not filled all the way.

Beef Jamaican Patty from Jamaican Mi Juicy

We walked around PNE and went inside Argodome & Plaza to watch the Knights of Valour. Then, we entered the food arena to check out the vendors. We also explored the Canoe Cultures on the way to Beyond Monet (The Immersive Experience). It made me dizzy.

I asked hubby what he wanted, and he said bacon-wrapped hotdog. I thought it'll be a standard-size hotdog sandwich. Apparently, it's a footlong! 😱 The hotdog was delicious. The bacon is well bacon.

Bacon Wrapped from Super Foot-Long Hot Dogs
Premium center-cut bacon generously wrapped around our famous classic footlong.

We tried the PNE staple for our next food: Jimmy's Lunch since 1929, and ordered their hamburger and fries. My favourite thing about the burger is the soft sweet bun. The beef was juicy, topped with sweet onion and mustard. The flavour works well together.

Cheese, onion, mustard, and relish

We grabbed lemonade slushy from Slush Zone, which I did not enjoy.

Lemonade Slush from Slush Zone

Our last food for today is Cheetos Corn Dog. It's usual corndog covered in cheese dusted with crushed Cheetos. It was good. I love the cheese coating and the crunch provided by Cheetos, but if I can only get one corn dog from the PNE Fair, I'll go for the Korean Rice corndog.

Flamin' Cheetos Corndog from Chicky's Chicken

After enjoying the corndog, we walked around the fairgrounds and decided to call it a day and go home. Thank God for the beautiful cloudy day. It wasn't unbearably hot.

PNE Food Vendor List with Menu and Price | 2023

Last year, I went to PNE Fair to create a list of food booths and food trucks. I'm doing the same this year (2023).

All prices are in Canadian dollars and are subject to changes without prior notice. The list is based on our visit last August 19, 2023. I also noticed they do not accept cash - only credit cards, debit cards, and PNE gift cards.
