AYCE Korean BBQ Lunch at Dae Bak Bon Ga

Happy Saturday! 즐거운 토요일 I got my second dose of vaccine today, and as a celebration that hubby and I are now vaccinated, we walked along Robson Street from Canada Place in search of a place to have lunch. I was thinking of going to Ramen Danbo, but the line is ridiculously long, and I saw a sign for all-you-can-eat (AYCE) Korean BBQ. I was craving for Korean BBQ even though we just had it last Wednesday for dinner . We had Set B, and I ordered one of each meat they have to offer, some of the dishes, and all sides (except rice). Of the dishes, I would recommend the Jumukbab (Rice Balls) and if you like dumplings getting the deep-fried dumplings is a good idea too. Otherwise, focus your attention on getting the meat. From the sides, I enjoyed the kimchi and sweet potato. They're both good palate cleansers when the meat is too much. AYCE Korean BBQ AYCE Korea BBQ Meat on the grill We only did one round because hubby was full already. I wonder if there are other good AYCE Korean BBQ in

Birthday Dinner at Royal Seoul House Restaurant

Happy birthday, Pa! It's our dad's birthday and to celebrate we had Korean BBQ. We originally wanted Japanese BBQ from Gyu-Kaku, but we're seven people (me and my hubby, my parents, and three siblings), and they couldn't accommodate our big group. As such, we end up in Royal Seoul House Restaurant, which is the closest Korean restaurant to our place. We ordered our usual - Combo B (beef, pork, and chicken), Deep Fried Pork Dumplings, Seafood Pancake, and Japchae. Moreover, my brother and I are feeling adventurous, so we ordered two new dishes that we don't usually order: Ttok-Bokki (it's my first time trying it) and Deopbap. Deopbap Rice topped with assorted veggies in a hot stone bowl with pork. I am not a fan of their Deopbap, but to be fair, I am eating other dishes with a stronger flavour, so I couldn't appreciate it as much. Ttok-Bokki Stir-fried rice cake, veggies, and fish cake with a spicy sauce Ttok-Bokki is something you will frequently see when wa

Mango Cheesecake from Trees Cheesecake + Organic Coffee

I am obsessed with the seasonal cheesecake flavours of Trees Cheesecake + Organic Coffee. Matcha Cheesecake last June 6 Taro Cheesecake last June 26 Mango Cheesecake today My favourite is still the Matcha Cheesecake, but the Mango Cheesecake has mango chunks in them. Although, the mango flavour is not that strong on the cheesecake itself.

Lunch at Suika

I love Suika! I can't believe that I lasted two months without eating my favourite Signature Beef Curry. It's still so good and satisfying. We were the first customer today and were able to grab a table on their patio. Today's Food Specials: Chef's Special We ordered from their Today's Food Specials menu. Both items are delicious. I don't think I've had a bad item from Suika. Beef Stamina Bowl Grilled short rib slices with homemade yuzu-kalbi sauce, soft boiled egg, and kimchi on rice. This is like a play on bibimbap. I have been craving kimchi, and this satisfied that! The short rib is tender, the vegetables provide the crunch, and the egg provides creaminess for the whole dish. The kimchi flavour balances everything out. Wasamayo Brullop Fritter Deep-fried brussels sprouts and scallops with seaweed batter and edamame wasabi mayo on the side. The outside is crunchy. The brussels sprouts are piping hot once you bit into the center. Meanwhile, the scallops ar

Dinner at Sushivan Japanese Restaurant

As much as I enjoy supporting food trucks,  there's something special and nice from eating inside a restaurant. I was craving kimchi, so we end up having dinner at Sushivan Japanese Restaurant. It's one of our three go-to places near South Granville for Japanese food. Kimchi Fried Rice Pan-fried kimchi, bacon, and onion topped with a sunny-side-up egg Soy Garlic Chicken Karage Instead of getting my usual, Korean-style ramen, I ordered Kimchi Fried Rice. I honestly thought there won't be a lot of meat in it, but there's a good portion of bacon and mushroom that it's so filling. I also got the Soy Chicken. Love Love Special Roll Crabmeat, cucumber, avocado, salmon, tobiko, and fruit sauce Chicken Katsu served with salad and steam rice. I am going through their list of Special Rolls, and we ordered the Love Love Roll today. The Awesome Roll is still the best one so far. After that, hubby ordered what has become his "usual" order: Chicken Katsu. I can't wa

Beat the Heat at Fifth Avenue Cinemas

We have no plans to go to the cinema as soon as we are doing even though we used to see at least one movie a month. However, the heatwave is getting ridiculous. Hubby and I grew up in the Philippines, where this weather is expected and quite usual during the summer. But there, if you're middle class or higher, you have air conditioning in your homes - here we don't. Since the heatwave will end tomorrow, investing in an AC seems unreasonable because we live in a 500 sq feet apartment with minimal storage. To manage the heat, we end up watching F9 The Fast Saga (I have not seen ANY of the Fast and the Furious movies) just for the AC (and for the popcorn). It's the longest movie showing at Cineplex - 2 hours and 23 minutes. From 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM, the temperature was more than 36℃! So, after work (we work from home), we took an Uber to Fifth Avenue Cinemas. Thankfully, they allowed us to enter 30 minutes before our film. I miss the Cineplex popcorn! I got popcorn and drinks,

4-Course Summer Gourmet Picnic at VanDusen Botanical Gardens REVIEW

Happy Sunday! We're in the middle of the heatwave in British Columbia. Still, when we booked the 4-Course Summer Gourmet Picnic at VanDusen Botanical Gardens organized by Truffle Fine Foods, we didn't know there's going to be a heatwave. 4-Course Summer Gourmet Picnic at VanDusen Botanical Gardens organized by Truffle Fine Foods The Experience Our reservation for two is at ten in the morning. We arrived just in time at Gate 3 (37th Avenue and Hudson), the designated entrance. There's a person who will ask for your name, ask you to register and point you in the general direction on where to go. Gate 3 Truffles Find Foods Summer Gourmet Picnic at VanDusen Botanical Gardens sign. We walked where the signs lead us and end up at this picnic area. It was hot. Thankfully, there are umbrellas on top of each picnic table, and there is some breeze. Picnic Area Our server walked to our table and asked us if we had any drink orders or wanted to get started. We told him that we alre

Lunch at Lin Chinese Cuisine

My mom wanted Chinese food ever since her birthday a week ago, so today, we had lunch at Lin Chinese Cuisine after doing groceries. Tan Tan noodle soup with minced meat - one of my favourite dishes Shanghai-style Chow Mein Xiao Long Bao (Shanghai juicy pork dumplings) - MUST TRY! Best one in Vancouver (that I've tried, at least) Pan-fried pork buns Pan-fried cake with marinated beef I am glad to eat here again! I think this is the first time since last Christmas. Please continue to support small, local businesses if you have the means to do so.

Breakfast at Shine Café

It's my mom's 60th birthday, and it's Father's Day weekend; that's why my siblings and I planned a long weekend (3 days, 2 nights) trip to Victoria, BC. It's our parents' first time travelling outside of Metro Vancouver since migrating to Canada, so this is an important trip for them. It's also my first time in Victoria, BC, so yay! Happy Sunday! It's our last day in Victoria, BC. The trip felt long and short at the same time. I know, it doesn't make sense. 😂 We started the day by visiting St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Cathedral. Originally, I planned to have breakfast at the famous JAM Cafe. However, it's so far from where we were, and I just don't have the energy to walk even such a short distance. I opened one of my favourite apps, Foursquare, to search for nearby breakfast spots with a high rating. That's how I found Shine Café.  It's also a bonus that they got featured in the Food Network show, You Gotta Eat Here. Full Bre

Unplanned dinner at 10 Acres Commons Restaurant

It's my mom's 60th birthday, and it's Father's Day weekend; that's why my siblings and I planned a long weekend (3 days, 2 nights) trip to Victoria, BC. It's our parents' first time travelling outside of Metro Vancouver since migrating to Canada, so this is an important trip for them. It's also my first time in Victoria, BC, so yay! I plan my vacation (specifically the food aspect) with research and reviews. I do my best to find the best places to eat in every city I go to unless it's a sudden unplanned trip. Dinner at 10 Acres Commons Restaurant is not part of the plan. I was planning to go to Big Wheel Burger at Cook Street near Beacon Hill for dinner tonight. Unfortunately, we had to walk the opposite way going back to our hotel. My younger sister is craving steak while I am still feeling full from lunch, so we ate at the closest possible restaurant, and that's 10 Acres Commons Restaurant. Since I did no prior research and their menu during th
