Ube Cake from Kaye Bakes

I continue my support of Filipino businesses and entrepreneurs by ordering Ube (purple yam) cake from Kaye Bakes. Kaye Bakes for Celebration Today we're celebrating three things: my mom's birthday, my youngest sister's high school graduation, and father's day. It only fits to order some cake, and I thought a cake we can't buy from Costco would be fitting. How I ordered from Kaye Bakes? I reached out on their Facebook page Tuesday to ask if they can do a Saturday delivery or if it's too late. I also asked for prices and if they can deliver. They were able to deliver on a Saturday at Richmond. I paid via Interac-E Transfer. Ube Cake Purple yam is famous in the Philippines. The colour is unique, and it's delicious! We love Ube cake in the Philippines, and I didn't think we would be able to enjoy some here in Canada. Ube Cake from Kaye Bakes Ube Cake from Kaye Bakes You should hear the glee from my younger sister. She loves Ube cake the most among all of us

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

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 delivery from Redbeef Noodle Kitchen

Happy Saturday! I was craving fried chicken, and one of my favourite sources for juicy, boneless fried chicken is Redbeef Noodle Kitchen along 4th Avenue. This is our order from Redbeef Noodle Kitchen Chicken Cutlet Rice Pan-fried Beef Wraps My mom loved their beef wrap the last time we went there. We ordered it today and thought that the one from Peaceful Restaurant is still the best. Salt and Pepper Popcorn Chicken I love the Salt and Pepper Popcorn Chicken so much. I am so happy to ordered two servings of this and there's more pieces this time than when we ordered it previously.  Malay Sponge Cake I highly recommend this sponge cake. It's fluffy and soft. I wanted more. I can't wait to eat in the restaurant again to enjoy all this from the kitchen. Hubby ordered Tonic Beef Noodle Soup and it's the delicious. I actually prefer it than the Premium Beef Noodle Soup, but it could just be me. Enjoy your weekend!

Lunch delivery from Meet on Main

Saturday! I couldn't decide what I want for our takeout day. I asked my hubby what he wants and he said healthy food, so we ended up ordering from Meet on Main, a vegetarian/vegan restaurant. Appetizer Oyster Mushroom Kalamari I thought the batter was too salty. Otherwise, it's crispy and crunchy. Perfect vegetarian calamari. Oyster Mushroom Kalamari Beer battered and spiced oyster mushrooms, topped with pickled onions, and served with our ridiculously-good cucumber dill tzatziki. Organic Steamed Kale The cheese sauce the steamed kale came with is delicious. Definitely, the best the thing we ordered today. Organic Steamed Kale Black and white sesame seeds, scallions and house-made cashew gravy. Mains K-Town Poutine Hubby picked poutine. It was a bi

Lunch Delivery from Ramen Gojiro

We haven't had ramen in such a long time, and one of our favourite spots to get the delicious Japanese cuisine favourite is Ramen Gojiro. We love their spicy soup and crispy chicken karaage. I think they have one of the best (if not the best) chicken karaage in Vancouver ( if you know of a better place, please let me know so we could try it) . Best Chicken Karaage in Vancouver I ordered Original Chicken Karaage and Spicy Ramen with Chicken Karaage as the topping. I couldn't get enough of the crunchy and juicy boneless fried chicken. Original Karaage (house-made crispy deep-fried chicken) Spicy Ramen Below is my spicy, creamy, ramen (without the soup yet) topped with karaage. I added extra Ajitama (medium-boiled marinated egg). Spicy, rich, spicy ramen (without the soup) topped with karaage. This is the photo with the spicy, rich broth added in. Spicy Ramen topped with karaage, spicy, and with rich broth. Ramen Gojiro's signature broth with the perfect balance of pork and ch

Lunch supporting Suika

Suika is my favourite restaurant. We eat here at least once a month for lunch because that's the only time they serve my favourite Katsu Curry (they have the best Japanese curry sauce). Because of COVID-19, Suika decided to close and have only opened recently for pick-up and delivery. Today, we decided to have Suika. I did my best with presentation, but it's hard. The curry is as good, how I regret not ordering extra curry sauce like I usually do when I dine in. I can't wait for Suika to open for dine-in.
