Crispy Cod Burger from Triple O's

Happy birthday to my brother! To celebrate, we decided to indulge in some juicy burgers at Triple O's, a Vancouver institution famous for its award-winning patties. As a self-proclaimed burger aficionado, I've meticulously documented my Triple O's adventures on this blog, and guess what? I've devoured all their beef and chicken burger offerings!

Beef Burgers Chicken Burgers

This time, I decided on the Crispy Cod Burger. Intrigued by the promise of crispy fish nestled within a toasted bun, I took the plunge. To complete this culinary adventure, I opted for my all-time favourite Triple O's side, Garlic Parmesan Fries. I played it safe with a classic iced drink for a refreshing beverage.

Two Ocean Wise crispy beer-battered Pacific cod fillets, crisp iceberg lettuce, fresh vine-ripened tomatoes, red onion, and tartar sauce with our signature pickle on top.

The Crispy Cod Burger was a revelation! The star of the show was undoubtedly the fish fillet. It boasted a crisp golden exterior, encasing a surprisingly tender and flaky interior. The subtle sweetness of the fish was beautifully complemented by the crisp iceberg lettuce, fresh vine-ripened tomatoes, and red onions. A dollop of tartar sauce added a touch of tang, while the classic Triple O's sesame seed bun held everything together perfectly.

So next time you're at Triple O's and feeling adventurous, try the Crispy Cod Burger—you won't be disappointed!

Spicy Fried Chicken from Church's Chicken

Happy Saturday evening! We didn't get HelloFresh this week, so I ordered fried chicken instead. It took me what feels like forever to decide whether to get KFC or somewhere else and, if elsewhere, where.

Fries from Church's Chicken

After checking DoorDash for chicken, it suggested so many options. In the middle of the list is Church's Chicken. They have decent gravy, so I went with them.

We got the 20-piece chicken with two large gravies and large French fries. It's a happy night. 

Reheating this will be perfect in the air fryer. Yum!

Salmon Chowder Puff Pot Pie delivered from A La Mode Pie Express in Granville Island Public Market

The workweek can be a whirlwind of endless emails, long customer phone calls, and other tasks in between, but one thing brings joy to the Thursday routine at our office - team lunch! This week's theme? The timeless and versatile delight that is pie. We decided to treat ourselves to a delectable spread from A La Mode Pie Express, and the experience was nothing short of extraordinary.

I chose the Salmon Chowder Puff Pot Pie from the extensive pie menu. It's delivered and packaged perfectly. We're impressed.

The smokiness of the salmon, the richness of the creamy broth, and the heartiness of the potatoes created a bowl of comfort and indulgence.

What truly set the Salmon Chowder Puff Pot Pie apart was the pièce de résistance—the puff pastry on top. A satisfying crunch ensued as I broke through the golden, flaky layers, revealing the velvety, steaming contents beneath. The contrast in textures, from the crisp pastry to the creamy filling, elevated the dining experience to new heights.

A Thursday team lunch centred around the pie, especially the Salmon Chowder Puff Pot Pie from A La Mode Pie Express, turned a regular workday into a memorable culinary adventure.

Mixed Chicken and Falafel Plate from Albasha Express

Happy Thursday! It's team lunch, and the theme for this week is Middle Eastern.

They say the third time is the charm, and it is true in this case. The first restaurant we tried to order cancelled. The second one never confirmed our order, so I ordered the next available restaurant in DoorDash: Albasha Express Shawarma & Falafel.

Mixed Chicken and Falafel Plate from Albasha Express

We ordered their mixed chicken and falafel plate, which is a lot of delicious food in one packed container. Crispy falafel is an excellent accompaniment to the succulent tender chicken. Everything is delicious. I am reminded why a former colleague loved this place.

Beef Biryani from Davie Dosa Company

Happy Wednesday! I am on vacation starting tomorrow, so my colleague suggested we have our team lunch today since it's for the team together, and it will be pointless if it's just her. I told her we should ask permission, but she said it's too early in Melbourne for us to ask permission from anyone.

The chosen theme for team lunch is Indian food, specifically biryani. We ordered from Davie Dosa Company, and I got the Beef Biryani. It was a generous portion. I did not want to finish it, but I had to because I wouldn't be in the office the next day to finish my leftovers.

Beef Biryani from Davie Dosa Company

The rice was flavorful and spicy. There is a generous amount of beef, albeit some is tough. I wish it was more tender.

Overall, it was a good team lunch before my vacation. I will miss team lunch next week, but I'll note it here.

Laksa from Hawker's Delight Deli

It's Thursday, which means company-paid team lunch and Malaysian cuisine is the choice of the week.

My only colleague in the office is feeling under the weather, so I recommended Laksa. I am so happy she enjoyed the perfect bowl of Laksa from Hakwer's Delight Deli.

First, the price point is impressive. We received a generous bowl of Laksa for less than $15.00! Then, it arrived still warm and packed well - no spills!

Rice noodles served in mild curry, rich in coconut milk and shrimp, garnished with tofu, puff, fish, cake, egg, shredded chicken, prawns, and sprouts.

Lastly, it was excellent, with the rice noodles soaking up the rich and creamy coconut milk-based broth. It also came with succulent chunks of chicken, plump shrimp, and tofu cubes.

For amusement, below is a list of our team lunches so far.

Week Number:

  1. Brazilian: Boteco Brasil
  2. Chicken: Nando's

9-Piece from Mary Brown's Chicken

I love fried chicken and am constantly looking for the best, usually from fast food joints. My favourite in Metro Vancouver is still from LA Chicken in Richmond, while my favourite from big chains is Church's Texas Chicken. I also have a favourite Taiwanese popcorn chicken from Redbeef Noodle Kitchen, and my favourite Japanese karaage is from Ramen Gojiro. I know my fried chicken and the city has many delicious joints.

9-Piece Bone-In Feast with half regular and half spicy Chicken from Mary Brown's Chicken

Today, we visited my parents and had Mary Brown's Chicken delivered for the first time. If you can take the heat, their spicy fried chicken is top-notch. The real winner, though, is the wedges. It's seasoned perfectly and has that crispy exterior and soft interior. Overall, it's a good place, and it's a Canadian chain, so perfect for Canada Day.

Original Burger from Triple O's

It's a beautiful Sunday! My parents are back in Canada. Yay! My mom requested a burger from BC fast-food chain Triple O's for dinner.

Original Burger from Triple O's
100% fresh Canadian beef, crisp iceberg lettuce, fresh vine-ripened tomatoes, Secret Triple "O" sauce and our signature pickle on top.

It was my first time trying the Original Burger, and it didn't disappoint. At this point, I have tried all beef burger variants (except double-double and lettuce wrap). My favourite is the Chipotle BBQ Bacon Melt.

100% fresh Canadian beef, crisp iceberg lettuce, fresh vine-ripened tomatoes, Secret Triple "O" sauce and our signature pickle on top.

For our sides, we ordered my favourite Garlic Parmesan Fries. Yummy! Although, the Sweet Potato Fries are delicious too. Lastly, how can you go wrong with milkshakes? So we got a 20oz Cookies & Cream Milkshake. It's creamy and just perfect with the salty side.

Made with premium vanilla bean ice cream from Island Farms and real Oreo cookie crumble.

Spending time with my husband, parents, and siblings fills my heart with love. I am blessed. Thanks be to God for everything!

Trying Popeyes' Ghost Pepper Chicken Sandwich

Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen never fails to impress when it comes to bold flavours and fiery sensations. In their latest limited-time offering, the Ghost Pepper Chicken Sandwich, Popeyes combines their renowned expertise in fried chicken with the intense heat of ghost peppers.

Ghost Pepper Chicken Sandwich from Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen

At the heart of Popeyes' Ghost Pepper Chicken Sandwich is a perfectly cooked, all-white meat chicken breast fillet. Marinated in an authentic blend of Louisiana seasonings, the chicken is expertly hand-battered and breaded in a buttermilk coating. The result? A symphony of textures, with the exterior boasting an irresistible crunch while the interior remains tender and juicy. Unlike some fried options, this sandwich impresses with its lack of excess oil, making each bite a delightful and satisfying experience.

Ghost Pepper Chicken Sandwich from Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen

One of the standout features of the Ghost Pepper Chicken Sandwich is the ghost pepper mayo, delivering a subtle heat that adds depth to every mouthful. While not as fiery as the Ghost Pepper Chicken Ranch Chicken Sandwich from Wendy's, Popeyes strikes a harmonious balance, allowing the heat to complement rather than overpower the overall flavour profile. Accompanied by crunchy pickles that provide a refreshing tang and contrast to the spiciness, this sandwich is a well-rounded delight that caters to a range of palates.

Overall, it's a delicious sandwich but can be enjoyed even by those with mild tolerance to spicy food.

Crispy Delight: A Review of Popeyes Flounder Fish Sandwich

Are you looking for a mouthwatering seafood experience combining crispy goodness with tender flounder fillets? Look no further than Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen and their irresistible Flounder Fish Sandwich. In this blog post, I'll share my firsthand experience of savouring this delectable sandwich and how it exceeded my expectations, even when ordered for delivery.

With my first bite, I was greeted by a delightful contrast of textures. The exterior coating of the flounder fillet boasted a satisfying crunch, perfectly complementing the tender and flavorful fish inside. Despite the sandwich being delivered, the crispy exterior remained intact, showcasing the quality and attention to detail in Popeyes' preparation.

Flounder Fish Sandwich from Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen

What impressed me the most was the way the flavours harmonized. The flounder fillet was succulent and perfectly cooked, offering a delicate and mild taste. The tartar sauce added a creamy and slightly tangy note, while the pickles provided a refreshing crunch and a hint of zing. It was a harmonious symphony of flavours that left me craving more.

One thing that sets Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen apart from other fast food chains, particularly those known for their delectable fried chicken, is their inclusion of a seafood sandwich on their menu. While many fast food establishments focus primarily on fried chicken, Popeyes' introduction of the Flounder Fish Sandwich is a pleasant surprise. It's refreshing to find a crispy and flavorful seafood offering amidst the sea of chicken sandwiches, showcasing Popeyes' commitment to offering diverse and satisfying choices for their customers.

Hot & Spicy Box Meal from KFC

Happy Saturday! It's a long weekend, and for dinner, we decided to have KFC delivered with DoorDash. So we ordered two 4-piece Hot & Spicy Box Meals from KFC.

Hot & Spicy Box Meal from KFC

We watched Crash Landing on You the past few days, and they're always showing fried chicken, and I want one. 🤣 Those product placements are so effective. 😅

Hot & Spicy Box Meal from KFC

My fried chicken craving is satisfied, but the fried chicken is not spicy. The gravy was good, though.

Poutine from KFC

It's disappointing that there are so many issues with our orders. For example, our chosen sides of one biscuit and one Original Recipe Seasoned Corn did not arrive. I also ordered a large gravy, and they forgot that too.

DoorDash did offer a refund, but it's still disappointing.

To end our food coma dinner, we ordered both KFC desserts: Chocolate Chip Cookie and KFC S'more Brownie. Go for the brownie.

Ghost Pepper Nuggets from Burger King

Happy Monday! I took today and tomorrow off from work for an extra long weekend. So for dinner, we ordered from Burger King.

It seems like the last time we ate from there was in 2020.

Ghost Pepper Nuggets

I ordered the Ghost Pepper Nuggets to see how spicy it was and was extremely disappointed. There was no heat whatsoever, but it's tender chicken. Why do I get the feeling that we received regular nuggets? 🤷‍♀️

8-piece Ghost Pepper Nuggets
Scary Hot! Our Ghost Pepper Nuggets are packing a flavourful kick, tingling with peppery spice. Tender and juicy chicken, coated in a crispy and spicy breading, perfect for dipping in any of our sauces. Feel the Ghost Pepper heat before it’s gone!

Nashville Hot Chicken Meal

There's a bit of heat from the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich, but again nothing that can hold a candle to Popeye's, Church's, or even KFC.

Nashville Hot Chicken
Grab the bold delicious flavour of our new Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich. Made with juicy, tender and crispy premium white meat chicken, seasoned with traditional Nashville Hot flavours and just the right amount of heat; topped with pickles, and creamy mayonnaise all on a potato bun.

Bacon and Cheese WHOPPER Meal

Hubby ordered the Bacon and Cheese Whopper Meal, and from the bite I took, there was a good amount of bacon and, of course, the flame-grilled burger patty.

Burger and Cheese WHOPPER Meal
The Bacon and Cheese WHOPPER sandwich is a ¼ lb of savory flame-grilled beef topped with thick-cut smoked bacon, melted cheese, ripe tomatoes, fresh lettuce, creamy mayonnaise, ketchup, crunchy pickles, and sliced onions, all on a warm, toasted, sesame seed bun. Served with your choice of medium side and medium drink.

Hershey's Sundae Pie

Yum! Perfect sweetness to end a rather disappointing meal from Burger King.

HERSHEY'S Sundae Pie
Say hello to the HERSHEY’S Sundae Pie. One part crunchy chocolate crust and one part chocolate crème filling, garnished with a delicious topping of fudge drizzle and real HERSHEY’S Chocolate Chips.

Festive Ginger Cookies and Li'l Donuts from McDonald's

Happy rainy Sunday! Hubby and I stayed home today and watched the BC Lions playoff game on TSN. Before the game started, I ordered from McDonald's.

Festive Ginger Cookie from McDonald's

I read the press release that McDonald's Canada launched their 2022 limited-time festive menu for the holiday season.

One of the items in the McCafé® festive offerings is the RMHC® Ginger Cookie.

RMHC® Ginger Cookie

Unfortunately, there's nothing festive about how it looks and tastes. Maybe I expected too much.

Double Glazed Li'l Donut and Maple Iced and Caramel Filled Donut from McCafé®

The Crème Brûlée Li’L Donut is part of the Limited Time Festive Menu, but it's not exactly new since we had it last year in October. So, instead of ordering the crème brûlée, we opted for the two remaining li'l donuts we have not tried: Double Glazed and Maple Iced and Caramel Filled.

Double Glazed Li'l Donut

Maple Iced and Caramel Filled Li'l Donut

Smarties McFlurry and Skor McFlurry

Hubby ordered the Smarties McFlurry, so I can't comment. The Skor McFlurry is good, but I'll stick to Oreo McFlurry. I think Dairy Queen's Skor Blizzard is better if you want Skor in ice cream.

McNuggets and French Fries from McDonald's

Of course, I ordered 20 pieces of Chicken McNuggets and 2 large fries.

Kale Aid and Falafel Wrap for Lunch from Jugo Juice

We're trying to eat healthier, so I ordered fresh pressed juice and wraps from Jugo Juice.

Kale Aid (Kale, red apple, spinach, celery, lemon and ginger) and Fresh Orange Juice

Chicken Avocado Wrap
Chicken, avocado, tomato, romaine lettuce, mozzarella, and spicy mayo

Falafel Wrap
Falafels, cucumber, tomato, spinach, hummus, and hose-made GOA dressing

Both wraps were delicious, and I'll be happy to order them again. The Kale Aid was good but has an unusual aftertaste which I blame the ginger or maybe the celery. It tasted like curry. 

Hubby said drinking it on its own is fine, but taking a bite of the wrap, then sipping the juice did have an unusual after-taste.

Desserts from Breka Bakery & Cafe

After dinner from Boston Pizza, we decided to order desserts and this time, I searched for a cake place from DoorDash and found Breka Bakery & Cafe. So my siblings ordered a cake each while hubby and I picked four of the six available donut flavours.

Breka Bakery & Cafe box

Salted Pecan Maple Donut, Dulce de Leche Donut,
London Fog Donut and Chocolate Hazelnut Donut

Vancouver has a lot of donut stores, and I think Breka Bakery & Cafe became my favourite. That dough is soft, chewy, and moist. It's perfect. The flavours are also on point and not overly sweet. I absolutely love it!

Caramel Macchiato Praline Crunch, Tuxedo Truffle, and
New York Cheesecake

My three siblings are raving about their cakes, especially my brother, who has good things to say about the New York Cheesecake.

After eating desserts, we continued playing Smash Bros until we were too tired and decided to go home. It's a happy day with my siblings and we can't wait to visit them again next weekend!

Lunch from Subway

After eating our breakfast from Tim Hortons, I took a nap while NFL Redzone was running in the background. Finally, I fell asleep and felt a little better, but my cramps were still wrong.

For lunch, we decided to order from Subway. Hubby had a sandwich while I went for a wrap. We also called two cookies. 😁

Caramel Pecan made with Turtles cookie and White Chip Macadamia Nut Cookie

My Southwest Steak & Avocado Signature Grilled Rice Wrap from Subway was good. The steak, avocado, vegetables, and sauce were delicious. The only downer is the rice. This is why North Americans don't like rice because Subway (and similar establishments) doesn't cook it properly. It's hard and grainy.

Southwest Steak & Avocado Signature Grilled Rice Wrap

Crispy Chicken Bacon & Peppercorn Ranch Sandwich
6" Toasted Multigrain with shredded Monterey cheddar, lettuce, spinach, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, red onions, and peppercorn ranch sauce

Hubby's Crispy Chicken Bacon & Peppercorn Ranch from Subway was delicious too, but he complains that the chicken isn't crispy.

Dinner from KFC

Happy Sunday! It was raining outside, so we stayed home all day and ordered KFC for dinner.

Dinner from Fogg n' Suds

Happy Saturday! We spent most of today at my parent's place in Richmond. For dinner, we had food delivered from Fogg n' Suds. I was already feeling food coma from munching on chips all afternoon, so I wasn't sure what I wanted to eat.

Hubby and I went for Pasta but didn't finish it. So we can have the leftovers tomorrow.

Seafood Spaghetti
Sauteed shrimp, grilled salmon in creamy Cajun sauce garnished with parmesan and parsley.

Bacon and Prawn Farfalle
Sauteed bacon and prawns in creamy alfredo sauce garnished with parmesan and parsley.

Tiramisu Cheesecake
Decadent, triple-layered tiramisu-infused cheesecake drizzled with chocolate and caramel sauce.

The dinner tonight reminded me why I don't like delivery because food from restaurants is always better at the location.

Dinner from Basil Pasta Bar

I haven't used a delivery app in two months. However, I'm experiencing dysmenorrhea today, so as much as I want to go out for dinner, staying home seems the wisest thing to do.

We ordered from Basil Pasta Bar.

Dinner from Basil Pasta Bar

I customized my pasta while hubby chose Lemon Chicken Fettuccine.

Lemon Chicken Fettuccine
Alfredo cream sauce with lemon juice, chicken, zucchini, & capers. Garnished with parmesan cheese & fresh basil

My "Build Your Own Pasta"

For my "Build Your Own Pasta," I selected Spaghetti with Pesto Cream Sauce. For protein, I went for smoked salmon and shrimp. Then, I chose all green vegetables (which should help with the pain): broccoli, spinach, peas, asparagus, and artichoke. Finally, for garnish, I decided on parsley.

It was delicious, but there's extra sauce afterwards, which we kept so I can use it with the pasta at home.

It's a happy night despite the pain. I'm so blessed to have a wonderful, caring husband.

Cinco de Mayo lunch from Loz Takos

It's the 5th year in a row that we enjoyed Mexican-inspired food at Cinco de Mayo (May 5).

  • 2018 - We had nachos, quesadilla, burrito, and churros from Sal y Limon on Kingsway Avenue.
  • 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.
  • 2021- We had nachos, quesadilla, burrito, and churros from Salsa and Agave in Yaletown delivered at our home.
We originally had planned to dine in at one of the many restaurants that serve Mexican cuisine in Vancouver. However, it was raining quite hard, and our plans kept on changing throughout the day, so we ended up looking at DoorDash and choosing Loz Takos.

We're pretty consistent with our orders, but I'm dropping quesadilla because I can make it at home.

Lunch from Loz Takos

Munchie: Nachos

The nachos were fair, and having stale chips didn't help. Though, soft chips soaked in cheese were helpful for my gums.

Tortilla Soup with Chips

This is my first time trying tortilla soup, and I am uncertain what to expect. There's a scoop of what I think is guacamole in the middle of it could be green peppers.

Asada de Res (Grilled Steak) Burrito

Asada de Res (Grilled Steak) Burrito

Hubby and I are still on a calorie-counted diet, so we're sharing the Asada de res (grilled steak) burrito. The burrito was good. The steak was a bit dry, but overall a good filling burrito.


It's pretty hard to go wrong with a churro, and I am satisfied with this one. Although, I don't know why Loz Takos calls it churrito because it's not as small as we thought it would be.

I haven't been this food coma in a long time.
