Where to get Buko Pie in Vancouver?

I am craving for Filipino buko pie, but I don't know where's the best place to get one that will deliver to our home. I asked the Facebook group I belong to and below are their suggestions: Vancouver Restaurants with Buko Pie Kumare Restaurant and Bakery - They have a branch in Richmond, Delta, and Vancouver. Hapag Ihaw Ihaw Filipino Grill - Two people, recommended the buko pie from Hapag. They're located in Victoria Drive, Vancouver. Aling Mary's - They're located in Main Street, Vancouver, and I have ordered a buko pie from them in the past, but I know they don't deliver. Home-Based Online Vendor with Buko Pie Pinay Bakes - Facebook page - Two people recommended their buko pie. Ruby Lyn Dacanay - She's the first one to send me a private message and pictures of the buko pie, and it looks great. Do you know of other places in Vancouver that serve buko pie? Leave a comment

Lunch delivery from Donair Pro

Happy Friday! Hubby had a company-paid lunch. I ordered lunch for myself too. Donair Pro has replaced Donair Spot (blog post here and here ) in 403 West Broadway. The falafel was delicious. I requested meat, but they forgot. Falafel Platter - Falafel platter served with basmati rice, tabooli, hummus, pita bread, tzatziki, garlic, and mild hot sauce. I wonder what happened to the previous owner of Donair Spot. I went there twice, and he's such a nice, funny man. Happy Friday! Kain Tayo!

Dream Donuts 2021 from Tim Hortons

Happy Thursday! It's also National Lego Day! I ordered a "4 Privet Drive" Harry Potter Lego Set and got two free items. Unfortunately, FedEx didn't ring our doorbell or gave us a call when it tried to deliver it to our place, so we had to pick it up at the closest FedEx pickup point. Since it's National Lego Day, we decided to pick it up today. We also decided to grab donuts from Tim Hortons before heading home. Hubby requested that I get any limited edition donuts that they have. Looking at the menu, they're promoting the "Dream Donuts," and I got both Chocolate Hazelnut Éclair Dream and Sea Salted Caramel Dream. Chocolate Hazelnut Éclair Dream I enjoyed both donuts. It's surprisingly not stale. It's soft, and the filling inside the Éclair is delicious. I am willing to get it again. Sea Salted Caramel Dream The Sea Salted Caramel Dream is good, but not as delicious as the eclair. At least, it wasn't stale like the Dream Donuts from last

Dinner delivery from Subway

We watched Touch Your Heart Korean series, and they kept eating at Subway. 🥪 Because of the series and because Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills both lost their games today, I need to stress eat, so we ordered from Subway. Subway Hubby ordered a 6" Chicken and Bacon Ranch Sub Melt Combo with two White Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies and  Brisk® Lemon Iced Tea. I picked Chicken Caesar Large Wrap with Savory Caesar sauce. I prefer the Chipotle Steak & Guac Wrap last time . I hope you had a happy and restful Sunday.

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 Papa John's Pizza while watching NFL Divisional Round

Happy Saturday! It's NFL Divisional Round Weekend and Pokemon GO Community Day, which has no relation to why we ordered pizza. 😆 For lunch, we ordered from Papa John's for the first time. It's actually my first time trying Papa John's Pizza ever. Small Ultimate Meats Pizza 👌 Small Garden Fresh Pizza 👌 It's my first time trying Papa John's Pizza, and I still prefer Pizza Hut. However, I love their dough. Though the pizza doesn't have enough sauce. My youngest sister described it perfectly that a great pizza needs to have the right dough, cheese, and sauce ratio. This one doesn't have that. 7-Cheese Stuffed Cheesesticks ❤ The 7-Cheese Stuffed Cheesesticks are my favourite thing we got so far. It's cheesy and gooey on the inside and crunchy on the outside. Jalapeno Popper Rolls 👍 The Jalapeno Popper Rolls is obviously spicy. I think the one from Pizza Pizza is better because that one is cheesy and spicy. This one is just spicy. Papa's Chicken Po

Lunch delivery from KamayKainan

Happy Friday! For lunch today, I had Filipino food delivered from KamayKainan Facebook page . I ordered three things: Kare-Kare, lumpiang shanghai, and pancit palabok. I made a terrible mistake and gave the wrong address. Instead of our street, I gave the closest cross street. Big facepalm. They're nice enough to deliver it still to our house. This is our order from Kamay Kainan Facebook page in Metro Vancouver Kare-Kare Creamy peanut butter stew with shrimp paste (bagoong) is so delicious with rice. Their spicy bagoong is amazing. This is the kare-kare with most meat and vegetable I have tried. There's not a lot of sauce (compared to Tasty Pinoy BBQ Skewers at iba pa and Cooking Ng Ina (putaheng Pinoy) , but the amount of meat and vegetable more than compensate for it. I love how soft the beef is.  

Popcorn from Cineplex while enjoying NFL Wild Card Round

Before the pandemic, we would go to the movies at least once a month. I love the popcorn and snacks, so today we finally ordered some to enjoy while watching the NFL Wild Card Round games. Popcorn from Cineplex Combo for two (large Cineplex popcorn, two large drinks, and Kit Kat Minis) Deliciousness that I can enjoy at home Shareable Sampler (Salted Pretzel Bites with Nacho Cheese Dip, Mac & Cheese Wedges, and Tasti Tater Snacks) I highly recommend the sharable sampler, except maybe the tater tots. I would love more mac and cheese wedges.
