I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Amy Ruth’s Chicken & Waffles joint while in New York. The service was exceptionally friendly and the food delivered on it’s promise of southern down home comfort. My only regret was not getting a chance to eat there again.
Living only 1.5 blocks away from David Chang’s Momofuku Noodle Bar made it too irresistible to not try. It was good in that the execution was spot on. Their operation is a well oiled machine. All of the kitchen staff know what needs to be done and how to execute in an efficient way. And that [...]
Yes that’s right. The American Natural History Museum & hot dogs. One was enlightening and the other was uplifting. I kid you not. The Grey’s Papaya frankfurters were like an oasis in a barren desert of hunger. This also marks the first time I’ve ever had to use an ISO setting higher than 3200. Scrolling [...]
Harvest Community Foods is part organic grocery, part diner that not only serves the communities of Chinatown and Strathcona, but can thank interested residents for their business model as well. Born from a truly innovative idea, the owners of the commercial unit put the question of what kind of business the space should contain out [...]
Legendary Noodle is a noodle house that has caught my attention on more than one occasion in passing while making my way up and/or down Denman Street. The large and succinct signage expresses a couple of things that together would make a great meal. Being in the area on a somewhat dreary day, I took [...]
Mahony and Sons Public House Burrard Landing. After working a casually close knit family & close friends half day wedding with Tomasz Wagner in the summer the two of us were starved and looking for some patio food to enjoy in the comfortable summer weather. Joined by Jessie Cheng, we made our way over to [...]
Six Acres. Looking to try a new place, a group of friends and I went with a recommendation for Six Acres. Like the evening air, we went in a bit cold (literally and figuratively) not knowing exactly what to expect, but between the welcoming reservation phone call (which we placed only an hour before wanting [...]
FINALLY (the word is emblazoned in capitalized lettering for emphasis) getting around to Save on Meats, I had the pleasure of enjoying a lunch with Irv (@IrvLau). I actually work within walking distance of restaurant/butcher shop and I have been meaning to go since the grand return of the iconic Downtown Eastside diner (hence the [...]
La Casita. Having been introduced to this place awhile back, I had a decidedly strong craving more recently for some Mexican food. Remembering that the platters were pretty sizable, I thought La Casita would do a great job satiating my hunger.
To accommodate as many people as possible, two photo walk gatherings were organized in quick succession. Rounding out a smaller group on the second day we again hit the streets of downtown Vancouver after the sun had gone down (with drier if perhaps colder weather). In attendance this evening were: Vince Chow (of www.vincechow.ca), Cicy [...]
