a little bit about travel, a little bit about food, a lot of everything in between; as seen, tasted and experienced by different points of view..

Vancouver

Poke & Co

Poke & Co

My new fave poke place is nestled inside the Lonsdale Quay market, very accessible and convenient from the Seabus terminal. Poke & Co, originally from California, opened in December 2017 and has been a hit since then. Just like every other poke place, ordering here […]

Ban Dao Pearl Restaurant

Ban Dao Pearl Restaurant

I’ve always liked the Marine Gateway complex because it has (almost) everything I want in one place. If I can afford the condos here then I would probably move into this neighbourhood haha I don’t remember when I first tried out the Ban Dao restaurant […]

Bistro Sakana

Bistro Sakana

An underrated Yaletown gem. Sushi places in Vancouver is a dime a dozen, I seriously ate more sushi in Van city than in Japan. So in a city of raw fish on rice, it’s hard to find one that stands out, enter Bistro Sakana. I […]

Captain’s Boil

Captain’s Boil

The test of a good restaurant is if it is consistent in pushing out good dishes and if it improves in the stuff they need to work on based on customer reviews or well just based on their experience. I’ve been to Captain’s Boil five […]

​Japadog

​Japadog

a Japanese street food take on the usual hotdog.I’m not really much of a hotdog sandwich fan, I mean I like hotdogs on a stick but the bun is a killer for me, I’m not a bread person so I usually discard this part, it […]

GyudonYa

GyudonYa

A Yoshinoya alternative   I’ve always been a fan of Yoshinoya from when I first tried it in Manila, to when it became a comfort food when I was working in Tokyo, and then nostalgic pit stops in California, so imagine my disappointment when I […]

The Holy Crab

The Holy Crab

Louisiana inspired seafood boil I’ve been waiting for the opening of this restaurant since winter last year, mostly because I wanted to try the lobster roll! We visited this place a couple of times and as much as I like their lobster rolls, there’s a […]

Tacofino

Tacofino

who doesn’t love fish tacos?Tacofino is another one of those accidental finds that we discovered while waiting for dinner reservation for yet another restaurant. This time we were planning on trying Pidgin at Carrall Street and on the way there we saw this Gastown gem. […]

Red Fish Blue Fish

Red Fish Blue Fish

arguably the best fish and chips in the island Sitting on wooden stools by the harbour and watching kayaks and seagulls while devouring your crispy fish and chips is a quintessential Victoria scene that is similar to drinking ice cold beer on a patio on […]

Sushi Bar Maumi

Sushi Bar Maumi

Jiro wannabe Ever since I watched Jiro dreams of sushi, I’ve always wanted to try that authentic and intimate sushi experience. Short of flying to Tokyo and spending thousands of yen, Maumi is just that place in Vancouver.  This sushi bar is a small place […]

Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh

aka the restaurant that fried chicken wings built? I’m not really a fried chicken wing connoisseur nor do I like fried food in general but when I heard about this place, I felt like I had to give it a visit.  Phnom Penh sits right […]

Poké Guy

Poké Guy

So, what’s your favourite Poké? This Hawaiian marinated raw fish dish on a bed of rice with tons of add ons has been invading Van City by storm.  Like most poké places, this shop takes you to an assembly line of ingredients where you first […]
