Sushi S

Yet another sushi post? Yeup. I’ve heard of Sushi S for a while but Grayson and I finally decided to go one day because well, we basically ate at every Japanese restaurant in central Burnaby already and this happened to be ONE of the rare ones we hadn’t been to

Laksa King

Laksa King is one of the hole in the wall restaurants you can find along East Hastings. And I mean it when I say hole in the wall because unless you knew it was there you’d miss it because it has a small store front and you wouldn’t expect to see an 80’s diner on… Read More »

Hakone sushi

I haven’t eaten sushi for so long that I’m already salivating as I’m writing this post. Japanese food is something I can never get enough of. You know that ONE food that you always crave? Yeah that’s what Japanese food does to me. You know what I mean?

Oatmeal cranberry walnut cookies (vegan)

These chewy cranberry walnut oatmeal cookies are perfect for breakfast. They’re chewy, comforting and give you a healthy dose of healthy fats and fiber to keep you full They are perfect on their own or with a cup of milk to moisten them up.

Sushi Loku revisited

My favorite thing to get at Sushi Loku is one of my favorite Japanese restaurants and I wish I lived closer to it because I’d go everyday! Or maybe it’s a good thing that it’s a little further…in that case then hehe.

Coconut banana loaf (gluten free)

Gluten free baking doesn’t have to be difficult. This coconut banana loaf only uses 3 ingredients and is naturally sweetened! What’s not to love?

Little Miss Saigon

A new Vietnamese restaurant opened up across from Metrotown a few months back and I finally got around to trying it out. It was actually kind of nice to see a Vietnamese place around this area since there really isn’t any around this area. I didn’t really know what to expect when I walked in… Read More »

Jong ga again

Ahhh, back again. One of my favorite Korean places in Burquitlam….Jong Ga! Ohhh banchan. Seriously I can’t get enough of banchan and often ask for seconds and thirds of the stuff! Can’t go wrong with kimchi and seaweed ;P

Cinnamon pull-apart bread (vegan)

Cinnamony, carmelly, gooey and oh so delicious. This cinnamon pull-apart bread is so addictingly delicious that the cinnamon bun should watch out because seriously, I swear this is going to take over!

Chewy junior again

I have always tried to make my own Brazilian cheese breads because I adore the chewy texture of them but have always failed miserably at it. So whenever I’m craving something chewy and textured, I find myself heading off to chewy junior for one of their unique buns!

Blueberry cream cheese rolls

I swear something magical happens when you add cream cheese to something. It’s like adding even more goodness on something that’s already amazing as is. So you can only imagine how amazing these fluffy blueberry cream cheese rolls tasted when they came out of the oven! They were like having portable blueberry bagels topped with… Read More »

Skinny banana bread

This banana loaf is perfect for those who are health conscious. It’s full of healthy ingredients and lightly sweetened with maple syrup. It’s equally delicious served warm or at room temperature and even better when topped with nut butter.

Matcha mochi waffles

These sticky, glutinous Matcha mochi waffles are a unique take on the iconic breakfast waffles. The addition of the glutinous rice flour are a funky addition to the traditional waffle batter They are crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside making them a fun and delightful treat to eat.

Congee noodle house revisited

  The go to place for our family dinners seems to be Congee noodle house these days…I’ve been here so often that I’m not really sure what I haven’t tried anymore! Here are a few dishes we got this time around… Broccoli with sauteed seafood: Dish was topped with a soy based roux. I was… Read More »

A Ri Rang Tofu House

Nom nom nom Korean is on the menu again! This time we decided to go to A Ri Rang Tofu House because we were shopping at Richmond Centre and didn’t want to go too far. I guess we could of gone to Samsoonie but we wanted to try somewhere new.

Bai bua Thai

Lil bun, mother deer and I wanted to go out for lunch after grocery shopping. We were going up along Hastings street and being that I passed by Bai Bua Thai on my commute to school practically every day, I figured that it was about time that we go by.

Fluffiest raisin bread (tangzhong)

This fluffy raisin bread has a special cookie topping to give it a unique twist. This cookie topping is typically used on Hong Kong style pineapple buns (bolo bao) or Japanese melon bread but I love it so much that I decided to try using it on a regular loaf!

Sweet potato walnut cake

Sweet potatoes do a wonderful job of keeping this cake extremely soft and moist. It’s interior is tender with a dense, moist crumb, and the crust is firmer and slightly chewy. The cake is robustly spiced and full of hearty flavor. If you like sweet potatoes, carrot cake, or pumpkin-based recipes, you’ll love this bread.
