Oyama sushi (coquitlam)

The sushi cravings are so real right now that I’ve been away for two months! I have been eating Japanese food here but it’s always been teishoku style instead of sushi since the sushi here is totally not good. Well to be honest I’ve never tried it so I can’t say for sure if it’s… Read More »

Thai cafe

Mother deer didn’t want to cook one evening because we were out and didn’t get home until around dinner time so we decided to just go out for dinner. We ended up going to Thai Cafe because we wanted Thai food but we already tried Chad Thai a little further down Hastings a while back… Read More »

Ki Sushi

After a nice relaxing walk along the Quay, we decided to grab some Japanese food at Ki Sushi which is right around the corner from New Westminister skytrain station.

Must eats in Taiwan (part 2)

So, as I have mentioned, I have recently moved to Taiwan for work and goodness the food culture here is different and I have made a complete 180 on what I’ve been eating!

Haroo

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 »

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 »
