四季 Grand Seasons Chinese Restaurant is a humble diner in Coquitlam. It is located just across from the Burquitlam SkyTrain station at 555 Clarke Road. Our friends introduced this place to us after we were complaining about eating at the same restaurants in Coquitlam Tri-Cities […]
We finally decided to try HAAN Korean BBQ in Coquitlam after an intense craving for barbecue meat! We were not disappointed. The restaurant is clean and service is friendly. I like the interior. It also helped that it was well ventilated and you don’t leave […]
Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks is a local craft beer brewery in Richmond behind Ironwood in Steveston. This craft brewery is a place for big geeks, pop culture, comics and anime. You will recognize it by the names of the draft, the retro video games console, etc. This feels like a hang out place – a lounge if you will.
The tasting room has a series of beers on tap on rotation: Destiny IPA, The Last Strawberry, The Last Mango, Four Winds Pilsner, Kiwami Plum Sour, Hikari, REI Boysenberry Sour, Moody Ales Affable IPA.
Each sleeve is $6 and a flight of four is $7. A taster is $2 each.
My favorite was the Kiwami Plum Sour and the REI Boysenberry Sour (above). It is refreshing and sweet. I love a good sour gose!
We also bought home The Last Strawberry Wit 4.9% at 8IBU. It is brewed with fresh strawberries. Perfect patio beer that is easy to drink!
Order some snacks to go with your beer. Fuggles and Warlocks offers Calbee chips, pepperoni, sandwiches, etc.

Taps and Tacos is a new Mexican restaurant in Port Moody. It is located on 91 Moody Street and Saint Johns Street – diagonally across from Pizzeria Spacca Napoli and just up the street from Brewery Row (Yellow Dog Brewing Co, Twin Sails Brewing, The Parkside Brewery, Moody Ales). I’ve been looking forward to a good tacos joint in the Tri-Cities for a long time.
The interior of Taps and Tacos is clean, bring and has a high ceiling with a mezzanine second floor for extra seating. Menu focus is tacos (of course).
It also offers a good variety of local craft beers on tap and well as bottles: Moody Ales (exclusive brew “It’s About Lime” Kölsch), Twin Sails, Yellow Dog, Dageraad, Steel & Oak, Strathcona, Parkside, Whistler Brewing and Strange Fellows. If you fancy cocktails and wine, they’ve got a good wine list also.
There is a good selection of tacos with eight flavours to choose from. $6 each. My favourite is their Coffee Spiced Pork and also the Korean Pork.
Coffee Spiced Pork: gelderman farms pork, habanero apple chutney, pickled onion, crispy yam. Spice level 3/3)
Mama’s Beef: Ground beef, lettuce, mozza, charred pico de gallo, crema, crispy tortilla strips. Spice level (2/3)
Mojito Whitefish: tropical salsa, cucumber lettuce, mint and lime. This is a subtle tasting taco.
Tequila Lime Chicken: Local free run chicken, mexican tapenade, spiced almonds, cream, arugula, pea shoots. Spice level (1/3)
Korean Pork: gelderman farms pork, gochujang BBQ sauce, red cabbage slaw, cucumber, sesame seeds. Spice level (1/3).
We’re looking forward to our next visit here again. Too bad this place is not very baby friendly with loud music. I guess we will just need to find a babysitter and have a date night (day) here instead!
Next time I will need to try the Cajun Tofu Tacos with black bean corn salsa, micro greens, pico de gallo, vegan crema and spiced almonds.
What will you order here? Let me know in the comments below!

Black Milk Water Coffee Roasters is a roomy cafe on North Road between Burnaby and Coquitlam. It is located on the lower floor of the complex next to Hannam Supermarket. Now that I’m finally on Maternity Leave, I’m so happy that I can visit these coffee shops mid-day (before noon) when I can still enjoy a cup of coffee!
They offer coffee brewed with Timbertrain Coffee beans, duo cup coffees (you can have two different flavored iced coffees or milk teas, shaved ice, affogato and my favorite Nitro cold brewed coffee.
The interior of the cafe art focused with industrial cement, steel and wood. There is free WiFi, perfect if you need to catch up on some work or to scroll throw miles on Instagram!
Matcha Affogato: Scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with a shot of matcha. You can also option for a coffee based espresso shot!
Nitro Cold Brewed Coffee: A nice, refreshing small batch cold brew. Smooth taste without the bitterness. A good summer pick me up!

Sal Y Limon is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Vancouver. Located on the corner between Kingsway and Fraser – across from Osteria Savio Volpe and Matchstick Coffee Roasters. This unassuming restaurant offers hearty burritos, tortas, tacos, quesadillas, huaraches, taquitos and more.
Aside from the constant line up, this Mexican cantina is spacious. It is lively, welcoming and casual. There is even a kid play area for your littles.
To enhance your experience, there is a self serve sauce station with a rainbow of spiciness. My favorite remains to be jalapeno, avocado, and Arbol.
A thirst quenching Jarritos Guava soda is the perfect pairing to my tacos.
Sal Y Limon Menu offers gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options also. Each taco is goes for only $2.25 or $2.75 with cheese. On the table today are Al Pastor (marinated pork with pineapple with cheese), Fish (battered, deep fried basa), Lengua (beef tongue) and Cochinita Pibil ( slow roasted spicy pork with cheese). The possibilities are endless and every time we come here, we always order something different. These 4-inch corn tortilla, comes with onions and cilantro but you can add your choice of filling.
Also on the menu are burritos, tortas, quesadillas, huaraches, taquitos and more should you prefer something more substantial.
If you’ve never been to Sal Y Limon, you are missing out. The tacos here are very tasty and I highly recommend them.
