Thomas Haas Fine Chocolates & Patisserie is a bite of heaven both in its Kitsilano and North Vancouver location. If you like Thierry and Soirette Macaron than I’m sure you will find love here. Their lunch options are equally as fantastic as their sweets. I…
49th Parallel Coffee Roasters is an independent coffee shop in Vancouver. If you aren’t a big Starbucks or Timmie’s fan and prefer supporting your local roasters, this is the place for you. The Tiffany blue mugs are fab and their coffee is strong. I even…
The Eatery, a place for fusion sushi, beer and hanging out with friends. We came here during my UBC days and still come back occasionally for the same reasons and perhaps for some nostalgia.
The place always reminds me of having a bad hallucination with really loud music. And if my date took me home to flying dragons, neon unicorns and octopus I would get the eff out of there ASAP.
My dark psychedelic, idiosyncratic trip down the rabbit hole wasn’t all bad. The Eatery has some pretty decent rolls. My favorite is their Captain Crunch roll (deep fried Cali with unagi mayo). Their platters are reasonably priced. I love the Ring of Fire 40 for 5 rolls: Captain Crunch, Viva Las Vegas, Tataki Attack, Energy Roll, Erotica Roll, Dragon Roll.
Wings are 35 cents each and the Hot Hot Hot is spicy and garlicky unlike your typical tobacco glazed one way suicide.
What disappoints me most is their lack of service or the fact my waitress was suppose to bring me change for $5 and instead a comes back with $2.75 and asks if this is ok because she doesn’t have enough on her (otherwise she would have to ask the other servers. God forbids. *Gasp*). Sorry Honey! Tips are to be earned not shortchanged.

Dark Table Vancouver. Enter into a room of darkness. You are led from the lit waiting area into utter darkness. Your spidey senses are tingling. You have no concept of space, distance or how many people are in there. Since your vision is…
Gone are the days of Refuel’s Buttermilk Fried Chicken and bone marrow. Before I even went around to write about Refuel, the space has been taken over by Fable Kitchen for almost a year (since March 2011). I better not procrastinate any longer. Before Chef Trevor Bird from…
Located inside the French Cultural Center, Salade de Fruits can be easily missed. But those fond of French cuisine and a casual bistro to dine in won’t pass up this opportunity. In fact, you will probably need to fight for elbow space with their loyal clienteles. Reservations highly recommended. The red bricks, high ceilings and even the Adventures of Tin Tin is warm and inviting. The restaurant itself, is really small in fact. Compared to Pied-â-Terre, Salade de Fruits, this casual setting is nothing less of a good meal. Owners Antoine Bonard and Balendran Rameshan runs the front end greeting customers with friendly services and a sense of humor.
On the board, daily specials and Table d’Hote menu starting at 28. Comes with starter salad and finishes with a creme brulee.
Starter Salad: Grilled prawn skewers on a bed of spring greens and dressed with balsamic vinaigrette. It pleases the eye to see a generous size and bouncy shellfish. What a great way to start.
Escargot: We ordered a side of garlic butter escargot. The little critters were juicy, tender, and bouncy with savory flavours of garlic. The most traditional French appetizer where all we wanted to do was to soak in our baguette. I’m so glad it is not the mouthful of oil at Les Faux Bourgeois.
Duo Poisson: Salmon and a lobster tail severed with beets and winter greens. A creamy lobster butter sauce flavored with some herbs. Simple but very moist and cooked right.
Poulet Forestier: Winter greens, beets and tomatoes, peppers and olives dress this poulet. Le Poulet was graciously tender and well seasoned.
Creme Brulee: To finish, a creamy custard dusted with sugar greeted us. Everything was just right – egg yolks, sugar, cream and vanilla extract. simple. decadent.

What is the best way to appreciate olive oil? The best ways to appreciate fresh olive oils is to taste them side by side with other olive oils. The richness, dense flavours can now be compared with others immediately. No longer will I have to…
