Blue Canoe Waterfront in Steveston, Richmond is always one of my go to places for a beer, a view, and a casual lunch. Service here is spotty – sometimes prompt, sometimes not so good. The food is decent and fair despite what the […]
Jennifer Bell and her Bells Bake Shop in Steveston is a cute little shop full of kids furniture and a box full of toys. The decor is a bit miss-matched and lemonade colored walls. Everyone time I’ve passed by this bakery I’ve always […]
I wanted to come to Hog Shack Cook House Richmond for a while now. I pass this place by on multiple occasions when I head to Blue Canoe and Timothy’s in Steveston, Richmond. Their patio/open space is quite large for you to enjoy some full on sunshine! But something would always steer me away…. Perhaps this is because I don’t usually see a crowd. Early warning signs?
Finally I came here with some old UBC friends to catch up on life. It was 7pm and we were starving. Hog Shack Cook House Richmond was quite for a Thursday night and we were quickly seated, it took at least 15 mins before we got some water.
We shared between ourselves. There was no way I would be able to own up to a whole entrée myself. We waited a long time before any food came… The food was alright, regular, mediocre, nothing worth waiting for so long… 30-40 mins later…
PULLED PORK PANCAKES $13: After having an orgasmic experience at Red Wagon, I often wondered who could replicate the same fantasy, if not better it. I wanted Hog Shack to wow me, salivate me and charm its way into my stomach. But the 3 Savoury corn and scallion pancakes, served with Bourbon bacon maple syrup didn’t do the trick. The pancakes weren’t as fluffy or buttery as I imagined. Although the pulled pork was soft and delicious it needed more seasoning. For now, I will remain monogamous to Red Wagon.
CHILI CHEESE FRIES $9: A meal on its own. The double fried fries topped with their house chili, diced onions, cheese and jalepeno peppers.
HOG SHACK ST. LOUIS STYLE SIDE RIBS 1/2 rack: $17 / Full: $24: Pork side ribs, which is meatier than the back ribs. The meat did not fall of the bones but it was pretty tasty. We ordered yam fries and sautéed veggies as our sides. The medley of zucchinis, button mushrooms, carrots were soft, juicy and seasoned.
We could not finish everything and we were on a protein – carb overload. We waited again (for a good while) to pay. I’m in no hurry to return to this place. Was it just us or did you have similar experiences here?

What’s not to love about a great open patio space located on the pier next to Fisherman’s Wharf in Steveston. This long stretched patio space overlooks the marina and river traffic! We were looking for a great place to chill while catching some rays after […]
When was the last time you went to Steveston? What was the purpose of the visit? There are many reasons to why tourists and locals go. I personally go for a nostalgic escape. Sometimes I needed to get away from the concrete jungle that surrounds […]
It could be raining or even snowing, but when it comes to frozen treats it is summer year round! One of the local gems of Steveston Village, Richmond is Timothy’s Frozen Yogurt. This iconic shop is located right next to the fishermen wharf that attracts both locals and tourist year round. They are famous for their fresh fruit yogurt, delicious homemade waffle cones. Of course, like any great dessert place they also serve gelato ice cream, sorbet and coffee. The interior is cute and has a bit of a retro vibe with a couple small high-top tables.
My all time favourite is their mango and mixed berries – sweet and tangy yet deliciously sinful. The texture is rich and creamy – sometimes I forget it is a frozen yogurt! Do yourself a favour – please enjoy your frozen treat(s) with a waffle cone, even if you are scared it might melt. You won’t be disappointed.
Now that you’ve powered up, don’t forget to enjoy the beautiful scenary, shipyards, the Old Cannery Museum and do some shopping at the local boutiques or rent a bike to work off the calories! BTW, this place is Cash Only.
