Duffin’s Donuts

In honour of National Donut Day, I am reposting this one about Vancouver’s funkiest doughnut shop – Duffin’s Donuts. If I am traveling anywhere remotely close to 41st and Knight Street in Vancouver, I always make a detour to stop at the most eclectic donut shop anyone could imagine; Duffin’s Donuts. Yes, that’s a barbecue […]

McDonald’s Fish and Chips

It never fails to amaze me at what I will do for my readers. For example, three times in the last three weeks I have eaten at McDonald’s restaurants. For you. My reader.  That’s three times more in the last three weeks than in the last 20 years! My first visit back to McDonald’s was […]

McDonald’s; Seriously Chicken

To be clear – this is NOT a sponsored post; I was not invited or enticed to visit McDonald’s and I was not provided any encouragement nor incentive to write this post. I did something I have not done for many years…I went to, and I ate at a McDonald’s restaurant! My kids are always […]

Breakfast at the Fraser Park Restaurant

I went for breakfast at the Fraser Park Restaurant on Saturday morning. I have mixed feelings about it. The restaurant is well known for massive servings of food with an emphasis on meat. I overhead the guy at the table beside me say, “I prefer quality over quantity,” and well, you certainly do a lot […]

Taps and Tacos for After School Snacks

I haven’t had the energy to write anything for the last few days so instead, here are pictures of tacos from Taps and Tacos in Port Moody. Taps and Tacos has a happy “hour” special from 2 – 5pm. Their street tacos, the 4″ tacos are $2.50 each making a perfect fit for our after […]

Honey Doughnuts; Take II

I was back to North Vancouver’s Deep Cove so of course I had to stop and get six doughnuts from Honey Doughnuts – the most incredible doughnuts EVER. Today I picked up four chocolate glazed and two maple with bacon. The chocolate are excellent but my new favourite is the maple bacon. It hits the […]

Lunch at the Ovaltine Cafe

Yesterday I went to pick up a new wool vest for myself (Merry Christmas to me!) from the Filson Store in Vancouver’s Gastown and seeing as I was traveling right by it, I decided to stop for lunch at the historic/nostalgic Ovaltine Cafe. Lunch was good. The food, as usual, was tasty and nicely prepared. […]

Honey’s Doughnuts; a Deep Cove Treasure

Perhaps I am late to the game (Kate Winslett raves about Honey’s Doughnuts) but oh my goodness, I have found a doughnut shop that makes a doughnut more delicious than any other doughnut I have ever tried. Honey’s Doughnuts in the Deep Cove neighbourhood of North Vancouver. Oh. My. Gawd. Yes, Honey’s Doughnuts are better […]

Vancouver Restaurants; Gone but not Forgotten

News that the classic Vancouver institution known as The Elbow Room is closing got me thinking about a few of the Vancouver restaurants that have closed. The first one that comes to mind is the Hastings Street seafood restaurant affectionately known as The Only. Right down in the heart of the downtown Eastside, The Only […]

The Least Favourite Holiday Treats

I posted this picture on my A Dad in the Burbs Facebook Page with the question, “what holiday treat do you detest?” I was quite surprised at the response! People don’t like so many of the traditional Christmas treats! As you can probably tell from my picture, I can’t stand Turtles. I just don’t like […]
