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 […]

Starbucks Carved Ham and Swiss Sandwich

I have to admit, I have not been happy with the last few breakfast sandwiches I’ve bought from Starbucks. The bacon sandwiches have seriously under cooked and stringy bacon and the roasted ham sandwiches have had an odd chemical-like smell and taste. Not a happy Starbucks customer.

Rod’s Kitchen and Grill

Rod’s Kitchen and Grill is one of those places that I frequently drive by and think about trying but is unfortunately always closed when I am travelling through the neighbourhood. The reality is that Rod’s Kitchen and Grill is open during business hours to serve the nearby working people or Skytrain commuters. So this being […]

A Super Quick and Healthy Breakfast 

My One Pot Pasta was easy but this quick and healthy breakfast one is even easier! First, I cracked two eggs into a mug! As a side note, notice how the egg yolks are such different colours? I chopped up a small piece of cheddar cheese and less than a quarter cup of the leftovers […]

The Big 6 Restaurant For Breakfast

In my continuing research efforts of finding trustworthy breakfast joints around the Metro Vancouver area, I stopped at a Burnaby institution, the Big 6 Restaurant.    Years ago I would meet my grandfather at the Big 6 for the Trucker’s Breakfast special. Back then the special was $2.95. Now the Trucker’s Special of two eggs, […]
