Chicken Holic in Coquitlam 

I recently tried a funky new chicken place on Austin Ave in Coquitlam. It truly is a cultural mash-up. Chicken Holic is run by a Korean family and while there, I had a Butter Chicken Poutine. French Canadian food with an Indian twist made by a Korean. The food was truly delicious and I will […]

Last week I was in New Westminster so I took the opportunity to stop at the Rivermarket (formerly the New West Quay) for lunch.

A Visit to Hopcott Meats

After the recent outbreak of Avian flu in the Fraser Valley I started thinking a little more about how food is produced. One of the poultry barns that became infected with Avian flu housed something like 20,000 birds. That is not a farm, that is a food factory. And then the infection continued progressing through […]

A Visit to Romana Restaurant in Burnaby

One day between Christmas and New Years my father-in-law invited our family out for lunch. We settled on Romana Restaurant on East Hastings (a couple blocks east of Willingdon Ave) after I remembered a Tweet-up I attended at Romana’s before Christmas. The owners of Romana have a two year old girl…who better to understand the […]
