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. […]

On the Road

Austin Texas and on to the Houston Space Center

Our third and final day in Texas was spent in Austin and Houston, Texas. Our stops included a cruise along the Colorado River where we go to experience the emergence of literally millions of bats, lunch at June’s Restaurant up in SoCo, and a tour of the Houston Space Center. This was a great way […]

A Weekend of Work, Fun, and Food

A good weekend of work, fun, and food. The first lunch on Saturday was in a tiny hole-in-the-wall place near the Executive Plaza Hotel on North Road. Tiny place that I didn’t catch the name of. Very nicely cut sashimi. Finally, I’ve got the outdoor grill up and running again! The kids wanted smokies so […]

Taps and Tacos

One of my grandfather’s more “edgy” sayings was, “if that’s lunch, I’ve had it!” When I was a kid, I’d chuckle at his double entendre. Now I use it! Thanks to the great staff at Port Moody’s Taps and Tacos for a late lunch. Please follow and like us:

Duffin’s Donuts; Good Times

Do you know of a restaurant or two or three that you have always wanted to try but have just never managed to make it happen? I’ve got a couple, but after this weekend, one less. This weekend I crossed one of my “I really need to try that place” restaurants after visiting Duffin’s Donuts […]

New Westminster’s Wild Thyme

Wow. No wonder there is such a buzz about this place! Incredible flavours. We […]

Just Some Hot Lunches

A few pictures from some of the lunches I enjoyed this past summer. First, a bowl of ramen from Kamamarui on Royal Oak Ave in Burnaby. Good. Not the flavour punch to the taste buds that I was hoping for. Next up, a lunch platter at Dunn’s Famous downtown Vancouver. The fries at Dunn’s Famous […]

Lunch; Steak and Potatoes

Good old lunch of steak and potatoes with a little sautéed broccolini to make it even more healthy. The potatoes are fingerlings. Steamed. Best eaten dipped in a creamy dip. The broccolini is cooked by adding it to a large pan that is already hot. Let it cook until it gets dark green and then […]

Lunch at New West’s Rivermarket

Last week I was in New Westminster so I took the opportunity to stop at the Rivermarket (formerly the New West Quay) for lunch. To begin I had the Free Bird Chicken Shack Banh Mi – a Vietnamese sub sandwich. An awesome combination of pickled veggies, fresh cilantro, and that succulent roast chicken all inside […]
