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 […]
I had heard great things about Wild Thyme, the New Westminster restaurant that serves Lebanese food so this week for a lunch meeting a colleague and I popped in to give Wild Thyme on 12th Street in New Westminster a try. Wow. No wonder there is such a buzz about this place! Incredible flavours. We […]
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 […]
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 […]
A beautiful lunch today from the school cafeteria; a trio of sweet and spicy meatballs on a nest of rice noodles. The side dish of spiralized carrots added a nice little freshness to the lunch plate.

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 […]

I was in New West and I had a strong craving for sushi and I wanted to try something new rather than just go to my usual sushi places. And that’s how I ended up discovering the cute little Japanese owned and operated Sushi Koharu. The interior is decorated in a cute style. The single […]
I managed to get away to Mega Sushi in Coquitlam’s Austin Station for a late lunch today. I chose to keep it simple by ordering a salmon and tuna sashimi combo. Nicely cut sashimi. The tuna was buttery and tender. The salmon was also nice. Mega Sushi is located in the Austin Station located at […]
A super quick lunch today at Gem Sushi in Coquitlam’s Como Lake Village shopping strip. I had the yam roll with a California roll and one of the tiny tuna rolls. It was okay. Not bad, not great.
