Wendy’s Chicken Sandwich

In my continuing research into chicken sandwiches, I decided to try out the Wendy’s chicken sandwich. It didn’t hurt that a page of coupons recently arrived at my house for Wendy’s burgers, wraps, salads, and sandwiches! The Wendy’s coupons have a “2-can-dine-for $13.99” deal for two spicy, grilled or homestyle chicken sandwich combos. We oped […]

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 […]

Duffin’s Donuts; Good Times

And then they brought in the carved ham […]

This time I followed up on Beyond the Rhetoric – my fellow foodie’s recommendation and stopped at Ba Lé on Main Street just south of Hastings Street. Ba Lé is a simple affair. Vietnamese sandwiches done quickly. You walk up to the counter, tell the […]

Noodle Soup with Soft Poached Egg

Today’s high school cafeteria lunch was a bowl of noodles in a sweet and savoury broth. The spiralized carrots and radish added a nice little crunch to the soup while the steamed spinach created a little bed for the beautiful soft poached egg.  While the soup was delicious, it didn’t fill me up completely so […]

Chachi’s Sandwich Shop

I was in Metrotown for a very late lunch this afternoon and I decided to try out a sandwich place I recently heard about – Chachi’s in the Metrotown foodcourt. The sandwich was good. Just good. Nice flavour with hints of jalapeno and tender enough meat. Yep, it was a good sandwich. But for $11, […]

Siegel’s Bagels and Lucky’s Doughnuts

Near the end of the summer we went to see a matinee performance of The Merry Wives of Windsor at Bard on the Beach. Luckily we arrived for the show earlier than necessary so we wandered back up to Siegel’s Bagels on the corner of Cornwall and Cypress to grab a bite of lunch. Although […]
