A special occasion calls for special dining, wouldn’t you agree? The weather that day started off very gloomy, but I was so happy it cleared up a bit by the evening! I learned that Mama C & Papa C came here before little ol’ me was born, so I figured why not revisit the restaurant after many years? I’ve only been here once, and it was a fairly good experience, so I was excited coming here again.

I have been dying to try this place for a while now, because a lot of people have been saying how the sandwiches/subs here are yummy AND cheap! Now who can resist that? This corner restaurant is located in an area where parking is incredibly hard to find, so I recommend public transit or walking here. Luckily, this is in central Richmond, so there are plenty of bus stops because of the local mall located across the street.
It is a good thing I went with my friend, because otherwise, I wouldn’t have known what to do in terms of ordering. At Bob’s, they don’t come to your table to take your order. You actually have to go up to the counter, order, pay, then choose your seat. After some time, they will ring a bell and yell out the order, then that is when you go and pick it up.

A beautiful sunny day means a day out, so what better way than to head to Steveston Village for lunch? I wouldn’t say there are endless options to choose from when eating in Steveston, but there is a fair amount of variety. From fresh seafood, to Greek , to desserts and cold treats, and who can forget the fish and chips! Steveston offers so many fish and chips places that it’s hard to decide on a particular place. However, I personally think you can never go wrong with Pajo’s. During the summer, the line ups are so long that they sometimes end near the bottom of the ramp, maybe even longer. Knowing this, I think it’s a safe bet that it’s many people’s go-to fish and and chips place, especially since they are fast. Luckily enough, we arrived around noon on a weekday, so it wasn’t busy at all. (more…)

Anyone ever experience random cravings for HK style desserts? Especially when it’s a hot day? Well, it was one of those days, and I wanted some “sugar water” (糖水). The biggest downfall to this location is that there is no FREE parking, so just a heads up to those who are planning to go.
This dessert place is owned by a husband-wife team, in which the husband took over the front. He was extremely helpful in helping us decide what to order, considering there were quite a bit of desserts to choose from. He even gave some of his recommendations and asked what we liked to see if there is an item that we are guaranteed to enjoy. I knew what I was getting the moment we got there, so the only thing that was a little difficult was ordering a dessert to bring home. (more…)

Despite the clouds in the picture, it was a bright, sunny day when I went to Chop. I forgot to take my own picture, so thanks, 604 munchies! Anyway, after watching an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives that featured burgers, I was seriously craving some. So we decided to come here, just for the heck of it. (more…)

Who else is enjoying all this sunshine? I know I am, and what better way to spend a hot Saturday afternoon and go for ice cream!Even though the location is kind of in the middle of no where, it doesn’t stop people from coming. I hear that the place is usually crowded, especially in the summer time, so I take it as a sign that it must be a must-try!
Now the thing that is most interesting to me is the fact that there are so many flavours, which makes one kind of think how can someone think of that many flavours? And then you imagine all the different things, like wasabi, garlic, and ginger. Well, surprise! La Casa has those flavours available (how bizarre is that?). They even have bizarre combinations, which may surprise you if you are brave enough to try. Unfortunately, I was not brave enough to try these flavours, because they just sounded too weird. So if you want to take the chance and have a little try, you can just ask because they do give free samples. (more…)
