I decided to head to New Westminster on a whim one Saturday afternoon for a casual stroll and lunch. After lunch at RE-UP, we headed to Bobacana at the skytrain station for a refreshing drink. We ordered the triple mango and thought that it was okay. It didn’t taste much like fresh mango and more like the Asian mango icecream that you get from Asian … Continue reading Boba Cabana
I dropped by the Vegan Pudding Co. window on Richards the other day and saw they had Hojicha flavoured vegan pudding so I had to give it a try. I thought the pudding itself was not as smooth as I would have liked. It was just a tad grainy. The hojicha flavour came through slightly but I didn’t like the caramel sauce on top because … Continue reading Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Vegan Pudding Co.
I’ve been to swiss bakery many times for their froissants and I was craving them again so I made a quick pit stop for one. Boy was this was disappointing.

Although it is a little far, I was willing to make the trek. From their reviews on Yelp, I was expecting quite a lot, but after looking at some … Continue reading Coffee Monday at Choco Coo

First Vancouver post of 2016! So on Sunday, I ventured out all the way to Burnaby because I was really craving some Shanghai steamed dumplings and fried dumplings. Ended up at the Crystal Mall food court’s Xu Wontons because it’s my go to place for Shanghai fried dumplings. What I like about their dumplings is that the broth inside the dumplings are not too salty … Continue reading Crystal Mall Adventures
