Olive Oil Focaccia

I absolutely love making bread and love eating it as well. It’s so hearty and warming and obviously carb-y. Focaccia is one of the easiest breads that you can make. It requires little work but it makes a beautiful bread that’s not too heavy and thick but still satisfies your bread cravings. Ingredients: 1 TeaspoonContinue reading “Olive Oil Focaccia”

Gochujang/Pepper Paste Pasta

One of my favourite fusion foods to make is this Korean- inspired pasta dish. Whenever I’m craving a spicy pasta this is my go to recipe. It’s sweet, spicy and very cheesy. Everything you want in a dish essentially. Should I call this dish Gochunese Pasta? Or Bolojang Pasta? What sounds better to you?  Continue reading “Gochujang/Pepper Paste Pasta”

Nutty Granola Waffle Recipe

Found this recipe off the book The Hot Bread Kitchen Cookbook: Artisanal Baking from Around the World by Jessamyn Waldman Rodriguez and Julia Turshen, and decided to give it a try (made a few tweaks according to the ingredients I had available).

Wei Dao Cafe

I ventured all the way out of Metrotown to try this somewhat new Taiwanese restaurant. They have quiet an extensive menu filled with many items but unfortunately we were only two people so I couldn’t order everything. I had the popcorn chicken – which was a generous portion. It was nicely salted and the outerContinue reading “Wei Dao Cafe”

Kinome Izakaya

It’s hard to find Japanese restaurants actually run by Japanese people in Vancouver. So when I do know of one, I have to visit it. Kinome Izakaya specializes in soba noodles. The ones served at Kinome are handmade and hard to find in Vancouver. Everything I had at Kinome was well made but nothing wasContinue reading “Kinome Izakaya”

Singaporean Food at Prata Man

I had high hopes for this restaurant because of its great review online but unfortunately I was disappointed. We got half a free range chicken and it was not very good. It didn’t taste like free range chicken. It wasn’t very tender. I prefer City1 Café. 5/10 We got the Singapore noodles which were reallyContinue reading “Singaporean Food at Prata Man”

Denny’s?

In all honestly, I’ve been craving Denny’s for a long time. I think it’s the childhood nostalgia that made me want to visit Denny’s. When I was little, my dad used to take my sister and I to Denny’s for lunch and my mom would hate it but obviously being kids we loved it. IContinue reading “Denny’s?”
