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.

I ventured out all the way to Burquitlam to get my shaved ice fix, but I would not do it again. We walked it and found Kobe Bryant at the door ready to greet us (cut out). The whole place was decked out in basketball related objects like a basketball net and air Jordon’s. It was an interesting pick of décor to say the least. … Continue reading Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Midam

I had their house made fish soup with oil noodles, beef brisket and curry fish balls. The noodles … Continue reading Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Bubble Waffle Kerrisdale
I ventured over to Ramen Gojiro to try their ramen after seeing all the photos on Instagram. I’ve been wanting to go ever since their soft opening but finally found time to go recently. We walked in and were able to snag the last table before waiting for the next round. Another 5 minutes passed and there was a line out of the door. It … Continue reading Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Ramen Gojiro
In terms of Korean and Japanese food, Hong Kong does have a lot to offer but whether or not it’s authentic is another story. Most of these Korean and Japanese restaurants are opened and run by Hong Kong people. But what is authentic is up to you to interpret. For Japanese food, I mostly just had sushi. The ramen I had, can be found in … Continue reading The Korean and Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong. Authentic? or not?
