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”

Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Midam

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. ItContinue reading “Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Midam”

Korean Drinking Snacks at Hongdae Pocha

I saw the Hongdae Pocha advertisement on Instagram which was 50% off food from Sundays – Thursdays so I had to give it a try since it was such a good deal. Hongdae Pocha is associated with Sura which is just up the street from it. When we walked in there were quiet a fewContinue reading “Korean Drinking Snacks at Hongdae Pocha”

Wednesday Foodie Getaway at UYU

This is my second visit to UYU. There were only three choices on my visit to UYU and they were milk tea, roasted soy bean and original milk. I obviously went with the milk tea soft serve because I really like milk tea. I thought the milk tea was somewhat disappointing. It was soft andContinue reading “Wednesday Foodie Getaway at UYU”

Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Bubble Waffle Kerrisdale

Bubble Waffle was buzzing on a Saturday afternoon. It was pretty packed which was quite surprising. But it died down by around 2.   Usually at Bubble Waffle I get the Laksa, but since my friend had already chosen that, I decided to go for something different. I had their house made fish soup withContinue reading “Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Bubble Waffle Kerrisdale”

Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Ramen Gojiro

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 passedContinue reading “Wednesday Foodie Getaway at Ramen Gojiro”

The Korean and Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong. Authentic? or not?

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 justContinue reading “The Korean and Japanese restaurants in Hong Kong. Authentic? or not?”

Shipyards Night Market

The Shipyards Night Market is definitely not your biggest night market. But it’s a great excuse to take the seabus. I arrived around 5 pm and headed to the night market. My target for the day was to try a few food trucks that had been on my list for a while. The night marketContinue reading “Shipyards Night Market”
