Styo-Parfaits

I saw before that Styo had a SocialShopper deal going on but I didn’t get it because usually whenever I buy these deals I don’t end up using them but I think I could’ve in this case! Styo serves froyo parfaits and other froyo desserts as well as waffles and smoothies.

I like how they have a blue theme going on since I’m super biased and blue is my favourite color. Seating is pretty minimal though.

Argo Cafe

Argo Cafe was featured in the Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here. The outside looks pretty run down and the inside is similar but it’s a busy local diner. Their daily specials change everyday and you can find them on their website.

Argo Cafe There weren’t any booth seats left so we sat at this counter here. The diner is small so there were a lot of things stashed at the counter. Continue reading

Big Rock Urban Eatery-Not Impressed

Big Rock Urban Eatery is the newest brewery to join the Olympic Village area. They started out in Alberta and now they have a BC location.

We were here for the food though since I am still acquiring the taste for beer. The building doesn’t look like much from the outside but the inside looked industrial hip. It was really loud inside even though there weren’t that many people or loud music playing but it was hard to hear people from across the table or even beside you. Maybe it was just the way the building was constructed.

Sawasdee Thai

It was about time that I got my hands on some Thai food which I clearly don’t eat often enough! We arrived at Sawasdee Thai for lunch and they were understaffed so we had to wait 10 mins for a table even though they had tables but they weren’t cleared and there were only two servers working.

Since we had to wait for a table, we spent our time deciding what to order. All their lunch specials are under $10 and come with a spring roll and a skewer. They are also closed for lunch on Mondays.

Tacomio

Tacomio, located in Gastown, is the newest taco joint to open and it’s also just a block away from Tacofino. Talk about competition!

Tacomio

They serve 10 different types of tacos but not all are available everyday. The ones that are available are marked with a yellow sticker. We decided to get 6 tacos to share for $15. Continue reading

The BBT Shop

I was really excited when I saw photos of the fancy bubble waffles from the BBT Shop. The BBT Shop is located in the parking lot under Superstore and the location is pretty convenient and there’s always parking! I also grabbed a great window seat for photos. Ok well… the photos still aren’t that great just so you know!
