My co-worker told me about this sandwich that he was really passionate about from O’Love Bistro. O’Love is a Mediterranean/Greek inspired bistro tucked away on the side/back of Bentall 1 . I would’ve never found this place if I wasn’t looking for it. I love how the name is like a play on words with “olive”. Read more
Marine Gateway at Marine Drive Station is almost in full swing now as many shops are open. This includes two restaurants: Pink Elephant Thai and Dublin Crossing, which is an Irish pub. I’ve never been to an Irish pub before or well I don’t really go to pubs in general… so I wanted to try this one out since it looked nice and new.
They have a small patio area outside. It would be hard to find free parking here though unless you’re willing to walk a bit. Read more
Tangram Creamery is one of the newest ice cream stores to open. There is really no shortage of ice cream in Vancouver! Located on Arbutus between 10th and 11th avenue, they are well known for their “cookie cones”, also called langue du chat in French. There’s a decent number of seats inside with a long wooden bench along the window and a wooden communal table in the middle. Read more
After my visit to Bubble Waffle Cafe Kerrisdale, my friend wanted to meet up for lunch and go to Bubble Waffle Cafe at Royal Centre. This seems to be one of their newer locations. I was looking forward to more noodle soup after my experience at their Kerrisdale location.
The cafe stall is located on the lower level of Royal Centre where the food court is. Compared to the location in Kerrisdale and Aberdeen, there are less options for the toppings here.
They come in “sets” of different proteins (e.g. fish, beef, pork etc.) and you just pick one of the sets with your choice of soup base. This probably makes it easier for them to prepare the food and maybe it helps people decide faster. Read more

Pearl Castle is one of my favorite Taiwanese cafes and I used to come here a lot before some of the newer Taiwanese cafes popped up. Even my parents like it! I was invited to a menu tasting by ChineseBites with Sophia (Every Day Is a Food Day) so I was excited to try some new things and old favourites. We ordered 4 appies, 4 drinks and 4 entrees! It was enough to feed another three people… Read more
I was on a brief health kick for a while so I decided to check out Melu Juice and Health Bar which is conveniently located near where I work. I saw some pictures of their yummy looking health bars and needed to try them! This is a combination of a few visits. Read more
Disclaimer: The noodle soup combo (noodle soup + 1 drink + bubble waffle) and takoyaki were complimentary and we paid for the chicken rice. Opinions are my own as usual.
I was invited to try Bubble Waffle Cafe when they messaged me on Instagram. Of course I was more than happy to go! Who doesn’t like bubble waffle?! Also I’ve never actually tried them before even though they have been expanding rapidly last year. The line ups are just too long and if you’ve been reading my blog, then you’ll know I hate line ups.
Their Kerrisdale location is their flagship store. It’s just a few stores down from Orange Corner. You won’t miss it with those giant sail flags! There’s even a small patio area outside which would be nice in the summer although it’s not covered so it would probably get kinda hot. Read more
