I hardly ever go to North Van or Lonsdale Quay so I couldn’t quite remember what they had in the food court there. I actually wanted to go to The Coffee Bun Bakery but they are closed on Sundays so I wandered around and El Dorado Pie & Treats caught my eye. It was either that or crepes. You know I have a sweet tooth!

Foodgressing was organizing a media tasting on behalf of MagiCream and kindly invited me to go! I had seen a few photos on Instagram but I hadn’t really heard much else about them. They seem to be the only liquid nitrogen ice cream shop not located in downtown. They are in Kerrisdale to be exact. Little did I know, I was about to be impressed.
I was visiting the YVR Outlet when I spotted the Qoola food truck parked outside. It was a somewhat warm day so I made a beeline there to see what they offered.
Clearly I wasn’t the only one interested because they had a steady stream of customers. Read more
After my tasting at Spaghetei, I walked up to the fairly new Snowy Village location on Robson because we had been talking about it and I wanted to try their taiyaki (the Japanese fish shaped pancake with filling).
This location wasn’t that busy at all! I’ve heard about the outrageous line ups at their original location in Richmond so I’ve never tried it. Read more
My friend kindly sent me the Baker’s Krate box last month for my birthday and boy was I excited to receive it! To be fair, it was sitting at the post office for a few days before I went to pick it up because I missed it at my house…
Baker’s Krate selects different hand-crafted baked goods from all across Canada to ship to you every month. Sounds delicious already right? The treats they selected for August were right up my alley!
Did you know there’s a food holiday for every day of the year? Sadly there aren’t enough restaurants that celebrate them or it would be too costly. For National Cheesecake Day this year (July 28th), Trees Organic Coffee offered cheesecakes for 50% off!
They are voted Vancouver’s best cheesecake and they have a few locations around Vancouver. I went to the one on Granville Street beside Waterfront station. I love discounts/freebies (especially when it comes to food) and it’s close to where I work so I had to go! I thought there would be some crazy line ups but it was pretty tame. The wait was about 15 minutes or so. This is in contrast to that time I waited for an hour at IHOP for National Pancake Day (NEVER AGAIN).
Popbar opened a few months ago and has taken over the spot where Beard Papa’s used to be, next to Superstore in Metrotown. I must say that I was not initially too excited about the concept, I mean I love ice cream/gelato and cold confections but for some reason, it didn’t seem to have the “wow” factor?
I saw on Facebook that they had a promotion where if you liked their page you get 30% off so that’s what prompted my visit. Or should I say, I “popped” in? ;) The promotion ended on July 31st but maybe they’ll have more in the future. Read more
