Nightingale-Tapas in a Beautiful Space

Nightingale is Chef David Hawksworth’s second restaurant venture. Located on W. Hastings and Burrard Street, this restaurant has a less formal vibe and you might not even notice it if you pass by. I’ve never been to Hawksworth (situated inside Hotel Georgia) so this won’t be a comparison post.


My co-workers and I came for a spontaneous Friday lunch and they managed to squeeze us in. The menu does change frequently so you might you get exactly what I had (e.g. sides may differ seasonally). Some items are gluten free but you’ll have to check with your server because it’s not indicated on the menu.

WestCoast Poke-Poke Outside of Downtown

2016 was the year of poke since poke shops were popping up left and right. WestCoast Poke is one of the newer ones (or maybe by the time I publish this post it won’t be) outside of the downtown core on 8th and Cambie.

WestCoast Poké

It’s conveniently located near the Canada Line and they’ll probably get a lot of lunch time traffic from people working nearby.  Read more

Wild Wood Pacific Bistro-Whistler

My company had our Christmas party in Whistler this year at the Wild Wood Pacific Bistro. I was in charge of researching restaurants and we chose this one because they had the best set menu price. Wild Wood Pacific Bistro is located inside the Crystal Lodge.


We drove up on a Friday afternoon and explored Whistler Village for a bit before heading to dinner. Actually I was really hungry before dinner so I popped into Purebread for a snack first! I just couldn’t resist and had to satisfy my big sweet tooth. If you didn’t know, I’m obsessed with Purebread and I should probably do an updated post since I go there so often.

The Poke Shop-Poke with Tropical Drinks

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

I was invited to the soft opening of The Poke Shop in Gastown and I brought along Foodology, Foodgressing and C’est La Vie A Maggi. Since this was a soft opening, things may change slightly in the coming months as they tweak their operations.

The Poke Shop

The Poke Shop is located on Water Street next to Water Street Cafe and across from the steam clock. The store signage isn’t that noticeable if you’re not looking for it. Read more
