TAKO (Taqueria Koreano)

I’ve previously tried Korean-Mexican fusion food before at the Disco Cheetah food truck and it was pretty good so I was interested in trying a similar concept at TAKO or Taqueria Koreano.

They are just outside the Stadium Chinatown skytrain station which is extremely convenient! I work close to Waterfront station so I just hop on the train for a few stops to get here for a quick lunch.

Miura Restaurant and Bar-Rebranded

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

Thanks to Instagram foodie and food blogger, Jacqueline (Check out her blog here), I got to visit the new rebranded Miura Restaurant and Bar with some other foodies. It was formerly known as Miura Waffle and Milk Bar. They were also featured on You Gotta Eat Here! Don’t worry they still have some of their famous waffle sandwiches on the menu! As a restaurant and bar, they serve appies and entrees that are more izakaya style. Of course there are also alcoholic beverages.

Frites Granville-Not Your Usual Fries

I know most people have fries as a side to their meal but for me, I like to have the fries as the main course. I saw that Frites Granville had an exciting selection of gourmet fries so I had to check it out.

Some many appetizing options like the Pad Thai fries and Okonomi fries! It’s nice that they have pictures on the wall to help you decide (or make it harder to decide if you’re like me).  Read more

VanVan Izakaya

Disclaimer: All food was complimentary but opinions are my own

I was invited to another ChineseBites event at VanVan Izakaya on Robson across from Forage. All the dishes below were shared between 6 people and we tried most of their menu. If you see awkward shadows in my photo, that’s someone else pointing their camera at the same time (or everyone)!

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.

White Spot

I ended up eating lunch at like 3pm and ended up going to White Spot at Oakridge since it was convenient and also they have happy hour from 3-6pm so I thought I’d take advantage of that. Also I saw pictures of their new burger guest stars on Instagram and they looked good.

Unfortunately we did not end up picking appies that qualified for happy hour because a) I can’t read the menu obviously and b) even though I checked with the server and she was like yup yup it turned out that it was a nope nope >.> so we ended up feeling ripped off after and I could’ve ordered other stuff that was more worth the money.

White Spot

This was the Crispy Three Cheese Ravioli filled with mozzarella, parmesan and ricotta cheese and served with arrabiata sauce. The ravioli were fried and cheesy inside but tasted mostly doughy and all the different cheeses they used didn’t seem to have much of an impact.
