Taking over the original Bao Down spot in Gastown is Edwards Seafood, a cozy San Francisco seafood inspired eatery which showcases the best of sustainable and lesser-known BC seafood. They also exclusively serve 49th Parallel beer by the can which is also used in the batter for the fish in many dishes. Excuse me as I type the rest of this post while drooling.Read More
I don't even know where to begin with this post, but I guess I can start by telling you that I'm salivating just at the memory of eating the food at Ancora.
Ancora is one of the new kids on the block (it's located where C Restaurant used to be) which specializes in using West Coast ingredients through Peruvian and Japanese techniques and flavours. From the stunning harbourfront view to the glistening crystal chandelier to the lovely service and exceptional food, Ancora is a gem that I almost want to keep to myself.Read More
Nordstrom, as many Vancouverites know, is the city's newest place to be downtown as we have finally been blessed with our own Nordstrom. Amongst the designer brands and crowds of anxious shoppers sits Bistro Verde, Nordstrom's very own restaurant which is located on the third floor of the store.

The Schuermans (owners of Chambar and Cafe Medina) have not disappointed with the new and improved Chambar on Beatty Street. The variety of food has expanded and the dining space is nothing short of modern elegance. My review today is based off my most recent two visitsRead More
The Fish Counter has been on my list of places to visit this summer and luckily I had the time to venture around the Riley Park/Little Mountain neighbourhood. The Fish Counter somehow combines a grocery store, seafood vendor, and eatery and does so quite seamlessly and appropriately. The eating space is small but the shop as whole is just so rustic and inviting. Summer is probably the best season to visit for dine-in food as there is additional seating outside the shop.Read More
Everyone knows that Rodney's Oyster House is the go-to place for oysters and surprisingly my first visit there was a few days ago. I never really intended to write a review during that visit but something(s) really impressed me during my visit which I believe are worth mentioning and sharing. So here's my visit to Rodney's during Low Tide hours (3-6pm) where you'd expect "happy hour service" and cheaper food but I somehow ended with much more than that.Read More
