Vancouver eats.

I eat a lot. Like a lot. If you’ve ever watched my snap chat or instagram stories it will ALWAYS consist of some sort of food. Whether my bf cooked it or I’m out eating my face off. I live for the next meal haha. If you’re wondering what I’ve had for the past few months you can check my instagram highlighted ‘SNACKS’ story!

 

I thought I would put together a list of restaurants and things I like from each restaurant for you guys. I travel so much and eat so much so I want to start a City + Food series. It won’t be a billion blog posts but something simple enough that if you’re heading to

eg. Hong Kong or Barcelona you can click on my personal list.

 

Everything that I have listed below are just my opinions and a lot of places I’ve eaten at might not be on the list cuz I didn’t want to list out every damn restaurant in Vancouver LOL. If you want to know about a particular restaurant in Vancouver feel free to message me and I’ll let you know whatsup!

Dessert:

Snowy Village – Mango Bingsoo with a side of strawberries.

Tried and disliked:

Kissa Tanto – Willing to give it another try but I ordered the fish there and the sauce was lacking and I ordered a tuna dish thinking it was going to be RAW and it came cooked.. so I felt like I was eating baby food.
Bao Bei – Over priced asian food.
Sai Woo – Nothing on their menu ever wow’s me.
House Special – I got the XLB there, they steamed in onto a metal spoon so when I tried to eat it, it got stuck to the spoon and was dry inside. Food was meh, I rather go to Phnom Penh.
Bauhaus – Over priced.
Mister – Over priced.
Icy Bar – I like snowy village better because its actual icy milk.
Juke Chicken – I like Churches better. Their corn was good but I think they’re trying to replicate the corn from La Carnita’s from Toronto but didn’t quite Ace it.
Q Shi Q – Rather pay to go to Zakkushi or Guu
Belgard Kitchen – Yummy beer, food meh. (I only come here when I’m waiting for a table at ‘Ask for Luigi’s’)
