Cacao 70

I was meeting a language exchange partner for the first time and we decided to check out Cacao 70%.

Uncle Fatih Pizza

Decided to come here for a quick bite before watching the Gukoroku: Traces of Sin movie that was being put on by VIFF at the International Village cinema.


We were supposed to go to Jinya ramen in the evening. Despite it being 8 pm we were told we had to wait 30 minutes. So instead we went to Yahyahya. I’ve been to the Richmond location and didn’t really like it so I wasn’t expecting much at all.

House of Dosas

Decided to meet up with a friend at House of Dosas. I heard from my friend that the head chef here left and started up Dosa Corner and that this place wasn’t as good anymore, but I wanted to try it anyway. Note I don’t have Indian food too often which may become apparent soon.


I actually wanted to eat ramen but the shop was closed so I went to tacofino for takeout instead.

Basil Pasta Bar

Came here on a weekday evening. It wasn’t crowded at all. I’d heard a lot of good things about this place but it was my first time checking it out.

Black & Blue

My next Dine Out Vancouver meal of 2018 was at Black & Blue. We had pretty high expectations of the place from what we heard, and also upon entering the restaurant which seemed pretty high class.

Berry Good

We came here for dessert on a late Saturday afternoon and it was completely empty.


This was actually my first time coming to Chambar. I’ve been wanting to visit for quite a while, but a lot of my friends either don’t go to the more expensive restaurants, or they already went to Chambar… So I decided to come here for Dine Out Vancouver ($40 menu).


Came here for a weekday lunch with some friends. Unfortunately, our lunch break took much longer than planned… partially because Translink sucks.


Second ever Ethiopian restaurant I’ve been to; the other one being Harambe.

Santouka (Broadway)

Came here on a weekday evening around 6:15 and it was quite busy. We had to wait 10 – 15 minutes.
