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.

Yahyahya

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.

Tacofino

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.

Chambar

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).

Koika

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

Axum

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.
