My friend wanted to try some French food, so we came here on a Friday night for Dineout Vancouver. We decided to share our mains and desserts so we could try as much as possible!


Went here for yet another Dineout Vancouver dinner with my friends.


Yet another Dineout Vancouver meal. It was fairly busy, despite it being a weekday evening. I would categorize the food at Bambudda as modern Asian cuisine, or Asian/Western fusion. However, their website explicitly says that Bambudda isn’t fusion and is instead “elevated Asian cuisine…”


Went here for my second Dineout Vancouver dinner! It was hard to get a table here, but we managed to get one for three people on a Saturday night, albeit around 8 pm.

The Observatory

First Dineout Vancouver dinner of 2017! Went to The Observatory with my family and my partner. We were coming from UBC and the drive was horrendous. Left UBC at 5, needed to get to the restaurant by 6:30. Google Maps said it would take 53 minutes to drive there but it took way longer, unfortunately….


Came here for a belated birthday celebration on a Sunday evening around 6. It was not crowded at all — we were one of the only two groups in the restaurant.

Sushi Van

First time going here at the suggestion of a friend. We came here on a weekday around 12. It wasn’t too busy right before noon, but as soon as it was noon several groups started coming in and a line began to form. Good thing I got in here before then lol.

Cafe Medina

The last time I went to Cafe Medina it was at their old location. I didn’t realize this at first and was a bit confused when I arrived because it didn’t look familiar lol. We came here on a Friday around noon. It was quite busy — I came here with a friend and we…

The Flying Pig (Olympic Village)

We came here on a really cold weekday evening after visiting the Enchant Christmas Light Maze nearby. The restaurant was pretty busy!

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna

My friend wanted to try Greek food so we went here on a Friday night. A couple people have been telling me this is the go-to place in Vancouver for Greek food, and I finally got to try it out. I was also told that there would be long line-ups, but that wasn’t the case…

Octopus Garden

According to a few online reviews, Octopus Garden is supposedly among the best places for omakase in Vancouver. We decided to go with the $100 omakase at the bar. Overall, there was a variety of different dishes but it wasn’t what we were expecting.


I think this was my third time at Cardero’s. We came here on a Saturday night for a family birthday celebration!
