Prince Seafood Restaurant

Hey Everyone,

Not too long ago I had dimsum with Jess and her family at Prince! I’ve been here previously for dinner but never for dimsum, so I was curious to see how it was.

We had quite a few items but I’ll feature a few select items here.

We had the Steamed Spareribs which were not bad here. I don’t usually go for this dish but I was hungry so I had some. I found them to be mediocre, but not special in any way, and to be honest, Jess’ mom makes them better!

Royalwood Restaurant & Lounge

Hey Everyone,


Writing a different kind of food blog today, as I’m writing about Royalwood Golf course’s restaurant! The reason for this is because Royalwood has a Steak Night Special for 2 on Saturday and Sundays!

This golf course is located in Chilliwack and is basically next to the mountains. The deal is $90 for a twosome to have a round of golf with a power cart included, and a special dinner after your round!


For the food, you get a choice of New York Steak or Teriyaki Chicken. I went with my dad and we both got the steak:



For $45 per person, this is one heck of a deal! You get a salad with your choice of dressing on the side (I went with Caesar), garlic toast, fries, and my medium rare steak on top. The salad was fresh and tasty, the garlic toast was awesome (by now you should know I love bread), the fries were my favourite kind of cut and fried nicely, and the steak was pretty good for the value! There was nothing to complain about on this dish at all, and it was just what I needed after a round of golf in the blazing heat of Chilliwack during this BC heatwave!

And of course, nothing refreshes quite like a nice pint of beer as well!


We both had Sapporo’s.

The server was very friendly and prompt, and she provided excellent service!

Overall this was an excellent experience at Royalwood Golf Course complete with golf and a meal. I would definitely recommend all our readers to check this place out if you golf as it is definitely one of the best deals you can find for the complete package!

You can find out more about them here.

Service:

$$ is what I would rate the food price at if you are including the golf in this.

Hello everyone!

The other day my friends & I decided to try out a Japanese restaurant located on West 16th near Cambie. We went on a Thursday so it wasn’t that busy, which was great! We didn’t have to wait long for our table & also we were able to find tons of parking space along West 16th & on the side streets.  The interior is very small but not compact to the point where its unbearable. Its a very cute Japanese themed restaurant. They have numerous Japanese décor around the space and it made the atmosphere feel very comfortable.

This restaurant is owned by Japanese people, unlike the Japanese restaurants we have around Vancouver right now which is mostly owned by either Koreans or Chinese people. Don’t get me wrong, those ones are great too! But once in a while I love to eat from an authentic Japanese restaurant.


First off, we ordered the Tuna & Salmon Sashimi plate ($15.00) which came with 4 slices of each. The sashimi was fresh and tasted great! Can’t complain about sashimi 🙂 The slices were cut up rather thick so I thought we got a good amount for the price!

Next up are rolls!
From left to right: Kanpyo Roll ($2.75), BBQ Eel & Cucumber ($5.50), Green Onion & Fatty Tuna ($3.95).
I really enjoyed all the rolls! It all tasted great! My personal favourite was the green onion & fatty tuna! It was my first time trying a Kanpyo roll and it reminded me a lot of bamboo shoot. Kanpyo is actually dried long strips of gourd. It is a traditional Japanese ingredient and it tasted pretty good!

Last but not least, we got ourselves the Black Cod Saikyoyaki ($21.50) which came with rice, miso soup and side dishes.  The side dishes include, tofu (bottom left corner), cucumber & radish, veggies, etc (top middle) The black cod was huge and tasted amazing! The texture was soooooo soft and the flavour was just ON POINT! I love everything in this meal and I would definitely order this again and recommend it! I ordered black cod from other Japanese before and usually I have to pay quite a bit for just the fish. So I thought 21 bucks for this whole meal was reasonable.

Frites

Hello Food Family!

How ya’ll doing? Today I’m back with another blog post on POUTINE. The combination of cheese, gravy & fries are just irresistible. I saw a voucher on social shopper a while back for this deal and I thought might as well give this place a try.
It is located in Downtown, Granville Street. Basically the clubbing street. They are opened from 11am-4am, so I’m assuming a lot of the night crawlers go there after a long night of pounding music and mass slurping on alcohol. I went there with my brother & Phil and we got there around 9pm. 

First glance impression of the interior, small restaurant with minimal edge seating along the walls with high stools. There is one cashier and one main cook at the back. I was pretty shocked noticing the cashier actually had a chair to sit on. I’m not concerned or anything because I’m actually glad they know how tiring it can be standing all day, so might as well sit when there’s no customers.

They had a pretty extensive menu considering they base it on just poutine. They don’t just serve the classic poutine, they have some crazy versions such as Kimchi Frites, Okonomi Frites, & Pad Thai Frites. I really wanted to order those ones but we went for safer options and ordered Pulled Pork ($8.99) & Montreal Smoked Meat ($8.99)


Pulled Pork tasted great! I suggest when you first get your poutine, start mixing everything up so the cheese melts completely. BUT I’m assuming you all already know that… lol

Both of them tasted really good and I highly suggest checking it out if you want a quick, cheesy poutine meal in Downtown. I prefer the Pulled Pork one over the Montreal smoked meat just because I like the flavor of pulled pork more but it’s all about personal preference.

O’Neills Home Cooking

Hi everyone!

Happy Chinese New Year!!!!

It’s been a busy couple of weeks, but I finally have time to blog! Yesterday we had to head down to Abbotsford for work related purposes and we were so happy that the weather was so gorgeous. After finishing up with business in Abbotsford, we decided to choose a local restaurant to try out. When we went through Urbanspoon, the ratings for O’Neills Home Cooking was very good, so we decided to give that place a try!

O’Neill’s Home Cooking is located in Gosling Way. This place is really close to Duft & Co Bakehouse. At first glance, interior is rather dull and doesn’t have much character but when we first stepped in, the host greeted us and knew right away we were first timers (I guess it’s because I wasn’t sure what to do when I first entered and looked rather confused??)! We were fully introduced to the menu by her and she was extremely friendly and helpful! Her service made me feel very comfortable in this place and definitely gave me a home vibe. Everyday they have different type of specials, yesterdays special was Potato leek & garlic soup & Shepherds pie.

At first me & Phil wanted to order two separate sandwiches so we can try different things but the host advised us that the sandwiches are HUGE! At first we weren’t sure how big it’ll be so we were pretty indecisive. After a few seconds of hesitation, a big man came over (aka. one of the customers) he came over and had to wrap up most of his meal and he was already sharing his with his buddy! After seeing that occurring, we finalized on our decision and just ordered one sandwich plus combo (additional $4.00, which came with soup & drink).

We decided to order “The Classic” which consists of Toasted golden sweet potato bun, black forest ham, cooked egg, cheese & mayo ($6.00)
The sandwich and soup was split between me and Phil so we both got a half sandwiched with a bowl of soup.

First off, we got the Potato, Leek & Garlic Soup. The picture you see below is the half bowl of soup. There was actually a lot of soup in the bowl for each of us and was pretty shocked at the amount considering it was already been split. The soup was very comforting.

Here’s the sandwich! The black forest ham used here is the thick ham and I love it! It was so perfectly cut and the overall sandwich tasted amazing! Phil and I were down to our last few bites and we were both SO FULL. Half a sandwich was definitely enough for each of us! Overall it was a fantastic sandwich and I will definitely come back here again.

Hey Everyone!

Yesterday Phil and I had a super late lunch and we were right in time for Earl’s happy hour menu. We went to the Burnaby location and I love how I can still enjoy their patio in the middle of September. Summer ain’t over just yet!

I was so glad to see Sangria being on the happy hour menu. I ordered a White Wine Peach Sangria for $4.00, it was soooooo delicious. It was fruity and refreshing, just what I needed at the time!

We saw BBQ Pork Buns on the menu and we were really curious how they made this, so we decided to order two to try. It was surprisingly really good. It has a bit of spice to it but it made the whole thing extremely flavorful.

BBQ Pork Buns $2.00/Each


Next we got the Chicken Tenders ($13.00), this is not on the happy hour menu, but I love and need my chicken so I ordered this anyways. The chicken was crispy on the outside and cooked just right on the inside. We always loved Earl’s French fries, so that did not disappoint. On the side it comes with a plum sauce for your chicken and ketchup for your fries.

Crispy Tuna Sushi Cones ($4.00)
First cone we got, there was a strand of hair inside the cone so we had to ask for another one. Hoping that this would be worth the wait, but it wasn’t. The outer cone was a soft texture, reminded me of the wrap that people use to make spring rolls. Anyways, overall I did not like the mixed ingredients that they decided to put within the cone. I wouldn’t recommend ordering this.

Dynamite Prawn & Mango Roll ($8.00)
I wasn’t expecting much from their sushi rolls, but WOW this was a shocker. It was actually very delicious. The combinations of the ingredients worked really well with each other and the sauce complimented the overall sushi very well. The orangey sauce has a bit of spice but it’s very mild.

Phil ate this Chicken Taco ($4.00) And he thought it was alright but probably wouldn’t order it again.

Who loves Viet Subs?! If you do, then this place will shoot your tastebuds to heaven..! lol

I went in February when vaneats.ca had a voucher to this place. I saw many positive reviews on this place so I decided to go try it out with limmerZ. The staff were extremely friendly, especially the brother and sister who works there. The interior of the place is very modern, definitely not a typical viet place.

Our vouchers came with drinks, so we both got the honeydew smoothie. Extremely flavourful and I’m usually not a smoothie type of person but this was so good! The other option was the avocado smoothie, but I thought honeydew would taste a lot better.


limmerZ & I both got half a lemongrass chicken viet sub & half roasted pork viet sub. The lemongrass chicken was SUPER DELICIOUS! I love it soooo much!!! I highly recommend the chicken viet sub. On the other hand, the roasted pork was not that great….but what can I really say… I was not a big roasted pork fan at the beginning. The subs there are made fresh and super flavourful, also the workers there are very helpful and friendly.

I highly recommend this place!
