I’m so glad the long weekend has officially started! Even though the weather has been dreadful these days, I’m really looking forward to sleeping in each morning for the next couple of days!
I personally LOVE sushi and I crave it everyday. When I heard Poke Bowls were opening up in Vancouver Downtown, I was extremely stoked. One of the few that opened up so far is “Poke Time”. It’s located right on the street of Robson. The interior was very simple. They got bar seating against the walls.

Today we went to Crystal Mall to check out some sunglasses and we stumbled upon the newly opened location of Shiny Tea on the 2nd floor, next to the food court. They also have another location in Aberdeen Centre (the new side of Aberdeen). We’ve seen many photos on social media of other foodies trying out their bubble tea so we thought we might as well give this place a try. This bubble tea shop originated from Taiwan and they have a green sign that states they’ve been authorized by Mr. Tsung-Ho Tu, inventor of Taiwan’s Tapioca Milk Tea.

Hope you all are enjoying the nice hot weather in Vancouver. Hopefully it rains a lot at Fort McMurray soon so it can stop the fire from spreading. If you guys have not donated to Red Cross to help out the people there yet, pls do so! Here is the link: http://www.redcross.ca/?_ga=1.77344918.2093509003.1462670469, Since we are not there to help out, I hope donating would help all the people there, especially the young families with kids.
So last week, my parents and I went to the newly opened vietnamese restaurant located on Main Street called Anh & Chi. All foodies have been checking this place out and posting tons of photos of their food and interior through all types of social media. This location previously was called Pho Hoang and they revamped the space and changed their name but the people are still the same. The mom is working in the kitchen and I believe her kids took over and changed it to this new modern space but still holds authentic dishes!

Went for Pho a few weeks ago and we decided to check out Pho 24 Express in Burnaby. Initially we were in the Brentwood area but we were not successful finding a Pho restaurant around that area so we decided to drive near Metro and see what there is. We’ve been to Pho 24 Express before but that was a couple of years back so we didn’t know what to expect. There’s free parking on the side streets so definitely check there first before parking at the front (which is meter parking).

The weather in Vancouver recently has been amazing and I’m not talking about today. For the past few weeks we’ve been getting alot of sunshine here in BC. During these days, nobody wants to stay indoors and one popular location to hit up is at Steveston, Richmond. AKA. Storybrooke, the place they filmed and WILL continue to film forever and ever “Once Upon A Time”. One of the hit shows on TV and also my personal favourite TV show at the moment.
We were strolling around Steveston looking for a place to eat and we came across this restaurant called Cimona. I remembered my bro telling me about this place and how it has amazing deals and serves some amazing food. By the time we got there, majority of the tables were taken. Fortunately, there were two bar seats next to the window. We took it immediately and sat down.
It’s a very small little restaurant and you can tell most are regulars. Many are seniors, having their morning coffee & looking at their newspapers. Others with kids, eating pancakes and enjoying their family time. It gave me a very comfortable and warm feeling sitting in there.

If you’ve watched our vlog from last week, you’ll know we went to Surrey to get our taxes done. After, we decided to just grab some lunch around the area. We came across a “trial opening” for the Bubble Waffle Cafe so we decided to just grab some lunch there. The first time I saw Bubble Waffle Cafe as an actual sit in restaurant. I always see them as food court vendors but this time around it was a different experience.

Happy Chinese New Year! I feel like I haven’t blogged in the longest time. I’ve been so busy with everything in life, I literally had no time to blog. BUT I am officially back and I have a few lined up blog posts which will be coming out very soon!
If you read my blogs, you would probably notice a bunch of my reviews are within Richmond. All my activities 80% of the time revolves around Richmond, so its hard to get out of there at times. During the weekend we went to Metrotown to shop and we came across this new restaurant that I personally never seen before. Its right under the food court and its a Udon Bar. They definitely renovated the interior and it looks very big and spacious. I was happy to see on their menu they also have sushi roll options. I was really craving for sushi but we decided to go for their weekend deal instead.
Their lunch special only happens on weekends from 11am-3pm. You can choose a Udon option, a rice option, soup or salad and it comes with two sides, all for $10.50.
Phil got the Chasu Don, Tonkatsu Udon, Miso Soup & two sides – $10.50. He thought his was pretty good. A very good value for that price. The udon was not as soft as he wanted but good enough. He thought the soup was pretty good but nothing that special about the Udon.
I got the Sake Don, Chicken Yaki Udon, Miso Soup with two sides- $10.50.
The Sake Don was simple, came with 3-4 slices of salmon sashimi with japanese rice. The Yaki Udon came with barely any chicken but still a good portion. It was pan fried with a few carrots, onions, chicken and udon. The sides came with one potato filled dumpling and a orange. Overall, for $10.50, it came with a very good variety. I like how it came with rice & udon. It was a very filling meal and I think its a great option for lunch if you are planning to eat at Metrotown. This restaurant is owned by Chinese, but their food deals are great. Not legit Japanese cooked dishes but good enough to fill up your belly!
Lunch deal during the weekends- $10.50
Overall Rating: 3/5
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR 🙂
