Foodography: Eating on the Go x Metro Vancouver

Foodography: Eating on the go in and around Metro Vancouver from 2012 to 2013.

Urban Thai Bistro | Yaletown, Vancouver

Urban Thai Bistro: We had the green curry with beef and eggplant and Pad Thai with chicken and tofu. Both lunch specials were satisfying and filling and solid options.

Chung's Fish & Chips | Ladner, BCWestern Lake Chinese Seafood Restauran | Victoria Drive, Vancouver

Chung’s Fish & Chips: (left) The historical Chung family (no relation) in Delta going back fifty years, known for its fresh fish and Christmas trees, have kept the tradition alive. This fish and chips eatery serves a mean deep fried filet of cod, salmon, or halibut. Western Lake Chinese Seafood Restaurant: (right) This is easily one of the top Chinese seafood restaurants in Vancouver and they didn’t disappoint with their meaty king crab legs served nicely with a tasty, flavourful garlic garnish.

Take Five Café | Gastown, Vancouver

Take Five Cafe: (left) This local coffee franchise has taken a left turn with its newest cafe. The spot offers a full, all day service including a robust lunch and dinner menu with beer and wine service. I found the sandwiches filling and refreshing. Stir Coffee House: (right) This brand new hipster style cafe in the heart of small town Ladner in Delta serves Parallel 49 Roasters coffee. It’s a charming corner coffee shop that serves a light, flavourful cafe mocha.

Glowbal's The Fish Shack | Granville Street, VancouverPearl Castle | Richmond, BC

The Fish Shack: (left) We just made it in time for their everyday buck-a-shuck oyster happy hour. The fresh ones from Chef’s Creek, Gigamoto, and Gorge Inlet were quite delicious and tasty going down. After, we snacked on some crispy fries and onion rings. Pearl Castle Café: (right) Our drinks (mint chocolate bubble tea, mango, and fresh strawberry slush) hit the spot. As well, the deep fried chicken nuggets made for a decent, quick snack. Richmond’s flagship Pearl Castle location proved a solid choice for bubble tea refreshment.

Whet Kitchen & Bar | Granville Island, VancouverRamen Jinya | Yaletown, Vancouver

Whet Kitchen Bar Patio: (left) Whet’s food was appetizing and well prepared enough. However, everything lacked a certain flair or flavour on its own, especially the appetizers. It was altogether an unremarkable meal despite enjoying the duck confit and fish tacos. Jinya Ramen: (right) This ramen shop on the Eastern side of Robson proved worthy enough. Their soup’s consistency and flavourful noodles warmed the stomach and the menu offered some good variety. I found their gyōza dumplings fairly tasty and more than an admirable compliment to the ramen.

Pinkberry Canada | Richmond Centre Dining TerraceCherry Fruit Juice & Icy Bar | Parker Place, Richmond, BC

Pinkberry: (left) I enjoyed the mango flavour but am kind over Pinkberry. It’s a good, tasty, and high quality dessert but expensive for what you get. It’s also so much cheaper without toppings too. Cherry Fruit Juice & Icy Bar: (right) The strawberry and mango filled icy was satisfying enough with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. However, the mango wasn’t fresh and tasted bland. The syrups and condensed milk added a nice texture and taste to the chilled dessert bowl.

Grain Tasting Bar | Hyatt Regency VancouverCarousel Bakery | St. Lawrence Market @ Toronto, Ontario

Grain Tasting Bar: (left) This is not your average hotel bar with a focus on stylish decor, local craft beer, and Ocean Wise seafood. Grain offers an interesting selection of charcuterie, mixed cocktails, and a lounging atmosphere in the heart of Vancouver’s financial district. Carousel Bakery: (right) Breakfast on a bun bacon sandwich with two slices of lean peameal-style bacon, a fried egg, and cheese, served on a bun.
