L.A. Chicken

I do not know why it took me so long to venture out to Richmond to try L.A. Chicken. As a first timer here, I was quite shocked how rundown this place looked and in need of some renovation for sure. There are roughly around 5 small tables, another sign that it is mostly just a takeout joint. (more…)

Eight 1/2 Restaurant Lounge

I had an opportunity to try out Eight ½ Restaurant Lounge awhile back as they were having a 20% off brunch promotion if you post a photo of your meal on social media for that particular day. Their brunch specials run from 11am to 3pm on weekends.


Hakkasan Bistro – Media Event

I would like to thank Hakkasan Bistro for inviting me to their complimentary dinner and wine pairing media event. The restaurant is located in a primarily industrialized area in Richmond where nobody really notices it. Their culinary cooking style and traditional dishes originate from the Hakka culture with strong emphasis on using “wok hay”. (more…)

Best Laksa

As an avid noodle soup lover, there are certainly a lot of options to choose from in the Lower Mainland. On this occasion, I was craving for some Malaysian laksa and happened to come across Tamarind Hill in New Westminster. Both locations, this one and the North Vancouver one, offers a wide range of popular Malaysian dishes. (more…)


I stumbled upon another great find on SocialShopper. This time to Liquids + Solids Café for $10 which is worth $20 in value. The name of the restaurant does not sound alluring at all, but more importantly, the overall quality of their food was decent. Out of the three locations that they have, I chose to go to the West Broadway one as I found it to be the most convenient for me.
