Review: Cedar Creek

I chose Cedar Creek for my birthday lunch based on a friend’s recommendation. He had been there for his own birthday a few weeks prior and said he couldn’t fault it. We locked in a booking of our own for a late lunch; a two course meal to be paired with wine.  On the day…

Review: Raudz

With the tagline ‘Kelowna’s Best Restaurant’ I think high expectations are a given for anyone visiting Raudz. I had picked it out as an extended birthday celebration, a special last night activity for Andy and I. I’m a huge fan of the concept of farm to table, as well as when places take pride in…

Craft breweries in Kelowna

As the main principality of the Okanagan (an area renowned for its climate and vineyards), I was definitely expecting Kelowna to have its fair share of wineries. It did, but I was pleasantly surprised at the number of craft breweries that were there too.  My favourite brewery was Rusty Reel. We had been searching for…

Review: Kissa Tanto

Thanks to my beautiful friends, I had plans to go to Kissa Tanto long before I had even heard of it, long before I had even arrived in Vancouver. For my birthday last year, I was given a voucher to Kissa Tanto, one of Vancouver’s superior Italian and Japanese fusion restaurants. Probably one of Vancouver’s…

Eating our way around Tofino

There is no denying that we ate like kings in Tofino. For such a small town, its food game is strong. I have a long list of places I want to visit in Tofino – this list features some, but definitely not all! I will continue to update this list whenever I go back to…

Food and drink in Victoria

While I haven’t spent enough time in Victoria to talk about ALL of the amazing restaurants, bars and cafes that British Columbia’s capital has to offer, I did my best. And it is the beginning of a list that I will hopefully be able to expand on each and every time I go back there….

Review: Fable Diner

Fable Diner was always on Andy’s radar, not necessarily mine. Time and time again he had suggested we visit there but my faith in the quality of diners isn’t the best, so I only wanted to go here when I was really in the mood. The perfect opportunity arose after we had spent the day…

Local cuisine in Gibson’s Landing

I must admit I never expected to be writing a food based post off the back of instructions from my dentist to consume mostly liquids with a slow migration to soft food over the coming days. Time to get creative! I’d heard great things about the quality of food and drink in Gibson’s and I…

Review: Timbertrain Coffee Roasters

Shout out to Timbertrain for providing the goods during lock-down! It took Andy and I a few weeks to venture out of the West End properly (all our walks kept us much closer to home, as advised by the provincial government) but eventually we made our way along into Gastown and the downtown area. The…

Eating my way around Italy

Pizza, pasta and gelato all jump to mind when I think of my favourite Italian food memories. Understandably. But Italy is so much more than that. Situated on the Mediteranan coast, Italy’s sunshine and warm climate brings with it mouth-watering olives, focaccia and cured meats. The coffee culture is unlike any other and of course,…
