Just a very quick and simple blog post today in which I turn to you, my trusted reader to answer my question. That question is, where in Metro Vancouver can a bloke get a walloping big slice of deep dish apple pie? That’s it. Where can I get some apple pie?
Countless times I have driven by Jules Cafe on the corner of Rumble and Royal Oak Ave in south Burnaby. Countless times I have looked in and wished I had time to stop for a taste. Today I took the time to stop and have a taste. Let me say, I was not disappointed by [...]
Today we headed over to the North Shore to visit the Maplewood Farm on old Dollarton Highway and to cash in a coupon I received via Twitter for Siegel’s Bagel’s new retail storefront, Rosemary Rocksalt. Maplewood Farms…meh. Glad we visited but I doubt that we would ever return. Far too many up-sell items that make [...]
I had a client lunch meeting in uptown New Westminster today and we agreed to meet at Okonomi Sushi on 6th Street. I am glad we did. For those who know New West, Okonomi Sushi is in the place that housed The Orange Room. It is a great room, comfortable with a classy but not [...]

Take for example when I was a vegetarian (I was not what you would call a strict vegetarian, I just didn’t eat mammal flesh). When I told people I was a vegetarian they were immediately concerned about my health [...]
Simple question for you, what is your favourite fast food burger joint? Forget about those $100 burgers made with fois gras or beef raised in the wild by drunken monkeys and any of that fancy schmancy stuff, just a simple question, what is your fast food burger joint of choice? To begin the discussion, I [...]
The Lucky Gate restaurant (best northern Chinese food in town; according to their menu) is located in a kind of nondescript, rundown block of Austin Avenue in Coquitlam. And, the fact of the matter is, they make some of the best Chinese food I have had out here in the burbs. For lunch today my [...]
Over the weekend we headed out to the Vancouver suburb of Richmond, Aberdeen Centre to be precise for lunch. While there, we had lunch at Shanghai-Shanghai in the food court. My girls were mesmerized watching the young lady behind the counter making dumplings from start to finish.
