Alleluia - large portion, cheap price


Alleluia (歡欣餐廳)

8131 Westminster Hwy, Richmond

Alleluia Cafe 歡欣餐廳 on Urbanspoon

Food: 3
Service: 2.5
Price: Cheap

Richmond is a place that I hate to love. I mean there is no question they have the best variety for food at any time of the hour, but on the other hand everything else just drives me crazy (pun intended). Seriously, who likes to play find a needle in the haystack game when it comes to parking, or navigate the tiny roads along side crappy drivers (not everyone). Despite all that rambling, you will still find me back there from time to time. I confess, I am  food addict. So I guess I will just have to keep enduring all of the above just to 'feed' my addiction :).

Anyway, back to the topic at hand. Our volleyball group of friends is once again back at it. This time we discovered a indoor volleyball court out on Mitchell Island near Richmond. So it's only natural, we head there for dinner afterwards.

Gadget Review - Cuisinart Waffle Maker


I been wanting a waffle maker for a long time, but then I am pretty sure it will be tossed aside once I've used it a couple times. So why did I end up buying one? Well, the reason was simple, you see I am huge fan of The Amazing Race, and one of the episode was filmed in Belgium, where they were making these delicious looking Belgium waffles. After that episode and my weakness for food, I immediately told R "we need a waffle maker". Low and behold, here it is... (hopefully I will use it often :P)

Cora - breakfast is what they do best


Cora Breakfast & Lunch

3025 Lougheed Hwy, Coquitlam

Cora Breakfast & Lunch on Urbanspoon

Food: 4
Service: 3.5
Price: Fair

Ever heard of the phrase "Breakfast is the most important meal of the day." Well, I couldn't agree more, that's why we decided on Cora for a late lunch at 3pm on Saturday. Truth be told, I been dying to try it ever since it opened, but I no longer live in Coquitlam, so I am never in the area. Finally the opportunity presented itself when I had to go to Port Moody for the day.

Yew - impressive decor, average food


Yew Restaurant and Bar

791 West Georgia St., Vancouver

YEW Restaurant + Bar (Four Seasons Hotel) on Urbanspoon

Food: 2.5
Service: 2.5
Price: Fair

Nowadays, brunch has become the favourite meal for family gathering. Why is that so, the reason is simple, everyone has plans for the weekend and they typically are in the afternoon till well into the nights. Therefore, it's only natural for families to gather during daytime on the weekends, thus nothing works better than brunch. In fact, I think dim sum would be Chinese people's brunch. :P
Yew restaurant is located in the Four Season Hotel. The decor is absolutely gorgeous.
