Faubourg - beautiful location

0 Comments

Faubourg

769 Hornby Street, Vancouver

Faubourg on Urbanspoon

Food: 3.5
Price: Fair

Okay, so I have been MIA for way too long. As I mentioned in the news section, I have entering another chapter of my life: being a mother. It was pretty tough in the beginning with lots of challenges, but we got through it all (remember all new mommies, it will get better as they grow older, so hang in there ^^). Now my baby is 5 month old, and I am finally finding some time to myself, so I guess I will get back to blogging. This blog will probably change from it's usual food/travel to everything about life, I hope you will continue to enjoy it. Once again, thanks for reading :).

Faubourg has also been on my go-to list for dessert, but most times it's just too out of the way for us. So when I heard they opened a new downtown location, I was pretty happy.

R and I were racking our brain for a good restaurant to bring our oversea guest to try. It had to be something more special than just ramen (tons in Asia) or simple west coast cuisine. After a short search, we decided on a certified Neapolitan Pizzeria in Gastown due to its convenient location for our guest and raving reviews.

Spaghetei - spaghetti with a Japanese twist

Spaghetei すぱげっ亭 on Urbanspoon

Food: 3.5
Service: 3.5
Price: Fair

Spaghetei has been on my radar for awhile, the reason I haven't tried it is because I heard two opposite opinions about this place: one highly recommend it, while the other thought the food was average. R has always been a fan of Yoshoku restaurant, which serves western-influenced Japanese dishes, so finally we decided to check it out for ourselves.
