What we drank: Cappuccino ($4.00) and Ethiopian Pour Over with grains of paradise spice, orange zest and sugar syrup This has got to be the prettiest cappuccino I’ve ever seen! It was not bad, but the espresso they used had a pretty acidic profile and that just doesn’t really work for me. The specialty pour over was pretty to look at, but again, just not … Continue reading Quantum Coffee

What we ate: Sunny’s Matcha … Continue reading Chez Christophe Chocolaterie Patisserie

This get together was months in the making and it was a perfectly relaxed night of wine and good food. What we ate: Bread and Butter – matchstick sourdough, house cultured butter ($4.00) … Continue reading Merchant’s Workshop
Aburi sushi is one of my favourite things to eat in the whole world. If I had to choose one thing to eat for the rest of my life… aburi sushi would be it. When M suggested this Yaletown establishment for our dinner, I was more than down to check it out. We sat outside on the patio (because natural light), but I would probably … Continue reading Bistro Sakana
