UBC EATS: SHAVED ICE AT CHEF HUNG

4/5

I am super surprised I have never had shaved ice like this. It's really good!!! Super soft and pillowery. Very delicious.


I got pearls as the side and it was a fabulous choice (yup yup it was)

Would definitely order again.

HARRISON EATS - Village Pizzeria







































4.5/5  [this restaurant do not offer slices]  [They do not have a washroom]


After seeing so many shining reviews of this place, I had to check it out! Detective me on the move.
Oh man, their pizza is really good. I ordered a Thai Spicy Chicken Pizza (Just a small one which was $14) and it was amazing. Just the right amount of spicy, loads of chicken and so much flavor.

They make each pizza fresh, and the crust is relatively thin.

I really, really enjoyed it, highly recommend it and would definitely go back.


yuuuummmmmmmmyyyyyy

HAPPY HOUR AT GYOZA BAR

3/5

When this place first opened, there was so much hype. Line ups out the door. Then people slowly started to criticize it (to sound cultured? too much expectations? The place really is terrible? I'll be the judge). Now that the wave of interest has passed, I finally got the chance to try it.


The interior is nicely done *clap clap*. Rustic with high ceilings. 

(Photo credit to S)

At happy hour, 5 pieces of Gyoza & a drink (in this case, a hard lemonade) was priced at $10, which is reasonable enough. You can also just get 5 gyozas for $5. 

My friends seemed to enjoy the gyozas (I didn't try one because I didn't feel like eating pork that day - on of those picky days SORRY! ) However, I did try Harissa Tofu + Kabocha which most thought it tasted a little odd, I thought it was aight, not something I would order again. Reminded me of a samosa somehow. 



Being the edgy person I am (no), tried one of the free range chicken ramens 


Good but mAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNNNNNN the broth was salty. Very very thick broth that tasted like the ocean but not in a goodway. The noodles were aight. The corn was a questionable addition.  2/5 will not order again unless they add at least one cup of hot water. JESUS THE SALT 

The bowl is super cute though, looked like a peach. 

The service was great, super attentive and really nice. They didn't have many people there at Happy hour. 


I think the pork gyozas may be worth a try. Beware of the salt of the ramen You have been warned.

Restaurant Review - NANDO'S KERRISDALE

3/5


I haven't been to this location's Nando's for years. This Nando's is extremely family friendly (which is a nice way of saying there was a bawling child at the booth next to us.)

As usual, I ordered the Haloumi burger (One of their vegetarian dishes. Haloumi is a type of cheese that is very light) with a side of rice. The rice was a little bit stale (Still pretty good though)

The burger itself was really good. 



Would I come back to this location? Probably not, simply because it's quite dark inside for something that's not a pub.


Oh, one last thing, their bread is very chewy.  Get your jaw ready.

Restaurant Review - Small Victory Bakery


Gorgeous cup, Defalt non-sweet.

4.5/5


Walking into Small Victory, I am welcomed by a very bright and open space. The interior is super cute with gold accents. It's the perfect place to have a coffee and chat, whether it's for catching up with someone or even casual meetings. Sophia, the community manager of Zomato kindly invited me here and I'm so glad she chose this place- it's been on my list for months!

We got the Wagon Wheel which reminded me so much of a Tim Tam (Holla Aussies). It was a little hard to cut into but oh MAN was it worth the effort. Super delicious with a crispy layer on the inside. Would definitely recommend.

Next we tried the Salted Caramel Cheesecake, which is, again, absolutely delicious. Good texture, fantastic with a cup of tea or coffee.

I got the Matcha Latte which was very pretty but the flavor was not as strong as I would have hoped for (REAAALLLY need to check out Basho soon). Would love to try their coffee next!

Restaurant Review - Deutsches Haus at the Vancouver Alpen Club


3/5    [Lots of parking]

So, my dad went here recently and really liked their pork Hocks. So he brought my mom and I here on a thursday where they have the special - Pork Hock for $12.99 (comes with sauerkraut) I wasn't feeling hock-y so I got the chicken pasta instead. This was a mistake.

First of all, it took absolutely ages to get here. About 45 minutes I would say. Which is too long. Then everything was way too salty. And the pasta was a little overcooked. Why did I order italian food at a german place? My mistake. The sausages in the pasta was unappetizing. The only decent part was the chicken.

My mom said that her pork hock was very well marinated and delicious. Which is good. The boiled potatoes were good.



Looks good, tastes salty


Overall, the interior is very humble and I really loved the atmosphere. The service is good. There were many people dining and having a really good time. It is extremely busy on thursdays so I would recommend booking a table.


It's definitely worth trying. Maaaaybe just not the pasta. ;)
