Defected Fairy Bottle…

Guess what everyone, I’m still alive, and I’m here with a fairy in a bottle in order to revive this dead blog!

I have an entry planned (something I made while visiting my aunt in Michigan), but I will be busy over the next few days, so I’m not sure when I’ll have time to write this entry. It will come in time though, I can promise you this.

I will be heading back down to Michigan to spend Christmas with my aunt’s family, so I’m sure I’ll have more entries to write when the time comes.

Look forward to them!

Famoso – FAV’D – The hottest pizzeria

This post is part of FAV’D.
The previous FAV’D post is Ramen Jinya.

So much for one a day… I really don’t have an excuse for it. I was just lazy, and didn’t feel like writing this. Though this itself is an excuse…

Well, moving on…

After my meal at Ramen Jinya, we headed for waterfront, where the Olympic torch was since I’ve never seen the torch, yet. Can I just say that the Olympic torch was a lot more underwhelming than I had imagined/seen from other people’s pictures. I thought it was three times taller at least. This whale that I took a picture with was more interesting than the torch.

Ramen Jinya – FAV’D – My first meal in Vancouver

Here we are! Our first instalment of FAV’D. For those of you who missed my previous post about FAV’D, please do go check it out to have a better understanding of what this is.

Anyways, since I arrived on a Saturday night, I didn’t get to do much that day. The next day, my friends and I went to see the Chinese New Years Parade put on by Vancity bank (a week late, but meh). The parade was alright, but fun nonetheless. We were all starving, so we head out to my first proper meal in Vancouver after many many years.

They took me to a place called Ramen Jinya; it is located at 270 Robson Street Vancouver, BC V6B0E7.

FAV’D! – Food Across Vancouver (with) Daniel

EDIT: Clear one a day has proven to be impossible for me… I’ll post them ASAP… :’D

As some of you may know (the people that read my Nutella Cheesecake Cup post), I recently took a trip to Vancouver. During my stay in Vancouver, I stayed at Shiina Mint’s house, who doesn’t have wireless internet, so I couldn’t update the blog as often as I would like to. Also because I was out from early morning to late at night. But fear not! That is why this series will exist!

I shall call it… Food Across Vancouver with Daniel, or FAV’D (because we’re totally ignoring the w)

Every day(No, Daniel. You suck, so every day is not possible), I will have a new entry for a restaurants I’ve ate in Vancouver in chronological order. I will also talked about I’ve been doing in Vancouver up until the restaurant I am reviewing that post.

As I post a new entry about the restaurant, I will update this post with links for the restaurant as this post will act as the master post.

Here is the list of the restaurants that I will be writing about:
1. Ramen Jinya
2. Famoso
3. Tealips
4. Shiro Sushi
5. Gyo-O
6. Italian Kitchen
7. Mink
8. Banana Leaf
9. Thierry
10. Burgoo
11. 生活小館 (Estea)
12. Guu Garden
13. G-Men/Nanchuu Izakaya
14. Leisure
15. 好彩小廚 (Good Choice Restaurant)

I hope you will enjoy this mini-series and continue to follow my adventures in Vancouver!

Until next dine,
Daniel

Valens – Winterlicious, the full on experience

The last backlogged Winterlicious post is finally here! For my last Winterlicious of this season, I went to a restaurant called Valens. It’s located at 19 Baldwin Street Toronto, ON M5T 1L1.


I arrived 15 minutes early, and I was also the only one in the restaurant (excluding the employees). I studied the menu while waiting for my friends to arrive since I got nothing else better to do. The menu, like EDO’s, was wrinkled and used, but I didn’t mind that because the menus were temporary ones anyways. They also pre-poured water for every table even if they were empty; I guess they know they’re popular or something. The restaurant was really hot, and my friends said the same thing as they walked into the restaurant. It was also made apparent from all the ice in the water melting at record speed.
