No stall too small!
Chinatown, at the crossroads of new development and old way of life. Some might steer clear of it because of how sketchy it seems, and I’ll admit it isn’t the prettiest place, but it does have its charm. Where else can you find some pretty good Chinese baked goods (when you’re already downtown)? While looking at Hon’s menu and the strange flea market attached to it, I noticed a newer looking bakery across the street, Sun Fresh.
Oahu is one of the most built up and developed Hawaiian Islands. With so much to do and see, it can be a bit overwhelming to know where to even start! As such, I’m hoping that by the end of this post, you’ll have a better idea of all the different kinds of activities to choose from on the island!
A ways back, I visited Donair Dude’s location on Davie St. and I was ASTONISHED by the sheer portions and flavours backed into such a good deal! After hearing about it as well, Lil’ L and I ventured out to their new location down on Granville St. to see if they live up to the original’s name!
Being the incredibly lucky person I am, I somehow came down with the Stomach Flu on Canada Day (best way to celebrate, right?). So after a week of nothing but bland, plain food, I was ecstatic to hear about a relatively well priced noodle joint! Located on Fraser St., not too far from another amazing noodle place (Deer Garden Signatures), Yu Xiang Yuan was the destination of today’s adventure!
The time has come….TO REVIEW THEIR WINGS! I tried it once YEARS ago, but due to the vast expanse of time since then, I deemed it time for a second try! Although the milk tea came out in a flash, like last time, it took a heck of a long time for the wings to actually arrive…(slow as molasses!)
I know I typically visit restaurants in the cheaper range, but today’s visit is an exception! Today, we head out to Pink Peppercorn Seafood House on Kingsway for a swanky feast! If this means anything to you, this joint is owned by the guy who used to run “The Cannery” restaurant that used to be at the end of Victoria Drive near the cranes in downtown.
After our short jaunt to Mango Thai, Foreveryeung and I decided to visit the little crepe place adjacent to Konbinya on Robson to try some of their Matcha Soft Serve. It was a wee bit slow at first due to the fact the owner runs back and forth between the in store counter and the outside window.
Maybe I’m blind, or just haven’t been looking hard enough, but I haven’t seen THAT many Thai places around. The ones I have seen have been in the more expensive range so when I stumbled upon this little joint on Urbanspoon, I was elated, to say the least! Accompanied by Foreveryeung, we headed deep into hipster territory in search of Mango Thai.
