Review: Salt Tasting Room

by gigi on October 30, 2007

Mabel, Christina, Sashi, and I went to the Salt Tasting Room one day after work to celebrate Christina’s birthday. It is a funky new “restaurant” right in Blood Alley in Gastown. There is no real address per se, but the map provided on their website is pretty helpful. The restaurant entrance is indicated by a […]


Review: Mi Mexico in Bellingham

by gigi on October 29, 2007

With the Canadian dollar being so favourable compared to the US$ these days, Jenkins and I made yet another trip down to Bellingham. It is so close and there are enough stores to occupy us for an afternoon. We are also too lazy to drive all the way to Seattle. We normally drive back to […]

Review: Sweet Obsessions

It was Isabel’s & Meghan’s birthdays coming up so we had an advance birthday cake for them. Their mom bought it from Sweet Obsessions in Kits, which is one of my favourite dessert places. It is right next to Trafalgar’s Bistro at 2603 W. 16th Ave. I believe it is actually owned by the same […]


Review: Grillage BBQ

by gigi on October 19, 2007

A bunch of us met up for dinner one day at Grillage BBQ. It is a Thai place 3885 Rupert St right by E. 23rd Ave. Derek had been giving it rave reviews for the longest time, so we figured we should check it out and see what the fuss was all about. Before we […]
