Review: Ba Le French Sandwiches

by gigi on January 29, 2008

One of Jenkins and my favourite places to go for Vietnamese subs is Ba Le right at the corner of Kingsway and Fraser.  We found out about this place a few years ago and it is a great place to go for cheap and delicious Vietnamese-style subs.  If you go between 12-1pm, it is usually […]


Wedding: Anna’s Cake House

by gigi on January 28, 2008

Right after our tasting at Sweet Obsessions, Jenkins and I headed over to the main Anna’s Cake House location, which is located at E. Broadway and Fraser.

Review: Ogenki Sushi Update

Jenkins and I stopped by at Ogenki Sushi for dinner one day.  I blogged about Ogenki in one of my first Ho Yummy posts and it is one of Jenkins’ and my favourite places for sushi in Vancouver.  We saw that they had a slight menu change since the last time we were there and […]


Review: King Yo

by gigi on January 21, 2008

Derek has been urging me to go visit King Yo, a new izakaya restaurant that has popped up on Denman St.  According to him, it was recently rated as one of the top Canadian restaurants for 2007 in a food magazine.  To tell you the truth, I rarely venture to Denman St because it’s always […]
