Remember the delicious pizzeria/focacceria that Jenkins and I visited in Vernazza that I couldn’t remember the name of?

Jenkins and I were doing some grocery shopping in Chinatown one day and stopped at The Boss for a late lunch. The Boss is a Hong Kong-style restaurant but also has a bakery in front. Although I believe this Chinatown location is the original one, there is also another located in Metrotown. We had decided […]
