Review: Golden Pita Restaurant

by gigi on February 11, 2011

Ned had been telling me about his in-laws’ Lebanese restaurant for quite a while now but it was difficult to find a time when we were both free to go there for lunch. With a little bit of pre-planning, we were able to find a time that worked for us and Matt was able to […]

It was only my second time attending an event such as this and I had the opportunity to meet other bloggers in the Vancouver area, including Kevin from 604 Foodtography, Jessica and her boyfriend from Yum-O-Rama, Kim from I’m […]
