Review: Pho Thai Hoa (Collingwood)

by gigi on February 22, 2012

I happened to be working out of our Burnaby office one day and was able to meet up with Christina and Mabel for lunch. It happened to be a nice day so we took advantage of the opportunity to stroll over to the new location of Pho Thai Hoa at a little strip mall close […]


Review: Tony’s Beef Noodle

by gigi on January 31, 2012

Having grown up in and around the Oakridge area, I’d often noticed Tony’s Beef Noodle right across the street from Oakridge Mall but for some reason, I never ventured inside.

Located right in Cambie Village, Copa Cafe is in quite a convenient location for me and Jenkins. We’ve been going there since it opened a few years ago during the Canada Line construction but only learned recently that it was a spin off of a Coquitlam location. It had been a while since I had […]
