Review: Late Lunch at The Boss

by gigi on March 9, 2009

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 […]


Review: Alleluia Cafe

It was Valentine’s Day so Jenkins and I went to Alleluia Cafe.    Alleluia is a Hong Kong-style cafe in Richmond that is well-known for their cheap and tasty dishes.  We had only been here once before and had enjoyed it a lot but because of its long line-ups, we never ventured back.  I guess […]

Review: Pittsburgh Cafe

by gigi on July 24, 2007

I went with John and Louis today to the Pittsburgh Cafe at Crystal Mall in Burnaby. It is actually spelled “Pittsburg” but I am a stickler for spelling so I refuse to spell something wrong on purpose, even if it was spelled incorrectly on a sign. It is a Hong Kong-style cafe that serves a […]
