A little different today. A local Vancouver company, foodee, sent me this box of healthy snacks. Initially I thought there's no way this stuff is good but actually everything except one is quite good and I would eat it over the "unhealthy" alternatives.

If you guys want, I'm running a contest to win one. Easy entry...just follow on Twitter and like on Facebook.

New blog post: Snackbox by Foodee + Contest!

Oh right, I posted a restaurant review for The Portside Pub in Gastown over at Vancity Buzz. Here's some pics:

Giving more food away! I've got two crates of Risottoballs to give to a couple of readers. If they're anything like the box I got, it's a cooler with 7 boxes of Risottoballs inside. Easy to enter (follow/like on Facebook/Twitter + share/tweet).

Blog post here: Moccia Urbani Risottoballs + Contest!

After a bit of a hiatus, I've got tons of restaurant reviews to post, including some that I went to on the island last week when I was over there.

New blog post: Hump Day Quickie: Stonestreet Cafe ? Sidney, BC

Well, the post was about GyuDon Ya, which I didn't like. I mention I do enjoy Yoshinoya but not as much as some other Japanese fast food joints in Tokyo.

Oh, thought you meant you were not a big fan of Yoshinoya from your blog.

Just chilling in HK now and the Yoshinoya here is pretty good lol especially their late-night hot pots

And yes, I know your post was about GyuDon Ya :

Yoshinoya just never stood out to me, probably because I usually go to Japan in the summer when it's too f'n hot out and all I want to eat is cold noodles. I can't remember the name of the chain I went to all the time but it was like 900 yen for a tempura don and a serving of zaru udon. That place was my favorite cheap eat.

And 680 yen for a chicken karrage don set at this place where you get a ticket out of a vending machine and some old man brings you your order. Add 100 yen for some fried squid or some edamame!

Three updates this week!? What's going on?

Went to Marutama Ramen (in the Ramen District) with some RS folks the other night. Full post over at Vancity Buzz.

Want donuts as good as Cartems? Want to try the cronut craze that's swept Brooklyn? There's a spot on the island right off the ferry that sells stuff like this for pennies. No, seriously...apple fritters the size of your face for 75 cents. It's cheaper than Tim Hortons and, as much as it's Canadian blasphemy to say, it's just so much better.

Not sure how helpful I'd be. Are you looking for authentic Mexican or tex-mex?

I value balance in my food and find that too many Tex-Mex places just cover everything in cheese and call it a day. Not my bag...same reason I love burgers and love bacon more but I have zero desire to eat a baconator.

I fucking love La Taqueria though.

Couple other things: Nosh, reviewed above is now closed and will reopen as a new branch of Salt Tasting Room. I'm told the people that work there might be the same and the menu is mostly retained? Dunno...will check again.

Went back to Longtail Kitchen today, also reviewed above, and it's still stupid awesome. All six people at the agreed. Chicken wings, coconut soup, fried oysters, pad Thai, roasted Thai hen, papaya salad, chicken satays, and a round of Thai iced tea for less than $20 a person. We were stuffed with leftovers.

You're welcome!

If you go, say hi to Chef Justin and tell him Ed recommended his restaurant.

Went on a tour of "The East Village" (er...Hastings-Sunrise) a couple weeks ago for Vancity Buzz. Dropped by Campagnolo Roma and Kessel & March for food and Parallel 49 for beers!

How is parallel 49? I've been wanting to go for a while now but didnt know what their tasting menus etc were like? Is it all just a brewery or do they have food as well?

I didn't want to eat at just any fish and chips place in London...I had to search for the best fish and chips place in London, which just might be Kerbisher & Malt in Hammersmith.

Fun fact: 7 years ago, I met Top Gear's James May at a Tesco a few blocks away from here.

New blog post: Kerbisher & Malt ? London, England
