I will warn you in advance that I really loved this place and will not be cheap with the superlatives. It has been on my list for a long time but it is a solid hour's drive for us to get from Aldergrove to Kerrisdale even in Sunday morning traffic so we kind of often end up going to the places with shorter commutes.
We did a bit of a road trip to try to exorcise some of our range anxiety with our electric car. We purchased a 2020 Hyundai Ioniq 3 months ago and have really not gone any farther than Vancouver and back so far. We love the car not just for the fuel savings and the reduction in our carbon footprint but because it is quiet and comfortable and accelerates pretty impressively when we feel like showing off. Still, we felt the need to test its range a bit more.
There is something just exotic enough about green beans on a sandwich to send me out of my way to get it. Of course, we have had Churrascos before in Metro Vancouver but we were anxious to try them at Puro Chile on Denman.
In the space that was previously occupied by Holy Taco at the corner of 160th and Fraser Highway, Bayong Kitchen Filipino Eatery has appeared, apparently opened by the people who run Grandt Kitchen in Surrey.
Our pursuit of all the Birria Tacos in Metro Vancouver has finally brought us to Kyu Grill Food Truck. Since KG advertises itself as serving Hawaiian-Japanese fusion dishes, the birria on their menu took us by surprise! We had a bit of an issue finding them at a location we could get to but this past Saturday, they were set up on Bonson Road in Pitt Meadows. There were a couple of other trucks at that location forming a bit of a miniature food truck festival!
As of today, the subtle cheekiness and Filipino-inspired tasty eats of Shameless Buns will be available from their new forever home at 5772 Fraser Street in Vancouver! Don't panic though! The iconic and beautiful jeepney will still be out and about serving mostly the same treats! It's just that now you have 2 options!
Does it seem like we haven't been for dim sum in forever? The correct answer is 7 and 1/2 months but it feels like longer. Since we are dedicated dim sum fanatics, the reason for this dry spell is the on-again-off-again nature of the restaurant business these days. We have done our best to support local places but often this has been in the form of take-out. We were happy to find Spring Garden Chinese Seafood Restaurant in New Westminster and we were thankful that we landed here.
