Bread garden – Metrotown

Bread Garden is one of those places that graduately got forgotten over the years, and by chance boyfriend and I decided to drop-by one day for a coffee.

The interior is quite different from what I remember years ago. Fairly open space and fresh, with comfy chairs spaced out.

They still offer the same type of food from years ago, salads, pastas and desserts. They still have all the pastas pre-made and microwaved when an order is place. As for the dessert, I knew when I wanted before I check out their menu.

Which is the mango cheese cake :)! It still tastes the same and looks exactly the same as years ago, but for some reason I don’t find it as good as in my memory. Maybe my taste buds are more refined now ;P.

BG is one of those places that I am not sure that I will go back to, not because of how “bad” it is, but more because of how blend and non-remarking it is. Maybe in the future when they can reinvite themselves into something more remarkable, it will come back to my list of hang-out places!

Sunny day outing in Steveston Village, Richmond with Pajo’s & Sara’s

So for Easter Monday, me, my boyfriend and my sister decided to go out to Steveston Village, letting me take a break from studying/cramming for exams.

I used to come to Steveston all the time back in high school because both me and my sister used to work in the area. A lot of things has changed recently, such as pay parking in Lot 3, causing us to go and park at Lot 1, and a new spiffy crossing at the corner of Moncton and No. 1 Road.

Late-night dining at Duffin’s Donuts

Yes, I am quickly catching up on all the posts I left incomplete… Last weekend, I attended the UBC Dance Horizons and UBC A Capella‘s Y.E.S. (Year-End Show). It was awesome and I really recommend checking out both clubs if you are into singing or dancing, or like me would like to sit back and watch. Mad props to those who were on stage! I dragged out my boyfriend to this and he enjoyed it, especially the UBC A Capella groups.

Anyhow, after the show it was quite late and so to catch dinner, I decided to stop by Duffin’s Donuts on the corner of Knight St. and East 41st. It was very hard to manoeuvre into the parking lot because of all the road barriers. Luckily we quickly found parking, because there was a massive line-up inside even though it was already 10PM!

Sushi Garden – Both North and South locations!

Wow! Sorry for not posting in a while, final week of classes are intense! I might disappear for the next little bit as well because of finals and a long 3-week journey with Lilo & huneybear. Anyway, back to the post!

Sushi Garden! This is one of my favourite places for cheap and yummy sushi. It is owned by Koreans not Japanese people and the service mostly is good but they are always busy! In this review I’ll be talking about both locations.

A not so quick lunch date at Kingspark Steak House

Got out of classes early today so I decided to drag out a friend for lunch. One of her favourite restaurants is Kingspark in Richmond. It’s located on Westminister highway across from the Richmond Public Market. Be aware that the parking is actually quite limited in this area because there are about 3 restaurants sharing the strip mall.

Cheap and good tasting WINGS on Sunday!

It was recently a good friend’s birthday and so to celebrate, we decided to check out WINGS in Burnaby for their 39 cent wings on Sunday. The parking lot was tiny and very full, so we ended up parking on the side streets. Because it looked very packed, I didn’t actually take a picture of the outside since I was too busy trying to put my name down so that we could get a table! Luckily my fears were somewhat unfounded because even though they were really busy, we got a seat at a reasonable time. It seemed like non-stop people coming and going.

Celebrating with Cupcakes

So as a quick celebration to the end of a crazy week, me and a couple of classmates decided to check out Cupcakes on W. Broadway. Since it was only street pay-parking, we quickly went inside and bought some cupcakes to bring home.

Did you know that Cupcakes is by the ladies on the Cupcake Girls? There’s a giant advertisement on the box.
