G-men Nan Chu – Richmond, British Columbia

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

I’m actually very confused about the name of this restaurant, but the name on the recipet says the restaurant is called Ramen Bar at NanChuu Japanese Izakaya, however it seems to be called G-men and you don’t see that name as the “dominate” name. We were brought here by my sister-in-law and her husband, and […]

Home Restaurant – Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Dutch Bakery and Diner – Victoria, British Columbia

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

We got up really early the morning we were driving home and found a place called Dutch Bakery and Diner which wasn’t too far from our hotel. We decided to try them, and it worked out great as street parking was free still when we went! We sat down and we were greeted by the […]

Barbs Fish and Chips – Victoria, British Columbia

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

While we were in Victoria, we decided to go find their wharf as often on weekends, I tell my husband “I want to go to the wharf to eat”, but sadly there’s none in Calgary. I liked out here when I said that as we found ourselves at their wharf with floating restaurants and we […]

Afternoon Tea: The Fairmont Empress Hotel – Victoria, British Columbia

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

We’ve been talking about having afternoon tea at all the Fairmont Hotels and when we got to stay at the Fairmont Empress in Victoria, we tried to join them for afternoon tea without a reservation as we had no idea what time the ferry would bring us in at. We were really luck and got […]

Fairmont Empress – Victoria, British Columbia

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

We decided to go to Victoria as I’ve never been there, so we decided to drive there which was quite a lengthy drive with a ferry ride, but it was definitely an awesome experience! We figured this is the only trip we will be taking here for the foreseeable future, so we decided to splurge […]

Super 8 – Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

During one of our driving trips to British Columbia, we wanted a quick sleep, so we stopped at Super 8 at Salmon Arm which is just off of the highway in a convenient location. Although the hotel is just off the highway and a railway going behind it, it wasn’t as noisy as expected. The […]

Hilltop Diner – Langley, British Columbia

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

On our drive to Vancouver, we’ve heard amazing stories and reviews about Hilltop Diner and also watched Food Networks You Gotta Eat Here come by this location – so we HAD to make a stop and visit this lovely establishment! Once we got a seat after a long wait as they’re very popular (and well […]

A&W – Salmon Arm, British Columbia

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

During one of our drives out to Vancouver, we had breakfast in Salmon Arm, and the only thing opened at our crazy hour was A&W which isn’t normally a fast food breakfast place we’d pick, but it was the only thing opened. We both ordered the same delicious breakfast combo, their Sausage N’Egger Combo on […]

Monday, April 6th, 2015

During our road trip to Vancouver, we decided to stay at the Castle in the City, Fairmont Hotel Vancouver and what a glorious stay it was! Although the hotel was undergoing some major renovations, it was still quite nice. The lobby wasn’t done yet, and one of the main reasons for our trip was the […]
