Kyle and I were first introduced to Arms Reach Bistro back in 2013, right before we headed off for our epic six month Southeast Asia trip.

His Take: The Shebeen and Irish Heather in Gastown

Of all of the places that I’ve ever travelled, the British Isles and Ireland have to be the homiest. Maybe it’s because Canadian culture is so closely tied to British and Irish heritage, but stepping off the plane into Heathrow or Dublin Airport feels like you’re coming home from an extended vacation. For those of us with British and Irish ... Read More »

Her Take: $3.50 Beer and Unpretentiousness at Gringo Restaurant

Kyle and I stumbled upon Gringo restaurant one rainy Saturday afternoon in Vancouver, with the intention of sitting down for a few tacos and good conversation.

His Take: Wind Down the Night at Gringo in Blood Alley

His Take: Wind Down the Night at Gringo in Blood Alley

A lot of the restaurants that Jamie and I have recommended over the past few years have been stand-outs in a culinary sense. I wouldn’t be surprised if the good majority of our friends, who know us quite well, would have assumed that we were quickly becoming – God forbid – foodies. I hate that word, with a vengeance. It’s ... Read More »

His Take: Malaysia’s Mouthwatering and Dirt Cheap Food

Prior to leaving Thailand, the country of Malaysia was a bit of a mystery to Jamie and I. We knew that the Perentian Islands (just off the east coast of peninsular Malaysia) were a big draw, but they also happened to be closed at the time we would be visiting due to the monsoon season.

Her Take: Devouring Delicious Food in Vietnam

The minute we sat down at our first restaurant in Vietnam and devoured a massive bowl of pho, I knew we were in for a few tantalizing treats for this leg of the journey.

His Take: Crazy Addictive Korean Tapas at Oddseoul on Ossington

If Hal from Breaking Bad decided to cook incredible Korean tapas instead of the purest form of meth that he could concoct – that would be just as addictive – he would have opened Oddseoul on Ossington. It is almost impossible to describe how perfectly tasty just about every single dish at Oddseoul is. So I won’t. All that I ... Read More »
