Ichimi Sushi (Brentwood)

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Ichimi Sushi is a small little sushi stand in Brentwood Mall located on the 2nd floor directly across the atrium from the main food court.  I’ve often thought about trying them out but keep forgetting to because it’s separate from all of the other food stalls in the mall. When I walked by the other [...]

Joey Burnaby – Finger Food

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
We were impressed with the food that we had at Joey Broadway recently so we decided to try out their Burnaby location.  Of course, the hardest part was trying to find where they are… we had a general idea that they were in the same large complex that houses the Save-on-Foods on Lougheed Hwy but we [...]

Reflect Social Dining + Lounge

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
The Sunday Brunch at Reflect Social Dining + Lounge is one of our favourites for the sheer amount of variety that you get with your meal.  The price is a bit expensive at $32.95 per person but it does include champagne mimosas.  If you can get past the horrors of parking at Crystal Mall, you [...]

Curry King Cafe

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
I’ve often seen the bright neon sign for Curry King Cafe whenever I drive by Kingsway but have hesitated to go in because, quite frankly, I’ve never thought of Chinese restaurants as capable of producing tasty curry.  Fortunately, Curry King is more of a HK style cafe that draws influences from Malaysian and Thai cuisine. [...]

Simba’s Grill (Edmonds)

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
I had a tough time getting to Simba’s Grill the other day… and I was only a few minutes away.  But with all of the road work, contruction, plus accidents on Canada Way and on one of the bridges, traffic down Edmonds was pretty hectic. I decided to turn off the main road and take [...]

Curry Express (Metrotown)

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Curry Express is exactly what the name implies… you get quick curry items when you need it the most.  The problem is that the food isn’t the most authentic that it can be.  Still, when every other stall is serving burgers or sweet and sour pork, it’s a nice change having other ethnic choices at [...]

A&W (Metrotown) – Fiesta Mama Burger

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
What’s your favourite A&W burger?  The Teen Burger?  The Papa Burger?  Every now and again, they come out with a special burger like the Fiesta Mama Burger (which is similar to their Spicy Mama Burger). The Fiesta Mama Burger comes with lettuce, tomato, cheese, jalepenos and spicy “fiesta” sauce for $2.50. Instead of the usual [...]

Arby’s (Metrotown) – Great Canadian Sandwich

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Arby’s is a nice alternative when you’re looking for fast food but something other than regular burgers.  I like how they have a lot of different sides… baked potato, mozzarella sticks, jalapeno poppers, potato cakes, and shakes. And who can resist thinly-sliced, oven-roasted beef? The Great Canadian Sandwich comes topped with lettuce, tomato, red onion, [...]

Makoto Japanese Restaurant

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Makoto is a nice little sushi shop in Burnaby that I haven’t been to for years.  I forget why I stopped going here… maybe it’s because they only accept cash (or debit). We started with their signature Makoto Roll which comes with cucumber, crab meat, and unagi rolled up and topped with prawn and orange [...]

Bronco Belle (Brentwood Mall)

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Bronco Belle in Brentwood Mall serves up a lot of different grilled meats including beef, chicken, bison, wild boar, kangaroo, and camel… Really?  Camel??  Despite my curiosity, we went with the BBQ Chicken Sticks Plate that comes with rice and salad. The chicken was okay but the skewers that we had at GoodAh Grill in Richmond [...]
