Rating 7/10
After hearing that Parker Place Meat and BBQ had "the best" BBQ pork in all of Vancouver, we had to head to Parker Place to check it out. It looked promising, as there was always a steady stream of customers - with the lineup seemingly never [...]

Warming up at Little Sheep Hot Pot

Posted by Mimimoza under Restaurants, Top Foodie Blog
I love hot pot in the fall/winter time. Cooking raw meat, dumplings and vegetables in a hearty broth one at a time warms you right to the soul.  And it feels pretty healthy, up until you dunk the freshly cooked meat into a sauce and fully coat it ... [...]
