The Poke Guy

The Poke Guy is truly a poke shop with integrity in mind. They use high-quality rice that is comparable to Tamaki Gold. It is properly cooked to create that separate rice grains that are just a little sticky, but not lumped together. The fish are flavorful even without the sauce. They only use wild-caught, Ocean-Wise seafood, and the owner says they wouldn’t have it any other way. We highly recommended this place to any Poke lovers out there.

CHUN FUN HOW Vancouver (春芳號)

Chun Fun How is a very new tea house just opened in May 2020. They gave us such a wonderful experience similar, but different from the ones we got from Hanlin Tea House. From the beautiful cup, the flavour, and the texture of pearls, every aspect of the store are carefully crafted. This is a tea house with integrity, and we cannot recommend it enough.

Achino salted egg yolk and boba ice cream bar

Considering Archino is following the footstep of the Brown Sugar Milk Tea Boba Ice Cream Bar, we do not think this salted egg yolk & boba ice cream bar did well. Aside from the salted egg yolk flavour being unevenly distributed which made the flavour inconsistent, the boba’s texture also wasn’t very pleasant. It’s true that this is still a tasty ice cream bar which gives you a sweet and savory alternating taste. We just expected more for a $2 per pop ice cream bar.

eF & Be Bakehouse, authentic Japanese online bakery

Japanese call their buns “pans”. All of the items we got are not overly sweet and have a balanced flavour. I think the price is a little more expensive than most bakeries, but the quality of the baked goods really speaks for itself. We would advise anyone who hasn’t tried it to give it a try. The soft and chewy texture of the buns is what good buns should taste like.

Taiwan Eatery, Specialty chicken made by Cantonese

Is Taiwan Eatery a Taiwanese restaurant? Definitely not. But is it a restaurant that provides cheap good food? I think so. The best advice we can give the owner of Taiwan Eatery is that they should be more confident. Taiwan Eatery has great food, beautiful decor, and excellent service so they can definitely start their own Cantonese thing instead of labeling themselves with Taiwan. Even though the food tastes absolutely amazing, we cannot give a full 5-star review due to non-authentic Taiwanese food with the restuarant name like Taiwan Eatery.

Vancouver Croissant, How to get fresh-baked croissants at home

Vancouver Croissant’s ready-to-bake croissants are locally owned and use natural ingredients. Each box costs $15 for 6 croissants. This is very affordable compared to some of the other croissants that can be delivered to your home. I have personally seen others charging $40 for 6 croissants. These cheese croissants are very tasty and convenient. I can make 1 batch and my breakfast for the next 3 days is well taken care of.
