Where is the bear?

I have been struggling to close this blog or not for a while. I was unable to update my blog and I felt bad leaving it around with no update for months. So many new blogs are out there now;  may be this blog doesn’t need to be there; may be I can never blog again…

Pho Han – Enjoy pho without MSG!

We were so excited when we discovered Pho Han last December. It was in Richmond and close to our home and work. There was a no MSG sign on the window and it’s another husband and wife team little germ.

Their menu is simple and covers the basic pho, vermicelli, rice plates and drinks.

Frenchies’ Classic Poutine

Oct 10, Monday – Sunny

It was Thanksgiving Day morning and I had a hair appointment in the area. Since a coworker from Quebec told me that he likes the poutine from Frenchies’ Diner, I went in for a quick bite.

The owner was very friendly, the door was open but the diner wasn’t officially open yet (it was before noon). He told me that he was bored from staying home so he decided to open the restaurant and get some cooking done.

Little Nest – brunch for the adults

After a visit to the Trout Lake Farmers Market, I met up with G at Little Nest near Commercial Drive for brunch. It’s relatively close to the market by bus. Since I arrived a bit early, I order my very much-needed morning coffee and grabbed a seat first.

It was back in August and I need something cold after my walk from the market with my heavy grocery basket. I ordered an Ice Americano. I really love that they use the letter blocks to track their orders. “S” was my first letter.

A Long Break

Sorry guys! I took a long break from my food blogging.

I was very busy with my trip to San Francisco, my half marathon run. And then it was getting back to regular life and catching up on flamenco classes.

Enough said. I will update my blog shortly (Just found 10 blog drafts started before my trip!). And stay tune for my San Francisco food updates! 🙂

This was my first half marathon and I was happy that I finished it. I got through the hilly and beautiful course of San Francisco. I felt good to be able to accomplish something and to fundraise for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Cheers!
