A convenient walk from the West Coast train station in Port Coquitlam, Pho T&T is my favorite pho … Continue reading

Wine Review: Big House White

This is the type of wine you don’t mind doing time for! This wine from California is aromatic and sweet, and made with Malvasia Bianca, Muscat Canelli, Viognier, Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Gris, and White Riesling grapes. Quite the mix.

Whiffies Fried Pies – Portland

While on our trip to Portland last weekend, my hubby and I went on a mission to discover some unique food carts. In a city where there’s hundreds of food carts on the streets, we didn’t want the average Mexican or Gyro food cart.
