San Antonio, Texas Food Adventures

Last month I went to San Antonio for a work trip – one of the first times travelling to Texas. I was told to eat as much meat as possible, as Texas was the land of BBQs. For the 3 days I was down there, I had my fair share of BBQs, steaks, brisket, and Tex-Mex food….

#Rudisglutenfree event at Las Margaritas

The other day I had the pleasure of attending an event where we talked about how more than 300,000 Canadians are thought to have Celiac Disease and that over 73,000 are children! Though I don’t follow a gluten-free diet – mainly because most products that label themselves “gluten-free” are filled with crap – I think…

La Gloria Market Bellingham

Recently we were visiting a local Blaine restaurant, The Hot Spot, when the owner recommended La Gloria Market / Restaurant in Bellingham to us. He mentioned that it was the only Mexican restaurant that he’s been to that is high quality and didn’t give him heartburn. Hey, if another restaurant owner is raving about La…

Antojitos Mexicanos Mayeli

I’ve been hanging out at the Burnaby Heights a lot lately. This time I was in the mood for Mexican food. The term that comes to mind when describing this restaurant is “comida casera” or “homemade”. I found the food tasty, but it lacked the presentation flare.   I also found that the prices were…

Playa Tropical Mexican Restaurant

I know, I know, another post about Mexican food. What can I say, it’s what I’m craving lately. I’ve heard really good things about this small Mexican restaurant in New West. I read Sherman’s review, and aside from him being my favourite food blogger, he has a reputation for telling it like it is. Looking at…

Patron Tacos and Cantina

Having dinner with @billyhur and @jminter is always a pleasure. This time we decided on a place close to their neck of the woods: Patron Tacos and Cantina. The location is ideal: Located on Robson St, this restaurant is steps away from Rogers Arena and BC Place Stadium. It’s pretty central from all the action…

New contest! Enter to win a $15 GC to Mucho Burrito!

Halloween is a time for ghost and ghouls and things that go bump in the night. Here in the West anyways. In Mexico, it’s a time to celebrate “El Dia de los Muertos” or the Day of the Dead. During that time, families in Mexico prepare a wonderful family feast, pack it up, and head…

Arturo’s Mexican to Go

Mexican food and summer just got together. So one sunny day I decided to check out Arturo’s Mexican to Go. This food truck is a veteran of the Vancouver street food scene. Arturo’s has been located on West Cordova, a block away from Waterfront Skytrain since 2010. Arturo’s recipe for success is a simple one:…
