Anton's Pasta Bar

4260 E. Hastings St (North Burnaby)
Burnaby, BC V5K 1A1
Tel: (604) 299-6636

It wasn't my first time here but I hadn't eaten here in over a year so I thought I might revisit it. This place is known for the massive lineups and massive portions of food. The service was just okay. Going after 8:00 pm can get you a seat without much waiting. I'll probably come back to try a different dish, I remembered the red-sauced pastas tasted better...

Service: Interior Atmosphere: Pricing:

Fettucine Alfredo $ 14.95
A cream parmesan cheese sauce with capicollo ham
This had too much black pepper, the capicollo ham was a nice touch. It seemed like a blend between the traditional Fettucine Alfredo and Carbonara.

Linguine alla Vongole $14.95
Clams in a clear white wine sauce
It had way too much black pepper in it :( and it did not have enough clams. I won't order this one again :(

Tiramisu $5?
Mild coffee-tasting, light, spongey cake. One of the better ones I've had in a restaurant in Vancouver.

Kim Ga Nae Korean BBQ

4260 No. 3 Rd #180 (Near Aberdeen)
Richmond, BC V6X2C2
Tel: (604) 273-4747

Other things worth mentioning are the pork neck and chicken. You can also order squid, onions, carrots, mushrooms to bbq with your meat.

The appetizers and side orders included that are worth eating would be the Jap Chae, Seafood Pancake, and the Tofu Egg Soup! (I'm not a fan of Kimchi or Bimbimbap so I have don't have any comment about those) The price for lunch is super worth it, the dinner price is okay, I think it was like $21.

I'll definitely come back! This is one of the best Korean BBQ All You Can Eat places I've had.

Service: Interior Atmosphere: Pricing:

All You Can Eat Korean BBQ $12.95 lunch
Delicious BBQ Short Ribs!!!
These babies are the only thing you need to order in terms of meat, they're SO GOOD!

Phnom Penh 金邊小館

244 E. Georgia St. (Chinatown)
Vancouver, BC V6A 1Z7
Tel: (604) 682 - 5777

This place is super famous and won a lot of awards (that you can see near the entrance) - none for good customer service. This is definitely one of those places that only have good food and nothing else... Its super busy and crowded usually. I've tried their normal pho noodles and they're alright. Make a reservation if you're coming with a party of 5 or more.

Service: Interior Atmosphere: Pricing:

Phnom Penh Deep Fried Chicken Wings $7.95 / $12.50
Very delicious! Salty, sweet, sour, spicy. They're very famous for this particular dish!

Phnom Penh Curry Chicken Hot Pot $13.50
Tasty, goes best with rice. Chicken meat is particularly yummy! Last time I had it, it was a bit on the watery side.

Marinated Butter Beef $12.85
I think this is my favourite thing here, its like a beef carpaccio. Don't let the red scare you!

Phnom Penh Two Kinds of Noodle (No Broth) $7.25
(Cambodian style)
This was just meh :\ its got egg noodle and rice noodle in it.

Trieu Chau Fried Oyster Cake $14.50
Very chewy and big. I think I've had better ones though elsewhere for less $$.

Deep Fried Spring Rolls
These were okay, like every other place.

The Secret Garden Tea Co.

5559 W. Boulevard,
Vancouver, BC V6M 3W6
Tel: (604) 261-3070

This place is very quaint and cozy. Everyone's seated at tables eating miniature pastries and desserts and sipping tea. There's a large variety of teas you can get, I tried the Creamy Earl Grey and it was really delicious! They have several High Tea options for you, and it really depends on how much food you want and how extravagant you want to be because High Tea is $25.95/person. Each pastry is snack size, about 2 inches big, but each is delicious! :) Plan to sit there, drink, nibble, and pleasantly chat with your girl friends (or boy friends) for the rest of the afternoon.

Service: Interior Atmosphere: Pricing:

Creamy Earl Grey
Bestseller! Bergamot & Vanilla.
This was indeed very good! I could drink this forever. I never knew tea could taste creamy, without adding any cream. I didn't even add any sugar either. This is SO GOOD!


My plate of snacks.

Heart-shaped cucumber sandwiches, mini scone, mini croissant delicious!

The 2-tier rack that your desserts will be delivered in.

Chocolate Surprise


Overly sweet..

Mini Carrot Cake
