PIZZA PIZZA!!!

PIZZA PIZZA!!!

A few weeks ago we found out how passionate some people are about Pizza Pizza . On Friday while checking out the Burnaby store at 7348 Kingsway, I was treated to four time world champion pizza spinner Juan Hermosillo just killin' it on the sidewalk.

It's a given that us Vancouver folk are big time sushi fans. We all have our usual haunts, of course: Tanpopo, Alfa on Richards, Yuji's, Sushi Bar on W.4th, Toshi on Main and 16th....

ONCE IN A WHILE SLOP - LA TAQUERIA

It has been a minute since I have posted on VIA but that is because I haven't had much to rave about till now. Blogging about restaurants can get very boring when you are eating meals that you would just call average. Mediocre food is easy to find.

Hey, did you know that Grouse Mountain will be open to skiing/snowboarding and eating 24/7 during the Olympics? The mountain and it's eateries will be open around the clock so you could be chomping poutine off of a tray with a chocolate milk at 3:30A

FOOD FAIR FRIDAY: CRYSTAL MALL!

If you can't find something to eat at Crystal Mall , you are rather slow, or just hate Chinese food. Next to a couple places out in Richmond, nothing matches the variety of Asian cuisine at Crystal Mall.
