Without a doubt, I LUURVE food! But make no mistake, I am NOT a foodie, nor a gourmet, or any of those fancy words that implies I hold even the slightest sophistication when it comes to food. Simply put, I just love to eat it… I love to talk about it, I love to cook it, I love to look at it.
I. Love. Food.
A Vancouverite transplant into the BC Central Cariboo region, my original transition to the area was rather slow and painful when I realised that the variety of restaurants in my new home was rather… sad… for a lack of a better word. I was raised on homemade authentic cantonese cuisine, with a generous splash of vietnamese food on special occasions… now gone. As well, my regular intake of sushi and gomae are taken away! No more Friday late night bubble tea or Sunday morning congee either! It wasn’t too long until I found myself settled into a culinary world where status quo included Denny’s, McDonald’s, and western chinese food. I was stuck in an epicurian slump.
Then one day a patient of mine told me about ‘Burger Night’.
Every Friday night, she and her husband would frequent a new restaurant in town to try out their burgers and rate them. I thought that was ingenious! Then I thought about the many times that I have made the six hour drive to and from Vancouver, passing by numerous eateries only to never pay them any attention. How was I to know what I was missing? Only one way to find out. It is with high hopes that this blog will force me to try out these new restaurants and re-awaken my taste buds again.
This is a personal journal of the food I eat in areas outside of the Greater Vancouver Area and the surrounding Fraser Valley. I am NOT a professional-or can even claim to be an amateur-photographer. The pictures taken are done so with my trusty point-and-shoot digital. Hopefully they’ll still turn out well enough to entice everyone to try out these places!
