Chow Times - another great Vancouver food blog

The Chow Times (RSS feed is here if you wish to subscribe) is another great Vancouver food blog. It covers a lot of the suburbs which is fab since Barb and I don't have the time to go to Burnaby, Richmond, etc. to cover their burgeoning food scene.


Industrial Brand's Food Blog

[UPDATE] Mark Busse of Industrial Brand Creative pointed out in an email that the actual name of the blog is actually In the Kitchen, not "Industrial Brand's Food Blog"! Apologies for the inaccurate naming!

Lan's Restarant - first visit was excellent

A few weeks ago, for an off site company gathering we tried Lan's Vietnamese restaurant (1481 West Broadway, 604) 738-2338) for a very late lunch. Wow! We were too tired to think and just ordered the dinner for four for $38 and it was fabulous.  Lots of spicy and flavourful food (lemon grass pork, spicy soup, chicken and more!). More than enough for four. Definitely will be back.

Nuba alive and kicking out delicious food in 2006

I haven't been to Nuba (322 West Hastings, 604 688-1655) too often lately for some strange reason. Probably due to my obsession with Korean food and the fact that I no longer work in Gastown. Anyways, I am chuffed to see that 2 years after opening, Nuba is alive and well and now open until 8p.m. and 12 to 5p.m. on Saturdays. Excellent, I hope to do a full mini-review soon as well as a videoblog with them. Highly recommended in 2006!
