Since we haven't been doing so great at writing restaurant reviews, I'm going to start writing even briefer reviews. La Buca (4025 MacDonald Street, 604.730.6988) is a simply decorated but smart looking restaurant in the middle of nowhere (OK it's in Dunbar but there ain't much there).

Dona Cata's tacos rock at $1.25 each

Finally tried Dona Cata's (5438 Victoria Drive, 604 236-2232) tacos. $1.25 each! The bargain of the century. My favourite was the al pastor. Flavourful pork with pineapple. Add a generous dollop of one of their delicious homemade salsas like the radioactive but tasty chipotle and you have heaven for less than a toonie! Highly recommended.

Raincity Grill's New Year's Day Brunch was fab!

Barb and I went on a rare "date" and we racked our brains as to where to go for lunch on a holiday like New Year's Day.

Inspired on my vision of back bone stew from Jang Mo Jib a while back, we figured Korean on Robson or Denman. But we ended up somewhere different.

Out of the corner of her eye, Barb spotted Raincity Grill and that it was open! We parked, and walked back and had a fabulous brunch.
