Closed for Renovations

On a walk in the old 'hood with the kid today, we strolled past Moderne Burger and Dan.  To my surprise, both restaurants are closed for renovations due to a fire in the store between them.  I hope they are up and running again soon!

Kiwi Pie Company has 2 pies for $6 on Monday and Tuesday

Barb and I tried the chicken and lamb pies from the Kiwi Pie Company (#2, 3337 Kingsway, 604 454-1914). Mmm. Two for $6 on Monday and Tuesdays, such a deal and $4 per pie after 4p.m. More later (including photos) when I get over my cold which probably won't be until Friday!

Teatriz Cafe now run by a former chef of Sun Sui Wah

Apparently (according to Jeni, whose family bought the Teatriz Cafe), the Teatriz Cafe in Richmond is no longer green (back in my Nortel Richmond days, we used to call it the "Green Place"). It's now yellow and the new owner is a former Sun Sui Wah chef. Check out my updated Mini-Review: Teatriz Cafe for the full scoop from Jeni. Cool. Going to have go to "The Yellow Place" and write an update.
