Josephine Filipino Food 23Nov051

Tempo Doeloe in Amsterdam

I recently spent some time on business in Amsterdam and enjoyed the Indonesian food at Tempo Doeloe (Utrechtsestraat 75 1017 VJ Amsterdam, telephone: 020-625 67 18, reservations REQUIRED, very small restaurant and you have to ring a bell to get in!).

My favourite breakfast and brunch = Dim Sum or Congee

The places mentioned in this piece are great (read the whole thing at TasteOf604 to find out where!), but my favourite breakfast or brunch is either dim sum (e.g. at Spicy Court or Sun Sui Wah) or congee at a place like The Boss in Chinatown. What's yours?

First SPUD Delivery

Since the East Van Farmers Market ended, we've been thinking about signing up with SPUD to have organic produce delivered. I've been finding it just too easy to pick up conventional produce rather than going out of my way to buy organic. I finally got around to signing up and ordering and today we received our first order. I'm throroughly impressed!


Sciue's Pasta e Fagioli Soup is amazing

Yummy bean and noodle soup at Sciue

Sciue's (110-800 Pender at Howe) Pasta e Fagioli Soup is amazing; lots of flavour (in particular umami!), and depth. More later on this promising 3 week old restauant!

Heather and Andrew's Boboti

Progressive Dinner 04Nov05 - 2

Check out Heather and Andrew's Boboti from our progressive dinner last Friday!


Java Jazz is a "real" restaurant and serves Filipino food but it's in New West

In response to my plea for "real" (with table service) Filipino restaurants, SaabKen once more points out Java Jazz. Sorry, it sounds great but it's in New West and not Vancouver and I don't get out there very often. If anybody else, has a suggestion, please leave a comment!
