any good pho place offers deep fried spring roll with white rice paper ?

And fish tanks containing non-edible fish. Sports on the tv.

My mother-in-law recommended dipping the rice paper in Coke before wrapping and deep frying. Funny, huh? But I could see how it might improve the carmelization of the outside...

Get this, my mother-in-law also makes salad rolls with mini-spring rolls inside! I'm so spoiled :P

Return of the refuel burger at Campagnolo, Vancouver

Yes, the cheese absolutely comes through...maybe even a little too much? ;) I definitely want to try it without the cheese to compare.

I like the place! Comfy, cozy, a tiny bit dingy, great bar snacks and a delicious burger. Definitely worth a few revisits.

Amay's House Burmese on Victoria in Vancouver

Wow, could that incident have something to do with their posts on Facebook that their cook had been injured? And that they have to close until Thursday?

Visiting Vancouver with my teenage son

Ramen would totally work! I remember my obsession with ramen started when I watched Tampopo as a teenager. You could kickstard a lifelong appreciation for food with a hot bowl of ramen.

Portland Craft allows kids...just not at the bar unless accompanied by an adult.

What Food Trends have you noticed or forecasted for this year?

OMG toast is happening in Vancouver now:

http://scoutmagazine.ca/2014/03/03/di...

Quote: "They’re also upping their food game with – get this – a toast bar. They’ll be using their in-house, naturally leavened organic bread and spreading slices with plain butter, walnut butter, seasonal preserves, tapenades, and chutney. Oh, and cinnamon toast, because when you have a toast bar, there has to be cinnamon toast (it’s in the rules)."

285 Burger

And to add insult to injury, a pic of the burger at Model Milk, also in Calgary. I requested RARE and they did it! OMG so good. Like steak tartare in a bun.

If you ever find yourself in Calgary, you should try Clive Burger. Excellent beefy Alberta beef taste. Here's a pic of their $10 double bacon cheese.

285 Burger

Teen Burgers used to be a guilty pleasure when they were 2 for $5. But I stopped eating fast food for a long time, then when I went back and tried Teen Burgers again, I just didn't enjoy it as much as I used to. To me it tasted both jacked up and bland at the same time...does that make sense?? I must sound crazy. But the freshness and simplicity of the $2.85 burger really appealed to me in comparison.

285 Burger

Definitely not. For me, price was a big factor in calculating the value and worthiness.

Fabulous brunch spots?

Oh yeah! Tuc!

Totally forgot. Of the three things that I had there, all three were good ;) But it was a heavy meat overload brunch for me that day... I do want to try their dinner.

For pricey, fancy brunch, I've tried Farmer's Apprentice and Burdock & Co, and enjoyed them both. Some pics and commentary here:

I like these places because they're doing something a bit different from the usual heavy comfort food.

If it's one thing foodies love is THE NEXT BIG THING. I had to try this unassuming food cart at Granville and Pender for myself. Background:

Long story short, a good burger with great value!

Spud Shack Fry Co. (New West SkyTrain Station)

Speaking of New West Station area, I love Longtail Kitchen in River Market a lot. It's like a cheaper, casual Maenam but the quality and execution is still great. I'm looking forward to their Malaysian longtable pop-up dinner this Saturday :)

Spud Shack Fry Co. (New West SkyTrain Station)

I've been wanting to...they have a surprisingly good beer selection. Stumbling distance to Skytrain is a plus.

Technically brunch...only on weekends. But it's my kind of breakfast!

Yes, eggs on stuff may be the new bacon...as evidenced by this "Breakfast Poutine" at Portland Craft (which is in Vancouver BC, not Portland).

Best Ramen

Those would be my top 3 to try as well.

And yes, Santouka still has tsukemen. Pic from last week:

Finding well cured salumis

I don't know about well-aged, but have you tried any of the Moccia & Urbani salamis? http://www.mocciaurbani.com/

I buy them from Les Amis du Fromage, Urban Fare, etc. I really like the flavour. I can slice it super thin. I especially like the spicy Argentinian one.
