Big G Large Fried Chicken

I always loved the Taiwanese style fried chicken you can get at those bubble tea places such as Bubble World and Pearl Castle. My girlfriend tells me that in Taiwan you can find this type of fried chicken as part of the street food vendors, it’s a popular street food down there.

Well Big G Large Fried Chicken located in Richmond offers that same Taiwanese style fried chicken but super sized. This definitely got to be the biggest piece of fried chicken I ever had, and it comes in multiple flavors for you to choose from. I chose the salt and pepper flavor; I found the chicken was very crispy and juicy on the inside and the flavor was great. If you like fried chicken then this may be for you.

Every city have their special donut shop, Vancouver is no different, we have Cartems. Cartems is a gourmet donut shop, a donut costs anywhere between 2-4 dollars per donut. I been to other donut shops in other cities such as Modern Donut in Calgary so I’m familiar with these types of donuts. Cartems got some of the most interesting flavors, the image above is a Pink Lemonade Donut and it was one of their monthly features donut. I believed I had this one last summer, I wish it was on the regular menu. Some of my other regular favorites on the menu includes the London Fog and the Salted Caramel Donut. If you ever find yourself in Vancouver and craving a donut, check out Cartems they have 3 locations, Mount Pleasant, Downtown, and Kitsilano.

Weekend Brunch at West Oak

A few weekends ago, we wanted to go check out Cafe Medina for lunch but we arrived there the wait was over 1 hour long. So instead we decided to try some place else, pretty much anywhere that had no wait since we both were hungry. West Oak in Yaletown was the place, I’m a big fan of eggs benedict so I when I saw the had to try lobster eggs benedict; I just had to try it. It was pretty amazing, there was just the right amount of hollandaise sauce with the right amount of lobster meat. Some places you order lobster eggs benedict and you barely get any lobster meat, at West Oak it’s not the case there was actually chunks of the lobster claw in it. I would definitely go to West Oak again for brunch.
