Overall I had a great experience at The Chopped Leaf. The food was fresh, it satisfied my cravings and I felt good about what I was eating. I’m always conscious about calories and with the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies throughout the menu, I felt a little more at ease about the caloric intake. This will be my new go-to spot for healthy food!

One of my favourite ramen joints in the city, because I never leave feeling thirsty and dehydrated. This flame-broiled char-siu is super tender and lovely to have with any of their ramen broths. I’ve also recently been loving their salmon-don dishes with their garlic and spicy mayo!

Sorry, people. This awesome vegan eatery is in LA. I highly recommend trying their vegan chocolate chip cookie…I regret not bringing some back to Vancouver! If you’re vegan/vegetarian, you’ll love all of the options this place has to offer. Heck, even if you’re not vegan/vegetarian, you’ll still enjoy a meal here!

This fairly new chocolate bar store offers more than just chocolate bars. Ice cream sandwiches, chocolate nuts, and cafe drinks are also sold here. I remember their vegan coconut chocolate bar as a standout!

This Vietnamese restaurant flies under the radar when it comes to well-known Vietnamese go-to’s in Vancouver.
The food is fresh, simple and not oily.
The pho broth is clean and the noodles are cooked well. This restaurant has good reviews for their bun bo hue and I agree that it’s one of the better bun bo hue’s have had.
The chicken on rice is good- decent amount of meat and the flavours are good.
One of my favourite dishes to have here is the banh bot loc tran- boiled pork and shrimp tapioca dumplings served with fish sauce. The chewy texture contrasts with the flavourful fillings and toppings and makes for a great bite of something unexpected.

Anh and Chi– Vancouver’s trendiest authentic Vietnamese food restaurant. The interior is beautiful, you can find classic authentic dishes, and there’s often a wait for a table. I like that they didn’t try to modernize their dishes and kept them simple. This restaurant was simply rebranded and I think it was a genius business move.
Their bowls (all are fully customizable) hit all the right notes- satisfying, full of texture and yet still sustaining an element of freshness.

One of my favourite desserts, and therefore dessert spots in the city! Their cream puffs never cease to amaze me with their unique flavours, perfectly fluffy texture and innovative means of delivering modern twists on classic desserts. Their ice cream sundaes are pretty bomb, too– oh, and did I forget to mention they started as an award-winning chocolate company?

One of Vancouver’s most popular brunch spots! The menu doesn’t consist of your typical breakfast/brunch items (eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc), but offer a variety of Mediterranean-inspired dishes. I always go for the Fricassee (short ribs), La Sante (simple charcuterie board) and of course– a must order: the waffles!
