Cartem's Donuterie

Cartem's Donuterie is a pop-up donut shop that opened up on the corner of Hastings and Carrall. It's in the seedier part of town, but worth the trip out for their donuts! Just ignore the random people that come up to you asking for change and make a beeline for the shop :)

Cartem's sells donuts for $3 each or $15 for 1/2 a dozen. It's a bit pricier than most donut shops, but it's worth it! They make them fresh daily and use the finest ingredients. The variety of donuts changes each day too.

1/2 Dozen of deliciousness waiting to be opened

And the revealing!

Fisherman's Terrace Seafood - Dim Sum

In the mood for some dim sum, we decided to brave the Aberdeen parking lot in order to dine at our favourite dim sum place, Fisherman's Terrace.  As always, it was quite busy, but we still got a table pretty quickly.

Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie

About a year and a half ago, a friend of mine got a job at Bao Bei and told me I should come check it out because it was delicious.  Fast forward to last week, and we finally got around to stopping by for dinner.  It's located in an area that most would define as 'sketchy' at best, but the reality is that even if the denizens there are a bit seedier, they generally leave you alone or are too high to care.

Yummy Sushi - $2.99 Breakfast!

When going for lunch, my co-workers and I will always walk by this place: Yummy Sushi. We will always see this sign outside advertising $2.99 breakfast all day. At first, we were hesitant to try this place as it looks really dingy and a bit shady as you cannot see inside the restaurant (not even through the door) and the only things visible is the sign, a "cash only" sign and a faded, dirty awning with "Yummy Sushi" written on it.

One day, we all just decided to go check it out. Who can say no to $2.99 breakfast?

Cattle Cafe (Richmond)

Flowerbunny and I had decided to try some of the smaller cheap Chinese restaurants near us, so one night after work, we took a walk down Alexander road and ended up at Cattle Cafe.  Flowerbunny already reviewed the Burnaby location, but I'd never been and I love noodles, so we decided to give it a shot.  They were fairly busy when we entered, but we were seated pretty quickly and given tea.
