Opened on March 20, OEB Breakfast Co. is now officially in Langley at Willowbrook Shopping Centre. We had a sneak preview of the new location on the weekend and had a Sunday brunch there.

Launched on March 15, 2023, Yaletown’s Provence Marinaside now has a Quelle Surprise menu everyday until April 15. Quelle Surprise translates into “What a Surprise,” and literally, you will come to the restaurant and be surprised! Each morning Chef Jean-Francis Quaglia and his chef team will make a limited number of dishes from a rotating assortment of bistro favourites, and these dishes will be featured in a two-course menu for only $49. This feature will be available during lunch and dinner service.

“Some days we’ll make a dozen orders of a particular appy and main, and other days, depending on the availability of ingredients and what inspires us, we might make two dozen, or only ten,” says Chef Jean-Francis. “I won’t know until that day what we’ll make or how many.”

With the new Whitecaps season kicked off last weekend and one of the biggest concert years ahead, BC Place Stadium and Sodexo Live! have launched their new concession menu for 2023. Throughout the concourse level, different themed concession stands serve up a variety of items inspired by different cuisines and cultures. There are also a few fun items introduced to the menu this year.

I had the pleasure to attend the media tasting and showcase last week, and here are what caught my eyes:

Seoul Food (section 206)

Korean Fried Chicken – 4 flavours to choose from: soy honey garlic, snowing cheese, Gochujang glaze, and original. The chicken pieces were more Taiwanese popcorn chicken size, but the flavours definitely reminded you of K.F.C.!

Last weekend I went to the 30th Annual Wellness Show in Vancouver. My intention was to discover interesting, tasty food products that are also good for our bodies. And I wasn’t disappointed. In no particular order, here are 7 food products that I sampled and enjoyed, and would recommend you all to give it a try. They should be available at local health- and wellness-forward grocery stores such as Nesters Market, Whole Foods and City Avenue Market, or online on their own websites.
