Posts Tagged ‘Paris’

Earlier this year I visited the Faubourg in Kerrisdale for the first time, and learned that they were opening a new store in downtown. Well, time flies. A few months later, the new Faubourg on Hornby has opened its door and I of course had to swing by to check it out.

As soon as I got there, I immediately saw the patio and it reminded me of the cafes in Paris, France, where the seats all face out. Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of Faubourg’s patio, but here’s one from Paris just to get an idea:

Then I walked inside and the decor is pretty similar to the Kerrisdale location. In the back there’s a projector screen playing what seems like black-and-white French films; on another side of the cafe there are paintings of the upper class enjoying some pastries. Elegant and classy. This could be a nice, quiet place to read your favourite book, but it could also be somewhere bustling with lots of chit-chats and coffee meet-ups.

If you read the Kerrisdale post, you know I liked their products. This time around, for a coffee meeting I grabbed myself an Almond Croissant along with a cup of Iced Latte on a hot summer day. (more…)

On a crisp, chilly fall day, I walked a couple of blocks over to the Ze Bite truck. I was craving for a nice stew.

The truck focuses on delivering the taste of France in one bite. Naturally, I went for a French classic, Boeuf Bourguignon. Imagine the steaming hot beef stew – the thought of that already started to warm me up.

I was quite excited when my order was ready. (more…)

For 3 weeks, I disappeared from Vancouver to go travel a little in Europe. We went from country to country, then flew back home.

This isn’t a review for particular restaurants, just some of the foods I took photos of.

In no particular order, we stopped in Copenhagen, Denmark. Or in their spelling, it’s something like Kobenhaven or something. It was a really long day, which included a ride through the canal area. While the others were shopping on Stroget Road, I sat down and enjoyed my chicken crepe which was surprisingly good.

Hunger... must stop for crepe! Why a crepe? 'Cause it was there. Don't worry, I bought some butter cookies of course!

In France, we had lunch on a boat going down the Seine River which went through a part of Paris. It was super warm in there, as it was sunny and the entire boat was covered in glass. The food was just alright, probably because it was so busy, but I enjoyed the wine… too much. I love my chardonnay though.

This was the boat we were on for lunch, went down the Seine River.

Wine tasting? Oh sure, I'll just have a sip..

And of course, I had to try a crepe. (more…)
