Four hours at the Hub

My cousins and I decided to do our ladies night at the Hub in Yaletown. The place was nice though it has a warm, casual and high end feel to it. When I first got there it was filled with older men and then towards the end of the night the crowd got younger. I was seated right near the door and every time I glanced up from my Wet Dream martini (which tasted just like juice =yummy) it looked like the two hostess were glaring at me. I guess they got flustered with the dinner rush and there I was by myself at a table looking like I was just stood up since I arrived a good half hour earlier than my cousins.

When my cousins came we had a feast! I'm pretty sure we tried most (80%) of their appetizers. I think my favourites were the Wok Squid (so succulent and perfectly spiced) and the Yam fries with the curry sauce. The Lobster Wings were a 'meh' I think their name just ups the expectation and it did not pass for me or my cousins. We also enjoyed the Kobe Beef Balls which were quite savoury - I'm not much of a beef person though so you may like it. And the nachos (with banana peppers!), onion rings and scallop potatoes were also good. We also tried the Chocolate Chip Pazookie and Cheesecake for desert -both of which were amazing! The service was generally good. Our waitress was always around topping up our wine glass with the bottles of white we ordered.

The Hub is definitely a must try. Appies are only $6 from 3- 6pm AND they have pretty decent drink specials. Over all it was a tad bit pricey, maybe because it's in Yaletown, but I would definitely go again.

Lazy Photo Blog

So I have taken photos of my food during the past three months with the notion that I would blog about it later and never got it it. BUT here are the photos from the Philippines, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Vancouver =) ENJOY!

Gringos at Joeys

So I had my first experience of a 'Gringo' at Joeys on Burrard and Robson and I totally loved it! It's composed of beer, a frozen alcoholic slush ball thing that melts in your drink and with the lime it is pure perfection! What's even better you may ask? ... These Gringos are only $4.99 at Joeys on Tuesdays!!!

The crowd at the Burrard & Robson Joeys on a Tuesday is actually pretty happening (not sure if I used the idiom correctly) and the waitress we had was super genuine and friendly.

So if you want to go somewhere fun and try something new on a weeknight I would recommend a Gringo at Joeys!
