Pineapple bun with a slab of butter at Lido Cafe in Richmond - the most authentic Hong Kong style Cafe I've found in Vancouver. Their HK milk teas are killer.

    Wow…just wow. I wish we had half that stuff in Victoria. Also I wish I could go out that often to eat! Damn you children! ;)

    Haha that’s why we don’t plan on having children… :) Moms’ willpower during pregnancy alone astound me.

    I wish I had just had your week…and if every week is as delicious as this I wish I had your life, apart from the about to marry a dude bit!

    But the dude’s an amazing cook… :)

    I love these pictures! Lido Cafe looks great

    Thanks, doll! If you haven’t been yet, you really must.

  • Calgaryeats

    There must be more than just Asian food?

    Excuse me?

    Apparently Calgaryeats has selective reading and skipped over the non Asian food and pictures. Maybe they’ll also skip this comment over as well.

    Great VARIETY of cuisine … what a delicious week you’ve had! We are so lucky to have such wondeful DIVERSITY in Vancouver!

    Calgaryeats also likes to generalize cuisine by the continent. Wanna grab some European food with me some time? *chuckle*

  • http://www.gourmetfury.com/ Melody Fury

    kekeke… we’re no Calgary, apparently.

    Looks amazing!  Going to head to Lido Cafe today to try the tea – I’m an addict.  But people should think twice about the foie gras.  The pain and suffering inflicted on ducks to produce this food is unconscionable.

  • Carey

    I think it’s disgusting that you would advocate foie gras.  Shame on you for eating the result of tortured animals.

    That’s one school of thinking but I urge you to open your mind and read up on more research. I appreciate your comment none the less.
