Looking for a sweet spot to kick back and watch your favorite team crush their opponents? The Parlor is a really classy sports bar on the Westside. I like it because of its modern decor and sleek feel. The bar has two floors and both are littered with plasma TVs. I would recommend going during happy hour, which is from 4pm-8pm. During that time, sliders are $1.50… Continue

Introducing the Japadog - A new kind of Hotdog: Vancouver BC

The Oroshi

As Annie and I were driving around to look for a place to eat in Downtown Vancouver a few months ago, we spotted this hotdog cart with a huge line. The sign on the cart said "Japadog". Could these Japadogs put the infamous LA bacon-wrapped we know and love to shame? And so the love affair began.

The Menu:

The Terimayo ($4.25) is the most popular. An all-beef dog, grilled and topped with nori… Continue
