arte e scienza dell’espresso

Along with wine, pasta, love and sunshine, nobody does espresso like the Italians! I snapped these luscious shots while visiting Rome recently.

Belated but Blogged: Canada Day in Steveston

Ok it really is July 11th and I’m only blogging about Canada Day just now.  Oops… but it was such a great day that I can’t let it go unblogged about!  My brother and I decide to take our visiting parents to the annual Steveston Salmon Festival on Canada Day.  It was a beautiful day starting with a tour of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, followed by sunshine, endless crowds of happy Canadians, cupcakes and finally fresh-barbequed salmon!

Happy Diwali & My Favourite Indian Eateries

In honour of Diwali and my true love of Indian food, I’ve decided to share a list of my favourite Indian restaurants in world. Dishes like palak paneer, aloo gobi, mutton masala & samosas are like comfort food to me and no matter where I travel to, I can always find genuine Indian hospitality and a good chef!
I had some excellent food pics to share with this blog post but lost them when my iphone was stolen in Rio de Janeiro recently; so you’ll have to make do with the links below and share your own photos sometime! (Lesson: sync everything, always!)
In no particular order, my favourite Indian restaurants are:
Moti (Tokyo)
Tandoor (Taipei)
Tandoor (Sao Paulo)
The Taj (Seoul)
Baba India (Seoul)
Mumtaz (Berlin)
Khan (Zurich)
Musafir (Istanbul)
I had a brief love affair with my neighbourhood Indian bistro, Heavenly Bites in North Burnaby, which sadly closed last year due to family illness. More recently I’ve been frequenting Simply Curries in Vancouver which proudly supplied the Olympics with samosas!
Happy Diwali & Bon Appetite!

Cider in Seoul: Thank you, Big Rock.

As I spend so much time away from home, it always gives me a warm & fuzzy feeling to find something heartily Canadian while abroad. This doesn’t happen often but it did when I stumbled upon (and eventually out of) the Big Rock Brewery pub in Seoul. In Gangnam, to be exact. Being a big, big fan of cider in general, I was ridiculously happy to put back a few pints of Rock Creek when on a long business trip last fall.


The Big Rock brand of beer originates in Calgary and the brewery is super proud of it’s carefully crafted premium Alberta beers (and cider!) and cool company culture. So why Seoul? The Big Rock blog tells that a few Koreans had a successful trade mission a while back when they toured the brewery and later opened the Big Rock pub in Seoul.

So if you’re in Seoul and craving something Canadian or just want a stellar craft beer, you’ll find the Big Rock pub by following these directions (as posted on the pub’s facebook fan page).

Gangnam Station (line 2), Exit #7. Turn right immediately (down a small alleyway leading to a backstreet). Continue going straight up the hill. If you look back, VIPS and Starbucks should be at your back. Big Rock will be on your left. If you see a park on the left, you’ve gone too far.

I’m sure the Canadian teachers in Seoul looooove this place! ♥ Big Rock.

Honey Orange Latte, I ♥ you.

I was secretly hoping I would find this Starbucks special somewhere in Taiwan, where I’ve been working the last week, but I guess not. The Honey Orange Latte was released by Starbucks Korea in January as part of a “year of the Tiger” promotion. Sadly, It’s appearance was too brief. Until next time, Honey Orange Latte, I ♥ you.
