For our last dinner in Sydney, we ate at Tetsuya’s. It was outstanding. I am really impressed with the food in this city. We have not had a bad meal yet, and its not just the fine dining places. For example, I had a random beef curry pie at a place near the ferry terminal, […]Read More Tetsuya’s – 3 out of 3 for Sydney!
Australian beef is some of the best in the world so naturally, I wanted to eat at a steakhouse in Australia. Rockpool kept coming up and so Rockpool it was, and it did not disappoint. It was probably one of the top three steak experiences ever so far, that I have had. First, the dining […]Read More Rockpool Bar and Grill – Another Must Go
My first dinner in Sydney, and Australia for that matter, was at Quay. While doing research, I was coming across a lot of mixed info. Many said Quay was losing its touch. A group of ladies I met while dining at Jewel Bako in New York suggest I skip it. I’m glad I went. I […]Read More Quay – Must Go
Yesterday we had the pleasure of having Anna Lena’s 4 year anniversary tasting menu. It was outstanding in every way. Every dish was delicious and creative. The service was outstanding. The servers were extremely knowledgeable about the food and wines, and were very detail oriented. This is rare in Vancouver. If I did not know […]Read More Anna Lena – 4 Year Anniversary Dinner – On this night, the best meal in Vancouver was served here!

La Cevicheria was a restaurant Anthony Bourdain visited on his show on Colombia. This is probably why when we went around lunch time, its was very busy, and we were told it was an hour wait. We put our name down, went to eat somewhere else, and then went back. We were seated right away. […]Read More La Cevicheria -Cartagena
This recipe was given to me by an 8 year old. When I still had a food company, a girl had contacted us about being a brand ambassador. I have tweaked it a bit to make it faster to produce, and cost effective, plus kid friendly, as we were producing lunches for children and could […]Read More The Best Caesar Dressing Made From Scratch…Almost
Hotel Las Islas is located near the town of Baru, about 50 kms southwest of Cartagena. It is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, and I believe the President of Colombia was on hand for the grand opening in 2018. It is marketed as a luxury resort, and while there are many […]Read More Hotel Las Islas – Baru, Colombia – Lots of Work to Do Here
On a quick stopover in Toronto, I had the opportunity to check out Grey Gardens. We were coming in late from Colombia and had a 10:30PM reservation on a Tuesday night. Shout out to the kitchen and staff who were so nice to maintain the service without feeling rushed even though we were the last […]Read More Grey Gardens – Pastas Were the Standout
I like travelling in comfort with as few inconveniences as possible. The prospect of flying domestic in a country I have never been to, and on an airline I have never been on, is a bit worrisome. For example, will they have good customer service if something goes wrong? There are horror stories online of […]Read More Colombian Domestic Flight Reviews – LATAM
