I always like to know, what’s cook...

            When I travel across the country and stay at a well known resorts or hotels, I always like to know, what’s cooking and who is cooking it today. Asking if the chef is cooking today is always a good bet things should be stellar. After spending last spring living out of a suitcase for 3 months and traveling from BC to Ontario with plenty of stops and new cities to check out. A good Breakfast is usually the first meal that will tell you if the kitchen is up to snuff. A good selection of choices served or gratis buffet style...

Table Hopping with thekitchenman. When I get to visit a new area eatery that I’ve been told about or just happen find and old diner or golf course  or resort restaurant of interest. It’s super finding so many family run stores with hand crafted food items and pantry items while checking out the back roads here in Woodstock and the surrounding farming counties.

So far taking the old highways and back roads in to Ayr, Guelph, Cambridge,...

VL’S Curry Bowl

VL’S Curry Bowl

            VL’S Curry Bowl. Taking time to have lunch on the run while shopping means stopping at the mall food courts. Some of them have been operating for several years like the ones at my local T&T Market Mall in Surrey BC.  The Kiosks in T&T carry a fine selection of fresh Asian foods, meats and whole fish which brings me here a couple times a month. One of the best meals I can suggest is stopping and saying Hi to Michael at VL’S Curry Bowl. This kitchen has been pumping out good quality takeout with lots of flavour....
New Years Chinese Dim Sum

New Years Chinese Dim Sum

  The sign to thekitchenman that you’re about to get some mighty fine tasting duck and pork bbq! Half and Half with some fluffy jasmine rice and the au jus dripping sauce is what you need! Some steamed bok choy and guy lan with jasmine tea and your still under twenty bucks!         The restaurants here in South Surrey really put some passion and effort into the dishes prepared for the celebrations. Stop me before I eat again! I started with some hot and sour soup and my sweetie prefers the chicken corn. Yum! Our dim sum items arrive to our...
Mushroom Shrimp Vegetable Buddha.

Mushroom Shrimp Vegetable Buddha.

Mushroom Shrimp Vegetable Buddha. Chefs Choice. After a few visits to good Chinese eateries I trust the chef enough to splurge and try one of his house special dishes. This menu entrée had every ingredient I liked and the chefs assurance he only uses premium quality items in his dishes made it truly mouthwatering delicious. The Mushroom Shrimp Vegetable Buddha feast had eight different vegetables and a trio of fat plump Asian mushrooms soaked in different wine vinegar brines. These jumbo beauty white gulf shrimp were first shown to us by the server with the heads on....
