Downtown Vancouver: (What to expect and where to eat :Thierry, Japadog, Chatime, Five Guys, Ole chicken, Jinya Ramen Bar, Patron: Tacos and Cantina, Cafe Medina, Nero Waffle Bar, Coast, Don Francesco

I’m not sure if there’s anything to do in Downtown Vancouver but to do sight seeing (or shopping if you have funds lol) or if you want to take good (instagram) photos then this area can be one of your options!!

If you want to look for a specific place in Downtown, I suggest you preload where it is on google maps do some screenshots (lol that’s what I did) but I will still place the exact address of some of the places we went to below.

Eat:

Thierry

This dessert place was actually recommended my brother’s friend, Zavier. They serve cakes, macarons, coffee and I think ice cream as well. They’re usually fully booked but he told us good thing there were already less people when we arrived.

He also mentioned that people usually flock here for the desserts because it was delicious!!

lol hi Zavier

 

Japadog

I think there was a buzz going around Japadog for being “unique” since they were offering a Japanese hotdog.

There was a branch in downtown so we decided to try what the buzz was all about.

For me it was nothing special but it’s worth the try.

we got Kurobuta Terimayo since it was the most popular

 

Chatime

My friends know how much I am addicted to Chatime (ps. best one is still from Taiwan). I already know there’s Chatime in Vancouver (thanks to my brother). After spending a few seconds on google, I saw that there is one in Downtown!!!

We got a little bit lost (since we just pre loaded google maps before turning off the wifi) but THANKFULLY WE FOUND IT!!

Five Guys

Five Guys is one of America’s favorite burgers and found it’s way to Vancouver! I haven’t tried Five Guys yet so we decided to try it!

Ole Chicken

My brother knows how much I love Korean food!! He told me Ole Chicken has the best Korean Fried Chicken so I had so much high expectations and they did not disappoint!! Definitely going here again if I’m craving for some Korean Chicken if I’m in Vancouver!!

img_7652
I think this was spicy rice cake with ramyeun noodles

 

Jinya Ramen Bar

During one rainy day we decided we wanted to eat something warm for lunch so my brother recommended Jinya. Line up early if you want to eat here because the line’s usually long.

MUST TRY: TAKOYAKI!!

Patron: Tacos and Cantina

My brother told us while he was in college he discovered a good Mexican restaurant around downtown!! We were so excited to try their nachoes because my brother said they were so delicious AND IT DIDN’T DISAPPOINT!

img_8051
SO GOOD
img_8052
their tacos were so good but the nachoes was so big we couldn’t finish the other dishes anymore!
img_8053
their quesadilla wrap was so good as well!

 

Cafe Medina

When we went to Vancouver earlier in 2018, my cousin told me to dine in Cafe Medina. We weren’t able to try it when we were there around May but when we went back in December we made sure to try this place! It’s a good place to go if you want to have a heavy breakfast before you start your day.

surprisingly there were no lines when we went there!

Nero Waffle Bar

My other cousin posted on Instagram story about Nero and she told me it was so delicious!! Definitely made sure to go here since I love waffles so much!! We went to the Seymour Street branch since my brother told me the Robson Street branch was quite a walk.

** I think there is a different menu at their Robson branch because the one my cousin ordered wasn’t in the menu of their Seymour branch

img_8609
def coming back to try their mini Liege waffles

img_8610img_8611

I got Speculoos! (not a fan of whipped cream and they were kind enough to replace it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream)
img_8613
my dad got Mocha

 

Coast

For our last day in Vancouver, we decided to have some seafood! My brother haven’t tried Coast but he said he has read good reviews about it.
