My name is Llana. I’m from Manila, Philippines but I currently live in Vancouver. I am in my junior year in the University of British Columbia taking up Economics, Chinese and International Relations Studies. I created this blog simply because I love food and I love to eat. I don’t really do professional food/restaurant critique because I created this blog simply because I love to eat and I want to share what I’ve tried with the rest of the world. I won’t try to please everyone with a brillant and humorous post because I admit I’m not good in writing and articulating about things, which I find very sad because I did not inherit the brillant writing minds of my family and relatives:(. How I wish I’d be able to write as well as them. Though one thing I can assure you is to satisfy your eyes (and belly) with all the pictures and stories I’m going to share!:P
I’ve been wanting to start a food blog for a long time but just never had the chance and the will to do so, and now here I am finally, my first and only food blog! I’ve tried a lot of restaurants here in Vancouver (meaning greater Vancouver - downtown, burnaby, richmond…) but I am nothing compared to the other long timer food bloggers out there like Ben and Susan’s chowtimes.com There are a lot of great restaurants to try here and it’s really fun to eat and explore. That’s my way of de-stressing and little things like these make me happy.
If you will notice, most of my posts will be restaurants in Vancouver specifically Downtown. I love Downtown and I am always there since transportation is really convenient especially coming from school or meetin up with friends. But I definitely want to try a lot of other great “hidden places” like in Richmond, Commercial Drive, Main street, South Granville, Kitsilano, Yaletown, New Wesminster to name a few neighborhoods. So that’s a goal I want to achieve.. and of course save up for it because I’m sure it’s gonna be hard on the pocket! I will also be posting other food stories from different places when I travel. But for now, Vancouver will be my goal!:)
Don’t expect some fancy shmancy critique because I’m not an expert critic anyway. I just love to eat and say whatever I want to say about it. My style of blogging is very casual..just like having a normal conversation among a group of friends. I’ll also be rating them on a scale of 1-5. 5 being the highest based on the total experience, food taste and quality, service and price.
I have two separate pages divided namely “Restaurant Raves” and “Food”. “Restaurant Raves” contains all my restaurant reviews while “Food” contains all random posts about food. I made it that way so it will looked organized:) All photos are taken by me unless otherwise stated. Hmmm..that’s everything for now. Thanks for dropping by and feel free to leave some feedback and comments in the ‘Ask me Anything’ section. I am very much open to critiques and suggestions!
Cheers to good food and Enjoy eating!
