CITIES

For the past few years, Chinatown has been bustling with entrepreneurs and small business owners, who take pride in opening up something to call their very own. Zachary Zimmerman and Graham Marceau (who also co-owns Corduroy Pie Company) shares this dream as co-owners of Say Hey Cafe. Say Hey Cafe brings forward the flavours of New York Hoagie style sandwiches to Vancouver. This spot is cozy and simplistic with a small curated menu. But don’t be deceived by the small menu, as each hoagie is packed with fresh ingredients, bursting with

One of the most common questions you’ll hear from your significant other is “Where should we go eat?” and most of the time, you don’t have a clue. Lucky for us in this day and age we have Instagram, with over 800 million users worldwide, it’s become the go-to platform to check out new eats. We tend to hear the terms “Foodie” or “Foodstagramer” quite often, and we gravitate towards these individuals because they showcase an array of stunning food photos. But do you ever stop and wonder what goes

Some of you may know him from OLN’s The Liquidator, host of Kijiji’s Second-hand Van, or he’s probably sold you something you’re currently using at home. For a man that’s always on the move and making moves, we caught up with him to pick his brain on his favourite noods (noodles) spot, growing up in a Taiwanese family and how to be a full time “Opportunist” (as Dan would call himself). TEAMCHOMP: Can you tell us a little about yourself and what you do? Dan: My name is Daniel Fu

Hypebeasts are generally pretty easy to spot in the wild. Think about the times you’ve seen someone wearing a hoodie with a red box and “SUPREME” written inside ($800+ value) while strutting around like he’s a boss. One question I get asked a lot about hypebeasts, being a bit of one myself, is whether we wear these pieces because we genuinely love the quality, style and fit, or if it’s just for the branding. That question is what inspired this article because I wanted to tie together 2 things that

Longtail Kitchen offers a diverse menu of Thai comfort-style food. While staying true to traditional Thai methods and flavours, Longtail Kitchen also adds their own unique modern twist. With staples such as satay, green curry and pad thai served Quayside in New Westminster, it’s definitely a hot spot worth checking out. TEAMCHOMP recently sat down and talked with Chef Justin Cheung of Longtail Kitchen. With such an innovative restaurant, we were curious to hear about the influences and inspirations behind Longtail Kitchen‘s decorated menu and Justin’s thoughts on the culture

Beautifully barbecued pork skewers, crispy beef tapa and a side of lumpia all served over a bowl of steaming white rice. When I think of Filipino food, I think of the excitement I felt when I was invited over to have dinner with my Filipino friend’s family. The good vibes that come with sharing conversation with 12 other people over platefuls of homemade comfort food… something I’m sure those with Pinoy friends can relate to. Now imagine how cool it would be to have a restaurant change the game by

When discussing the most exciting new restaurants in the city, most people will proudly spout about their first (or second, or third) time dining at Savio Volpe. The Italian osteria is one of the driving forces powering the rapid growth of Fraserhood as a foodie destination. After being selected by enRoute Magazine as one of Canada’s top 10 new best restaurants in 2016, Savio Volpe appears destined to continue winning the hearts of food critics and bloggers alike. Want to book a table for dinner with your friends sometime next month?

Chinese New Year, a time when your Chinese homies seems to be busy with family dinners every other day. A time of the year where some of your local asian malls become flooded with people to the point where you might think you landed in Asia (Aberdeen, anyone?). A time when some of the best Chinese dishes are the reason why you opted out of going for drinks. We have all heard of the annual traditions such as red pocket money, but have you ever given much thought as to

“Do you want to come to a chicken pot dinner?” Without the slightest idea that a “chicken pot” might be a real thing, I assumed that my friend was inviting me to eat chicken pot pie. It made sense. It was freezing cold outside and what better comfort food than a piping hot chicken pot pie? Well, not only did I learn that Taiwanese-style chicken hot pot is indeed a real thing, but I also found out that it’s the real deal if you’re looking for soul-warming food that can be shared

Some Vancouverites love shopping, others doing yoga on the Burrard Bridge and some even have a weekly ritual of grabbing brunch on sunday mornings. So what happens when Vancouver becomes… Raincouver? One thing comes to mind – a nice hot bowl of noodle soup to warm the soul. People have all heard of the hyped noodles places with photos seen all over Instagram, but what about the hidden gems around town without the same social media presence? We have put together a list of TEAMCHOMP’s Top 5 Low-Key noodle joints
