Lining up for a table has become the norm amongst new trendy spots and Bells and Whistles is no exception, luckily you could shoot some hoops or play ski ball while you wait. Located in Fraserhood, Bells and Whistles have quickly become the go-to spot with a menu consisting of great comfort food and rare beer. We had the opportunity to chat with Chef Alessandro Vianello, also known for Wildebeest and Bufala where he talks inspiration behind Bells and Whistles, their vast beer offerings, and secret menu items…(did I mention

Feeling lucky? This holiday season, we wanted to get festive with some good ol’ fashioned dunkers from one of the biggest names in town: Lucky’s Doughnuts (out of 49th Parallel Coffee Roasters). As you may know, we at TEAMCHOMP are not shy about being some of the nosiest Joe’s around, and we wanted to find out the WHAT, HOW and WHY behind the new menu at 49th Parallel, including a holiday selection that dropped this season from Lucky’s Doughnuts. What better way to see what’s up than to hit up

This has been a (delicious, calorie-laden) project in the making for quite some time now. The talk of creating a Vancouver cookie guide on TEAMCHOMP started quite a while back but it wasn’t until I had a cookie-induced meltdown that the idea of creating a joint project of Building A Cookie Box 101 and Vancouver Christmas Cookie Guide came into fruition. I created a cookie box last year and posted it with recipes for my favourite Christmas cookie. Coming into the holiday season this year, an overwhelming amount of emails

Kobob means “Korean Rice” in Korean, and in Korean food rice is definitely a must. Connie and Colin, the co-owners of Kobob, wanted to put traditional Korean food and flavours into a unique form that would also entice Canadians to try. With that simple idea in mind, Kobob Burger became the first of its kind to sell Korean burgers with rice buns as their staple item. The Kobob burger, has buns made of compressed Korean rice, and filled with a traditional Korean protein filling, like bulgolgi pork/beef, or spicy pork/chicken,

From enthusiast to full-fledged career, Andrew Lau aka @thendrw turned his passion for sneakers, basketball, and fashion into a full-time career with a click of a shutter.

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
