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. Andrew’s photography work has been featured in many online publications and all over social media (over 50K followers on Instagram) with notable clients like Nike, BMW, adidas, I.T Hong Kong, NBA, and more. Check out our conversation with Andrew as he shares his thoughts on fast foods, photography philosophies and who he thinks will be the 2018 NBA champions. TEAMCHOMP: Hey Andrew, can

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

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

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

The clubhouse sandwich: the original super sandwich. Since its creation in 1894, the club has gone from a simple but brilliant “whole meal” sandwich to the towering triple-decker stacks we commonly see today. The original recipe called for chicken or turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and a generous amount of mayo. I mean, how could you go wrong with this setup? My love of the clubhouse began at the White Spot in Kerrisdale where I grew up. The turkey club has always been a prominent feature on the menu, but did you know that they

A couple of weeks ago, we posted our thoughts on a few choices for poké joints around town. Maybe it’s this gloomy weather that’s got us daydreaming about beaches and sunshine, but all the talk about poké really got us thinking, “Where do we go for Hawaiian food in Vancouver?” A quick Yelp search for “Hawaiian” comes back with suggestions for a few poké places and Honolulu Coffee (which kind of makes sense). But from there, things really drop off. The 10th most relevant search result? Uncle Fatih’s Pizza. What? Now imagine you
