Review: Juniper – Vancouver

185 Keefer St, Vancouver – Website

Juniper 1

Date of Visit: July, 2017

I happened to stop by at Juniper for a beer after traipsing around Chinatown on a hot afternoon. The place has a huge list of unique cocktails, a pretty decent wine list, and also a handful of craft beers. I ended up having two beers and, after perusing the menu, I decided to come back for a meal… Continue reading “Review: Juniper – Vancouver”

Review: Fat Tuesdays

62 York Street, Ottawa – (613) 241-6810 – Website

Fat Tuesdays 1

Date of Visit: December 2, 2012

Fat Tuesdays sits smack dab in the middle of Byward Market and, in the summer time, has seating on an out-door deck. I had a beer and a snack of some sort out on their deck quite a few years ago and, on this most recent visit to Ottawa, I thought I would see what a more substantial meal would be like inside.

I had a look at the Menu that was posted by the front doors and, when I saw that one of the specials was steak served on a sizzling hot stone, I remembered a friend telling me about it and I decided to give it a try. Unfortunately, the experience started out so badly I never got to eat… Continue reading “Review: The Cornerstone Bar and Grill”

Review: The Aulde Dubliner Pub

62 William Street, Ottawa – (613) 241-0066 – Website 

Date of Visit: July 26, 2012 

The Aulde Dubliner sits in Byward Market just beside The Highlander Pub. I have been here before a couple of times (once with my wife) but only for drinks and never a meal. On this trip to Ottawa, I planned to have a steak as at least one of my restaurant experiences and, after working up a thirst shopping in the Market for a couple of hours, I decided to stop at this place for lunch… Continue reading “Review: The Aulde Dubliner Pub”
