Wandered into The Portside Pub while waiting for Alibi Room to open on a Thursday afternoon and saw that they changed their menu to a more Nova Scotia-focused one. Before they had fun snacky stuff like dim sum, hot dogs (“red hots”) and popcorn. Now, sadly, that’s all gone. Continue reading Taste of Nova Scotia at Portside Pub (With Bonus Round at Alibi Room)
Our food & beer adventures in SF! There’s so much to do there, we’ll have to go back soon! This trip was all about having too much on our list to do, but being relaxed and open-minded enough to just let things happen and take chances when they come up!

The combination of brewery tasting rooms and mobile food trucks is a dream come true for me, ever since seeing that setup in action in Portland.

If you’re every wondering what food trucks will be at Brassneck, following Brassneck’s twitter feed is a must, as is keeping an eye on Street Food App’s Brassneck listing.

Chilo’s Taqueria holds a special place in my heart because they sorta kickstarted the whole authentic Mexican taco thing in Vancouver. Before Chilo’s, no one was serving taqueria-style or street-style tacos. Nowadays, there are lots of places to get decent-to-pretty-good tacos (Tacofino and the current king La Taqueria) but back then it was the next big thing that got the foodies excited.
