Sunday Snippet: Timothy Taylor on Foodie Culture

December 14th, 2014

“Food. Food. You have to step back and ask: How and why did we all get so hepped up about food? When I flash back to my childhood cuisine–and I mean flash, just grabbing the first image of food my memory will serve–I get a Safeway bag of frozen mixed vegetables. Diced carrots with peas […]

November 18th, 2014

Here on Beyond the Rhetoric, I’ve developed the habit of reviewing a lot of restaurants. In addition to all the eateries in and around the Vancouver area, I’ve also highlighted several from more exotic locations around the world.

November 5th, 2014

The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, as long as you don’t have to make your way through his wallet to get there. All joking aside, this week’s speedlink focuses on the gastronomical exploits of my fellow bloggers, starting with the one and only Ed Lau. He recently attended a media […]

My Vancouver Restaurant Bucket List

October 24th, 2014

September 22nd, 2014

Vancouver is filled with many well-known restaurants like West and Hawksworth, but you don’t have to break the bank to get a great meal. Indeed, there are plenty of hidden gems out in the suburbs too. So, prior to Adalynn’s arrival, Susanne and I went to visit a couple such restaurants. We’re always up for […]

More Quick Bites Around Vancouver

September 8th, 2014

Last week, I shared a few quick bites from around the Metro Vancouver area, including some Japanese baked goods and Shanghainese xiaolongbao dumplings. This week, we go for another trip around town to find some good places to eat with quite the variety of cuisine to boot.

Quick Bites: Asian Food in Metro Vancouver

September 1st, 2014

By now, you’ve likely noticed that we have an embarrassment of riches in Metro Vancouver when it comes to great food. This is especially true when it comes to Asian food. We have terrific sushi and pho (on the cheap too) and I’ve been told by visitors that Vancouver has the best Chinese food outside […]
