After experiencing Enchant, the Molangs were craving for some hot food. We wandered all the way to South Fraser Street, and among numerous cash-only restaurants, we finally found a place that accepted credit cards – So Hyang Korean Cuisine.
First and foremost, we would like to commend their staff for a superb service. Their friendliness, helpfulness, and efficiency made our dining experience that much better!
For our late dinner, we simply ordered a hotpot for two.
Gam Ja Tang – $24.95
This was a classic hot pot with pork bone, potatoes, and veggies. The meat had been slowly cooked to be point that it would just melt off the bones. The soup was satisfyingly flavourful; especially on a snowy day! For spiciness level, we asked for “mild”, but it turned out to be closer to “medium” (not a complaint; just stating our observation :P).
All the side dishes were refillable, and we enjoyed the variety.
- Kimchi – something spicy
- Potatoes – something sweet and filling
- Bean sprouts – something crunchy
- Fish cakes – something sweet and mushy
Molang Scores & Verdict
Excellent food and service. Prices were lower than comparable restaurants in the city as well 🙂

Here comes another brunch review! This time, the Molangs came to the Tangent Cafe on Commercial Drive (aka “The Drive”). We were attracted by Tangent Cafe because they advertised themselves as a Malaysian-fusion restaurant. Little did we know, the 99% of their Malaysian-inspired dishes are for lunch/dinner only 😛 No biggie, let’s check out their brunch offerings anyway!
Smoked Meat Hash – $13
I love breakfast/brunch food that you can eat with a single fork (i.e. minimal effort)! 😀 The hash consisted of Montreal smoked meat, potatoes, onions, and red peppers. It was so satisfying to eat. For an extra layer of texture, mix in the egg yolks. Combined with the fruit and bread (of your choice), this was a well-balanced dish to start our weekend. Continue reading

We (the “Molangs”) went to the Santa Claus event at Steveston this past weekend, and boy, was it cold. I was freezing, but a cup of Blenz hot chocolate and a complimentary Santa hat (yea!) really helped block the wind.
Santa Claus actually arrives by boat at the Steveston harbour, and is greeted by a sea of families (not pun intended) with Santa hats.
It was quite the sight. I mean, who knew Santa would arrive by boat and is escorted by the RCMP?
We checked out the Cannery Market, which was very packed! Apparently Santa would be joining everybody for photos later in the afternoon in the market.
Anyways, on to the food part! Pajo’s Fish and Chips was our lunch destination. We’ve been to Steveston many times, mostly over the summer, and often see crowds of people (we assume tourists) hovering around the little Pajo’s Fish and Chip’s stand, which is located at the Steveston Fishermen’s Wharf.
