Since it’s that time of year again when the blistering sun comes out and nobody can resist that urge to get outside, we decided to pay a visit to one of our old friends, Pajo’s!
This fish and chips shack has been here for the longest time ever, proving to be one of the more popular locations in this area. They are very family-friendly as they have many picnic tables and benches for larger crowds of people. Furthermore, it just so happened that the Richmond Maritime Festival was taking place at the Steveston Wharf when we went. Finding a parking spot was every man (or woman) for themselves! We constantly missed chances at parking, and obviously we weren’t going to pay $10 for the special parking lot for a 1 hr lunch. The key is patience, and pure luck. Both proved useful as we found a spot after half an hour of patrolling the area, only costing us $6 for 2 hrs of parking.
To buy and get your food, you have to walk down a ramp, which means strollers and wheelchairs are happily accepted. Of course, Pajo’s specialty is to set you in the ocean-kind-of-feel while you eat your meal to complete the experience. However, I don’t absolutely adore the murky green water that surrounds the place or the seagulls/birds that fly around the eating benches. It’s a decent touch and I won’t bag too much on it. For us, we went back up the ramp to the picnic tables.
Out of curiosity, I peeked through the ordering window ( which is not what you see in the picture, by the way, this is the pick-up window) and checked out their working “environment”. Click to continue…
Finally, it’s summer again and thanks to my extremely open schedule, I will try to get blog posts up and running again. Actually, I’ve just returned from my trip to Hong Kong about a couple weeks ago and boy, it was insanely humid! Once I walked out of the airport, a blast of heat just enveloped my face and soon enough, I felt my body react to the sweaty “sauna-like” conditions that these HK people must endure in the summer. Oh wait, I just remembered that this a food blog, and nobody wants to hear about the grossness of being sweaty. OK! I only have three words to describe the food in HK: cheap and authentic. By “authentic”, I’m obviously not talking about those fast food joints like Cafe de Coral, Fairwood, or Maxim’s. So enough with explaining cause I’m just going to show a few items that I tried and would like to try again.

You didn’t read the title wrong, this post really is about a snack product. On the contrary, it’s about a very special recent snack that’s been all over the internet and has apparently reached Vancouver.
So to make this short, cause this will be a quick post, popchips are basically this new kind of chip that is made without frying or baking Click to continue…
