There aren't very many dessert places in Richmond and Vancouver and I've been hearing about Sweet Revenge a lot, but I have yet to try it. I finally got the chance to get a taste of Sweet revenge, however I'm not quite sure if i'll come back to take revenge for some more dessert. The place itself was really small and there was very little space between the tables. The decor featured more of the English antique style, but I think this atmosphere would be more suitable for high tea, rather than late night dessert. Considering the fact the space in this shop is limited, I guess it is reasonable to have only one person on the floor serving customers, but surprisingly flagging down for service was extremely hard.
We were finally able to order, and we had the hot chocolate and the ginger bounce tea for the drinks, and a tiramisu and apple crisp. Mmmm... the hot chocolate was too small and literally half the cup was filled with whipped cream, totally not worth the $3.95. As for the ginger bounce tea, I was really disappointed in the lack of ginger taste and I found it rather minty than "gingery".

Almost all the way up to Burnaby mountain, Anton's Pasta bar was really what we were going for but they had a huge line up as usual during the dinner peak hours. With two monster growling tummies, we decided to drive further up to see what other selections there were and here we found L'artista Ristorante Italiano which seemed pretty authentic AND no wait time (to get seated). This is another one of those places that makes you feel like you're in little Italy. Hmmmm.... what is the word I'm looking for ? Classy! I do not know how else to describe this place, but only it being warm and cozy with so many people filled inside the place.
There were many pasta selections and the risotto section caught my eye immediately so we ordered the mushroom risotto and the special of the day, seafood seashell pasta (but changed to fettuccine instead) with white wine sauce. How can we go without ordering calamari as well and especially when they had their own version of this dish. I was disappointed at first because they didn't have the breaded and deep-fried version of calamari, but after tasting L'artista's version, the letdown was a "letup". Oh boy was the squid so so TENDER. No chewing was necessary at all. It was after this checkpoint, everything went downhill.

Located near the intersection of Victoria Ave and East 41st avenue, a little cozy Chinese soup house is found: 湯.com. This restaurant was highly recommended by my sister and it is definitely worth the wait for the food and the distance/time travel from Richmond JUST to eat here. This place must be pretty darn good for me to say that eh? What is so good here that lures us here? Well, they are most known for their 煲仔飯/ rice cooked in stone pot as well as their Chinese soups.煲仔飯 is a traditional Chinese rice dish, slow cooked on a fire stove with lots of topping variations and is usually drizzled with sweet soy sauce. As you can see in the picture below, this place is not big, you're basically looking at the whole restaurant interior with an addition of 3 more tables that didn't fit into the picture. Although, the space was limited, I liked the cozy atmosphere along with the TV playing updated TVB dramas, which made the time pass by faster while waiting for our 煲仔飯.
We were greeted warmly by the waitress with hot tea and she checked on us very often although she was the only one serving.
