Yandoux is a patisserie in Olympic Village that offers custom cakes, a selection of individual-portion cakes in their showcase as well as pastries and afternoon tea sets. I stopped by to grab some dessert to-go while waiting for my pickup order from Boca’O nearby.
Month: February 2021
Boca’O is a Spanish food truck that specializes in Tapas. They opened in 2019, but I only recently heard of them while browsing Tock for takeout restaurants. I had to cancel my trip to Spain last May due to COVID-19, along with the El Celler de Can Roca reservation I managed to snag 11 months in advance. Needless to say, I was disappointed and have pined for Spanish food ever since.
Despite being in my neighborhood, Chez Christophe in Burnaby Heights is one of those places I’ve passed by for years without visiting, instead opting to drive downtown or to the North Shore for my patisserie cravings. It wasn’t until I saw the socially-distanced lineups out the door at the onset of COVID-19 that prompted me to check the place out and realize what I’ve been missing in my own backyard this whole time.
