Hi, I’m Mark, welcome to my website!  I’m a 30-something year-old food and travel lover who was born and raised in Vancouver.  In case it’s not already evident, I’m not a professional photographer or blogger!  I’m just a guy who always looks forward to indulging in something delicious to eat and drink, and hope this blog inspires others to do the same.  I don’t do sponsored posts or “collabs”.  I order anonymously and all reviews are 100% my honest opinion.

But why take-out?

Many of us love eating out, but work and life gets in the way and dine-in isn’t always possible or ideal.  And then COVID-19 happened.  While there are tons of food blogs and reviews of restaurants, I’ve always had a hard time finding reviews and photos of takeout.  Whether it’s the packaging, plating or service, the takeout experience has so many factors that make it different than dine-in. 

I’ve been to top restaurants that treat takeout as an afterthought, haphazardly plating otherwise gorgeous dishes as if they were leftovers.  Sometimes they would make you wait awkwardly by the entrance as if you were an annoyance.  In contrast there are restaurants that surprise you with great value, service and a delicious takeout-focused menu that looks and tastes amazing even after being sloshed around the car for an hour on the drive home.  My goal is to shed light on this often neglected aspect of the food scene, and show that takeout doesn’t always have to be a compromise.

Hopefully this blog helps you find good food at home.

I’d love to hear from you
