Why did the chicken cross the road?

So finding good fried chicken in the Pacific Northwest is like trying to find fresh seafood in the desert. Its hard to find. I’m still searching for an amazing chicken and waffles in Vancouver.

But there’s this local joint in the heart of gastown that’s pumping out some amazing fried chicken and other great bbq’d meats.
I highly recommend peck in pah for their chicken fried sandwich. And if you are anything like me, I order it sans cilantro.

To me, this has got to be one of the best fried sandwiches I have ever tried. So much yum. And really its so simple. But the fact that their chicken is juicy and fried makes it a win.
Fried chicken not your jam? Well don’t cha worry your lil self about that. There’s much more in this tiny joint. I strongly recommend the fried pickles. Again, they are the best I’ve had.

Don’t want fried. No prob. Try their mac and cheese. The portion is huge. But if you are bold enough and enjoy meat I would suggest adding the pulled pork to the mac and cheese. Its amazing.
Peck in pah also gives each table a few of their house made sauces. Honestly, I havent tried them yet. Not that I don’t think they will be good. But I just haven’t felt my meal needs the extra sauce.
I also like the location and great big windows on this restaurant. Grabbing a window seat isn’t hard since the whole place is windows over looking the brick streets of Gastown.

Oh! I almost forgot. The beers! They have a good beer selection of local beers. Unfortunately I’ve mainly been here for lunch. So I haven’t had the opportunity to drink my way through their beer menu. But I’ve noticed it and plan to try more of it when I can.
Have you been here yet? Or know of the best chicken and waffles in town? Please send us an email or leave a comment below.

It’s a Wrap!

It’s 5 am… Dark, cold, dank. Oh snap. Just like that we are into Pacific Northwest’s fall season. But here I am sipping my delicious coffee (thanks to Primula’s stovetop espresso pot) and happily snuggled in my fleece blanket. What a perfect segue into Fall Wraps.

Kells was inspired to do a photoshoot on Fall Wraps. Big thanks to my snuggly reversible black-and-hot-red wrap from Addition Elle.

So wrap we did…

Just like the cold shoulder, wraps are a perfect fit for any body shape or skin tone. And oh my the choices of colour, fabric/texture, style and embellishments is bound to get a person hot under the collar.

The wrap can be used to cover up a not-so-inspired outfit or can be used as a teaser of more fabulousness to come. Booyeah! Transformed!

Kells is sporting a long grey wrap from Dex, a printed number bought from Sears and a warm grey and black striped wrap from Reitmans.

We suggest, when picking your new fall wrap, that you make sure it can be versatile and worn many different ways. This way you will get the most out of the wrap, from rainy days at home, to dinner out with the girls! However you wear it, just remember this fall to wrap it up!
