My little hiatus & Yummy Vancouver, a food & drink search engine side project

Hey everyone,

Lack of updates recently, mainly due to me being sick for the past three weeks. I've also been busy with a lot of non-food related stuff.

On a more food related matter, I've been working a little project called Yummy Vancouver. It's a custom google search engine designed to search through local food blogs and websites (like dinehere, tasteof604, etc). With some help and ingenuity, I managed to include all the (mostly relevant) discussion topics from the British Columbia and Western Canada topics of both Chowhound and eGullet.

Yummy Vancouver, a food & drink search engine for Vancouver, BC

There are a lot of great resources on all things food & drink in Metro Vancouver, but you often have to know where to look. I thought that by compiling a database of these resources, the result would be a more focused alternative to simply using google. Anyway, try it out and let me know how it works for you!

If any food/drink blog or website owner wishes to be apart of the database, leave a comment here. Read the "About" section on the Yummy Vancouver website though!

  1. Philippine pili nuts from the Bicol region in the Philippines is a great Filipino or Philippines food or snack. Pili nuts are very healthy and nutritious indeed, being a source of energy, potassium and iron.They also have protein, dietary fiber / fibre, and calcium as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.  I know they have no cholesterol, no trans fat, and the unsalted ones have no sodium. What is great about the pili nut snack or treat is that they are so crisp, rich, and delicious.
