If you haven't stumbled across Sherman's Food Adventures, the iconic, mind-blowingly extensive food blog that covers every type of food imaginable in Metro Vancouver, you should check it out right away.

The author, Sherman Chan, has reviewed more Chinese restaurants than just about anyone (just shy of 200). I asked his recommendations for high-end  budget and inexpensive noodle/wontons to celebrate Chinese New Year and to enjoy the Year of the Dragon to the fullest.

Here are his picks:

Expensive, delicious Chinese restaurants

Thierry's desserts hit the sweet spot

Thierry Patisserie is that rare breed of dessert cafes: it's open early in the morning (7 a.m.) for those in need of a pick-me-up before work and stays open very late (midnight) for people in search of a late after-movie dessert. 

The elegant cafe has an amazing vibe at any time of the day. It offers a wide assortment of chocolate, macarons, pastries, liquid chocolate and decadent cakes. In addition, Thierry Patisserie has a liquor licence so you can enjoy some red or white with your dessert.

The place is famous for its colourful macarons, ranging in flavour from gingerbread, cranberry, lime, lemon, hazelnut and pistachio among others. This iconic confection has the perfect crunch and melts right into your mouth.
