We went to the Taiwanese restaurant Vogue to celebrate Queen Victoria’s birthday. Unfortunately, Lizzie couldn’t make it.


Most know that Vogue was the name of a hit 90s single by Madonna. It was also the name of a 2000 hit single by J-pop diva Ayumi Hamasaki.

Coincidental because there’s a waitress at Vogue that has an uncanny resemblance to Ayu. Needless to say, Vogue (located in Richmond next to Pearl Castle) has developed a reputation for its attractive staff. In other words, the waitresses are really hot.


But that’s not the only reason to go to Vogue. The decor is cool (Club Monaco-ish), the food tastes great, and the prices are very reasonable. No wonder why the restaurant is usually packed in the evening; make reservations to ensure that you don’t have to wait.

VogueWe ordered and shared a bunch of dishes: pig ears, 3 cup chicken, a tofu dish, some veggies, little basket buns, and a couple beef wraps.

Not the best Taiwanese food you’ll have in Richmond, but quite good – especially considering the reasonable prices. Share a few dishes with your friends and you’ll leave full, satisfied, and only $10-$15 lighter.

Just remember that like most Oriental restaurants in Richmond, Vogue does not accept credit/debit cards. Cash only.


All in all, not a bad way to kick off a long-weekend.
