Miura Waffle Milk Bar

Update: This restaurant has moved location. When SheShe saw my Facebook album of the foods I ate in Japan, she was especially intrigued by the waffles over there.  So apparently she feverishly googled for a local source of Japanese-style waffle.  Miura Waffle Milk Bar was what she found. It’s located near Yaletown but I thought […]

Simba’s Grill on Denman

Been wanting to try foods of a different culture for a while.  Finally my chance came when I went to dinner with GRock.  He gave me 3 choices: Korean, Ramen, or African.  I picked African right away. So that became Simba’s Grill on Denman (they also have a location in Burnaby).  Apparently another coworker had […]

Aoyama Cafe

Update Jan 8, 2014: This restaurant is now closed. For O’s birthday she wanted to eat at the new Aoyama Cafe at Aberdeen Centre.  They advertise that they serve the Japanese brand of UCC Coffee’s, and that the LA branch was voted top 5 coffee shops over there.  Naturally, all of this makes you think […]

Dot Dessert

Update: This restaurant is now closed. I learned about Dot Dessert while searching for a Japanese-style dessert place in Vancouver.  I was quite happy to know about it, since I really enjoy the parfaits at Chicco and any new places offering the same thing is always welcome.  It was especially exciting since it’s not located […]

Bauhinia Restaurant 洋紫荊餐廳

Update: This restaurant is now closed. It seems like I’m on a HK-Style Milk Tea binge lately.  I crave for it every meal ever since Alleluia. Our restaurant choice this time was Bauhinia Restaurant.  It used to be on Saba Road but now it’s located in a little strip mall along Granville Ave. and St. […]

Cafe de Waraku 和樂屋

Update: This restaurant has closed. Dinner with Fannypack again! Driving past Central Square I spotted a new restaurant right beside Excellent Tofu.  It’s called Cafe de Waraku and it appears to be a Japanese Style Spaghetti House.  However, having done some research on it, it so happens to be started in Singapore.  So Japanese style […]

Chicco Cafe

After our dinner at Toratatsu, it was still early out so we didn’t want to waste our trip to Downtown and took a walk down Robson.  By the time the shops were closing, we were ready for dessert again, so I took them to Chicco. I was introduced to this place many years ago by […]

Toratatsu Again

Update: This restaurant is now closed. The bunch of us congregated in Downtown again to attend M’s convocation at the new Vancouver Convention Centre.  Afterwards, we had to decide where to go for dinner and I suggested Toratatsu since we all like Izakayas. As usual we’re all supposed to pick something.  We ordered a bunch […]
