Yatsuhashi

I asked the Boyfriend to get me some of these  on his layover at Narita Airport in Japan.  I had these about 7 years ago when I went to Japan.  I’ve always liked rice cake consistency Japanese sweets so I’ve longed for these ever since that time.  Obviously, I haven’t been to Japan for a […]

A&W Uncle Burger

After seeing the commercial for this new Uncle Burger at A&W, I knew I had to try it.  It is basically their version of a sirloin burger, probably similar to Mickey D’s Angus Burger (which I didn’t like at all…bring back the Big Xtra!!!!).  It supposedly has 3 ozs of sirloin meat in the patty. […]

Shanghai House Restaurant 上海人家

This location seems to have many change of hands.  This time around it became a Shanghai restaurant.  The outer decor is left the same, except for obviously the restaurant sign.  They’re located on No. 3 Road across from Richmond Centre, in the mall that houses Staples. I have never been inside the previous identities, so […]

Noodle Express 中華楼

Update: This restaurant is now closed. We were on a quest to find the next great ramen place.  From reading blogs online I decided on two places: Shogun the Sapporo Ramen and Noodle Express, both for cheap and good ramen. First stop was Shogun.  However, once we’ve arrived, it turns out this place closes at […]

Green Lemongrass Vietnamese Cuisine

The best pho soup base for me lately has got to be this place.  It’s located between No. 3 Road and Cooney, along Westminster Highway. Between the 3 of us only one ordered pho, but they still gave us a big plate of boiled bean sprouts, basil and lime.  Even though it’s not the way […]

Sensus Bistro 品味

Update Jan 13, 2013:  This restaurant is now closed. This is a “new” restaurant that’s opened in Union Square along Capstan Way.  It’s not actually new, as the owner and the workers are still the same, as is the decor.  They just renamed the place and revamped their menu. Like all HK Style cafes, this […]

King Leo Soft Strawberries & Cream Puffs

My sister brought this back as one of the souvenirs from when she flew to Georgia for a convention.  She thought it would be something I’ll be interested in and she was right. I had to open them right away since she wanted deperately to try them (and I thought they were for me!!).  From […]

Kingsway Sushi 東壽司 AYCE

Kingsway Sushi has recently become my favorite place for All-you-can-eat (AYCE) japanese (albeit chinese-made) food.  They have quality fresh sashimi and a decent selection of items in their Deluxe Dinner menu. It was a Saturday so the place was packed.  Good thing we made reservations, but still we waited for about 15 minutes.  Those without […]

Ichiro Japanese Restaurant

We had heard of Ichiro Japanese restaurant from our friend, who highly recommended it.  It took us a few hurdles to finally be able to visit it.  The first time, we tried on a Monday.  We arrived to realize that it’s closed on Mondays.  The next time, intelligent us decided to go on a Saturday.  […]

Kari House Restaurant

Kari House is a malaysian restaurant in Steveston Village.  It was quite packed when we visited, but then it WAS a Friday night so not surprising.  We were promptly seated even though we did not make reservations.  The restaurant’s location is quite near the end of the whole Steveston deck housing the restaurants, so there was […]
