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 […]

Ikea Richmond Bistro

We stopped at the Ikea Bistro in Richmond for a quick bite.  This was our first time eating here.  The bistro was very brightly lit, with lots of big windows, thus allowing lots of sunlight in.  It was a cafeteria type setting where you help yourself to desserts that are located in mini fridges.  Hot […]

凡く~ら BonQuLa Fusion Restaurant

Update Dec 10, 2010: This restaurant is now closed. Feeling adventurous again, we visited this japanese fusion restaurant hidden in the corner Olympia Centre on Alexandra Road in Richmond (the mall with Mongolie Grill).  It’s BonQuLa and we’re happy we found this gem as it is a nice cozy restaurant owned and chefed (is that […]

Ouisi Bistro

Having always passed by Ouisi Bistro on our way to Ezogiku, I was eager to try out just what exactly ‘Southern’ cuisine it like. More importantly, I wanted cornbread. I could NOT find it anywhere else in Vancouver. Ouisi Bistro boasts authentic New Orleans cuisine, namely Cajun and Creole. On their website, they describe Cajun […]

Dine-out Vancouver 2008: The Cat’s Meow

Update: The Cat’s Meow is now closed. This is actually from way back in January.  We went for DOV at The Cat’s Meow which is located in Granville Island. This was one of the restaurants offering a $25 menu. The ambiance of this restaurant is like a lounge, with tvs located throughout the bar for […]

Al Porto Ristorante

We grabbed some dinner in Gastown just before we attended the opening of a lounge of which my friend’s the executive pastry chef of.  Looking through our Entertainment Book, I decided on Al Porto Ristorante. It was a nice little secluded restaurant, its decor dominated by brick detailing. It had a warm ambiance. For starters […]
