Miku Holiday Kaiseki Zensai

Miku Restaurant

For my birthday, AngryRussian took me to Miku for dinner.  As it was the holiday season, Miku had a special holiday menu of six courses ($125).  The appetizer course had 7 small items itself!!  We both decided to do the special set menu, and we noticed that a lot of patrons that night did the same […]

Okonomi Sushi

TDog and I met up for a much needed girl date, and we went for sushi lunch at Okonomi Sushi in Uptown New Westminster. Okonomi Sushi is a Korean-run Japanese restaurant.  It’s spacious and clean, but the service is a bit slow and sometimes it feels like there’s a language barrier.  Extremely polite though. I […]

Shishinori

Fannypack and I have been at a running club for 3 weeks now, so we’ve been up and down a specific section of the Cambie strip for a while.  Now we’ve noticed a little new Japanese restaurant called Shishinori serving Japanese style cafe-ish food.  So we set a date to have dinner after one of […]

Guu with Garlic

Oh Guu~~ I always have such a good time at your place!  What’s your secret? For this particular visit, I’m sure the culprit must be the pitcher of Aloe Vera Mojito ($16.5) shared among two girls.  Yep.  That must be it. This was refreshing.  I liked chewing on the mint leaves but there really aren’t […]

Tsuki no Shizuku 月の雫 – Shin-Osaka

I absolutely LOVED, LOVED LOOOOOOOOOVED our first dinner/meal in Japan.  As we arrived quite late in the day in Osaka, we decided to spend the night at a hotel near the airport in the city of Shin-Osaka.  After we checked in, we walked around in search for food.  We were hungry!! Just across the intersection […]

Misoya Ramen

Update Dec 3, 2012: This restaurant is now closed. I think I’ve seen this Misoya Ramen before but just didn’t remember it until I saw them advertised in the current issue of Klip magazine.  They currently have a coupon in there for a Ramen and Gyoza combo for $10. It is not very big in […]

Sushi Hachi 鮨八 Richmond

Sushi Hachi is one of those local gems that has received lots of rave reviews due to their homely atmosphere, and simple, comfort food that is familiar to Japanese and non-Japanese alike. They have the staples of Japanese cuisine that’s known and loved all over, like California Rolls, Cones, Tempura, and the more adventurous, authentically […]

Guu Aberdeen

Dinner at Guu!  Woohoo!  However, it’s only the one at Aberdeen, and I think that one has a reputation for not being up to par with the Downtown ones.  However, this was back at the time before the Canada Line was finished, we didn’t want to go drive all the way there, we settled for […]
