Kissa Tanto Vancouver - Octopus Salad

Birthday Dinner at Kissa Tanto Restaurant – Vancouver, BC

For my birthday dinner this year, AngryRussian took me to Kissa Tanto in Vancouver to celebrate. Kissa Tanto does Japanese/Italian fusion cuisine and while I’m usually weary of fusion, upon inspecting the menu I decided this would be a unique experience! First drinks!  I ordered the Midori Sour ($14) as I love melon flavor and egg […]

Ramen Danbo Vancouver

Ramen Danbo

  Ramen Danbo has become one of AngryRussian and my favorite places to eat on our movie date nights (although we’ve really only been here twice).  The Vancouver location is within walking distance from 5th Avenue Cinemas, and is perfect for a quick and delicious meal.  We can usually get in and get out of there within […]

Cake'Ya shortbread cookies and mochi

Cake’Ya

I forgot where I read about Cake’Ya.  It’s a tiny little operation located in Port Moody that makes a small selection of Japanese (Okinawan) goodies.  Small selection but each type of goody comes in an assortment of flavors. Easter Sunday we decided to have a relaxing day and head to Rocky Point Park.  On the […]

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 […]

Torafuku Finding Nemo

Torafuku Vancouver

A while ago Travelzoo had another awesome dining deal and this time it was for the restaurant Torafuku in Chinatown.  Torafuku is a modern Japanese eatery and the owner/executive chef Clement Chan was a contestant on Top Chef Canada.  So I was really glad this deal appeared and again Fannypack was my eating partner.  For […]

Sushi California Coquitlam

Sushi California Coquitlam

Sushi California is a chain of Korean-run sushi restaurants that offer pretty decent portion sizes for not a lot of money.  It’s one of AngryRussian’s favorite places to eat actually.  We always go to the Coquitlam location on North Road. They remind me a lot of Sushi Garden in a lot of ways.  The pricing, […]

Okonomi Sushi

Update:  This restaurant has closed. 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 […]

Aqua Sushi + Juice Bar

Update:  This restaurant has closed. Aqua Sushi + Juice Bar was a last minute dinner decision one night because Six suddenly had to go away for work for 4 weeks, so we only had time for a 30 minute dinner before he had to leave.  In this case, take-out was the way to go. Aqua […]

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 […]
