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 […]

Little Garden Chinese Cuisine 十里香 -Bellevue, WA

Many times when I visit Aunt Aggy and Uncle Walken in the States, they take me to new restaurants they’ve discovered.  This time, they took mom and I to Little Garden, a mixed Chinese restaurant in Bellevue.  I say “mixed” because they offer Shanghai style, Hunan style, Szechuan style; all different styles of Chinese food. […]

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 […]
