Not often do foodies think about trekking out to humble “Poco” (Port Coquitlam), but being a resident of this surburban city about 40 mins from downtown Vancouver, does have its perks. Poco is abundant with many hidden gems, especially with little sushi restaurants hiding in strip malls. Once you step inside, you forget you’re far [...]
Not much needs to be said about Miku Restaurant. Step inside, taste the food and you’ll know why they’ve become one of Vancouver’s most talked about Japanese restaurants. Miku has definitely got it figured out. Not only is the location amazing, being waterfront facing towards Canada Place, but they maximize its potential with their large [...]
Across from Market City shopping center, at the corner of Ultimo Rd and Thomas St, you’ll find Kura. Kura is a small little Japanese restaurant, that can probably seat less than 20 people. It’s definitely not the kind of place you would go to sit, eat and chat with a friend for lunch. It’s an [...]
Just before I was due to travel for two months in Eastern Asia, I decided to get one final sushi fix. I had heard really great things about this sushi restaurant in Steveston, so I made my way there on my last night in Vancouver.
Note: if you ever go, remember to make reservations! When [...]
You can’t talk about sushi in Seattle without mentioning Maneki. Being a sushi establishment that’s been around for over 106 years, Maneki has a deep history and even was recognized by the James Beard Foundation. The foundation honours restaurants with recognition and is often called ‘the Oscar of Food awards’. Maneki’s long, rich, history and [...]
Shima-Ya (or SHIMA-YA as per their menu and sign), is really a classic sushi restaurant in the Vancouver area of Victoria and 41st. I’m a huge sushi fan and a fan of this place in general. I’m particularly picky about my sushi and really stand for quality over quantity. I’m not a All-You-Can-Eat type person [...]
I’ve been hearing a lot about this place recently from my co-workers at Burnaby Hospital. So on a Monday night, instead of going snowshoeing, a bunch of us decided to go have sushi instead! Food always beats exercise!
The decor was nothing out of the ordinary, and if anything it is a very simple [...]
It was time for another C&C event! This time we set off to Suika, located in the Fairview area on Broadway. The decor on the outside was pretty neat, giving it a really modern look. It’s good to be prepared with some change as free parking is hard to find in the area! [...]
As we were enjoying our delicious slices of pie from Savary Island Pie Company we noticed an interesting looking Japanese restaurant across the street, Ki-isu. Since we were craving sushi we decided to check it out. It might sound strange to eat sushi after pie but we love our pie and Savary Island [...]
Dining in Sydney, Australia is not for the faint at heart… or I should say, those with shallow pockets and faint hearts. Prices take quite a while to adjust to, but if you’ve got the refined taste buds and are ready to shell out the moola, you’re in for a real treat. Sydney is a [...]
