Dine Out 2015: Miku Restaurant

IMG_4584

Hello, hello! I have finally found some time to work on a post about Miku, in which I went during the Dine-Out Vancouver Festival. Once I saw the menu, I was very, very excited! As previously stated in my post on Gami Sushi, I have recently discovered ABURI-style sushi, and I am in love. So when I saw that Miku had assorted aburi, I knew it was a must-try, especially when I have been wanting to come here for a while.  (more…)

Hello, hello! I am back, and ready to continue blogging. I even started using my DSLR for photos, so for all my DSLR friends, I’m totally open to suggestions on better photo-taking. Hopefully, these photos will make you drool even more 🙂

To start up, I’m going to review a place I have been to a few times already. As of date, this may be my favorite sushi place that is delicious AND affordable. They also offer ABURI, which is my new favorite kind of sushi now! Aburi is a kind of Japanese-style cooking in which they sear the food, and let me tell you, it is heavenly.

This place that recently turned ONE yesterday is a waffle place I have been wanting to try this place since I found it on Urbanspoon the same time I found Nero’s, and finally the day came! Street parking in Vancouver means PAY parking, so we had to park in the residential area. We were lucky, so we only had to walk about a block. However, I guarantee the walk is worth it, because it’s just that good.

I was mad craving desserts, so J and I decided to go on a quick date before he left for vacation. We carefully chose Thomas Haas after about an hour of deliberation on Urbanspoon, so by the time we actually went, we had high expectations. Heed my warning, the area is almost all pay-parking, so you will have to park in the neighborhood area about a block or so away.  (more…)

First post of 2014! I’m back and ready to get on blogging. This restaurant was in a magazine my mom was reading, and she suggested we try it out, so why not? Takeya Sushi is in the same complex area as Safeway, so parking wasn’t too bad since it’s almost never crowded and full.

I can never get enough of Japanese cuisine, whether it be sashimi, ramen, or rice bowls. Anyone else agree with me? So since it was the last day of class of first term of my summer semester, why not celebrate and have a lunch date? I was craving noodles AND Japanese food, so this was the more obvious option. The place was surprisingly not as busy as I thought, but maybe that is because the whole restaurant takes a break for several hours, from around 3-5 pm (correct if I’m wrong), and it was a fairly late lunch since we went around 2pm. Considering that it’s located on Alexandra Road, you would think that it’s street parking, but there is surprisingly a parking lot at the back. However, if you are unlucky and happen to enter at a busy time, then street parking is the only option.

Tai Tung Chinese Seafood Restaurant 大同新派食館

I love having brunch with the family, because it’s something that we don’t get to do often, especially with school and work. So of course we took advantage of the statutory holiday. We decided to not go to our usual place for dimsum, and try something new instead. According to my dad, this restaurant opened about a year ago to expand from their other location in Kingsway. Since my parents haven’t been here in recent years, and my aunt who loves Tai Tung (on Kingsway) is visiting soon, we decided to come here to see if it is good enough to bring her here as oppose to the Kingsway location. The dishes are categorized as S (small), M (medium), L (large), and SP (special), each with their own specific price.

For those living in Richmond, Tai Tung is just over the Arthur Laing Bridge, which isn’t too far at all. However, being that it is on Granville, only street parking is available, which may be scarce if it’s busy.
