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…)

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 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.

A special occasion calls for special dining, wouldn’t you agree? The weather that day started off very gloomy, but I was so happy it cleared up a bit by the evening! I learned that Mama C & Papa C came here before little ol’ me was born, so I figured why not revisit the restaurant after many years? I’ve only been here once, and it was a fairly good experience, so I was excited coming here again.

Who else is enjoying all this sunshine? I know I am, and what better way to spend a hot Saturday afternoon and go for ice cream!Even though the location is kind of in the middle of no where, it doesn’t stop people from coming. I hear that the place is usually crowded, especially in the summer time, so I take it as a sign that it must be a must-try!

Now the thing that is most interesting to me is the fact that there are so many flavours, which makes one kind of think how can someone think of that many flavours? And then you imagine all the different things, like wasabi, garlic, and ginger. Well, surprise! La Casa has those flavours available (how bizarre is that?). They even have bizarre combinations, which may surprise you if you are brave enough to try. Unfortunately, I was not brave enough to try these flavours, because they just sounded too weird. So if you want to take the chance and have a little try, you can just ask because they do give free samples.  (more…)

Since I have been studying and doing school work for the most of reading break, my boyfriend decided to take me on a quick lunch date. Now he told me that there is a new bubble tea place that is owned by the same people that own Flo Tea Room; they are sister restaurants!

This relatively new restaurant caught my mom’s eye when she stumbled across their Facebook page, especially since it was Malaysian/Singaporean cuisine. So this made her quite eager to try it, since she has a soft spot for food from our hometown. Every day of the week, Kaya has a special, and since we went on a Tuesday, their special was 50% off Roti Canai! You can check out their promotions and specials on their website and/or Facebook page.
