Sushi Loku

592 E Broadway, Vancouver, BC | www.sushiloku.com | I had been wanting to visit Sushi Loku for a long time but somehow kept forgetting about it. After seeing a great post on my Mimi’s (Indulge with Mimi) feed, I told my boyfriend we had to go the next chance we got! As a lover of […]

Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ

888 Nelson St G3, Vancouver, BC Food Rating: 8.5/10 The Meat Lovers for 2 ($55) is around the same price for an all you can eat dinner. Even though the food isn’t “unlimited” and you may not end up getting as much food, I would choose to eat here over an AYCE barbeque place because I prefer quality […]

Kitanoya Guu in Richmond

4151 Hazelbridge Way Richmond, BC  Food Rating: 9/10 I’ve always loved every meal I’ve had at any Guu location, and this location was no exception! As always, everything was tasty, cooked well, and I had great service. This location is definitely the most quiet one as I’ve never had to wait for a table. One downside is that they […]

Mega Sushi

100-3131 Chatham St Richmond, BC Food Rating: 8/10 Right in the corner of Steveston, this busy, Japanese restaurant offers a full menu of a typical Sushi restaurant, alongside lots of specialty rolls and creative dishes. My favourite was the Godzilla Bites- the deep fried rice was crunchy on the outside but soft and chewy inside! We […]

Shishinori

2328 Cambie St Vancouver, BC Food Rating: 9/10 I love this place! The food is fresh, healthy, and tasty! I can’t say anything wrong about this place. For one, it’s super cute inside- cute, clean decor is always a plus. The service has always been great, and their menu is fresh and unique. If you’re into […]

Miku

Canada Pl, Vancouver, BC Food rating: 8.5/10 My sister absolutely loves Minami in Yaletown, so for her birthday I thought I would take her to Miku. Minami opened after Miku, and I always have an affinity to “original” things (I never prefer sequels or remakes to originals). I also ate at Miku, then Minami in […]

Cafe de L’Orangerie

1320 W. 73rd Ave, Vancouver, BC Food rating: 8.5/10 This cute Japanese-run cafe is in the middle of nowhere! I thought it cornered Granville St but it was a few blocks away from Granville. Contrary to my boyfriend’s critique, I loved both the pastas we ordered. He really liked the chicken Karaage and we both […]

Bistro Sakana

1123 Mainland St, Vancouver, BC Food rating: 7.5/10 This restaurant, in the heart of Yaletown initially attracted me with their “zushi” copy of Minami/Miku’s Oshi Sushi. Complete with a jalapeno slice (which was actually pretty spicy, unlike Minami/Miku’s), the aburi style salmon box sushi is similar, but not quite the same. The dish I enjoyed […]

Guu Otokomae

Gastown location 105-375 Water Street, Vancouver, BC Food rating: 10/10 My favourite Guu location! Always friendly staff and consistently good food- although not pictured, hands down my favourite thing to order is the Mushroom Cheese Bibimbap! That being said, I love everything I’ve ever had and it’s one of my favourite places to go for food (in […]
