On November 21, 2017, I had the privilege to attend the Gather Mexico dinner hosted at Fayuca in Yaletown. The Gather Dinner Series celebrated the culinary friendship between Mexico and Canada, and the Mexico Tourism Board launched their campaign promotional video, “Dear Canada”, celebrating the mutual love between Canada and Mexico. www.visitmexico.com
Dosanko is a newly opened restaurant in the heart of Vancouver’s Japanese community. Blocks away from a Japanese language school, this restaurant attracts after-school Japanese students, and the area’s industrial lunchtime breakers.
The cooking style is considered yōshoku, a “Japanized” interpretation of Western cooking- per their website. The married-couple owners share their story of the first dish Akiyo cooked for Nathan, and how they decided to share food with the world together.
Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged. Whoops! I have to admit that I’ve been really horrible with posting full restaurant reviews and I blame the ease of Instagram posting and fully take responsible for my laziness…but I’m back! And hopefully I will figure out a posting routine for my busy schedule.
If you didn’t know, I’ll be going to Bali for 9 days for a dear friend’s bachelorette, and from there I will be heading to Taiwan and Japan (sidenote: please give me your activities and food recommendations if you’ve been to any of those places!). Bali = being in a bikini all day, errday and my body is notbikini ready...which is why I’m really trying to focus on eating healthy food and working out. My biggest struggle is (clearly) the eating heathy part, which is why I’m thankful for places like The Chopped Leaf that serve up health conscious food that still tastes good.
Overall I had a great experience at The Chopped Leaf. The food was fresh, it satisfied my cravings and I felt good about what I was eating. I’m always conscious about calories and with the abundance of fresh fruits and veggies throughout the menu, I felt a little more at ease about the caloric intake. This will be my new go-to spot for healthy food!
