Sushi Yoi

After multiple failed attempts at eating here (closed every time!), I was finally able to come on a day they were open! I came here after work with A for a much needed catch up session! Aburi oshi sushi is one of my favourite things to eat, so when I saw that they offered it... Continue Reading →

The Gray Olive Cafeteria 

I hadn't seen J in quite a long time, so when he called me to go out for brunch, I couldn't refuse. What I drank: Latte ($4.25) This is one of the saddest lattes I've ever had and I've had a fair number of Starbucks lattes. I think my expectations were a lot higher because... Continue Reading →

Passion8 Dessert Cafe

Shaved ice or 팥빙수 is one of my favourite desserts. There has been a plethora of shops offering them in Vancouver and I decided to check out Passion8 upon missvancouverpiggy's recommendation. I went here with Q on a nice April afternoon. What we ate: Matchacha - Japanese matcha powder, mochi with red bean on snow... Continue Reading →

Emvy Lashes

Kosoo Restaurant

Since I've already been here before, and I tried their lunch special, this will be a pretty quick post. I was scrolling on Facebook when I saw Kosoo's promotion for Chicken and Beer (or Soju) for $35 (see promo here), and the deal was too good to pass up! I went here with a few... Continue Reading →

Joey Burrard

This location is my least favourite. Every single time I come here it takes forever to flag down a waitress and the tables are always dirty. Today I came by with V and the table we got had crumbs everywhere so we flagged down a waitress to wipe the table down and she ended up... Continue Reading →

Al Porto Ristorante

My experience with Italian food is severely limited to Anton's and HK-style spaghetti. So when the co-op student at my office was having her farewell lunch I was happy to hear that it would be at Al Porto. At lunch time, Al Porto has a really good lunch deal where you can get a soup...
