Sushi Nanaimo

   I keep hearing good things about Nanaimo Sushi and with a 90% Urban Spoon rating, I decided to give it a shot after a long day at work. First impression when you walk in? It’s busy and LOUD. It’s obvious the place has tons of local business and tables turn over fast which was great because we…

Kilala Sushi Bar

Recently my hubby and I were in Burnaby Heights for a photo shoot, and we decided to stop off at a hidden gem sushi bar, which I was surprised to be still open after 9-10 years since I moved out of the area after university. Kilala Sushi Bar has been in its current location on…

Okonomi Sushi

This is the third location for the Japanese food franchise. It has taken over the spot where Taste Nice used to be, and as much as I’m saddened by seeing the Jamaican restaurant go, I was excited at the prospect of getting good sushi close to home. The restaurant is located across from Gateway Skytrain….

Miku Sushi’s New Waterfront Location

This post is way overdue. Miku is one of the best sushi restaurants in the city, no doubt about it, and one of my  ultimate favourites. Consistently good and always innovating, Miku is a solid choice for Japanese cuisine. Having a few minutes to myself after a meeting, I found myself downtown and hungry.  The…

Victoria Sushi

Hidden in the residential area of Victoria Hill in New Westminster, we found this little gem. Victoria Sushi comes highly recommended, not only on Urbanspoon, but also on Trip Advisor and Yelp. I was surprised at how small the restaurant is. The decor is simple and everything is very clean. Overall a pleasant first impression. The…

KI Sushi

It’s hard to find good quality sushi in the burbs. Aside from Hanako in Surrey, I don’t know many sushi restaurants outside Vancouver that I would recommend. Granted, I haven’t been to every sushi restaurant outside Van, but I’ve been to a fair share of them, especially in Surrey and my findings are always the same:…

You can’t have one without the other. Our atmosphere will encompass both. We work as a team to create the best guest experiences…

Minami Yaletown

It was my dear friend @jminter’s birthday, so the gang and I decided to take him to Vancouver’s newest hot spot. Minami has taken over the old Goldfish Kitchen space in Yaletown.  Very airy and modern, the restaurant is gorgeous. The murals were done by Hideki Kimura – a school of golden Koi fish swimming upstream….
