Yo Sushi

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Restaurants

On a whim two friends and I dropped in on Yo SUSHI in North Burnaby for dinner. This is a new-ish (open a year or so?) Korean run Japanese restaurant which took over the former Bombay Bhel restaurant space next door to Anton’s Pasta Bar. None of us had tried Yo SUSHI before, and it wasn’t busy […]

Saba Set at Mega Sushi

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Restaurants

Today I was out in Steveston for an Ikebana club meeting, after the meeting some of us decided to go for sushi. Usually we go to Ichiro, but this time we decided to try Mega Sushi. I ordered the saba set – grilled mackerel with accompaniments. Started off with miso soup, which came in a really cute […]

Continuing on the trend of taking my mom out for seafood while she’s in town, my aunt and I took her to Kishimoto on Commercial Drive. It was very busy as usual, and we had to wait a while before getting a seat. We were able to sit at the bar after waiting about 20 […]

I recently read in the Vancouver Sun about Kazu, a new Japanese Restaurant opening in Burnaby and decided to check it out. I went with my aunt and a friend of ours, and we tried the sockeye salmon sashimi, a speciality roll, chicken yakitori, gyoza, grilled miso sablefish and their ume shiso roll. Everything was delicious, fresh […]

Sushi Sen

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Restaurants

Sushi in Squamish? Yes! Sushi Sen has the best sushi in Squamish, and it’s better than the majority of sushi restaurants in Vancouver. I have been known to road-trip it up to Squamish just to eat here. Today though I was just in the area, on my way home from Whistler with some friends. I […]
