Shizen Ya (Fairview): Organic Japanese Food

Shizen Ya is a unique chain of sushi restaurants (they have one location on Hornby and this location on West Broadway). This isn’t your run-of-the-mill sushi joint that pumps out cheap California rolls.

East is East (Main St): The Silk Route Feast

Many moons ago, I recall reading about the Silk Route in Social Studies. Truthfully, I don’t remember much about it. But if it tasted as good as our visit to East is East, maybe I would have remembered more.

Curry House CoCo Ichibanya – Shibuya (Tokyo 2016): Japanese Curry

One of the best meals that I had in Japan was when we came across this curry house while we were in Shibuya. Curry House Coco Ichibanya is a popular chain that’s been around since 1978. Read the rest of this entry

Cafe de l’Orangerie – Japanese Italian Fusion

Cafe de l’Orangerie has been on my list of places to try for quite some time… especially since I enjoy both Japanese and Italian food.

Thai Express (Metrotown) – Food Court Eats

Thai Express opened up in the Metrotown food court earlier this year… it’s more like Thai-ish food that’s been modified to work in a fast food environment.

I’ve been wanting to try Jitlada for a very long time… but, for whatever reason, we haven’t been able to find the time.

Thai New West – Thai Food in Sapperton

You know, I love restaurant names that are unambiguous.  Take, for example, Thai New West… it’s a Thai restaurant located in New West.  It’s not like Cambie Vietnamese Restaurant that’s not actually on Cambie St. Read the rest of this entry

Thai House (Fairview) – All You Can Eat Thai Food

Although we like the Thai House, we haven’t been back to this particular location for a long time.  In fact, this was the first Thai restaurant that we’ve ever tried (all the way back in the late 80’s).  If you’ve ever been to the Thai House, you know that they have a fairly extensive menu.  I remember being surprised on our first visit when the waiter knew each dish by number and took the orders at our table all by memory and got it all right (and we had a big group of people with us).

Just before Christmas last year, we were making a concerted effort to avoid shopping at malls due to all of the crowds.  We found ourselves around the Cambie area and I remembered that there was a new Thai restaurant that opened up in the old SalaThai spot.
