Green Leaf Sushi: Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi

Green Leaf Sushi has been on my must visit list for quite some time after seeing countless pics of their aburi oshi sushi. We finally found ourselves in the area after first hitting the UBC Botanical Garden Tree Walk and came for a late lunch. While the restaurant was still fairly busy, we did manage to find a table right away.

Nuba (Kits): Don’t Waste My Time

As I’ve mentioned on my post for Nuba Gastown, each Nuba location is run by an independent management team.

Linh Café – Brunch

Linh Café is a cute little French/Vietnamese bistro in Kits that occupies the former Café Régalade location. In fact, the current owner, Tai Nguyen, previously worked at both La Régalade (in West Van) and Café Régalade previously – two restaurants that I’ve always been fond of.

Supermarine is a newish restaurant that opened up in the former location of Abigail’s Party in Kits. There’s still remnants of Abigail’s in this tiny restaurant (sister restaurant to Wildebeest) as can be seen in the names of some of the cocktails as well as the name that appears on the bill that you receive at the end of your meal.
