Ichiro Japanese Restaurant

Hey everyone!

Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weather this weekend! On Friday, me & Phil went to Steveston to try out this restaurant called Ichiro Japanese Restaurant. I was scrolling through Zomato and came across their page and thought why not! 

When we first arrived, we were lucky to find a parking spot right in front of the restaurant. When we stepped in, it was packed full. We were told it was going to be a 45 minute wait, so we went to Blenz to kill some time before our table was ready. 

When we finally got our table and we were looking through the menu, we were shocked at how many options there were on the menu. It was difficult to pick, but I think we managed to choose some pretty good items. 

We also vlogged! So go watch our youtube video HERE

First off, we got the Tuna Gomaae ($8.95). I've never seen this at any other restaurant (If you know anywhere else that has this and is good, pls comment down below! Would love to know!). Tuna Gomaae is basically tuna sashimi pieces with sesame sauce. Simple but yet delicious. We loved this dish so much. Great starter and was definitely different from what we usually order at Japanese restaurants.


Tin Tin Seafood Restaurant

Hey everyone,

Our family loves going to Dim sum during weekends because we designate that time for family time. Last weekend was Moon Cake Festival so booking a table for Dim Sum last minute was probably not the best idea. I had to call up several places until I came across Tin Tin Seafood Restaurant and they had tables available. When we got there, surprisingly we found parking. They have their own parking lot but its not the biggest. When we walked in, it wasn't as busy as we thought it'll be, which was somewhat good, because we were starving.


Chatime Richmond

Hey everyone!

I've heard many good things about Chatime from my friends, and I finally found time to drop by to give this place a try! I went on a weekday so it wasn't busy, so I took my time looking at the menu to see what I wanted. The interior is very clean and bright. They also have tons of seating for a bubble tea place. Great place to sit and hang out with friends.

On their menu, they had a wide variety of bubble tea options. There were just too many to choose from so at the end I decided to choose one that was "starred", which was a fave among most people.
I ended up ordering the Jasmine Green Milk Tea with pearls, 80% ice & sugar.

I really like how they give you a choice in terms of how much ice & sugar you want in your drink. Majority of bubble tea places don't have this option and their drinks turn out pretty damn sweet. I like how in this case, I can enjoy a bubble tea without worrying how much sugar is placed into my drink because they give you an "option"!

They also provide free wifi, so you can go there and bring your laptop too! Like I said before, they have tons of seating and the space is very spacious!

I will definitely go back to try out more of their drinks! I thought the drink was a nice change for me. I usually just order honey milk tea but this definitely opened my mind to try out the other ones they have to offer. The jasmine wasn't too strong so you can still taste the milk tea. Really enjoyed it & possibly could be a new fave ;P

Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House

Hey Everyone,

This summer I had the chance to dine at Joe Fortes with some colleagues during lunch, and we had heard they had amazing oysters so we definitely had to try some. 

Straight to the food we go!


Tairyou Ichiba

Hey everyone,

After my Portfolio show at my school, we decided to eat somewhere near Metrotown. We came across this restaurant called Tairyou Ichiba. Apparently Phil tried this place with his family a long time ago but he forgot whether it was good or not. I always noticed this place because they have this very unique, traditional looking door. When we walked in, they have extremely high ceilings, which was a shocker to me because from the entrance it looks like it'll have an average ceiling height. Their interior is nicely decorated with Japanese posters all over the walls. At the bar area they also have the food menu at the top but its all written in Japanese words. I don't know the background of this restaurant or whether it is Japanese owned or not, BUT the waiter who was helping us was legit Japanese. There is always free parking along the side streets or there is pay parking at the front of the restaurant.


Bistro Verde

Hey Everyone,

So Nordstrom finally opened up in Vancouver last week, and while Jess and I were there checking things out, we noticed this restaurant on the 3rd floor by the men's section. It looked pretty cool from the outside so we had to try it out and let you all know how it is!


UYU Ice Cream

Hey everyone!

This years Summer trend has been rotating all around ice cream. New ice cream vendors are popping up all over the grounds of Vancouver. Even though Summer has ended and Fall is coming, it doesn't stop us Vancouverites from eating our favorite cold dessert. One of the latest additions to the Ice Cream list is UYU Ice Cream shop located in Gastown. Their interior has a very interesting pattern that repeats throughout the store but they kept everything else very minimalist, so it still feels very clean & chic.
