Sushi Yoi

After multiple failed attempts at eating here (closed every time!), I was finally able to come on a day they were open! I came here after work with A for a much needed catch up session! Aburi oshi sushi is one of my favourite things to eat, so when I saw that they offered it…

The Gray Olive Cafeteria 

I hadn’t seen J in quite a long time, so when he called me to go out for brunch, I couldn’t refuse. What I drank: Latte ($4.25) This is one of the saddest lattes I’ve ever had and I’ve had a fair number of Starbucks lattes. I think my expectations were a lot higher because…

Passion8 Dessert Cafe

Shaved ice or 팥빙수 is one of my favourite desserts. There has been a plethora of shops offering them in Vancouver and I decided to check out Passion8 upon missvancouverpiggy‘s recommendation. I went here with Q on a nice April afternoon. What we ate: Matchacha – Japanese matcha powder, mochi with red bean on snow…

Yui Japanese Bistro

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw a picture of some amazing aburi oshi sushi. When I clicked on the geo tag I was so happy to see that it was located in Downtown! I first went here for lunch with A, and it was so good I went back a couple…

Emvy Lashes

I’ve always wanted to try out eyelash extensions and when I saw my twin do them and how great they looked I took the plunge and went for it. I went to Emily of missvancouverpiggy fame, and she was great! She was super nice and friendly and I had a great time. I may have…

Kosoo Restaurant

Since I’ve already been here before, and I tried their lunch special, this will be a pretty quick post. I was scrolling on Facebook when I saw Kosoo’s promotion for Chicken and Beer (or Soju) for $35 (see promo here), and the deal was too good to pass up! I went here with a few…

Joey Burrard

This location is my least favourite. Every single time I come here it takes forever to flag down a waitress and the tables are always dirty. Today I came by with V and the table we got had crumbs everywhere so we flagged down a waitress to wipe the table down and she ended up…

Al Porto Ristorante

My experience with Italian food is severely limited to Anton’s and HK-style spaghetti. So when the co-op student at my office was having her farewell lunch I was happy to hear that it would be at Al Porto. At lunch time, Al Porto has a really good lunch deal where you can get a soup…

[Beauty Review] L’Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub

One thing I struggle with is very dry hands. When winter rolls around no amount of lotion can keep my hands from flaking. L’Occitane is one of my favourite brands, and the sales associate introduced me to their one minute hand scrub which helps to exfoliate dead and flaky skin. The L’Occitane One Minute Hand Scrub…

TMix Tea & Dessert Bar

I always love meeting up with Q because we can talk for hours and hours and she puts up with all my randomness and drama. After a really filling meal at Taishoken we drove up to TMix for some desserts! When we arrived the cafe was empty except for one table, but it got busier…
