Chapter 12: Ajisai
Sushi to me is more than just raw fish and rice. It’s an art form that requires years of practice to master. Mediocre sushi restaurant are a dime a dozen in Vancouver, but truly authentic sushi is very hard to come by. Based on recommendations from others food blogs, CL and I visited Ajisai sushi located in an ally next to London Drugs on West Blvd and 41st Ave. This little Japanese...
Chapter 11: Prata Man
For the past little I’ve fallen into the vicious cycle of studying all day in the library and eating at home. One can only stand instant noodles and ham sandwiches for so long. So after finishing up my midterm last Friday, CL and I gathered a couple friends and visited a joint I’ve always wanted to try, Prata Man. Prata Man is located on Garden City and Capstan Way in Richmond...
Chapter 10: Crab Pot Restaurant (Seattle)
As you can see tell from my previous posts, I don’t really spend that much time with my family. So last weekend I headed down to Seattle with my parents for some shopping, sight seeing and eating. Having never been to downtown Seattle, I chose the most touristy thing to do, which is to visit the pike place market and have lunch at the famous crab pot. Pike...
Chapter 9: Alleluia Cafe
Like most people out there, I get weird cravings from time to time. A few weeks ago I was dying for some HK style cafe food. For those of you who don’t know, HK style cafe serves chinese interpretations of western dishes such as spaghetti bolognese, baked pork chop etc. One of the best in town is alleluia cafe, which is located across the street from Richmond public market on Westminster...
Chapter 8: Guu Garden
After trying the original Guu on Robson and Thurlow, I’ve been craving Japanese izakaya ever since. So when a good friend of mine was leaving for exchange, I suggested we have a farewell dinner at Guu gardens. I’ve heard good things about Guu garden from many friends. From its unique menu to its relatively quiet and spacious dining room, it was a recipe for success. We were also...
Chapter 7: Hokkaido Ramen Santouka
It seems like writing have taken over my life as of late. Reports, essays, letters and emails, you name it, I wrote it. I was pumping out thousands of words a day and I was sick and tired of writing for a while. Every time I looked at my keyboard I felt sick. That’s the reason why this post has been delayed for a week. Anyways, I digress. This week’s post is...
Chapter 6: Portland, Oregon
For the B.C. day long weekend CL and I headed down to Portland for 3 days with a couple friends. The drive down to Oregon was long and tedious but I wasn’t the one driving so I didn’t complain too much. The weather was extremely hot and the shopping was disappointing to say the least, but I cheered myself up by doing the one thing I’m good at, eating! We stayed at a hotel...
Chapter 5: Dai Jang Kum
The BC day long weekend passed in the blink of an eye and it’s back to work for CL and I on this gorgeous Wednesday Tuesday. We drove down to Portland for shopping last weekend with a couple friends and managed to sample some delicious American cuisine along the way. My next post is going to be a compilation of all the memorable dishes we had in Portland so please stay tuned. In the...
Chapter 4: Zeffirelli's Spaghetti Joint
Last Friday night, my quest for delicious and affordable pasta took me to Zeffirelli’s Spaghetti Joint. Located on the heart of Robson street, Zeffirelli’s is hidden above Cactus Club cafe, only accessible through a long flight of stairs. Like me, you probably walked by this place countless times without acknowledging its existence. This restaurant was recommended to me by a...
Recipe 3: Spicy Chicken Udon
I’ve been having a craving for spicy foods lately, but unlike SY, I have a low spicy tolerance. So I decided to cook my own dish so I could adjust how spicy I wanted it to be :D You can substitute chicken for beef or pork but I’m not a big fan of red meat so here you go! Spicy Chicken Udon Ingredients: 1 piece chicken breast 1/3 medium onion, sliced 1-2 scallion, chopped 1 cup spinach 1...
Chapter 3: Zakkushi Charcoal Grill - Denman
Freshly recovered from the heavy drinking on Friday night, I headed out to English Bay on Saturday afternoon with CL and some friends. After tanning and playing frisbee for a couple hours, we headed to Zakkushi on Denman for dinner. Zakkushi is a Japanese restaurant that specializes in BBQ skewers and the decor was traditional Japanese with an open...
Chapter 2: The Keg Steakhouse and Bar - Yaletown
Time really flies when you are out enjoying the sun and eating delicious food with friends. The weather has been amazing this past week and I hope you’re all enjoying the sun as well!. After getting off work last Friday, my coworkers and I headed to The Keg in Yaletown to unwind and have a little get together before they leave for a trade show in Los Angeles. This was my first time...
Recipe 1/2: Ferrero Rocher and Nutella Cookies
Today is quite a special day, it’s SY’s birthday! So since he loves his foods, I decided to whip up something for him. I remember him telling me his favourite chocolate was Ferrero Rocher, so after some ‘research’, I decided to make Ferrero Rocher cookies. It’s my first time making them, so I was worried that they wouldn’t turn out that well. Since I was in a baking mood, I decided to also make...
Chapter 1: Guu Original
Hello everyone, I’m SY and this post marks the beginning of an amazing chapter of my life. I’ve been contemplating about starting a blog for years but only recently have I convinced myself that I’ll be able to keep this blog running. I also persuaded my lovely girlfriend CL to join me because I wanted to use this blog as our platform to share the food adventures that we go on...
