Shiro - Vancouver, BC

After a morning of grocery getting and mindless window shopping, I find myself ravenous, and in need of lunch quickly. Oh, Shiro. Shiro is always handy for a generous lunch. So here I am. Me and my little red senior’s cart.

NaRi Sushi - Kelowna, BC

I’m at NaRi Sushi today for a quick lunch stop. NaRi Sushi is located in the Snyatan shopping complex, several doors down from Bamboo Chopsticks (Click here for my Bamboo Chopsticks visit.)

When I first started coming out to Kelowna I would see signs and TV adverts in my hotel room referring to K-Town. For the longest time I was wondering, “So there’s a Korea Town in Kelowna? Where is it?”
Deserving of an eye-roll, I know. I’m so thankful I never opened my mouth and asked anyone about a K-Town in Kelowna.

Tempura Udon ($10.00)

Ono's Sushi - Abbotsford, BC

So long Nanaimo! As I make my way back home I’ll share with you some places on the way. First stop is Abbottsford. I need London Drugs, but I also need an easy off-ramp-and-then-back-on-ramp to the highway type of London Drugs. Highstreet shopping centre fits these criteria.

Since I’m stopping I thought I might as well grab a bite to eat. Ono’s Sushi was the closest eatery to where I found a vacant parking stall. So Ono’s it is.

Ebi Sunomono ($5.00)

Bistro Taiyo - Nanaimo, BC

The last time I was at Bistro Taiyo it was a little Japanese home-style café with a hand drawn menu adorned with a cartoon sunshine staring back at you. That was a while ago. Now Bistro Taiyo is a sushi bar. The restaurant is tucked in the Heritage Mews in the Old City Quarter just off of Wesley Street. It’s right next to 899 Kitchen.

Hello Sushi - Nanaimo, BC

Oh my goodness. I am so behind in my work. I have an assignment due in a few days. I hope I make the deadline. This is making me a little sweaty and stressed.
But I gotta eat right? So I take a break and go for something quick.

Why hello there, sushi...

Eden Bento Café - Kamloops, BC

Eden Bento. Here's another little eatery that has been languishing on my list for some time. The location is once again familiar, the last time I wrote about this space it was known as Sip’s Martinis and Tapas.
Eden Bento serves up Japanese style meals-in-a-box with a side of Korean flair.

Time, or lack thereof, often dictates where and what I can eat. I need something relatively quick tonight. "Quick" as in I don’t have time to linger around three courses and drinks, but not so "quick" that I need to order through a wireless intercom system.

Burger & Cafe JOY - Kamloops, BC

Jeez, June has been busy! So busy, that I feel I deserve a burger today. Since Burger & Café Joy is inside the Sahali Mall it’s a good way to wait out the rain. (What is up with all this rain? I thought I moved away from this.) It’s been some time since I last chatted about Burger & Café JOY; this place can bring you all kinds of happiness.

Karrage ($3.25)

Tiger Ramen - Kamloops, BC

Tiger Ramen is a ramen joint in Kamloops.

Isn’t it great to be able to say that? Let’s say it again: Tiger Ramen is a ramen joint in Kamloops.
I had been doing not so convenient drive-bys, on a regular basis for weeks in anticipation of Tiger Ramen’s opening. The last time I did multiple drive-bys and Peeping Tom Dances in front of a yet-to-be opened eatery, was last summer waiting for the Ploughman’s Lunch and Coffee to open.

KURO Asian Cuisine - Chilliwack, BC

Kuro Asian Cuisine is one of the restaurants in the Eagle's Landing retail complex in Chilliwack. Did you know this place existed? I didn't, until I was given a little driving tour around Chilliwack recently. Eagle's Landing is fairly new, and there are still many retail spaces up for lease among the anchor stores.

It's very quiet.

Authentic Teriyaki Burger and Cafe JOY - Kamloops, BC

Yōshoku in Kamloops? There is now yōshoku in Kamloops, in the form of Authentic Teriyaki Burger and Café JOY. Don’tcha love the name? It’s the kind of name that you must read several times and experiment with different ways of saying it. Look at the signage. It’s almost as if JOY is an afterthought. It looks so lonely way out there on the right. Tell me JOY, are you part of the name or just an interjection of happiness?

Is it:
|Authentic Teriyaki Burger| and |Café JOY|

Or is it:
|Authentic Teriyaki Burger and Café,| JOY!

Or could it be:
