Cafe L’Orangerie-Neighbourhood Gem

Cafe L’Orangerie is tucked away in a small plaza on 73rd and Hudson St. The location might sound obscure but they’ve been in business for a while now and if you’ve tried their Japanese spaghetti, you’ll probably want to come back for more.

My friends and I met up for an early dinner before watching Logan. There were already quite a few tables occupied at 5:30pm. They do take reservations! Read more

Ajisai Sushi Bar

Ajisai Sushi Bar has consistently topped lists of best sushi restaurants in Vancouver and finally I made it here to try it! I went super early right after they opened at 5pm so there was no line up. They are located right around the corner from London Drugs in Kerrisdale.

We started off with Ramune, a Japanese soda. If you’ve never had this before, it will be an interesting experience opening the bottle.

Ramen Danbo-Robson

Ramen Danbo opened up last year on W. 4th and opened another location on Robson as well. After watching Dr. Strange, my friends and I craved ramen on a cold rainy day so we headed over to their Robson location. It wasn’t too busy and after a quick wait, we were seated at the bar. The “bar” is actually a really low one instead of the high counter top kind that you usually think of when people say they’re sitting at the bar.

Each wooden stool is actually hollow inside and there’s a lid that you can remove so that you can place your coat and bag inside since there is usually no where to put your belongings in many ramen shops. I thought that was super nifty! Read more
