The last time I was at Yuu Japanese Tapas was quite a few years ago. I took my parents here for dinner to check out their “new” location as they had expanded into another larger storefront but still in Continental Square.
My dad had the Chicken Cutlet Rice with Egg and Onion which came with miso soup and a small tray of side dishes including Japanese pickle, edamame and marinated bean sprouts. The chicken was very tender but I thought the sauce could’ve been stronger? It wasn’t very flavourful to me. They were very generous with the portion of rice here. Read more
I’m back on the poke bandwagon again! I’ve pretty much tried almost all the poke places now and I was going to cross Hooked Poke Bar off my list too.
Hooked Poke Bar is located on the corner of Hornby and Nelson and it’s also next to the second location of Pokerrito. That’s intense competition! Read more
With a name like The Choc Pot, this dessert cafe was just calling my name. As you may have guessed they specialize in tantalizing chocolate treats. This is where chocolate fantasies become reality.
They have various locations in Sydney and I went to the one in Regent Place. You place your order at the counter and once the desserts are ready, a server will bring it over to you. The menu includes crepes, waffles and more! Read more
Mamak is a popular Malaysian eatery located in Chinatown. They always have line ups outside! I didn’t get to try them on my last visit to Sydney so this time we came early to line up. The turnover rate is pretty fast though so the wait isn’t too bad.
While you wait, you can watch the chefs make roti through the window. I knew we had to order some! Read more
JapaDog has an actual restaurant at the McArthurGlen Outlet. This is probably one of the more affordable food options here if you’re looking for a quick snack.
This JapaDog store has a lot of seating and it’s located near the back corner of the outlet next to the washrooms. The menu is similar to their downtown store.
I wish we had more cafes that served brunch like this in Vancouver! And I mean all day everyday! Le Monde is a quick walk from Central Station in the Surry Hills area. Their matcha hotcakes are very insta-worthy!
We didn’t want to wait for a table so we sat at this small “bar” area at the front of the cafe. Read more
Snackshot is a new HK style dessert shop in the Marpole area. I still remember when this location was Bubble World back when I was in high school! It’s located next to Qoo Cafe on Granville and 64th. The outside doesn’t look that inviting but the decor inside is on point.
I don’t normally gravitate towards Asian desserts (I’m more into cakes and pastries) but I was interested in trying their dessert platter and the Vitasoy Bulldog drink. Also, it took me 20+ years before I could accept red bean as a dessert.
