Archive for the ‘Lansdowne station’ Category

My friend and I were at Steveston for the Salmon Festival and got us to cool down at the cafe. After we left the cafe, we went back to the place where we parked her car. By the time we got to the car, it was getting dark and we were talking about dinner. As I’m not familiar with Richmond, she suggested some places and I chose one. However, when we arrived the restaurant, it wasn’t open. So, she was thinking about somewhere else.

We headed to Seto Japanese Restaurant. It is on Alexandra street, located between Garden City Road and No 3 Road. We drove in the area, so I’m not sure about the exact location, but it looks like you can walk from Canada Line Lansdowne station. They serve authenticated Japanese food that their website says.

We ordered from their dinner menu.

It was getting greasy eating at the same time as Tempura, I was happy to have them!

Umeshiso Roll

The combination of pickled Japanese plum and Shiso leaf always helps refreshing our mouths.

Nigiri Sushi (Aji & Uni)

Regular Spider Roll

This tasted good, but by the time when we got this, we were full by the other Sushi and fried food. We should have ordered less at the beginning.

Well, dessert is always for a different stomach, right? :p Once we settled our stomach, we had this Japanese confections.

Cream Mitsumame with Green Tea Ice Cream

This should be called Anmitsu rather than Mitsumame. “An” for Anmitsu indicates pasted red beans. “Mitsu” is brown sugar syrup. “Ma-me” is beans. Anyways, you can refer to this.

Overall, the food was not bad, although we had heard some rumor that their food wasn’t good.

Note that the pricing seems up since, as far as I saw their website.

When I went to Nikkei Centre Craft & Bake Fair, I saw a table selling chocolate and the company name was familiar. I talked to the sales person and noticed the shop is located in Richmond and they sometimes sell products at Farmer’s Market in North Vancouver.

La Chocolaterie produces smooth and melting chocolate with lots of different ingredients and colours. As the shop is in Richmond, I have never been there. So, this was a great opportunity to try their products.
