After I got some dessert from the donuts shop, I met up with Collin. Although it was a weekend, he finished his shift earlier and he said he was starving, so we decided to go somewhere close to where we were. Since he was starving, we skipped the restaurants that serve light meals.

We ended up going in Cactus Club Cafe on Burrard Street. It is across from the Burrard Skytrain station. They have various dishes in the menu.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Szechuan Chicken Lettuce Wraps
(Local Chicken, Sweet and Spicy Szechuan glaze, Peanuts, Wontons, Korean Chili Sauce, Spicy Yogurt)

This was his choice. I had some bite and liked it, although it was quite spicy. He loved this and said it was addictive. 🙂

Wor Wonton Soup
(BBQ Pork, Peking Duck Broth, Lemongrass and BBQ Pork Wontons, Asian Noodles, Baby corn, Mixed Vegetables)

He also ordered this. The broth was really salty to me, so he can’t even drink much.

Fish Tacos
(Ocean wise Lingcod, Chipotle Aioli, Shredded Green Cabbage, Salsa Fresca)

This was my choice, as I read a blog post saying it tasted so good. Yeah, I liked this. There was fried fish in the taco. As dinner, it might be small, though.

After the busy work storm was left, there was a quiet weekday. I was texting with my friend after work, and we ended up going for dinner. It was Friday and I had been busy, so she suggested somewhere close to both of us.

She had an idea, which was Hyoga Japanese Cuisine, on Kingsway, close to Joyce Street. They serve Sushi, tapas, as well as some of combo menu. The restaurant is really small, and it doesn’t have noisy Izakaya atmosphere, but it is casual and comfortable to eat there. There are lunch dishes on their menu, so I asked we can order. The server said you can order but pricing will be added $1.50.

We ordered from their regular and special menu.

Aburi Yuzu Salmon Sashimi

The creamy Yuzu sauce was interesting, and my friend really liked the sauce.

Nasu Dengaku

Nasu is eggplant, and Dengaku is sweetened Miso grazed. I liked this dish!

Korroke and Fried Fish Set
(1pc of Panko Crusted Aji (striped mackerel), and 2pcs each of Pacific Cod, Creamy Corn Croquette with Tonkatsu Sauce, Salad, Rice, Miso Soup)

We both enjoyed fried Aji. I generally like cream corn croquette, but I don’t know if they actually made by hand. (Sorry…) I preferred one from Fujiya.

Pork Okonomiyaki

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savory pancake. This one was quite soft than I usually make at home.

They serve a lot of Sushi, so I might want to order some next time.

I had a meeting in North Vancouver, and the meeting took a long time. We called the restaurant till what time they are open for lunch. They open till 2pm. When we arrived after 1:30pm, the restaurant was packed with people. We even waited for a while, even though we had a reservation.

Hamaei Japanese Restaurant is in the Westview Mall and serves authentic Japanese food. They have lunch menu including bento box, which is well-balanced food.

We ordered from their lunch menu.
