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)

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.

I was walking from Granville Island to downtown, and after I stopped by at a coffee shop, I decided to continue to walk on Denman and Robson. Having thought about dinner, I still had some leftover, but I didn’t think they were enough as my dinner. Walking on Robson, I looked at their menu, as I hadn’t been there for a while.

Donburi ya is in West End of downtown Vancouver. They serve Donburi (rice in bowl) as well as Udon noodles and some appetizer.

I ordered from their appetizer menu.
