In early December, Collin said he wanted to go a Chinese restaurant in Chinatown, where we went a while ago and liked their food. They don’t take a reservation, so we just headed to the restaurant. When we arrived, there were a lot of people inside standing, and we realized there was a note on the door, saying closed for private function. Sigh. We came all way down here and couldn’t go. We headed back to Stadium station and were thinking about an alternative.

Collin said he wouldn’t mind eating Sushi, so we went to Tsuki Sushi Bar. It is on Abbott street, close to Pender. They serve mainly Sushi, and I don’t think they have any deep-fry stuff.

We ordered from their regular and special menu.

I liked Abbot Roll, which consists of Tuna, BBQ salmon, skin, lettuce, cucumber, mayo and Masago. We didn’t like their Dynamite Roll last time and totally forgot about it. We still didn’t like it. Their Dynamite roll was torched with Tsuki sauce.

We are not a fan of Uni, sea urchin, but since it was on special, I ordered one. It was fresh, so I didn’t mind eating it.

Torotaku Roll, Kappa Roll, Rainbow Roll, Kani Special Roll

I liked Torotaku last time, so I ordered it. It is a combination of Toro and Takuwan (pickled Daikon radish). Kani Special Roll was good. It contained real Dungeness crab. I’m not sure if I liked Rainbow Roll, although we ordered last time, too. I wouldn’t order it next time.

We were full, but he had already decided to order this dessert since he saw it on their special menu.

Mochi Ice Cream 2pcs

This is ice cream inside covered by Mochi (pounded sticky rice). There were two choices to choose from, vanilla or match. Collin ordered two vanilla, and I ordered one each. Mochi on match was little bit dry.

They open Sundays now. Their price seems up quite a bit, compared to the last time.

Spring cleaning seems common here in Canada, but a big cleaning up before the end of the year is my thing from my culture, and it is a big work, not only regular cleaning like vacuuming or cleaning bath and washroom, but also blinds, windows, fridge, cupboard, etc. I read a blog post that she was saying one place at a day! Oh, that I can try. So, I started from November little by little.

To organize cupboards, I wanted to buy some organizers and went to Daiso (Japanese Dollar shop) in Richmond. Anyways, thinking about how I wanted to organize or if the size was right, I was exhausted. To take a rest, I went to the food court in Aberdeen Centre where Daiso was.

There were lots of choices. You can go for some small savory food, or dessert. I chose Mazazu Crepe. The original shop is in Japan, and it is franchised in many countries. As name indicates, it is a creperie. You can see some samples in the showcase.

I ordered from their huge menu.

Look, how big it was! When it handed to me, my eyes were just rolling. 😀 I just wanted to have some sweets, that’s all. As I went there alone, I had to eat them all myself. Whipped cream, strawberries were inside, and soft ice cream was on top with chocolate sauce. I liked it, but next time I want to share with someone. 🙂

And, a picture of the restaurant exterior.

Before I headed to Aberdeen Centre, the sunset was beautiful at the Canada Line station.

As I wrote, Collin and I went to De Dutch for the weekend brunch. After we paid, I looked at the receipt, there was an interesting statement written.

“Enjoy a LEONIDAS fresh Belgian Chocolate absolutely FREE today, on per receipt. Also 15% discount on everything, including flown in fresh French pastries & chocolates.”

I asked Collin right away what Leonidas means. He said it must be a store name. I wondered where the store was, and while we were walking back to Canada Place street along Convention Centre, I saw the name! It was a tiny cafe & store at Coal Harbour for chocolates or stuff.

We went inside and showed the receipt, and I got a piece of chocolate for free. It was, I believe, hazelnut chocolate. This piece was quite big. I forgot to take a picture of the showcase, but there were a lot of kinds of chocolate pieces. Also, there were macarons, too.

Collin ordered this hot chocolate, as he didn’t want to leave the cafe without buying anything. The hot chocolate was quite sweet.

I added this place to my list for gift occasion.
