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.

Nigiri and Gunkan Sushi

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.

When the rainy season started in the middle of October, I just took time to wake up one Sunday. Because of it, I missed the lunch time and also lost motivation to go see leaves turned to yellow or red. So, I just decided to go to downtown Vancouver to walk around.

When I was walking, I felt starving. I passed by my Shiatsu place close to Harbour Centre, and the Shiatsu therapist and I walked to Donburi ya, as he said he wasn’t busy. Donburi ya is in West End of downtown Vancouver. It was almost 3:00pm, and I’m glad that they open and that I can order some meal at supper time.

I ordered from their bowl menu.

I can’t remember if I ordered Miso soup as a combo… Well, it was good, as the weather was wet and getting cold.

Compared to the last time when I had the same one, Negitoro is chopped but not mashed. I don’t know if they changed the way or forgot to mash. I preferred the mashed way.

While I was walking around in the previous night, I found two restaurants on Blackcomb mountain base where I haven’t been. One was Italian, and the other was Japanese. When I arrived at the Italian one, the restaurant wasn’t open yet, and there was 20 min til open. As I skipped lunch because of such a beautiful weather to ski, I was too hungry to wait. So, I went to the Japanese one.

Nagomi Sushi was right beside the Blackcomb base. It was before 6:00pm, but some tables were filled and some were already reserved. I didn’t have to wait, since I was only myself.

I ordered from their regular menu.
