I got news a few month back that this organic donuts shop was moved and re-opened in a new location. In the middle of November, not knowing where it was, I walked on Pender street after I went to Shiatsu, I found the shop! Having excited, as Collin finished his shift earlier and I was about to meet him, I sent a text if he wanted to have some. Although he asked vanilla or maple or jelly filled, they didn’t have such. 😛

The new location of Cartems Donuterie is close from Waterfront station. The shop now has some tables so that you can eat in. They offer organic donuts that cost $3 per donut. There are gluten free ones, too.

I liked early grey one! I can’t remember what the today’s special was, but it was like churro-ish or Denish-ish.

Compared to hiking, walking for shopping makes me tired more. Well, I went to Shiatsu after having coffee. Once it’s done, I continued to look for a gift for my friend’s birthday. Eventually, time was up, I mean, it was almost 9 o’clock, and I thought I should have dinner somewhere.

Shizenya is located on Hornby street in downtown Vancouver, close to Robson Square. There is another store on Broadway, which I have never been. They serve organic and healthy Japanese food, using brown rice. Generally, I don’t like brown rice, but I can eat their food with no problem. At the last visit, I asked about quinoa dishes, and quinoa stuff is on their feature menu now!

This roll is always good! I ordered last time, too.

Quinoa & Wild Rice Tofu Salad

I wasn’t sure what wild rice was, although I asked the server, so I ordered this. Well, I seem not to like them. Sorry, those are not my thing.

Anago and Toro Tataki Nigiri Sushi

Anago (salt-water eel) is rare to have. Anago is sweet and softer than Unagi, if I have to describe the difference. Both Nigiri was good.

I have to make a note here that it looks like they open Sundays now!

We walked from a booth to another at Eat! Vancouver and found this ice cream place. Although I don’t like coconut bits, we all decided to try, because it says organic, dairy free, soy free, gluten free, and no GMO! Coconut Bliss sells ice cream in a few grocery stores in Vancouver.

At the booth, there were lots of flavours to choose from.

This is what I chose: Cherry Amaretto

It was interesting taste. I thought this spoonful was enough for a day because at first it tasted smooth but at the end it was rich, which is much healthier than one scoop of the other ice cream products.
