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
(Pickled Plum & Shiso)

The combination of pickled Japanese plum and Shiso leaf always helps refreshing our mouths.

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

Cream Mitsumame with Green Tea Ice Cream at Seto Japanese Restaurant in Richmond

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.

Collin and I wanted to go to this restaurant for long time, and Top Chef competition reminded us! (The final four completed at the restaurant.) Since they don’t take reservations, we just had to go there.

Bao Bei Chinese Brasserie is located in Chinatown, about 15+ min walking distance from Stadium Skytrain station. It is a bit unease area. A homeless person was kneeling and begging money in front of the restaurant. But food was good, so wait inside the door. We waited for 20 min before being seated at counter.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Cocktail, Jinzi
(Gin, Aperol, Fernet Branca, rose/ginger water, Fresh lemon, Lemon Oil)

Cocktail, Chino Margarita
(Dried tangerine peel infused reposado tequila, Grated ginger, Fresh lime, Egg white, Chili salt/sugar rim)

The bartender said this was the most popular one. 🙂
