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.

Regular Spider Roll

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.

In the middle of April, my co-worker told me that there was an announcement from Whistler Blackcomb, which a lift ticket for BC residents would be 50% off on that coming Sunday. Although it hadn’t snowed much, we decided to go! We headed there the night before and had dinner in Whistler.

We went to Sachi Sushi. They are a Japanese restaurant and serve Izakaya style dishes, in addition to Sushi. My co-worker seems to know the owner for a long time.

After walking along Village Stroll path in Whistler, Collin and I went back to the hotel to have some rest. We watched TV and talked about where we were going for dinner. Well, he chose one of his favorite places rather than new places or famous places. 😀

Sachi Sushi is a Japanese restaurant and serves Izakaya style dishes as well as, of course, Sushi. I love this place, too. It is located on Main street in Village North.

When our sever came and greeted to us, I realized she was familiar! She was an instructor for the mountain while I worked for the mountain in a different position! Wow, it had been probably 5 years or more, since I saw her last time. Anyways, we caught up on each other’s lives while she was serving.

We ordered from their regular menu.

Although it says 2oz, our server said the person, who prepared, made a mistake to pour full amount of plum wine into the glass, without water. Haha. So, she brought some water on the side to us. Well, we didn’t mind drinking it as is! 🙂

Karaage was crispy outside and tender-moist inside, and it had ginger-soy taste, which was very good. Bulldog sauce came with it.

At the end, our server brought complimentary Umeshu + Sake (called Banzai in the menu, I think) to us, saying we seemed to like Umeshu so much! Thanks to her. We enjoyed both food and drinks. 🙂
