It was another very cold day in the middle of January, yet it looked beautiful outside with blue sky. I went out to get some lunch and get some fresh air.

There are a few choices, and I chose Shiosai Sushi Bar. It is close to Joyce Skytrain station. They have only window counter seats in the restaurant, so I think they expect most people to go.

I ordered from their daily menu to go.

Chirashi (Assorted)

Chirashi literarily means scattering or spreading. I have their version of Chirashi for the first time. There were Saba, Toro, Salmon, Daikon pickles, deep-fried Tofu, cucumber, egg omelet, octopus, surf clam, and Tobiko, on top of the rice.

It was good. Nothing special, though.

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.

Miso Soup

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.

On weeknight in November, Collin was in charge of cooking, but he said he would bring some food home instead and asked me what I wanted to eat for dinner. I wasn’t feeling well for a while and was in the recovery mode, so I was thinking about something not oily.

I asked Sushi from Sushi Zero One. It is located on Pender Street downtown in Vancouver, walking distance from Waterfront station. As far as I look at their tweets, they always provide fresh fish, which is very important when it comes to Sushi or Sashimi. Since they no longer open on weekends, I have kept away myself.

He ordered from their regular menu.

Downtown Combination
(Tuna Roll, Tuna Nigiri, Salmon Nigiri, Ebi Nigiri, Tai Nigiri, Tamago, Saba Nigiri, Ika Nigiri)

It has been almost a year since the last visit? I hope they can open on weekends again.
