Collin came from the work and he wanted to eat anything but we can eat right away. It means he wanted to go out! 😀 As he hadn’t been to this restaurant, we decided to go. I had to take care of something for work on that day, so we left home a bit late and it was right on dinner time when we arrived. All tables were taken, and the server said it would be 15-20 min or so for a table available. We walked around and went back, and the restaurant was quieter.

The place is Hyoga Japanese Cuisine. It is a Japanese restaurant on Kingsway, close to Joyce Street. They serve Sushi and Japanese tapas like Izakaya dishes.

We ordered from their regular and special menu.

Toro Tataki Donburi Set
(7 pc of Seared Tuna Belly on bowl of Sushi Rice with homemade sesame vinaigrette, Small Salad, Miso Soup)

I wanted to eat this, and he told me to go for it. I liked this Donburi. The combination of Tuna belly and the vinaigrette was good.

Dynamite Roll and California Roll

These were his choice. At the end, there didn’t seem enough for him, so I told him to order one more roll.

Prawn Tempura

He is a prawn monster! He loves prawns.

Nasu Dengaku

Nasu Dengaku is Miso grazed eggplants. Some people may find it too sweet, and some people may find it too rich, but I like them.

He seemed to enjoy their food, so we will come back again.

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!

Unagi Roll

Umeshiso Roll

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

Nigiri Sushi (Aji & Uni)

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 went to Whistler for a day during the Canada Day long weekend. We came back to downtown Vancouver around the dinner time, and he said he wanted to have dinner somewhere before heading home.

I didn’t want to think much about where we were going, because I was tired. So, I followed him. He must have been hungry. He chose a Japanese fast food restaurant, Ebi Ten. They serve donburi, Sushi, Udon noodles, Tempura, etc. They are located across the Vancouver library on Robson street.

We ordered a main for each and some side dishes and tea. I only took a picture of the main plate… (Must be so tired.)

Ebiten Plate
(Tempura, California Rolls, Teriyaki Chicken)

He was so happy to have this. It is his favorite dish from here. 🙂
