One Friday night, I didn’t want to ask my friends to go out, because I went out the night before, but also I didn’t want to cook (as usual?). I looked outside, and it was blue sky. Well, I should go out anyways, right? So, I walked to this place.

Shiosai Sushi Bar is located close to Joyce Skytrain station. The store has only window counter tables that maybe max 7 people can eat in. When I arrived at the store, there was a line up a bit as well as people waiting. So, it took 20 min to take home. You can call them and pick up, too.

I ordered from their daily menu. Negitoro was sold out, so I chose shrimp roll, but I should have ordered something else, as dynamite roll also had shrimp in it. ๐Ÿ˜› It was fine, as Collin loves shrimp so that he had some as night snack.

One night for dinner, Collin asked a difficult request that he wanted to go to a Japanese restaurant where he can eat Sushi and Kara-age. Some Izakaya places serve Karaage but less quality Sushi or just one kind, and some Sushi places serve Sushi but Kara-age. Some are fine dining, and some others are so popular that you have to wait for long time. Finally, I picked up two places, and he chose one.

Juno Sushi Bistro is located on Davie street, close to Seymour street. They serve quality food with quality ingredients. The bistro is small, which can serve maybe 5 for counter table and 15 max for tables.

We ordered from their dinner menu.

Plum wine (Japanese Ume Shu)

Collin ate the Japanese plum in the drink as well. When you make Umeshu, you put lots of Japanese plums with Sake. So, the plum absorbs Sake so that the plum tastes exact same as Umeshu.

Hot Tea (Japanese Matcha & Genmaicha)

Pork Belly Kaku-ni
(Red Wine Braised Fraser Valley Pork Belly Served with Free Range Egg)

Oh, this egg tasted great. Collin usually doesn’t like boiled eggs, but he loved this one. Kaku-ni was soft and tasty, too.

Chicken Kara-age
(Deep-fried Maple Hill Farm Free Range Chicken with Special Spice)

Dynamite Roll and Nigiri Sushi
(Dynamite Roll, Nigiri: Inari, Big Eye Red Tuna, Toro, Aburi Toro, Ikura, Ebi, Tamago)

Collin loved the Aburi Toro and suggested me to order one. He also tried Inari and Tamago and enjoyed them.

Ebi Mayo
(Beer-Battered Shrimp, Grapefruit, Pistachio, Organic Green with Sweet Mayo Sauce)

This was definitely different from the other places’ as Ebi Mayo. As you can see the menu, they use citrus. So, mayo and citrus combination was interesting. If they don’t serve right away, this would be soggy.

Kushi Katsu 2pcs
(Panko-fried Fraser Valley Pork & Onion with Spicy Sesame Sauce)

Collin said the pork was a little hard, but I didn’t think so.

Black Sesame Ice Cream (Single)

I wasn’t sure if Collin liked black sesame taste, so I ordered single scoop. Well, he enjoyed and ate more than half! ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a little sweeter for me but I liked it, too. I can’t really describe how the taste was like, so try it yourself. ๐Ÿ™‚

My friend seemed to hear from her friend that their Rice Omelette was good. Maybe, I’m gonna try that next time.

I wrote in the post a few days ago what happened on Collin’s birthday night that his dad couldn’t make it so that we had to find a restaurant and had dinner by ourselves. So, the birthday dinner with his dad was rescheduled in a few days.

The restaurant booked was Fable Kitchen. As we liked when we went for brunch, Collin suggested his dad. The restaurant is on 4th Avenue, close to Burrard street. It was early weekdays, but the restaurant was packed.

We ordered from their diner menu. We were a group of 5 people, so we shared some appetizers and each ordered an entree. As Collin and his dad know their manager, we got some complimentary dishes again.

As a bigger group, it is difficult to take enough time to take focused pictures. Besides, I forgot to take pictures of drinks…

Here are appetizers to share.

Bread with Green Onion Butter (Sorry, I can’t remember the exact name…)

Mushroom Flat Bread
(Olive oil, Onion jam, Arugula, Parmesan)

Note for me. I liked canned tuna, but the best was chickpea fritters. Spaghetti wasn’t so special to me, maybe because it was too small to share with 5 people and I didn’t have much to enjoy the taste.

Here are entrees.

Duck Breast
(Braised red cabbage, Parsnip, Duck confit croquette)

Potato Crusted Chicken
(Ratatouille)

Halibut & Chorizo
(Chowder, Mussels, Tomatoes, Fennel)

My choice was Halibut & Chorizo, and I liked it. Collin liked the chicken so much.

And, dessert. Basically, I liked to eat this, and Collin’s dad insisted that I should order! ๐Ÿ˜€ (He knows I’m a food monster.)

Lemon Pot de Creme
(Lemon granita, Gin, Foam)

The manager brought the other dessert, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mascarpone Cheesecake
(Carrot cake, Yogurt anglaise)

You know what? I’m glad Collin’s dad insisted that I should order. I really liked the Lemon Pot de Creme! I usually don’t like sour stuff, but this one was well-balanced with sweet and sour.
