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.

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.

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.

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.

On the weeknight, I had to go to downtown Vancouver to have a meeting. It was almost 8:00pm when I finished, so I decided to take out. During the day, I saw a post on their Facebook, saying Uni (Sea Urchin) arrived in the store. Well then, I should eat them while they are fresh, right?

You know which restaurant I’m talking about. I went to Sushi Zero One.

I ordered from their today’s special menu.

Uni & Ikura Donburi
