Shizenya broadway

I’m one of those people who can’t get enough of Japanese food and Shizenya has been one of my favorites for a long time. I usually go to the one downtown but we were coming back from school one day and went by the Granville location so we decided to go there instead.

Matcha swirl milk bread

This Matcha swirl milk bread is unlike any other because it has Matcha spread swirled into the middle! The Matcha swirl adds a nice earthy flavor to the loaf without being overpowering it or adding too much Matcha flavor. If you don’t care for Matcha, use vanilla extract or cacao powder in the condensed milk… Read More »


  I was super excited to go to Shizenya because they offer brown rice with all their menu items, use organic greens and claims to use no additives/msg in their food….in other words, everything here is made wholesome and fresh. I really appreciated that they did that here because restaurants that offer brown rice is… Read More »

Coconut macaroons with chocolate drizzle

I can’t believe that Christmas is just around the corner! Time really does fly by doesn’t it? Christmas feels strange to me this year though because I’m away from home and Christmas just isn’t as big of a holiday in Asia as it is in North America so it doesn’t feel the same. Not to… Read More »

A sushi restaurant that’s new to me? I know, I’m just as surprised as you are. Hitoe sushi was a restaurant that Grayson introduced to me and it has been a favorite of ours ever since.

Pocha Korea

In between the border between Burquitlam and Coquitlam lies Pocha Korea. If you don’t look closely you’re bound to miss it because it’s nestled in  a little complex just off of Blue Mountain.

Oyama sushi (coquitlam)

The sushi cravings are so real right now that I’ve been away for two months! I have been eating Japanese food here but it’s always been teishoku style instead of sushi since the sushi here is totally not good. Well to be honest I’ve never tried it so I can’t say for sure if it’s… Read More »
