Dining 101 [Toronto]: RAA Uptown Japanese

Restaurant: RAA Uptown Japanese Location: 4848 Yonge Street, Toronto, ON Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi/ Tapas Menu: http://www.raajapanese.com/ Price: $10-15 It’s no wonder they offered a Teambuy Deal (something like Groupon) for this place. RAA would definitely not be on my foodie radar if it hadn’t been for my friend’s frugal purchase. The interior was impressive with a lot of detail and fixtures that … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Vancouver]: Suika

Restaurant: Suika Location: 1626 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC Cuisine: Japanese/ Izakaya/ Sushi Menu: http://www.urbanspoon.com/u/menu/1544407 Price: $10-15 I was extremely excited to try out Suika because of all the great things I’ve heard. Not to mention, with the awesome experiences I’ve had at Kingyo, I was sure this would not disappoint! The interior was simple, but what caught my attention was the beer-bottle … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Vancouver]: Shuraku Sake Bar & Bistro

Restaurant: Shuraku Sake Bar & Bistro Location: 833 Granville Street, Vancouver, BC Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi/ Tapas/ Bar Menu: http://www.shuraku.net/diningmenus.php Price: $10-15 After a long day of endless eating, I found myself at another spot for some more eating. I had devoured a lot of meat at a BBQ previously, so izakaya had the perfect portion of food to finish off my night. … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Vancouver]: Aji Taro

Restaurant: Aji Taro Location: 4940 #3 Road, Richmond, BC Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi/ All-You-Can-Eat Menu: http://www.ajitaro.com/ Price: $15-25 I guess for late-night sushi, the standards are quite low? I’d compare it to packaged cookies vs. fresh baked. You can’t expect the same quality from both! During late night Aji Taro has a Standard Late Night Menu as well as a Deluxe Late Night … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Ottawa]: Hockey Sushi

Restaurant: Hockey Sushi Location: 4055 Carling Avenue, Ottawa, ON Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi Menu: http://kanata.hockeysushi.com/menu/index.php Price: $15-25 Probably the best All-You-Can-Eat Sushi in Kanata, but definitely not the best I’ve had. I still think Sushi Kan is probably still the best I’ve had in Ottawa, but Hockey Sushi is decent although a bit overpriced for the quality. On a more … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Ottawa]: Thi Fusion

Restaurant: Thi Fusion Location: 880 Kanata Avenue, Ottawa, ON Cuisine: Thai/ Japanese Menu: http://thifusion.com/menu.html Price: $10-15 Visited Thi Fusion for the first time with co-workers during lunch time. They have a great $10 lunch deal; almost everything on the menu is $10 during lunch time! Re-visited a few times and have had both good and bad experiences with … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Ottawa]: Hino

Restaurant: Hino Location: 1013 Wellington St. West, Ottawa, ON Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi/ Fusion Menu: N/A Price: $10-25 This has definitely been my greatest find in Ottawa. That’s why I feel like this restaurant is terribly under-rated and doesn’t receive enough attention. Apparently, this restaurant has been around since 1985 (Wow! That’s a long time!). Yet every time I’ve visited this Fusion … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Ottawa]: Sushi Kan

Restaurant:Sushi Kan Location: 1900 Innes Road, Ottawa, ON Cuisine: Japanese/Sushi/All-You-Can-Eat Menu: http://www.menudb.ca/e/view?locale=ottawa&id=210&g=Sushi+Kan Price: $15-25 Although I didn’t have much hope for good sushi in Ottawa (after my horrid visit to Yummy Sushi and border-line-acceptable experience at Hockey Sushi) , I decided to give Sushi Kan a try. Browsing through Urbanspoon.com it didn’t receive a lot of rave reviews, but seemed … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Toronto]: Senbazuru Sushi Bar

Restaurant: Senbazuru Sushi Bar Location: 9665 Bayview Avenue, Richmond Hill, ON Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi Menu: http://www.senbazurusushi.com/Menu.htm Price: $10 – 15 I was super disappointed after eating at Sushi Queen Izakaya because I’ve been craving Japanese food for the longest time. Ottawa is definitely lacking some quality Japanese food, so I had to get my dose before returning back. I … Continue reading

Dining 101 [Toronto]: Sushi Queen Izakaya

Restaurant: Sushi Queen Izakaya Location: 665 Bay Street, Toronto, ON Cuisine: Japanese/ Sushi/ Tapas Menu: http://www.sushiqueenizakaya.com/menu.html Price: $10 – 15 I arrived in Toronto quite late, but around 11PM I was really craving Japanese food! I’ve been terribly deprived of sushi and izakaya ever since I arrived in Ottawa. So coming to Toronto, I was really looking forward to some good Japanese … Continue reading
