Notch8 Restaurant

After looking through all the dine out menus I decided to visit Notch8 with my friend as I thought the menu was more interesting than the other menus that I looked at. Notch8 is located right inside Fairmont Vancouver Hotel’s bottom floor.

Savory Macaron

Caviar, Smoked Salmon, Scallop Mousse, Roe, Crème fraîche, Flowers, Micro Dill

Super duper adorable!! This was the cutest thing ever!
Taste wise though, I personally wasn’t a fan. It was a unique and interesting, sweet and salty combination that I think you either like or dislike. What I did like about this was that every single item on the macaron was a burst of flavourful goodness. My friend and I ended up eating the top part and the macaron part separately since we thought it would taste better that way, and it sure did!

Basho Cafe

I have been longing to visit this lovely Japanese cafe for the longest time, however it was hard to find time to go. This is due to the cafe hours, they are only opened Monday – Friday, 9:00 – 3:00 which are not convenient hours for me as I work and reside pretty far away from the cafe. I did however finally find the time to go with my friend last week though and we were pretty excited. Basho cafe is known for their matcha drinks and sweets.

Raisu

Raisu opened up a few months ago, it is the sister restaurant of suika, kingyo and rajio, all well known and popular Japanese izakayas in Vancouver. After seeing pictures of the very photogenic foods on instagram we decided to give this place a try. We called a few days ahead to try to make a reservation but were told that they couldn’t take reservations anymore because they were full. However they told us that we could walk in for the big walk in table which is half the restaurant. We thought that was quite odd but we decided to go ahead and walk in.  We were seated at the center of the restaurant at a big square communal table, but next to us was two seats reserved? that confused us because the person I talked to when I called said there couldn’t be reservations for this area……but okay whatever.

720 Sweets

720 sweets opened up around a year or so ago. I never got the chance to visit for a long time since its pretty far away from where I live, and I wasn’t up for traveling far just for ice cream. However my friend and I planed on eating at raisu (review coming soon) so we thought it was the perfect chance to visit 720 sweets for dessert. I’ve seen so many pictures from this place, and it intrigued me alot because of the dry ice that they use to make it smokey and pretty. Though alot of places at night market are using the dry ice effect now so its not as cool as it used to be.

Miracle Belgian Waffle

I heard that there was a waffle place similar to Nero Belgium Waffle Bar in Coquitlam so I went and checked it out. There are not many waffle places in Coquitlam so I was pretty excited. You get the choice of sweet or savory waffles, and you can also decide if you prefer liege waffles or brussel waffles. Liege is ‘sweet and soft’ while Brussels is ‘light and crispy’. They also carry coffee and interesting sounding frappes such as cotton candy and cinnamon toast crunch. I really wanted to try a frappe but I was already getting a sweet waffle so it would have been too much sugar at once.
