My friend and I decided to visit Kerrisdale once again for afternoon tea. Rose House was the only tea house in Kerrisdale that we haven’t tried yet so of course we had to try it out! I made reservations on the phone the day before and it was quick and easy, the person who picked up was very professional. Rose house is in a very odd location it’s on a side street instead of a main street and the outside doesn’t look very nice compared to the other tea houses around. The interior however, was alright. Not the fanciest or the cutest but still elegant looking.
I really wanted to eat some authentic Japanese food and my friends and I were in Richmond one day so we decided to check gyo-o out as I have been keeping my eyes on this place for a while. Gyo-o is located in the Continental plaza a few blocks away from Aberdeen station and Aberdeen centre The restaurant was very busy and packed on a sunday during lunch time. The interior was very cute, there were wooden blocks on the walls with random Japanese writing on them. I decided to order whatever seemed popular on instagram and blog posts.
