I have longed to go to Pink sugar cafe for a while, and finally got a chance to venture into this little cafe. This cafe is known for their daily lunch set, which is Japanese styled. It is located in a small plaza across the street from Henderson place. I usually take pictures of the individual dishes but I guess I was too excited to do that this time.

Rose House

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.

My friends and I were walking around Lansdowne Centre and we were searching for a place with desserts. We came across Leisure Tea & Coffee, which is a cafe that I have heard of before. We were reluctant to go inside as the outside of the cafe was really sketchy looking, however the inside of the cafe was kind of vintage styled decorated with old picture frames and items. This cafe serves coffee, tea, bubble tea, and dessert items such as shaved ice, crepes, and waffles.

Midam Cafe

Midam Cafe is located in what is known as the Korea town. I’ve seen posts of their shaved ice and desserts on Instagram so I really wanted to try this place out. The location was hidden at the bottom corner of the plaza.The interior of this restaurant was really interesting. Most of it was very traditional Korean styled however it was decorated with basketball items, and there was even a basketball net. This is a place I frequent quite often now so this post will be of the collection of items I have tried here over the span of a few months.

White Ricecake Coated with Bean flour and Apple Sauce

10/10

This is one of the first items I got here on my first visits. This is one of the reasons why I keep on coming back, I really love this. The grilled rice cake is slightly crunchy on the outside, and soft and chewy in the middle. Apple sauce sounds like it would be odd with rice cake however, it surprisingly went very well together. It was slightly sweet and warm. The roasted soybean flour complimented the dish.

Meat & Bread

Meat & Bread is currently a very popular sandwich shop, I believe this is due to the fact that they were featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. After I watched that episode and after I heard people say that is was amazing, I really wanted to visit Meat & Bread. They currently have three locations in Vancouver. Their menu is very simple with only a few options. there is their famous porchetta, a daily special, and two other sandwiches.  The staff members were very polite and professional.

Kishimoto Japanese Kitchen & Sushi Bar

I really wanted to visit Kishimoto because it is currently one of the most popular sushi restaurants in town and I was curious to see why. My friend and I arrived at around 6:00 and there were a few tables ahead of us so it was probably a 20 minute wait. The place was hot and humid as there was no air conditioning and it didn’t help that the place was small and cramped with people.
