Hitoe Sushi Restaurant Review – Best Sushi Combo Deal In Kitsilano

Hitoe has been our go-to sushi restaurant for the past year now. Why? Well, the restaurant has amazing sushi combo deals that are very reasonably priced. Additionally, this Japanese-run establishment, consistently provides excellent, accommodating service. Located on 4th Ave. near Bleinhem, in Kitsilano, its decor is relatively spartan and the restaurant is quite tiny with […]

Kintaro Ramen Review

Kintaro Ramen was one of the first ramen restaurants to bring Japanese noodle soup to Vancouver.  My inaugural ramen experience was years ago at Kintaro in Richmond (now closed) – I did not enjoy it. Ridiculously fatty pork slices swimming in liquid lard. Not my idea of a good time. Anyways, years have passed since […]

Suika Izakaya Review

We attempted to make a reservation at Suika on a previous occasion, but the restaurant was fully booked. Fortunately we managed to secure a table for an early seating last Saturday evening (after our long walk, lunch at Taco Shack, and dessert at Dairy Queen in Kits). Sister restaurant to the famous Kingyo on Denman, […]

Hi-Nippon Japanese Restaurant Review

We met Sophie (from and Ed for dinner at Hi-Nippon Japanese Restaurant since it was central to all of us in Kits. Located on West 4th Ave. & Vine, this sushi restaurant has quasi-private booths (the Japanese style ones where they request that you remove your shoes). The booths are perfect for couples, but […]

Ramen Sanpachi (Broadway) Review

With an abundance of “rameniacs” in this city, it’s no wonder Japanese ramen companies have made their way to Vancouver. Japanese owned and operated restaurants like Benkei Ramen, Hokkaido Ramen Santouka and Kintaro Ramen have all made their respective dents in the Vancouver ramen scene. Ramen Sanpachi on Broadway (between Balaclava & Trutch) in Kitsilano […]

I Sushi Japanese Restaurant Kitsilano Review

Gary and I are fortunate to have an abundant array of sushi restaurants within walking distance from our home. I presume that is the reason we’ve recently been on a bit of a sushi overload. As a case in point, we ordered take-out sushi last night from Hitoe, we’re going to Hi-Nippon tonight to meet […]

Benkei Ramen Kitsilano Review

Benkei Ramen has a few locations around Vancouver. This particular location in Kitsilano (W. Broadway & Trutch), is a a bright, warm and inviting restaurant. The wood-toned decor creates a comforting dining experience, especially on cold and dreary days. Nothing beats a hot bowl of soup and warm atmosphere on rainy Vancouver evenings. I ordered […]

Ajisai Sushi Bar Review

Ajisai is an exceptional sushi restaurant in Vancouver (in Kerrisdale, tucked away on West 42nd Ave) because it’s so well executed. Sure, Vancouver has tonnes of sushi restaurants around the city, but sadly, a lot of them aren’t very good. Ajisai is an authentic Japanese staffed restaurant and is different because it stays true to […]

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka Review

Hokkaido Ramen Santouka is a Japanese owned and operate chain of restaurants. The ramen restaurant company has many locations in Japan, two in Hong Kong, two in Singapore, and even seven in the U.S.A. Their only Canadian location is on Robson Street (corner of Bidwell) in the West End of Vancouver, BC. It’s always quite […]

Toshi Sushi Review

Toshi is a small Japanese restaurant on 16th, near Main Street. They don’t take reservations and the restaurant is only open from 5-10pm.  You have to stand in line before it opens to get a seat…or you’ll need to put your name on the list and prepare to wait for a while. We waited in […]
