too bad about the rice.

melissa tseu

i'm glad you made it to vancouver. i read your blog on a daily basis and i love it. it'll be interesting to understand your reflections on the 'grittiness" you encountered in vancouver-after all, we locals are used to it but it seems to feature on tourists' accounts of our city. i believe vancouver's edginess is harmless at the most. :) i myself think vancouver suffers from a lack of character but that's my opinion. as always, i looks forward to reading your additions to mmm-yoso.


Hi Kat - I know; otherwise it would be an even more amazing meal.

Hi Melissa - Thanks so much for reading our little blog. That statement was directed at the area around Gastown. Most cities have the area that is basically in "transition", it's older, there's a mix of street people, tourists, shops, pahhandlers, etc. It looks a bit edgy. I believe I mentioned that Vancouver is a bit less so than the Pioneer Square area in Seattle. I felt very safe in Vancouver; more so than in most cities in the US. Coming from a tourist, I think that Vancouver has character....we really enjoyed the attitudes.


Never heard of a place that does aburi sushi exclusively. Most sushi places only have a few items on their menu done that way. Too bad about the rice. Good shari is often overlooked in the West.


That rice really brought the whole meal down Junichi.
