Shishinori

Japanese food has been all the rage here in Vancouver and a relatively new addition to the community is Shishinori, a small cafe that serves modernized Japanese food with a bit of a healthy twist. Located not too far from Boradway City Hall Skytrain station, this little eatery boasts of modern, simple, and home-y feeling decor and atmosphere. It's to no surprise that many people call Shishinori their usual spot.

Sushi Bella

Korean run Japanese restaurants are on the rise in Vancouver and I'm happy to have visited yet another (don't forget Sushi and Roll!) one - Sushi Bella! Unlike many of the sushi restaurants here, Sushi Bella has multiple locations in Vancouver, one being the location in North Vancouver not too far from the Lonsdale Pier that my friend and I visited last month. This spot is definitely trendy and modern which I think is a reason why it is such a hit with a a wide variety of customers. Bella's Chef Kabel claims to bring his experience in Japanese, French, and Italian flavours to the menu...so I guess it was our job to experience them.

Bahn Mi Boys

A restaurant that specializes in bahn mis? Done. I'm already sold. Bahn Mi Boys is a little store found on both Yonge and Queen Street that offers a variety of not only delicious bahn mis, but Asianized tacos and interesting steamed baos (soft Chinese buns). Oh and you definitely can't miss out on their famous kimchi fries which tastes like a Korean poutine. Lots of yum :)

Cafe de l'Orangerie

Well today I'm here to introduce to you my newest favourite Japanese spot in town: Cafe de l'Organerie. Doesn't sound very Japanese but I assure you the food is - well half of it since it's fusion but who doesn't love fusion. This place is not too far from the end of the Arthur Liang Bridge's Graville street exit and in a quiet neighbourhood and sits quite nicely at the corner of a cluster of other establishments.

Spaghetei すぱげっ亭

Japanese x Italian food isn't exactly a combination you see at most restaurants but I'll be delighted to let you know that a pretty decent one exists in Vancouver. Spaghetei is a little gem in downtown that serves up Italian pasta with a Japanese twist. This dinosaur loving (you'll get what I mean when you visit) establishment is small so I recommend making reservations at least a day before.
