Sushi Hiro

We got in from a day of driving from Kelowna. I had a craving for ramen, but we couldn’t find parking in Kensington, so we decided to head downtown. I haven’t been to Sushi Hiro in a few years so we decided to drop in. The restaurant serves traditional Japanese food – no fusion here. … Continue reading

Eating In The Okanagan – Road Trip

I went to  Kelowna last week.  The main reason was to run in the Okanagan Marathon Race Weekend, but also to rock climb, and of course eat. I wonder if fall is the best time to visit this area. We didn’t go by any wineries; I’ve done that in past visits. Kelowna is the kind … Continue reading

Pho Sac Trang

We were looking for a warm noodle soup after a chilly day on the rock.  Pho Sac Trang looked inviting. I chose the spicy lemongrass pho. The flavour was intensely spicy. It was pretty good except there were only a few bits of chicken and the heat from the chilies seemed to overwhelm the lemongrass. … Continue reading

Asian Food Restaurant

We were hungry for some sushi and we stumbled upon this little place. The name is rather generic, but they serve Japanese and Korean food. We ordered a nice variety of sushi and tempura. The veggie tempura was really light and fresh tasting.  The green beans were still crunchy with a vibrant green color. We … Continue reading

Gueng Korean Restaurant

Looking for dinner close to our motel, we decided on a Korean restaurant down the street. The place was fairly empty on a Sunday night. One of our party is Korean, so he helped with the ordering. We had bulgogi, spicy pork, seafood pancake, kimchi stew and spicy rice cake. I thought most of the … Continue reading

Dragon King Restaurant

I often tell it like it is. We stopped by here for dim sum as it looked interesting driving by. Before getting along, here is a disclaimer: I like to review restaurants fairly. In this case, my aunt knows the male owner.  I have also been warned about the tour buses. I’m also not from … Continue reading

Death by Chocolate – The Rimrock Room

We celebrated hubby’s belated birthday tonight with a visit to Death by Chocolate dessert buffet. I admit, I could only ever do this once every five years. To prepare adequately for this culinary indulgence, one must have something savory before dessert. To coat one’s stomach. I prepared by indulging in a bison hamburger before I … Continue reading

Tortilla Press

I got a tortilla press and warmer for my birthday. I can now have perfectly formed tortillas. There are a couple of differences between this and my hand rolled tortillas. These have a more even thickness, and they are thicker. I would almost call them roti.  My hand rolled ones are thinner but obviously not … Continue reading

Chocolate Zucchini Cake

I got my hands on a good sized zucchini squash. I wasn’t sure what to do with so much of it, so I decided on a chocolate cake. The recipe itself was easy to make, and the results were tasty. I did notice, there were some seeds in the cake and there were some strands … Continue reading
