Shojo Izakaya

Shojo Izakaya has been on my list of places to try for a few months now! Ever since their grand opening, I’ve been eager to give this spot a try as I love izakayas, to begin with. I was able to stop by before this whole pandemic changed the norm for everyone and thought I’d […]

Photolog: Nara Chicken & Tonkatsu

There’s only one place in Edmonton that specializes in Tonkatsu – Japanese breaded, deep-fried pork cutlets: Nara Chicken & Tonkatsu. If you guessed by their name, they also serve Korean fried chicken although I came here specifically for the tonkatsu. I originally found this place through IG and it was recommended to me by several […]

I’ve been going to Menjiro Ramen pretty often lately! Their menu and ramen bowls have significantly improved over time and their prices are super affordable (starting at $10.50). While there are some other great ramen spots in the city, I head to Menjiro Ramen because they are conveniently located and their bowls are filling and […]

I recently took a mini trip to Calgary and popped into Point Sushi. The owners of Point Sushi own a few other sushi joints in YYC (i.e. Sakana & Sho Sushi Bar and Kitchen) so they presumably know their stuff! What is most exciting about Point Sushi is how they’re the first to showcase bullet […]

Kobe Japanese Bistro

Located in the Callingwood community, Kobe Japanese Bistro is situated in a quieter area. I was intrigued by the high ratings for Kobe and decided to finally give them a try. I never thought to venture out to Kobe because 1) it’s quite far for me and 2) I had associated it with KOBE Ramen […]

Date Night: Japonais Bistro

After seeing such great reviews about Japonais Bistro online, I thought I’d give it a try for date night. Being from South Edmonton, there’s quite a few options for Japanese/sushi so I don’t often venture very far for it. But after coming here… I might just be willing to drive a little further to satisfy […]
