My favourite sushi place that I recommend to everyone is Mi-Ne Sushi. I have a soft spot for the downtown location because that was the first one I went to, but the Markham one also does not disappoint. I do think the dinner menu is more well made than the one time I came for lunch, and while on the pricier side, it makes for a nice treat when the sushi cravings come.
Their rice to filling ratio is one of the main reasons I think their food is so delicious.
I was on the hunt for a place to work after dinner on a Tuesday night, and found Funky Munky Cafe. I wasn’t looking for bubble tea, but imagine my surprise when I walked in to find that they offered bubble tea in addition to coffee and tea.
Independent coffee shops are popping up all over Markham, and the one with the biggest hype has to be Alchemy Coffee. Located in a strip plaza off Highway 7, it’s reputation brings customers in despite the sparse parking.
Nothing is quite as beautiful as colourful food – especially when it’s naturally so. I love trying new combinations to get inspiration for my own creations. The pictures from featuring the bowls from Kupfert & Kim have long intrigued me, and I finally had the chance to pop in during lunch.
Blaze Pizza took over the spot that used to house Johnny Rockets, and offers quickly-fired personal pizzas. Their selling point is their Build Your Own pizzas – any amount of toppings all for one price.
In the Okanagan, there is a breakfast place that everyone talks about – The Jammery. Featured on the Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here!, you can find it off Highway 97 North. Our friend took us here on our first full day in the valley, and at around 9am, it was bustling with activity and we were told to wait for about half an hour.
Café Medina is located in the heart of downtown Vancouver, nestled along a rather blank street; if not for the long lines of people waiting outside, you might miss it when you walk past. The first time we went there, we were told a party of 4 needed to wait an hour, so we walked around Marshall’s until about 45 mins past to leave a buffer. When we arrived back at the restaurant, we actually just made it in time as the hostess had already called our names a few times and was ready to strike us off the list.
