Tokyo Thyme

You know one of those days that you just have that crazy cravings for natto? Or maybe not... Well, for me, it happened a couple months ago and I started searching online for where I can find some natto sushi. I actually had this kind of natto roll in mind, but it's not like I have much choices, so any natto roll would have to do! Luckily I found Tokyo Thyme in Kerrisdale that offers natto rolls :) I went in the afternoon time around 3 or 4? I can't remember anymore exactly, but they have a break in between lunch and dinner. When I went in they told me they were closed, so I actually went back to my car and waited for it to open again :P

I got two kinds of natto rolls, the Natto special and the regular natto roll. Just a note that there's green onions in the natto rolls, I didn't know until I ate them. I also ordered two tamago nigiri, DX Yam Yam roll and 6pc Futomaki. I ordered take out, the staff was very friendly and the food quality was good, I did enjoy it. They have quite a few vegetarian options on the menu too, so I know I would come back again to try out their other vegetarian items :)

Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company

Lunch with a few old coworkers in Kitsilano a while back. It was a pretty nice day so we walked all the way from Broadway to W1st Ave. They are always so thoughtful when I'm joining for lunch, they would always look up where is veggie friendly for me :) 


It was pretty busy when we got there, maybe sometime before 1. We didn't wait too long, but by the time we ordered and waited for the food, the restaurant pretty much emptied up. 

Playing area for kids :)

There are 4 kinds of veggie pizza on the menu, with 4 of us, we decided just to get all 4 :) It worked out great.

We were all pretty full after. Three guys and one girl, and I'm pretty sure I ate as much as the guys :P I'm trying to remember which one was my favourite but I think I enjoyed all of them, even though some were definitely more flavourful than others. I did remember the one with artichokes slightly more though, it's just because i like artichokes, hehe. I will for sure go back again in the future :)

Japadog (on Robson)

Another short but long overdue post from months ago. I guess Japadog should be something most Vancouverites know about. I have tried it since it was just stand, then they opened store up on Robson Street, and now they're in nyc too. 


I think I got the Terimayo this time with veggie dog. Sorry the upper right one is friend's and it's not a veggie dog but he got the combo with flavoured fries and a pop. I do like the fries and the concept of Japadog but I just wish the veggie dog could be more tasty :P  It's too bad that it's not the best veggie dog I've had. Next time if I go for a Japadog again, I will probably try the sweet one instead :)

Sophie's Cosmic Cafe

Met up with a friend for lunch in Kitsilano, it was nice enough to walk around and find a place to eat. I don't think my friend knew about the place, we walked to 4th Ave and just happened to pass by Sophie's randomly so we thought we would go in for a try.

Its a very cool little place. As soon as I walked in I was distracted by all the random stuff on the walls, shelves... well, everywhere really...

There was a lot on the menu to pick from, but decided to just get the Veggie Sandwich. It came with fruit and salad, nothing fancy but everything was fresh. Pretty good portion too. 

I would say it's a cool place to check out the decors and I wouldn't mind coming back to try out their other stuff in the future :)
