I’m so glad the long weekend has officially started! Even though the weather has been dreadful these days, I’m really looking forward to sleeping in each morning for the next couple of days!
I personally LOVE sushi and I crave it everyday. When I heard Poke Bowls were opening up in Vancouver Downtown, I was extremely stoked. One of the few that opened up so far is “Poke Time”. It’s located right on the street of Robson. The interior was very simple. They got bar seating against the walls.

Its the last day of August and its pouring cats and dogs outside. So I’m taking some time to recapture the good stuff that happened this Summer. Summer was full of ice-cream runs. One of the many memories include Tangram Creamery that is located in the Kitsilano area. When we first stepped in, it smelled AMAZING. Their home made cookie cones were to DIE for. The whole space smelt like a big giant cookie and it was great 🙂 They sell ice creams by the pint for $10.00. They have a full list of the different flavors available.

I woke up this morning thinking it was Fall Season… Can we just rewind back to June and start Summer all over again?
This Summer, a new restaurant opened up on West 4th. Raisu, the sister chain restaurant of Suika, Rajio and Kingyo. The restaurant is located on the second floor so it is easily missed if you are just driving or walking by! The interior was very nice, lots of natural light and they also had balcony seating! I recommend booking ahead of time if you are planning to come dine here because they do get full fast. Especially if you want to sit in the balcony seatings. My friends and I sat at the middle bar section. I love how they had bottles and bottles of drinks as displayed above us.

On Sunday, we met up with a few other foodies at Ovaltine Cafe to try out their menu! They are not located on the best spot in town but they definitely offer some big delicious plates of food! Their menu prices are beyond generous and you are definitely getting your money’s worth with this place! They’ve been on the map since 1942 and was also used as a set in many movies! No renovations have been done to this place so you are really sitting in a original classic diner!

I’m on a roll this week! Busting out blogs now since I was MIA for so long 😦 There will be tons of reading for you all! If you don’t like to read, you can always check out our Youtube channel: www.youtube.com/domoiscraving.
Vij’s is a well known modern Indian cuisine restaurant and they opened up their new location on Cambie. They do not take reservations so from time to time, you may notice they have a long lineup at their front entrance. When you first enter in, they have a waiting area for you to sit in. They serve drinks and offer complimentary appetizers. The appetizers are served from time to time to each table. This is the only restaurant that I know of, that serves complimentary appies while you wait for your table. Also, they are good too!

The heat wave has officially hit Vancouver once again and hopefully this time it remains for a bit longer than just a few days. This weekend Phil and I hit up a new brunch location located in Gastown called Alibi Room. I love how their windows are wide open so the breeze flows in and tons of natural lighting enters the space. When we got there, there were only another group in front of us so the wait wasn’t too long. Just a quick thing… their waiting area smells like a Return It depot…not the most pleasant waiting area ever, just so you know. I’m pretty sure they hold quite a night life here, hence the smell of alcohol in the waiting area.

BC stat holiday is slowly approaching so I thought I’ll talk about a spa that Phil and I have ventured off to in the previous long weekend! Scandinave Spa is located in Whistler, so if you are thinking of a mini short getaway, this may be the place for you! We stayed in Whistler for two days and on our last day there, we booked for a deep tissue massage at the Scandinave Spa. Just for your reference, there is no hotel connected to this spa. Its an individually owned spa that is located approximately a 10 minute drive away from Whistler Village.
When you first get there, there’s a welcome signage at the very front. It leads you into this short trail that eventually leads to the main entrance of the spa.
