Uma sushi is a neighbourhood restaurant tucked away on W 8th and Cambie. Famous for their sushi donuts that started at Richmond night market.
We started with Uma’s salmon on fire sushi donut – aburi salmon, avocado, crabmeat, masago and furikake. There is a layer of salmon in between the rice. It was fresh, simple and had hint of smokiness. The attention to detail and execution was outstanding. I could probably eat 2 of these to myself. They are quite small.
The sashimi donburi was again, simple but fresh and tasty. I would say this is an appetizer sized dish. The dinner donburi may be bigger.
All in all, I would definitely go again.
On South Granville bustling corridor sits Rise Eatery. I am so glad I was introduced to this restaurant. The decor is modern and bright and clean and the service is friendly and knowledgable. The menu is creative and executed very well.
I have a few recommendations, their menu will change depending on the seasonal produce. Continue reading “Rise Eatery Review”

Soft Peaks Ice Cream has launched their new milkshake menu. Six new recipes Original, Chocolate, Caramel Latte, Vanilla, Coffee, and Matcha have been carefully crafted to honour the distinctive fresh flavour Soft Peaks has become known for. Their organic milk soft serve will provide the foundation for the delicious new summer treat, along with a variety of other premium and organic ingredients. The different milkshake flavours will be offered on a monthly rotation, with the exception of the Original, which will be available year-round. Chocolate will be the first monthly special, made with Avalon Organic chocolate milk.
Serving milkshakes has always been a goal for owners and brothers Dan & Ken Kim, and they now feel that they’ve perfected their recipe. Soft Peaks’ signature soft serve, which is made fresh from scratch daily, remains a predominant flavour. Organic Avalon Dairy milk is then churned in for the perfect consistency. Other ingredients, like BC honey that sweetens the Original, or freshly pulled espresso that adds buzz to the Caramel Latte, were carefully selected for the perfect flavour balance. The milkshakes will be served in a 14oz size and will cost $5.90-$6.60.
