Japanese and Peruvian is a mix that’s relatively unexplored. Not only are they separated by language and geography, but the bright acidic flavours of Peru are seemingly in conflict with the more subtle notes of Japanese cooking. How to achieve… Continue Reading →

Ramen Round-Up: The Top Four & Beyond

When I began profiling all the ramen places, I had a mental list of places that I was going to include. In the process of churning over the nuances of noodles, I realized that I wanted to stick to the… Continue Reading →

Raijin Ramen

Raijin Ramen was the last of the full-on ramen shops to open these last few months. And it opened relatively quietly. So quietly, in fact, that I never have had to wait for a table, even after 6pm. This is… Continue Reading →

Santouka Ramen

Santouka opened with a lot of anticipation, and even a few days in to their soft opening, the lines were stretching out the door. To this day, waits are around 30 minutes or more. Despite the cold weather, many still… Continue Reading →

Izakaya Notes

Did a late weeknight visit to Guu Izakaya with friends not too long ago. Just so you know: it’s still busy, even at 10:30 pm on a Monday night. I also discovered that the Cheese Bim Bim Bap isn’t as… Continue Reading →

Omakase At Yuzu
