Masayoshi Vancouver | Omakase

Masayoshi Vancouver | Omakase

Masayoshi Vancouver Noms

Masayoshi on Fraser Street is ranked #48 in a list of Canada’s Best 100 Restaurants for 2018. This chef-owned Japanese restaurant is by reservation only and offers an Omakase-only menu. The Chef, Masayoshi Baba comes from Tojo’s and creates all omakase dishes prepared with no MSG, real wasabi, and organic ingredients.

The cozy restaurant seats 20. It is an adult only. It is not baby-friendly. If you are still hungry at the end of your meal, it is not possible to order by pieces (Okonomi) from a daily fresh sheet.

Omakase Menu Prices

  • Nigiri Omakase $100 – 14 PIECES, MISO SOUP, DESSERT
  • Nigiri Omakase $130 – 16 PIECES, APPETIZER, MISO SOUP, DESSERT
  • There are two seatings each evening at 6pm and 8pm.

What We Ate

The multi-course menu changes based on seasonal ingredients – including hot and cold dishes and finishes with rice.

  • Dungeness crab. Turnip, melon
  • Albacore tataki
  • Black cod. Marinated Soy vinegar
  • Wild yellowtail
  • Baby snapper
  • Kohada
  • Mirugai geoduck
  • Bluefin tuna
  • Chi-toro
  • Pine nut soup with garden eel. Lime juice. Bone-in
  • Ajima
  • Isaki grunt
  • Baby hamachi
  • Bonito with ginger on top – very smoky flavour profile
  • King crab
  • Hirame
  • Scallops from Hokkaido
  • Uni
  • Tamago – soup soaked. V eggy savoury
  • Anago eel
  • Panna cotta matcha sauce

Overall our experience was delightful. The fish was fresh and I especially enjoyed the smokey bonito nigiri. The price at $130 per person was a little steep considering a one-star Michelin restaurant in San Francisco is only slightly more. This would be considered higher-end prices for Vancouver.

It would have also been great if they gave you the option to order by pieces (Okonomi) from a daily fresh sheet at the end of the meal if you are still hungry or fancied a repeat of any particular fish.

How to make the best frisee salad you’ve ever had. It has the perfect combination of crunch and sweetness.

Why buy pre-washed Frisee Salad when you can make your own with a mix of shredded broccoli, cabbage, Brussel sprouts, baby kale, chicory, and frisee. Frisee has a slightly bitter taste and crisp, curly leaves. It pairs perfectly with a tangy vinaigrette for an easy side dish.

To top, I also used a combination of freeze-dried cranberries and dried cranberries, toasted pumpkin seeds and pomegranate seeds. It adds an extra layer of tart and sweetness to brighten the salad! We like using these ones from Patience Fruit & Co.

Baroness Bubble Tea Vancouver 小黑糖 – Brown Sugar Bubble Tea

Baroness Bubble Tea  Vancouver 小黑糖

Baroness Bubble Tea 小黑糖 from Taipei specializing in brown sugar bubble tea has finally opened in Vancouver (near UBC at MacDonald and Trafalgar). It is their first location outside of Asia. The other location includes Hong Kong, and soon to open Vietnam and Malaysia.

During their soft opening, all drinks are 20% off.

I love that they have oat milk options and they also use Earth’s Own Oat Milk Barista Edition. We love this creamy milk alternative so much that we’ve used it for our own Hojicha Oat Milk Ice Cream Recipe too!

The bubble tea itself is cozy and seats 10 people at most.

Thai Milk Style with Oat Milk: We loved this richly flavoured Thai Milk Tea at 30% sweetness and regular ice. The brown sugar pearls are one of the best in Vancouver with a really good chewy mouthfeel.

Wintermelon Condensed Lemon Brown Sugar with Aiyu Jelly: At first sip I thought this was really sour. So remember to stir/shaken your bubble tea thoroughly. The flavour again was spot-on and very tasty.

They also have other delicious blends like Uji Matcha Latte and Purple Yam. Most of all, I love that they use milk alternatives like Oat Milk for people who are lactose intolerant or simply want to limit dairy intake!

Their menu offers a lot of customization and toppings!

I can’t wait until next time I am in the area!

Easy Salmon Patties Recipe

Easy Salmon Patties Recipe

This best-ever salmon patty easy recipe instantly upgrades your canned salmon for a healthy meal packed with Omega 3 and an excellent source of calcium. Kids love this and as a Millennial Mom, I love this quick dinner favourite that comes together in just 5 minutes!

Would it be weird if I told you I LOVE eating the tender bones in each can of wild sockeye salmon? Traditionally, fresh-packed whole fillets, including skin and tender bones which provide you with an excellent source of calcium and omega-3 fatty acids.

Canned salmon is an easy way to protein to your meals. If I’m in a pinch, I would bring a can to work and add it to my green salad. Or if I’m sick, I would add some salmon to my congee. Because it is easy.

I always buy Wild sockeye salmon caught in Alaska and is MSC certified sustainable.

Nutritional Value of Canned Wild Sockeye Salmon

  • 12g of protein per 55g serving
  • Natural source of Omega 3 polyunsaturates
  • Low in saturated fat
  • Free of trans fat
  • Good source of calcium

Quick 5 Minute Dinner Solution: BEST WILD SALMON PATTY RECIPE PATTIES NOMSS.COM CANADA #FOODBLOG #salmonrecipes #easydinner #seafoodrecipes #kidfriendlyrecipes #5minuterecipesdinner #instanomss

Can I use canned tuna instead of salmon?

I would not recommend using tuna as a replacement. Tuna has a strong unique flavour that just doesn’t quite gel with the other ingredients in this recipe. I like the fattiness that salmon gives. The tuna is much leaner and would create a dry patty.

If you have leftover fresh cooked salmon, this recipe is a great way to use up leftovers. Sometimes, it’s worth the extra 10 minutes to roast salmon just for this recipe!

This recipe also goes great with tartar sauce and a sprinkle of dill! It is also very easy to make (especially with the Vitamix blending bowl)!

Easy Salmon Patties Recipe

  • Author: Nancy

Description

This easy recipe instantly upgrades your canned salmon for a healthy meal packed with Omega 3 and an excellent source of calcium. Kids love this and Moms love this quick dinner favourite that comes together in just 5 minutes!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 can (170g) wild sockeye salmon, drained
  • 1 shallot, finely diced
  • 1 spring green onions, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup of cilantro, rough chopped (optional but I love adding this if I have it handy)
  • 1/3 cup of panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 lemon, freshly juiced
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/4 tsp paprika powder
  • dash of salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, more if needed

 


Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, combine all the ingredients except the extra virgin olive oil together. Mix well.
  2. Divide and form into 4-6 evenly sized patties. I like to use a 1/3 cup measuring cup and pack the ingredients in it. 
  3. In a large non-stick fry pan over medium heat, heat oil.
  4. Cook patties until golden brown and crispy. Approximately 3-4 minutes per side.
  5. Drain on paper towels.
  6. Serve and enjoy immediately with a quick squeeze of of lemon juice if desired.

 


Notes

  • I like to use 1/3 cup measuring cup to form my patties and then flatten with a spatula in the fry pan.
  • I do not recommend using canned tuna instead of salmon.
  • We like to use wild caught sustainable wild sockeye salmon that is MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certified.

Mission Hill Winery Estate located heart of British Columbia’s breathtaking Okanagan Valley wine country is must for anyone visiting Kelowna for the first time. This trip was one that I will always remember and hold dear to my heart. The breathtaking scenery provides a great place for you to take refuge from the busyness of daily life and escape for while with a delicious glass (or bottle, we don’t judge) of wine. We came here on our second day of our Summerland road trip. After travelling from Vancouver and pre-drinking before at Sumac Ridge Estate Winery, we didn’t want to leave this beautiful place. We made sure we made dinner reservations at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant for dinner later that evening.

After all the wine tasting and touring I was ready to spend my $5 voucher and indulge on flights. 3 for $10 or any single for $4. If you purchase two bottles from the selected list, you can enjoy one tasting also. I really enjoyed their 06 SLC Chard and their SLC Syrah.

It is VERY IMPORTANT to keep the cheese and crackers you purchase close to you. There are many guests whom thinks it is free and communal and start reaching into your purchased food. Most are probably already intoxicated from the wine tour and wine tasting where common sense and mannerism is throw out the door.

And after all that wine drinking you can join us at the Mission Hill Terrace Restaurant to indulge in some seafood and steak.
