Ube Cake from Kaye Bakes

I continue my support of Filipino businesses and entrepreneurs by ordering Ube (purple yam) cake from Kaye Bakes. Kaye Bakes for Celebration Today we're celebrating three things: my mom's birthday, my youngest sister's high school graduation, and father's day. It only fits to order some cake, and I thought a cake we can't buy from Costco would be fitting. How I ordered from Kaye Bakes? I reached out on their Facebook page Tuesday to ask if they can do a Saturday delivery or if it's too late. I also asked for prices and if they can deliver. They were able to deliver on a Saturday at Richmond. I paid via Interac-E Transfer. Ube Cake Purple yam is famous in the Philippines. The colour is unique, and it's delicious! We love Ube cake in the Philippines, and I didn't think we would be able to enjoy some here in Canada.

Lunch at Seto Japanese Restaurant

Last Christmas, I gave my siblings gifts that they want to have. I never purchased anything for my parents, so yesterday, I decided to bring them to a Japanese restaurant because my mom had been raving about wanting to have Ramen and Tempura. After doing research, we were initially going to eat at Gmen Ramen Shop, but it is not open on Sundays, so we end up at Sato Japanese Restaurant. Sato is a posh, upscale Japanese restaurant that offers a lot of famous Japanese food. They have the usual sushi and sashimi, takoyaki and okonomiyaki, ramen, tempura, and so much more. Plus, the ambiance of the place is Japanese. Below is the food we ordered, and I was severely bloated after this delicious meal. They have all of my favourite Japanese food! Mom had the Lunch Box A. Teriyaki Chicken, Tempura, California Roll, Salad, Sunomono, Soup, and Rice. Lunch Box A Meanwhile, dad had Shoyu Ramen. They agreed to share the food they ordered so they could try it all.

Lunch at Sakura Sushi (McLennan, Richmond)

I love Japanese cuisine. Currently, it's my favourite cuisine. Ever since coming from the Philippines and stopping over Japan for a 2-hour layover and eating my favourite Japanese Curry, I have been searching for the best place to try it in Canada, and I end up at Sakura Sushi. Earlier today, I slipped on melted snow. I also attended a seminar which got me a little bit sad, so I need my comfort Japanese food. Sakura Sushi is a small no-frills restaurant that offers good Japanese food. When I go to Japanese restaurants, I have this list of food I must try which is Japanese Curry (if it's available), Gyoza (must-have), and Salmon/Tuna Sashimi. Upon reviewing the Sakura Sushi menu, they don't have Japanese Curry, but thankfully they have Gyoza and both Salmon and Tuna Sashimi. I was famished, so I ordered Chicken Karaage and a bowl of rice.
