Opening from 9am on weekends, Earls Ambleside Beach will tempt guests with an expansive brunch menu inclusive of new, location exclusive, menu items such as Lobster and Pancetta Pizza, Salmon Zen Bowl, and The Grilled Avocado Brunch Bowl.

Behind the bar, Beverage Director Cameron Bogue, has partnered with internationally renowned bartenders Iain Griffiths and Kelsey Ramage of Trash Tiki (London/Toronto) to reduce the environmental impact of the beverage program and its operations. Most notably is the introduction of an innovative, five flavour, shelf-stable bottled cocktail range – the first of its size and kind in Vancouver – that will be bottled in front of guests daily. In an effort to reduce unnecessary waste, Earls Ambleside Beach is eliminating disposable plastic straws from the bar entirely.

The wine menu, curated specifically for Ambleside Beach by local wine educator and Earls Sommelier, David Stansfield, emphasizes cool local wines among iconic international producers. There will also be a rotating Reserve Menu featuring a concise selection of world famous bottles with daily Reserve glasses offered from Coravin.

MAUMI SUSHI BAR VANCOUVER | RESERVATION ONLY OMAKASE MENU

MAUMI SUSHI BAR VANCOUVER | RESERVATION ONLY OMAKASE MENU

MAUMI SUSHI VANCOUVER JAPANESE OMAKASE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

Sushi Bar Maumi is a by reservation only Japanese restaurant in the West End neighbourhood of Vancouver – particularly between Bute and Davie. Menu focuses on traditional nigiri sushi. The omakase menu consists of a course of 11 pieces of sushi for $75 per person that is served with Ara miso soup made with grilled fish bone broth. If you are still hungry – it is possible to order by pieces (Okonomi) from their daily fresh sheet. There are two seatings: 6pm and 7:45pm.

 

 

This tiny restaurants has only 10 seats and you must call in person to make an reservation. It is an adult only. It is not baby friendly. In fact is does not admit children under 18 years old. Also they do not serve rolls. And they do not serve alcohol. They do not have a liquor licence.

 

There are four different homemade sauces on the fish:

  • Nikiri Shoyu (strong): bonito flakes, dried kelp, soy sauce, mirin and sake
  • Irizake: sake, umeboshi pickled plum, bonito flakes, kelp
  • Nikiri Shoyu Tsume (regular): BBQ conger head, sake, soy sauce, sugar, bonito flakes
  • Mojio: Hondawara, kelp, sea salt

 

MAUMI SUSHI VANCOUVER JAPANESE OMAKASE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

Sushi Bar Maumi is operated by Maumi Ozaki (previouslly trained at Fuji Sushi in Coquitlam) and his wife. A two person operation much similar to Sushi Hachi. When we arrived, we quietly greeted and seated behind the bar.

The humble restaurant is very quiet. In fact, the restaurant is so strict, we felt like we couldn’t even chat. Once everyone was seated, the Chef presented us with a few rules – one of which, if you can’t finish your rice, let him know so he can make you smaller portions.

 

MAUMI SUSHI VANCOUVER JAPANESE OMAKASE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

The chef studiously studies his handwritten notes in front of him and begins pulling out the fish from the refrigerators underneath the bar. Slicing and serving us nigiri pieces one by one. Whispering the names.

MAUMI SUSHI VANCOUVER JAPANESE OMAKASE NOMSS.COM FOOD BLOG

Overall our we thought Sushi Bar Maumi warranted a solid “good” but it didn’t blow our minds. Although fresh (imported from Japan few times a week), we didn’t think there was a great progression of mild to bold tasting flavours. My rice was uncharacteristically a touch too warm. The prices are steep without being orgasmic. Truly a disappointment given all the recommendations from everyone.

 

If you are looking for an authentic Japanese culinary experience perhaps venturing to Masayoshi, Testsu Sushi or even the Raw Bar at Fairmont Pacific Rim.

812 Cake & Dessert is a cake and dessert shop located in Burnaby. I love the bright white space, wainscoting panels and the fact this cake shop opens until 10 pm. Eight denotes 8 signature cakes and desserts and Twelve steps of baking process required.

The cakes are delicious, moist and airy. The blueberry cake is very flavourful with fresh blueberries. I love that it isn’t very sweet.

 

The strawberry sponge on the hand reminds me a traditional Asian birthday cake. The sweetness again was very mild but it was very pleasing. I love the fresh airy cream.

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.

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.
