Hello readers : ) Been gone for a while because I took a trip to Vancouver the other week. It was a much needed getaway. If you follow me on twitter you probably saw the huge amounts of food pictures! LOL. I thought I should update my blog with the places too. Everything’s taken with my cell, so don’t mind the quality haha!

I chose tako (octopus) sunomono and the red hot chili roll. I think Josh got ebi sunomono with smoked salmon lover roll. I liked the bounciness in the tako. Sunomono wasn’t overwhelmed by too much vinegar. We also noticed that the ginger included was a bit sweeter than the ones that usually come with meals. Made it rather addicting to eat :P. By the way, aren’t the cups cute? LOL

Everything in the ramen is flavoured nicely. One thing I noticed about ramen back home here is that they don’t seem to season the meat. Which is weird because, chashu itself is usually seasoned, but the ones in my ramen usually aren’t. I didn’t find myself having to add anything to my ramen at Hakkaku though.
We also got a chashu burger each. It was really good right after it came out when the bun was still hot. The chashu with the hoisin sauce is actually quite salty, but because the bun is neutral, it gave the burger a good balance.
