Osamu - pricey but worth it

Osamu Sushi

2764 Barnet Hwy, Coquitlam

Osamu Sushi on Urbanspoon

Food: 4
Service: 4
Price: Expensive

The one thing about being a food blogger is that people expect you to know where to eat, and what is good, so my friend often come to me for suggestion. The truth is I haven't tried that many restaurants, and when I do suggest a place, it's only because it suit my taste palate, so all I am saying is to take my suggestion with a grain of salt. Anyway, when my friends came to me for a suggestion for our Friday night dinner, I immediately picked Osamu, because I been wanting to try, and no one objected.
"Never judge a book by its cover" rings true for Osamu, because from the outside it looked like any other typical sushi restaurant.

Italy - good to know (in my opinion)

During my trip to Europe, both R and I agreed that our favourite country was Italy, even though we only visited Rome and Venice. Although I loved both cities, I think Venice has the upper hand, because it's so unique.
(I call the white tower: the leaning tower of Venice :P)

Maenam - modern Thai restaurant

Maenam

1938 W 4th Avenue, Vancouver

Maenam on Urbanspoon

Food: 3.5
Service: 3.5
Price: Fair +

For R's 2010 birthday, his friends actually got him a $50 gift certificate to Maenam, and for some reason we never thought to use it. It's a good thing there was no expiry date and I am so glad they did not close down. Maenam was not hard to find, but parking on the other hand was a little hard to come by. If you are lucky you can get free parking once you turn onto Maple street. The restaurant was a decent size with fairly dim lighting, I guess they are trying to give you that relaxed ambiance.
