LOL sorry, could you clarify? North...and...South....so everything?
I said "directly" but specifically that would be from, say, in front of Richmond Centre (Cook Rd.) to just past Yaohan (Capstan Way).
It's a touristy terminology invented to draw people to the area when they come into town as a Chinatown... which is kinda redundant since all of Richmond pretty much is........... but historically speaking, when the invasion began in the mid 1980's #3 Road was where ALL the asian immigrants flocked too to start businesses and buy up development areas... Richmond was pretty segmented back then, all the white people lived west of #3 Road, all the asian people lived on #3 Road (the whole stretch) and all the East Indian people (there used to be a way higher concentration of E.I. in Richmond than there is now) lived east of #4 Road...
I can see the appeal of writing this way. Less professional tone, more personal but I'm not particularly on point with it so I sound insane.
It's not too bad, at least it's still food related rambling except for that one bit about the new Mac. I think you have to know your audience, if it's mostly your friends reading it, you can get away with rambling a bit but outsiders just wanting to know about the food might find it boring (like RS is to Lindsay's blogs so far)

What are your thoughts on spicy tuna from your typical Japanese restaurant?
I've been taught (and it makes sense) that the tuna they use in spicy tuna can be cheaper, and less fresh than other tuna-related dishes. Basically, the spiciness can hide the flavour of a less-desirable piece of tuna. As such, I'm not interested in trying spicy tuna. I'd rather pay more and have toro sashimi instead.
Anyhow, Lindsay went to Ichiro Sushi in Steveston on Day 8, and out of House Prawn (prawn tempura, avocado, cucumber, tobiko, and mayo), Steveston (sweet shrimp, salmon, tuna, and cucumber), and Spicy Tuna (tuna and cucumber) Rolls, her favourite was the Spicy Tuna Roll.
She did enjoy Ichiro Sushi though, and I think that's the general consensus with that restaurant.

To me, spicy sauce just goes against the philosophy of Japanese cooking and sushi especially. I mean, what's the point of talking about the freshness of fish when you drown it with spicy sauce? Like the California roll, spicy sauce is something I've only really seen here in North America. Simple flavors...let the fish do the talking.
Real sushi chefs have the flavors down to a science...subtle differences in the rice texture/flavor, how much wasabi to put in, etc. You watch Jiro? Dude has like different pots of rice for different fish. Even temperature is controlled to maximize flavor.
Or you can fire hose everything with spicy sauce so that you don't taste anything but spicy sauce.
That's perfectly fine, though. I mean, who cares if something is authentic or whatever when you enjoy it, right? Hell, I know I won't find a Taco Luis in Mexico but I love that place anyways so people are totally within their right to enjoy spicy sauce. I just don't like it myself.
By the way, I've added a bit of a summary/loose rating system for restaurant posts, inspired by RS. No seriously...I saw how many posts just have a smiley in them and they basically say everything the poster wanted to say.
I realized that most posts are quite long (most are 1k+ words). I like being comprehensive but I realize some people are like TL;DR so this is for them.
I'll be updating old post with these as well. Opinions?
