Went to Pear Tree last night for the first time. I always drive by it and always near it was there but for some reason never went until yesterday.

The place itself is quite small but it's super clean looking and has a nice feel to it, definitelty a good place to be with the girl.

For Apps we ordered the following

Classic Flamed Gin and 'Cascade' Tomato Soup with Chive Whipped Cream
- It was an interesting soup but wasn't our favorite. Taste wise I would say it was a bit lacking in flavor but the soup itself was kind of trippy because there's this jellow like thing in there and the texture mixed with the soup is kind of interesting. We still enjoyed it but it wasn't mind blowing for sure.

Spot Prawn Cappuccino" Spot Prawn Foam with Dashi Custard and Local Spot Prawns
- This was absolutely tasty. The Spot Prawn Foam was very tasty and it had a decent amount of foam + prawns. Knowing we were sharing they split it into 2 for us already instead of having us pass it back and fourth to each other. A simple thoughtful/common sense gesture that unfortunately most places don't have the brains to do.

Entrees

Braised 'Peace River' Lamb Shank Served boneless with Seared Scallops and Roasted Pear Risotto
- Lamb Shank was cooked to perfection, I barely had to use any effort to cut into it as it was so tender that simply taking a fork to it the meat fell off into pieces easily. The scallops were also cooked perfectly and taste great. This was the first time I've had rissotto because it never appealed to me and although it was good I didn't care for it and it just reminded of congee a bit.

Twice Cooked 'Berkshire' Pork Belly With Spot Prawn and Tomato Cassoulet
- My gf ate this and I just took a bite so can't comment too much on it. The one bite I did have the meat was very tender and tasted pretty good but otherwise I can't comment too much.

Overall we loved our experience a lot and have already made reservations to come back in a couple weeks. We also ordered a desert and I had a glass of Wine, total came to $115 before tip.

Here's a quick overall again below

- Awesome location (Burnaby), so glad it's not in Downtown which means easy to find parking and not a super busy area in general vs Downtown, W Broadway etc
- Decor was very clean and simple, nice small place that is a great setting especially with your gf
- Staff was very friendly and the head chef who was the owner even came by personally to check on tables
- Food overall was quite delightful, very delicate, well executed, and presentation was nice
- Super small menu though there's basically 5 apps, 5 entrees, and 5 deserts. Waitress said the core of those meals usually stay the same but what's included on the side will change from season to season. So for example the lamb shank will always be the same but maybe in another season it won't be scallops but something else with it.

Highly recommended

Sushi Kazimato

There's a new sushi restaurant in Port Coquitlam called Sushi Kazimato. The owner is a Japanese sushi chef and a friend of mine. I know it's kind of hard to give an unbiased review but I'll try.

Food: Simply oustanding. Fish were fresh and the green tea is authentic and not that watered down version they call it green tea. I had the assorted sashimi and every bite was excellent. No fishy smell at all. I had salmon, sockeye salmon, squid, yellow fin tuna, Octopus, scallop, tobiko with squid ink, prawn. I also ordered the beef sashimi. It was very good. Everything on the menu is made from scratch including the miso soup whereby the brothe was cooked with kelp for a day before miso is added to give it a deeper richer taste. The spicy tuna spicy sauce took 2 days to prepare. It's not the chili sauce out of the bottle like most places.

Atmosphere: It's a small place and the service is good. The entire staff is Japanese. Keith Kazimato is the owner and he used to work at Zen sushi in \west van. The restaurant is tastefully decorated in espresso brown furniture as you hear jazz playing in the background. The atmosphere is fusion. Very nice contemporary atmosphere.

Service: They're still learning to work together smoother so be patient with the service. The food is worth the wait.

If you guys want high price quality food at a reasonable price come check it out. Tell Keith the guy behind the sushi bar that Nam sent you. He'll treat you right.

Address: #2105 2850 Shaughnessy Street Port Coquitlam, BC 604 474-0022
It's beside the old Canadian Tire which is now closed.

At Hyoga Japanese Cuisine. So far, very good. Tempura sauce is home made and very refined. The chicken karaage is subtle and not over the top like most places these days. Miso shiru is outstanding. Base is very flavourful. Had the Saba Shiso Ume roll. Nicely done. I'm not a fan of saba, but it was delicious. Gyoza is also top notch with great sauce.

Udon was also nicely done. Tuna don rice was a little too flavourful for my liking. I asked for plain rice, but I guess server didn't understand what I wanted. I should have just got bowl of rice then maguro. Waiting on okonomiyaki.

Edit: just got the okonomiyaki. Damn good, complete with dancing katsuo. And the desert. Kinako on croissant pudding. WOW!

Solid 8/10.

Okay, 9/10..........

No, it's definitely not Sushi Garden. It's what it's supposed to be. Authentic in every way. Owned by Japanese people, BTW. You pay for good quality. It is a tad bit on the expensive side, but not bad. If anything, just go for the okonomiyaki. Not Osaka style, which is my favourite, but Em Gee Juan approved nonetheless, LOL.

Do you happen to recall if they do take out? The place looks very small and busy (and I live like 5 minutes away lol). I was talking to Raid3n about it earlier and we thought it was pretty inexpensive lol.

Yes, it looked like they did the take out thing. BTW, Japanese food should never be take out, unless bento.

If you're going to take out, might as well do the Sushi Garden thing.......... 'cause you know....... KimLan soy sauce is ichiban with your sushi.........

you moved in to ma hood? i haven't heard any braps or biplanes in the area...

yes they do take out. i was there yesterday and saw people taking out. was "packed" the place is small (like 7-8 tables) and i had to wait like 10 min and was told sushi would take 30min longer b/c the kitchen was swamped.

waitress very respectful and apologetic as expected and the udon was 'clean' not over oily or greasy. i enjoyed the soup base. disappointed they didn't serve alcohol though was feelin' a beer but oh well.

Happy Cafe on Kingsway and Joyce.

3/10

Got there and was given a seat at the center, a long stretch of single seats, like a bar. Nobody brought me the tea or menu for at least 10 minutes. It's understandable cause the lady put me at the very end, blocked by a pillar. But the lady herself should have brought me tea and menu. Wasn't that busy neither.

Ordered "signature" baked pork chop rice, +$1.50 for cold drink. Drink came in a bubble tea form cup, top sealed. Ice nearly melted all the way. Drink was in between hot and warm. So I just paid an extra $1.50 for a cooled hot drink.

The spoon and fork they gave me still has white film on it, as if after washing, they left it to dry. Asked for hot tea and cleaned it myself.

The rice came and I was shocked that they were selling that for $9.75. The taste is up to par for a cafe though, but the portion was not worth $9.75. If anyone had baked pork chop rice at Golden Oscars, $11.50, they give you two - three pork chops. Here, it was literally half a pork chop, cut into five pieces.

Never going back again.

Jambo Grill

8/10.

The flavours are good. I shared a platter with a friend and it had the ribs/chicken pieces/sausage thing/fries. Overall, good.

The prime minister has been there.

Only thing is, tad more on the pricier side. Would I go again? Maybe if I felt like splurging a bit.

8/10 - Sweet Memories (Leslie Rd, Richmond)

I feel like I would regret this because I'm selfish and I like my little spots, but it's getting popular, so why not.

Sweet Memories is opened by the same owners of Memory Corner, hence the similarity in the name. Even the atmosphere and decor seems similar with the same (creepy) traditional Taiwanese dolls. From what I hear from my Taiwanese friends, it reminds them of home.

Sweet Memories is firstly a dessert place. They serve grass jelly pudding and my all-time favorite, tofu pudding (dofu-fa in canto). Iirc it was about $5.99 for their fairly large bowl (one size) of dessert.

They always serve you with cold wintermelon tea, which is delicious, instead of the normal tea that other places serve you.

As for dinner options, you have the choice of mixed vegetables (I never would have imagined raikon to taste so good), Taiwanese meat sauce on rice, or this other dish on rice. The Taiwanese meat sauce is a decently large serving, that may give you food coma when paired with tofu pudding. Plus, it's only ~ $5

Lately, I've actually been quite disappointed in Richmond's tofu desserts. I've had the traditional hk style tofu place next to Li Do, but the quality has surely deteriorated to garbage. If you have a tofu pudding craving, Sweet Memories will satisfy that. I'd recommend the red bean and barley toppings.
