is a Japanese restaurant at the corner of Lougheed Hwy and North Road in Coquitlam BC Canada (across from Lougheed Mall and near Denny's and Mcdonalds).
In this video, I show my trip from downtown Vancouver (Yaletown) which is the home to many tiny cute dogs (such as the three shown in the video that almost trip up their owner), past Foodness convenience store on Seymour street, Vita wine shop, Cibo restaurant, The Orpheum Theatre, Kim's Snack at HMart, Toyama Sushi, and the Hudson Bay Building, and go into the Granville Skytrain station. I hop on the Eastbound train and take the connection at Commercial Drive/Broadway on to the Millennium Line which goes out through Burnaby and Coquitlam. I get off at Lougheed Mall station and it's a short walk over to the restaurant.
I include shots of the menu and restaurant interior and then focus in on the yummy Japanese food including Miso Soup, Green Tea, Ebi Sunomono Salad, Tuna and Salmon sushi, Inari, Ikura, and Tamago sushi, Dragon Roll Sushi, and Avocado roll.
Finally I show an exterior shot of the restaurant and parking lot, and then some shots of my night-time trip back into downtown Vancouver on the Skytrain. Once back downtown, I film some of the paper lantern festival and public art displayed on Granville Street (which is part of the celebration in Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics).
The music is called "Heartbeet" and was created by Geoff Peters http://www.birdsinthehouse.com and Marcus Emmanuel Barnes http://www.knobb.ca .
