I was stoked to find that Green Leaf Sushi has opened a second location in Burnaby called Green Leaf Cafe. This restaurant has the popular aburi oshi as well as new cafe style items such as omurice and pasta. Here’s a look at my first dinner at Green Leaf Cafe.
I am so excited to share this beef pepper rice recipe with you guys now that I got my hubby’s two thumbs up! Have you had beef pepper rice from Pepper Lunch? I tried it once and was hooked! The dish is so flavourful and it’s so fun “cooking” the dish at the table. This beef pepper rice recipe is my take on the one from Pepper Lunch. It’s easy to make and the garlic soy sauce gives it an extra punch of flavour. Let me know if you’ve tried this recipe in the comments below or on Instagram #jansfoodsteps.

This stir-fry with XO sauce is one of my favourite recipes to make during weekdays. It’s quick, easy and versatile. Stir-frys usually consist of protein, veggies and a sauce. However, you can make it vegetarian or vegan with some simple substitutions!
Meeting capybaras was one of the things I had wanted to do after seeing them for the first time during our visit to the Hell Onsens in Beppu. So when I learned that there is a capybara onsen and a petting zoo where you can meet them up close at the Izu Shaboten Zoo, I had to make a side trip to this place!
