  1. Hello Ben and Susanne!

    I’ve been following your blog for 3 years now, ever since I stumbled upon it while I was in Canada. I’ve been reading all this time in hopes to try out some of the restaurants/bakeries when I go visit Vancouver again. As it turns out I’ll be visiting very soon! Finally! But only for a short while, so I was wondering if there are any top restaurants/bakeries you could recommend to me so I could prioritize going there. I’m a big fan of Japanese cuisine,asian and american deserts, hot pot, and would love to try one of those hong kong style cafes!

    please help me out (=
