Shishinori & Dining for One

I know many people don’t enjoy dining alone because it might seem awkward or maybe there’s some stigma attached to it. For myself, it really depends on the place, but I’ve gotten to a point where I’ve become comfortable dining alone. The only downside is that when I’m alone and taking pictures, I often get people staring at me and probably also judging me haha.

Last week I was running some errands and needed some food, so I decided to go to Shishinori for some healthy eats. I love Shishinori because they include brown rice and a delicious salad with their most of their dishes. Great for people who are trying to eat healthier!

I get what I usually order, the Hawaii ahi poke bowl in spicy sauce. I decided to make it a meal by adding an iced green tea and dessert, which was matcha pudding that day. This also comes in shoyo or wasabi, but I’ve never tried those options before. This dish is good, not very spicy though, but for $12 I found the portion to be a bit small. The total for this meal was around $15 ($12 + $3 to make it a meal).

I sat outside and enjoyed the bustling streets of Cambie as people watched me take pictures of my food.

What are your thoughts/opinions on dining alone? Do you do it?

May Lately

Now that I’m on my summer break, it’s nice not having to stress over school. This week I’ve been really sick, so I haven’t done much except for visits to the hospital, going to my internship and working out with my personal trainer.

Here are some pictures from last weekend + Monday:

On Sunday, after visiting Eat! Vancouver, my dad wanted to go to Steveston, so we enjoyed the lovely sunny evening there…
