Cafe De L’orangerie : Japanese-Style French Food in Vancouver

Cafe De L’orangerie is a friendly cafe nestled in Vancouver’s Marpole area that serves Japanese-style French food. Their menu is made up of popular Japanese dishes such as chicken karaage, spicy tuna sashimi and Japanese curry in addition to Japanese fusion dishes such as Hayashi rice and Doria. They also serve classic coffee, espresso and tea based drinks you would find in a cafe and delicious looking desserts. Cafe De L’orangerie’s menu reminds me Marulilu Cafe’s menu and I really enjoy this style of Japanese fusion cuisine.

This place has been on my list of places to try out for a while, so I already knew what I wanted before I even got to the restaurant. Find out what we ordered below!

Although I’m now working towards a field unrelated to what I majored in, I had a great time in university and met the most amazing people.

Here are 15 things learned a year after graduating university:

Life Lately: April

Happy hump day! I can’t believe it’s already May; April was a month filled with gluttony, cherry blossoms, learning and rain. As April came to an end, so did my practicum at UBC Communications and Marketing. I’ve learned so much during my practicum and I’ll definitely miss the people the most.

Here’s a glimpse of my April in photos:

One thing I’m going to miss about my practicum is being on UBC’s beautiful campus. I took this photo on the last week of my practicum.

Although I live in Vancouver, I’ve been spending more time in Richmond and discovering what Richmond has to offer. With the sunnier weather, I’ve also been trying to bike more often.

During my bike ride along Steveston Village, I had to stop for some frozen yogurt from Timothy’s Frozen Yogurt. I got my frozen yogurt with peaches and mango in it and it was delicious as always.
