Top 5 places that Jaynelle loves to go to Riley
If there’s anything we love to eat the most, it’s sushi! We’d go to every sushi place if we could, but our number one sushi place is Victoria Sushi in New Westminister; it’s very child friendly and their salmon aburi is amazing.
15 Royal Ave.East # 10, New Westminster, (604) 759-3848
La Glace Ice Cream
And did someone say ice cream? Our go to place is La Glace Ice Cream. This French style ice cream parlour serves the yummiest desserts and they are very worthy!
2785 West 16th Avenue, (604) 428-0793
Another ice cream place that we can’t get enough of! But how can you not? Crème brulee ice cream sandwich dipped in matcha green tea for only $7? Yes please!
