Dined One Table Down from Sandra Oh at Cafe Medina

This week I dined one table down from Sandra Oh at Cafe Medina in Downtown Vancouver. Highly recommended by my culinary artist sister as the place to be, we stood in line for 40 minutes to have brunch at Cafe Medina earlier this week. Imagine my surprise when I walk in and see one of my favorite actresses! As a huge Christina Yang fan, I have to admit I was geeking out in her vicinity and sneaking glimpses from three chairs down.

To respect her privacy and space, I didn’t snap a photo or say hello. But I have to give you the breakdown on what she was wearing!

She had on a white beanie over her curly hair with half-rimmed glasses and an orange knit scarf. She wore a white, black, and grey buffalo check jacket over a v-neck sweater, black skinny pants and heeled boots. Her face was bare and she looked terrific.

Since we are both Asian-Canadian women, I have a great respect for Oh and have been incredibly moved by her performances on Grey’s Anatomy. Strong and talented, she also has a great sense of personal style as well.

If you ever find yourself in Vancouver, Canada, check out Cafe Medina on 556 Beatty Street.¬†They don’t take reservations, but let me tell you — it’s worth the wait.

  1. I absolutely adore this actress. She is so unique and her stoic expressions are such fun to watch in Grey's. Love you saw her, gave her space but then reported back here on the blog!

  2. Isn\’t she fabulous? I think the fact that there\’s a Seattle and Canadian connection makes it all the better. Christina Yang is definitely my favorite character on Grey\’s! As a newbie to Seattle, do you have any favorite hangouts that you can recommend — shopping, eating, hanging out?
