As usual, Collin said he wanted to eat Tonkatsu! Is it his routine in certain period? Or maybe, the addiction comes back every a few months. 😀 Anyways, on the Labour Day long weekend, we went to Kingyo Izakaya on Denman Street.

Kingyo Izakaya serves Japanese tapas dishes at night as well as lunch combo, including Teishoku. It is located in the midway of Robson and Davie Street.

We ordered from their regular lunch menu.

Tea came right away, but our food didn’t come for next 40 min or so. When the next table, who ordered after us, got their food, and we realized one of their foods was what he ordered, Collin got frustrated, because he needed to leave as quickly as possible for work. And, finally the food came with the server’s apology.

Right after this, the server brought this Sashimi salad below. We appreciated but at the same time, we knew we didn’t have time to finish eating.

As you can see, I forgot to take a picture of whole food, because I got distracted by the salad that the server brought and the conversation with him for that.

Well, anyways, we enjoyed our food, and we asked the server for the salad to go.

They renewed their website so that we can see the lunch menu on site.

In the middle of June, I went hiking with my friends. As they live in downtown Vancouver, we decided to have lunch somewhere in downtown after that. They gave two choices, Mexican or Japanese. I didn’t feel like eating Mexican, so we went to a Japanese restaurant.

It was Guu Garden. They are located at the corner of Hornby and Nelson street and serve Izakaya menu, i.e., tapas, at night. At the lunch time, they serve Teishoku, combo, or Bento box, in addition to some small dishes.

We ordered from their lunch menu and today’s special.

My choice, Black Cod Combo

It was good. Nothing special, though. :p

Friend’s choice, Tuna Yukke Don

My friend, who ordered Yukke Don, had ordered it before, too. So, it must be good.

Wow, it’s October now! It was hard to get back on track. 🙂 Being busy and hot weather made me away from my home PC. So, this is back in May, during a busy time, I got a lunch to go. I called them if they still opened before ordering, because it was after 2 pm.

Hyoga Japanese Cuisine is on Kingsway, close to Joyce Street. When I arrived and asked what time the actual lunch time was, they said until 2 pm. No wonder there was no one in the restaurant, and I appreciated they took my order. Their lunch menu includes Bento box.

I ordered from their lunch menu.

Gyoza Karaage Lunch
(3 pc Gyoza, 4 pc Karaage, 3 pc California Roll, 3 pc BC Roll, Salad, Miso Soup)

Although Karaage was so tiny, the Bento box filled my stomach. Next time, I want to order Sushi more.
