I had another craving for grilled fish. 🙂 Grilling fish at home is doable, but it causes smell, which neighbour wouldn’t like, and heat-oven may not work well sometime. Well, I have tried a few times and wished I had a gas-oven.

As usual, I went to Hachibei, an authentic Japanese restaurant, in a South Cambie residence area. The restaurant is really a cozy place.

After I looked at the menu, I asked the server what the today’s fish was. The choices were same as the last time. I told her that I wanted to eat grilled fish, but I ordered the exact same ones at last two visits. She was thinking a bit and suggested black cod.

Black cod is known as sable fish. The fish was marinated with Saikyo Miso and grilled. As you might have noticed, the small plates come with the Teishoku were exactly same as Today’s BBQ fish Teishoku last time.

So, my co-worker and I were riding on Whistler mountain, skipping lunch, until we were worn out. Oh, yes, we got tired before the closing time, as the snow was heavy by continuous sunny days in early April. We came down to the Creekside where we parked, and we were about to grab something to eat as supper and relax at her cabin.

Samurai Sushi is at Whistler Creek, about half a kilometer from the Creekside base. They are a small Japanese restaurant like a cafe. When we walked-in, we decided to rather eat-in than take to the cabin.

We both ordered the same one from their regular menu.

Sometimes, I feel like eating grilled fish, maybe because I used to eat it once a week or so. As I mentioned before, there weren’t so many places that you can eat grilled fish in restaurants in Vancouver for dinner.

I went to Hachibei, an authentic Japanese restaurant, in a South Cambie residence area. They serve Izakaya menu as well, but the restaurant is like Japanese-style bistro.

I ordered from their dinner menu, like the last time. Actually, I chose exact same fish, too. 🙂

BBQ Fish Teishoku
(Daily fish from their Grill, served with rice, Miso soup, and two kinds of daily special dishes; My choice was Aji, Horse Mackerel)

The small plates come with the Teishoku were exactly same as the last time, Japanese rolled omelet, Kinpira (stir fried burdock and carrot) and spinach Gomaae, and Agedashi Tofu. No complaining, just wondering if they change sometime.
