My company had a meeting with 3rd party in downtown in Vancouver on a weekday, and I headed there, too. The meeting took 3 hours, and then a thing happened, my co-worker lost his phone. He was chasing the GPS signal on the other’s phone to locate his phone, but no luck. Anyways, we waited for another hour, so it was already past 2 o’clock!

My boss and I were thinking where to go for lunch. It is so difficult to find a place when one can’t take gluten and another one is allergic to shrimp. And, the time may be late for lunch. Well, we decided to go to Kingyo Izakaya, since they open til late. Kingyo Izakaya is on Denman street between Robson and Davie streets.

We ordered from their regular lunch menu. There was one more different dish, but I missed the chance to take a picture.

My choice, Chef’s Choice Grilled Daily 2 Kinds Fish Combo
(Today’s fish: Horse Mackerel and Salmon)

I was thinking to order a different one, but I ordered this again. This time, 2 kinds fish were horse mackerel (Aji) and salmon. The small plate on the left was tofu with garlic oil, but it wasn’t spicy or anything, and it was just oily, and I and some others didn’t like it. Anyways, I was too full afterwards.

When the Chinese New Year’s parade was held at Chinatown, I decided to go for a long walk. I walked from Chinatown to Gastown, on Robson street to Denman street. Before continuing towards the seawall around Stanley Park, I stopped by this restaurant for late lunch. It was almost 3 o’clock, and they were open till 3!

Kingyo Izakaya is on Denman street between Robson and Davie streets. They open lunch daily.

I ordered from their regular lunch menu.

The combo came with rice, Miso soup, pickled veggies, and a small dish, which this time was simmered vegetables, including Kabocha. Horse mackerel (Aji) was half body, and atka mackerel (Hokke) was portioned. It is rare to find atka mackerel at stores, so I was happy. Compared to mackerel (Saba) or horse mackerel, atka mackerel is more milky or fatty.

Oh that was good! I’m glad to have had this. So satisfied, physically and mentally. 🙂

On the rainy weekend in early December, Collin and I planned to go for lunch. As he had never been to this restaurant, we decided to go. First, when we tried to go upstairs from Hornby street as I did before, the door for the stairs was closed. So, we had to go back to Nelson street. There is another Japanese BBQ restaurant at the main floor, so we stopped by and asked them if they had lunch menu. The answer was no. Anyways, as he needed to work after that and we didn’t have time to grill on our own for lunch, we went to Guu Garden as planned. Stairs were accessible from the open space, not facing to the street.

We ordered from their lunch menu. Looking at my previous post for Guu Garden, I said I knew what I ordered next time. Well, I ordered the exact same one as last time. 😛

Collin’s choice, Ga-den Salad
(Prawn & Avocado Salad with Wasabi Dressing)

Wasabi in the dressing was quite strong for me, but he liked it. And, the dressing may be a bit watery so that the salad was soggy at the end.

Collin’s choice, Karaage
(Deep-fried Chicken Thigh served with Garlic Mayo)

Tonosama* Bento
(Deep-fried breaded shrimp & veggies, Grilled or Stewed fish of the day, Four kinds of Sashimi, Kobachi*, Rice and Miso soup)

*Tonosama means king. Kobachi means a small plate.

Although the menu on their site says “deep-fried breaded” shrimp and veggies, as far as I saw this picture, they aren’t breaded. Those veggies are Tempura. Don’t get me wrong. They were good. I was just a bit disappointed, because there weren’t breaded green beans, which I really liked last time.

Next time, I know what I would order. 🙂 (Am I sure?!)
