Collin came from the work and he wanted to eat anything but we can eat right away. It means he wanted to go out! 😀 As he hadn’t been to this restaurant, we decided to go. I had to take care of something for work on that day, so we left home a bit late and it was right on dinner time when we arrived. All tables were taken, and the server said it would be 15-20 min or so for a table available. We walked around and went back, and the restaurant was quieter.

The place is Hyoga Japanese Cuisine. It is a Japanese restaurant on Kingsway, close to Joyce Street. They serve Sushi and Japanese tapas like Izakaya dishes.

We ordered from their regular and special menu.

I wanted to eat this, and he told me to go for it. I liked this Donburi. The combination of Tuna belly and the vinaigrette was good.

Dynamite Roll and California Roll

These were his choice. At the end, there didn’t seem enough for him, so I told him to order one more roll.

He is a prawn monster! He loves prawns.

Nasu Dengaku

Nasu Dengaku is Miso grazed eggplants. Some people may find it too sweet, and some people may find it too rich, but I like them.

He seemed to enjoy their food, so we will come back again.

After the busy work storm was left, there was a quiet weekday. I was texting with my friend after work, and we ended up going for dinner. It was Friday and I had been busy, so she suggested somewhere close to both of us.

She had an idea, which was Hyoga Japanese Cuisine, on Kingsway, close to Joyce Street. They serve Sushi, tapas, as well as some of combo menu. The restaurant is really small, and it doesn’t have noisy Izakaya atmosphere, but it is casual and comfortable to eat there. There are lunch dishes on their menu, so I asked we can order. The server said you can order but pricing will be added $1.50.

We ordered from their regular and special menu.

The creamy Yuzu sauce was interesting, and my friend really liked the sauce.

We both enjoyed fried Aji. I generally like cream corn croquette, but I don’t know if they actually made by hand. (Sorry…) I preferred one from Fujiya.

Pork Okonomiyaki

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese savory pancake. This one was quite soft than I usually make at home.

They serve a lot of Sushi, so I might want to order some next time.

As I wanted to eat a healthy dish, I made Daikon & Konnyaku Miso Dengaku one day.

Daikon is a white Asian radish. If you want to know more about it, read from here. Konnyaku is sold as Yam cake at stores. If you want to know more about it, read from here. Miso Dengaku is grilled Miso. This dish is good with rice.
The recipe is from the Cookpad site, and I cooked only Daikon and Konnyaku.

Cpicon 大根・豆腐・こんにゃくのみそ田楽 by アンanne (Japanese)

Before starting, I read an article that I should make preparations for Konnyaku.

[Preparations]

  1. Put Konnyaku in a pan, sprinkle salt on Konnyaku and massage it. (You call it “brining”?) Water and smell will come out.
  2. Boil 1 to 2 min in the hot water.

[Ingredients (for 2 serves)]

– Daikon 8cm
– Half cake of Tofu
– Half cake of Konnyaku
Dashi powder pinch

Miso Dengaku:
– Miso 20 g
– Sugar 10 g
– Sake 1 teaspoon
Mirin 1 teaspoon

[Recipe]

  1. Slice Daikon in 2cm thick, peel them, and boil for 10 min with pinch of Dashi powder. (I sliced thicker and boiled with rice-rinsed water first, so that Daikon will be clearly white and sweetness will penetrate. And I boiled again with clear water.)
  2. Slice prepared Konnyaku in 5mm thick, put them into the same boiled pot as Daikon.
  3. Put all ingredients for Miso Dengaku into a pot, stir on low heat until it becomes brown-black color.
  4. Serve Daikon and Konnyaku with Miso Dengaku.

The recipe provider says “whichever red or white Miso is fine.”
