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, when one of our close friends’ birthday is coming up, we get together, which is now regularly planned. And, it was my turn! I’m the one, who usually pick up some restaurants and let the birthday girl/boy choose one, and this time, I picked some and had my friends choose one. My friends decided the one that was in my list for a long time since I saw a post on someone’s blog and that I wanted to go. Cool! I was so excited that I can finally go.

The Refinery is located on Granville street, close to Helmcken street, and once you reach, you need to go upstairs. They serve tapas plates, which I thought was good to share with five of us.

We ordered from their regular menu. One of our friends cannot eat fish, so we didn’t order any seafood dishes.

For dessert, my girl friends made some custard pudding (creme caramel) and brought for me! It is one of my favorite dessert! Thank you, girls! So, these are NOT on their menu. 😉

And, for one person, who doesn’t like eating pudding, he ordered from their menu.

Flourless Chocolate Cake
(Chocolate ganache, raspberry compote, balsamic reduction coconut cream)

Overall, their food was great. I definitely want to go back.

Oh, by the way, did you notice that most pictures are visible? I installed Flashlight app to my iPhone and take pictures by my digital camera, using Flashlight on iPhone. 😀

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.
