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.

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.

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.
