Kinoya Japanese Bistro on St-Denis

Took the kids to try the Japanese tapas on St-Denis. We spent some time fiddling with an interesting Japanese soda with a marble in it - the waitress was trying to remember how to pop it open. Next I had to try the octopus balls and was not disappointed - nice smooth texture, just a bit of octopus and a lot of bonito flakes. We had some big generous sushi, some gyoza with a good dipping sauce and a big bowl of pork bone broth ramen. Oh, and some tempura. It was all good, although I'd probably study the menu a bit more closely in the future to try to keep the overall costs down. The ramen seems expensive at $12, and the 5 pieces of maki roll for $8.50 as well. But the sake was inexpensive and part of a happy hour special so there's something to be done here. A great addition to the neighbourhood and the big pink graphic design is inviting. So I think we'll come back, maybe with a concrete strategy to try to eat for less than $20 each next time. Maybe I'd skip the tempura and the ramen, focus on more unusual items or the kushiyaki brochettes.
