Barefoot Kitchen is a new-ish place on Davie Street near English Bay. They do Japanese yoshoku dishes. Their menu includes various types of curry rice, tonkatsu, hamburg steak, tarako pasta, chicken karaage, and some other fried goodies. Prices are very reasonable, with most dishes in the $8 range. I understand that they have a shop in Hokkaido as well.
I believe they opened within the last couple of months. I'd been meaning to try this place for while, and finally got around to it last week. The final nudge came from a Japanese exchange student I had met who recommended it. I had the Demigura Hamburg set meal, which was quite filling. The food was good, straightforward, and comforting -- definitely a good bang for the buck. I plan to go again this week to try something else.
