I just got back from a phenomenal eating weekend in Vancouver. On top were Zakkush http://www.zakkushi.com/
(Robata, 1.95, CA a stick) and, higher end, Kingyo http://www.yelp.ca/biz/kingyo-vancouver (Uni Biminbap 9.95 CA & at table stone Kobe! $21 CA for like 15 nice pieces)
Where are the closest to this, here in the Bay? I can't think of one place like either of these places here.
