Hello Canada hounds,
I'll be in Vancouver in a couple of weeks for a conference and have one dinner night free. I had some really superlative meals at Tojo's in 1999 and 2002 and was planning to go back for the omakase -- but some of the posts here throw that into question. People who think Tojo's is overrated -- did you also think it was overrated in 2002, so that if I loved it then I'd still love it now? Or has it actually gone downhill between then and now?
Other options: if price is no object, it seems West is the choice -- there also seems to be a lot of sentiment for Vij's. Are these places easy to get to from UBC without a car? It's possible the people I'm with will want to stay close to home, in which case -- is there any really good stuff walkable from UBC campus? Note that conference banquet is at Sun Sui Wah, so other-than-Chinese is probably good.
