"Real" sushi in vancouver- gimme!

peppermonkey | Jul 27, 2009 02:29 PM

Visiting Vancouver in 2 days! (yes I'm a procrastinator).
1)I need an omakase lunch/dinner. I want the real sushi. Let me qualify: no rolls, fresh grated wasabi, seasonal fish, mostly wild if not completely, personalized sushi portions to diner's dimensions, crazy samurai knife skills, no cold rice, no hot falling apart rice, no sake bombs, no saketini's, usually clean minimalist wooden sushi bar, place that understand rice is more important than fish but still has the best fish, and of course love.

2) Please also recommend day from Wed-Fri. I'm assumming there are a few days when the fish purveyors are not available to avoid. reservations necessary?
3) Also need to know which itamae I should be in front of?

so far I got tojo's or octopus garden
