Somehow I completely missed this place walking by Friday but today I connected.

Sleek and comfortable well run and well outfitted is the first impression.

Warm friendly Staff and an appealing menu with variations on the standard Vancouver Izakaya fare-also featuring OYSTERS!!!

First up were 3 Royal Miyagi and 3 Kushhi-delicious even for someone who was half frozen.

Next a take on Agedashi Tofu-a thicker sauce than the usual dashi broth -with bits of Tuna and grilled Mushroom-very soothing and filling.

Finally an ambrosial Miso Black Cod on a bed of greens-probably the best I've ever had.

Add all that to the Olympic hockey triumph rebroadcast and a flagon of house Sake and I was a Very Happy Diner indeed-still am-this place is doing it right normally I never go near a place in it's first week.

Ramen starts next month I didn't enquire as to details (it's in no way my fave).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
