Shiru-Bay Chopstick Cafe - First Visit

In Vancouver, we are truly blessed with Japanese tapa and Izakaya style restaurants. If you want quiet, intimate and fusion, go to Umami. If you want down home, cheap, cheerful, noisy and full of Japanese, go to Guu on Thurlow, our first Izakaya love. If you want upscale Guu, go to Hapa Izakaya.

Shiru-Bay - delicious meal tonight

Shiru-Bay Chopstick Cafe 24sep2005 - 6

Barb and I had an excellent meal at Shiru-Bay (1193 Hamilton Street, 604 408-9315) tonight. The beef carpaccio in the photo above (with truffle oil) for $10.80 was our favourite, but we loved most everything. More tomorrow!

Milan's tomatoes + Oyama Bacon + Terra Breads = Heaven

Ah harvest time! Just thought I'd mention that heavenly equation. Still time to get some of Milan's tomatoes (say at one of the last remaining farmers markets) and the bacon at Oyama (flavourful and not overly fatty!) is always available as are Terra Breads' fabulous loaves!
