Suika, Japanese Izakaya, Vancouver

Kingyo’s sister, Suika, opened a while ago and I’ve been wanting to try because of my love for izakaya food. Suika is currently #1 on the Talk of the Town list on Urbanspoon.

The restaurant has nice Japanese-styled interior.

pumpkin and mango martini. It was a little too salty (from the pumpkin juice) so the waitress kindly added some more mango juice to make it sweeter.

Torotoro cha-shu. It’s really soft but too much fat for me.

Corn Kakiage. I liked this! It reminds me of the corn chicken I ate when I was young.

Kakuni Bibimbap. My favourite item today! The rice and sauce was delicious.

I’ve heard about the matcha bulee and I was really curious about it! This is pretty innovative. Basically It’s green tea ice cream with hard caramel on top. It’s different from a normal creme bulee because the contrast in the texture is quite different. Nevertheless I enjoyed this dessert and it’s likely that I will order this again.
