Japan bound!

Posted on

I literally can’t contain my excitement as I pack my two suitcases for what will be a trip full of family visits, shopping and of course eating!  I haven’t been back to Japan since 2005 but this time I’ll be going back with my mom for her family reunion!  So we’re spending a good chunk of time in various cities, mostly south of Tokyo and when I look back at my last visit what I reminisce the most is the FOOD :) So in honour of my heritage, some of the best Japanese food in Toronto can be found at Guu!  An Izakaya (traditional Japanese drinking bar that serves small plates – Japanese tapas) that first opened in Vancouver.  You won’t find sushi here but only some of city’s greatest Japanese cuisine.  And the atmosphere – prepare for a lively group of hosts and chefs.  I will be in transit over the next few days so I leave you with some of my favourite dishes until I log in on the other side of the Pacific!

Cocktail of choice - calpico sour

Kinoko bibimbap - rice, mushrooms, cheese and egg

Kimchi udon

Special for the night - smoked/grilled salmon on rice
