Iki Japanese Restaurant Vancouver
One of my local haunts is Iki Japanese Restaurant, just east of Macdonald on Broadway. They have a few more choices for vegetarians (important to me) than most sushi places, as the chefs are on the adventurous side with the so-called West Coast fusion style. The food is satisfying, though not necessarily profound, but certainly good enough to keep me coming back. They have a main menu, but also have current specials, some of which have proven to be delicious. My latest trip there, I had some herb gyoza. They have the Tofu Fibre bento box, comprising 7 items for 7 bucks - a swell lunch meal deal. Their 'pick-up-sticks' version of tempura yam fries with mayo on the side are a popular item, and with good reason.
bon appetit to all
Thanks for the heads up, I am in the area often but was unaware of this place. Sounds interesting and the images on their website really emphasize the 'brown rice' sushi. It made me think of this restaurant in Tokyo that was run by a Canadian chef from our east (I think Newfoundland) which had lots of brown rice dishes and I frequented many times for lunch. Though no sushi on his menu, a lot of healthy, veggie-based meals were the appeal of that, so very amusing for me to be back in Canada and seeing a Japanese chef utilize the same ingredient over here.
