Pho Japolo: Vietnamese and Japanese Food in Burnaby

Pho Japolo is located on the Burnaby side of North Road, just off of Cameron Street. While I’ve had this place on my list for quite some time, I really didn’t plan on visiting the day that I did… it just turned out that my first choice was too busy so I wound up turning into this parking lot and saw the sign for Pho Japolo.

Kazu Japanese Restaurant: Strong Japanese Contender in North Burnaby

Kazu Japanese Restaurant is a small but busy restaurant located on the Hastings corridor in Burnaby. The interior isn’t much to look at and the walls are plastered with various special menu items but you shouldn’t let that detract you from visiting.

Fat Tuna: Some Hits and Misses

We don’t find ourselves out in Coquitlam very much so I’m not really sure how we managed to wind up at Fat Tuna other than the fact that the name sounded interesting. Fat Tuna is located in a mini mall on Brunette and Lougheed Hwy and it’s not something that you would really notice by driving by.

Sushi Itshoni: Don’t Visit for the Sushi

Sushi Itshoni is a bit of a misleading restaurant that’s located in the Hanin Village mini mall on North Road in Coquitlam. I say misleading because, by the name, you’d expect that this place would have sushi.

Ebisu (Broadway): Royale Boat Dinner

Ebisu (and their sister Kamei restaurants) has been around Vancouver for quite some time and this particular location, despite being tucked away from the bustling Broadway corridor, is still quite busy. The interior is fairly large but the tables are arranged in a cozy layout and the windows along West 8th gives you a nice view of the north shore mountain range.

Gyu-Kaku (Broadway): Japanese Yakiniku House

Gyu-Kaku has been on my radar for quite some time but we’ve only just managed to visit this place in late November. Gyu-Kaku is a chain of Japanese yakiniku houses which specializes in self-grilled meats that the diner cooks at the table. Generally, you see this much more prevalent in Korean cuisine so it’s nice to try this Japanese version.

Temaki Sushi: Chef’s Sashimi

While Temaki Sushi has been around since 2003, it really hasn’t been on my radar until just recently (I suppose the overabundance of sushi restaurants in Vancouver is partly to blame).
