At the corner of Granville and Robson in downtown Vancouver, you should look for a Japanese restaurant called ShuRaku. The place is stylish, the staff are friendly, and the prices are quite reasonable. (Except for the rice sides. $2.50 for a little bowl of starch?)

Leslie had the sukyaki, which I don’t really understand, but she liked it. She “even liked the tofu”. So, I guess that’s good.  I had the grilled hokke, which I’m told is a kind of mackerel. This was a special, but it was really good. Basically, they took a fish, butterfly-cut it, removed the yucky bits, and put the thing, skin side down, on a grill. I don’t know if they added anything. (Maybe some salt?) This was a strangely dry fish, but it was delicious. I didn’t even mind pulling out the meat and avoiding the bones using chopsticks.

If you like Japanese food, and you’re in the area, give it a try.
