Van Mag Restaurant Awards: Best of Neighbourhoods 2016

Van Mag Restaurant Awards: Best of Neighbourhoods 2016»

It’s easy to see why judges named this Denman Street hotspot the best in the West (End). In a neighbourhood known for its lively izakaya scene, Kingyo takes the Japanese gastropub concept to new heights. Low lighting and a perpetually packed communal table keep things cozy, and the fusion-style menu has a little something for everyone. Szechuan-style tan-tan noodles are a crowd favourite, as is the crispy chicken karaage. Seafood fans will love the assorted Omakase (chef’s choice) sashimi. Tip: order a 16-piece bento box special if you’re looking to try a little bit of everything.

This West End landmark has a trendy, clubby atmosphere with inviting lighting, a wood-suffused décor and bumping dance music. That doesn’t mean the folks at Kingyo don’t take their food and drink seriously. Be sure to check out their signature tantan ramen dish and pair it with a tall, cool glass of Sapporo. Many consider this the best izakaya in town.
