    Fruit flies in my soy sauce... Yum.

    I’m done with this restaurant for good. A couple of weeks ago I went there with my friends who were quite new to the Izakaya scene, and we were really looking forward to a great experience. I’ve been there twice in the past, both times impressed. Their food is tasty and the ambience is great, but the facility is definitely not sanitary. I found fruit flies TWICE in my soy sauce in ONE meal. That’s right – fruit flies coming straight out of the soy sauce bottle. I pretty much lost my apetite after that. Not to mention the waitresses there have no idea how to handle situations like this. There was no sincere apology at all from any of them. One looked annoyed when we asked her to get new soy sauce for us. Another one actually laughed and joked that we should buy a lottery ticket. Excuse me? I don’t find it funny at all that she’s implying we’re lucky. I’ve got plenty of fruit flies in my compost bin in my backyard. It’s nothing special. I can’t imagine all the rotting vegetables in their kitchen. The thought of it makes me sick. It seems common sense for them to give us a discount off our bill, but nope. We had to complain to the waitress to get a whopping 15% discount. I don’t mind paying a fortune for my food, but only if it’s good quality and SANITARY. If you've got a strong stomach and don't mind nasty surprises, this restaurant isn't that bad at all.

    You’ll be “hapa” to know that one of Vancouver’s original izakayas has not only been charming food critics since 2003, but has also made international “top izakaya” lists. And it’s with good reason, because all four Vancouver locations — three downtown and one in Kitsilano — promise a delicious and unforgettable combination of Japanese cuisine, mixology and after-work culture.
