Canada’s immigrant population is heavily Asian. It’s odd being from Southern California and having the working class not be Hispanic. It does have one drawback. There aren’t any taco trucks, but there are plenty of awesome Asian joints. Plenty of other delicious things can be eaten as well.
The izakaya scene in Vancouver is awesome. The next series of pictures are from Hapa Izakaya. I don’t even remember what we ordered, so just use your imagination when you see the pictures.
Do you know what time it is? Sake Time!
How can we really call the izakaya scene a scene unless we stopped into more spots. This next spot was called Gyoza King.
The place lived up to its name. These gyoza were stately and royal.
Of course one of the Koreans had to order kimchi ramen.
Not into the Asian food? There’s still plenty of other things to snack on in the city, with drinks of course.
This is poutine, one of Canada’s national dishes. It consists of french fries covered with beef gravy and cheese curds. It’s serious business in Canada. I personally don’t think much of it, but I would definitely give it another go as there are all different styles of this dish.
This was the dinner I woke up on the table for at The Keg Steakhouse & Bar. The steak and seafood were cooked perfectly.
Don’t forget the drinks. Shot! Shot! Shot! Shot!
You might not be able to tell, but I am grimacing. Why?
See that stuff floating on top? That is hot sauce…in 151. So it burns going in and coming out.
Last but certainly not least was Japadog! It combines the need for Los Angeles ghetto dogs with Asian flavor. It’s just too bad these guys aren’t open when the bars and clubs let out. They would make a killing.
So who else wants to hit up Vancouver for a food marathon?
