hey all,

Thanks for the tips. I ended up at templeton and sandai. I went to cactus club for dinner one night (food was pretty good but crowd was pretty douche-baggy) - I had a lot less time to do personal stuff and ended up doing more work related things. Hopefully I can make it back soon.

Lata gatas,

I need to kill a couple of hours before I can check into the Fairmont in Vancouver. Is there any cool shopping that I could possibly walk to? Any good restaurants, especially sushi?

try tsunami sushi! pretty sweet pick-whatever-you-like from a revolving sushi moat. it's on robson, near burrard and right above el kartel.

Go to hapa or Gyu for izakaya (both downtown). Really liked Gyoza King (overall) and Kintaro for ramen.

Tojo's one of the big names, but that's across the bridge. It's fun if you do omakase.

w 4th is gay. connies and wins ftw. everything else gets the gasface. maybe hells kitchen on a good night. stay downtown. kits aint worth nothing til the summer hits. broadway for bc suchi, nothing else.

wheres the absolute pinnacle of fresh sushi in this town? everywhere i hit is just as useless as ontario sushi. if your on the coast you have to capitalize, i cant settle for frozen tuna. wheres the real shit at?

Naw, that's just Commercial.. about as wack as Yaletown in a totally different way. Lots of cafes/hippies/flakes/punx/people with bongos, not much of interest. All the worst meals I've had in Van have been there. The summer Farmers Market is killer, but otherwise I rarely have a reason to be there.

Broadway – Saravanaa Bhavan is really good. Tojo's is supposed to be great but I've never made it down there. Fuloi was very disappointing. For sushi, Minato, Shin Ju and Tomokazu are all okay but nothing special. Habibi's used to be good but the menu was completely revamped when they reopened so I don't know..
