not your mommas benihana

9 Mar

vancouver is known for its cultural diversity. what does this mean to me? a whole bunch of awesome food!

on the way back from the gym last night, i spotted a little asian restaurant. i checked it out online (all i could ready from the street was “garden”) and it turned out to be a trendy little place.

when you walk into a mexican restaurant and you’re the only gringo there you know you’re in for some great, authentic food. well that applied here, just sub japanase. the menu was funky, the atmosphere social, and the drinks delicious.

i had the tuna granite which was like a tuna carpaccio with melon and melon shaved ice.

and the miso black cod was out of this world good

i had a some kind of melon drink concoction with almond ice cream. i saw melon and float and i was in. i just might make a return trip friday evening and treat myself again. 🙂

loving vancouver!
