Last night I had the opportunity to try out Suika Izakaya thanks to VanEats, which has been on my list of restaurants to try for the longest time…kind of strange considering we live 5 minutes away from it! The experience, from entering the restaurant to paying the bill, was incredible. I loved the room, the service was friendly and welcoming, and the food was mouth-watering. When you walk into the restaurant, everyone from the kitchen greets you. It really makes you feel special.
With an inconspicuous entrance, Suika is located right near Broadway and Granville. You are immediately welcomed by their staff when you enter.
The coolest design feature had to be their saki-bottle chandelier, which I posted a picture of on my instagram.As part of the $35 pass, you get that massive pitcher of mojitos. We chose pomegranate and immediately made plans to come back on a hot summer day to sit on the patio and try another flavour. They were amazing…as you can see below.
We then ventured off of the set menu, and tried the tuna with avocado. The tuna was so fresh and delicious.This was one of the best dishes of the night – tuna sashimi with avocado, seaweed sauce and soy sauce. A great way to end an incredible meal.
Until May 12th, you can get the following menu for only $35. I highly reccomend it! Also, check out the video that VanEats.ca created below:
