While Hapa Izakawa still remains on our "must do once in a while" restaurant list, it has changed over the past year, particularly the menu. Last night's squid legs dish was horrible, inedible actually. Tough, rubbery, still feel like puking on what I ate, so...More

This place is tucked away on Yew Street but is much larger that it looks from the outside. Very friendly staff and great food. It has a pub atmosphere even in the winter and the pricing is very good, especially during the happy hour.

There was more creativity in the presentation and this was not your standard fare sushi, so this will not be for everyone. The service was very friendly and accommodating. Recommended.

We had a great meal, as always: halibut croquettes, ahi and avocado dip, and mushroom rice stone bowl. All very flavourful. Such an assortment of different types of dishes. We will definitely be back to try some other dishes.

Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative
neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture
and poetry readings, its days of flower children and
buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving
their mark on the number of organic restaurants and
fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of
