En Japanese Restaurant
This is a creative alternative to standard Japanese fare. Pure minimalism: White paper-covered tables, spare black lacquer chairs, and neutral walls. Your chopsticks (or knife and fork, if you prefer) lay atop molded corks on the table. There are about 30 dishes ranging from Tempura and Gyoza to spectacular Sashimi. The asparagus (or prawn) Gyoza are tender treats, and the thinly sliced and lightly blowtorched Aburi Salmon is legendary. A list of 25 wines, some Japanese beers, and a number of high-end Sakes are available.
There is an air of calmness here that is pretty unique. The food is excellent and the presentation is everything you would expect from one of the finest restaurants in BC. The only down side is the service, though friendly, is very slow.
I took my wife and son there for my wife's birthday. It had been some time since we had been there, and we also dined at their Granville street location years ago. This is contemporary Japanese cuisine, well done. Inventive dishes, a good mix between modern and traditional cuisine. As much as we like a sushi restaurant like Shiro's on Cambie, this is completely different, using a wide range of ingredients. The atmosphere is calm and quiet. Decor is nice and understated. Our food bill for two adults and an almost-teen was $60, so pretty reasonable for the quality. Service was attentive and understated and wine samples were offered to help our selection. We considered the wine mark-up reasonable for Vancouver.
Try their desserts, the green tea ice cream and green tea cheese cake are excellent!
The great restaurant En was formerly at the Granville location, but has now moved to 4422 West 10th Ave. We have gone here for years, and want it to be known that they have recently moved. All the all the great food, chefs, and ambience are still there.
I have been going to En since James Barber first recommended it years ago. Through several moves the food is still sublime. Order the tuna nori, aburi salmon, avocado salad and boneless stuffed chicken wings It is half the price of Tojos.
I love the family style atmosphere and the good customer service. The food is beautifully presented and the taste is exquisite...I don't like the chicken wings.It is obvious that the food is made of the best quality ingredients. To some it up, the chef is an artist who takes pride in his masterpeices.
The lunch menu is very reasonable and the food is DELICIOUS!!!!
Fire ravaged this Kitsilano restaurant's original structure during the late 1990s. But like the fiery Phoenix, a better taverna rose
from its ashes. A mannequin garbed in traditional Greek attire greets guests outside. Inside, it is reminiscent of a ...
