What is a trip to Vancouver without a stop at a good Izakaya? Shirley had a brilliant suggestion to bring our fellow lab-mates to have a group dinner at Hapa Izakaya (secretly satisfying a craving of hers). It was a great night of new food introductions (Mike K, did I get you to LOVE albacore tataki vs our staple bluefin friend?) and fun chats (smiles to Nancy, Mike W, Erin and Shirley - and our closing down of Joe Forte's by 11pm!!).
Best loved dishes of the evening:
beef wrapped asparagus
beef wrapped enoki
spicy korean stone pot rice
stone pot omu rice
and lots of Asahi beer (or oolong tea)
