Stepping inside, I could see not much had visibly changed since my last visit. Widely spaced at the main entrance way, brightly lit near the front where the cashier station was set up, along with the sushi bar counter. There were a few groups of customers already seated and eating, lined up towards the far end of the floor near the windows looking out towards False Creek.
Every time I’ve eaten here, it seemed there were some regulars at the sushi bar conversing casually with the main man behind the counter, and it was the same on this night as well. That’s always a good sign for me to see at a sushi bar. Often I’ll be one of them and try to learn more about their restaurant and what’s fresh, but on this evening dining alone, I was seated in one of the partitioned booths. A small serving of edamae (baby soybeans) was brought to me right after receiving the menu, along with some hot barley tea.
