This Wednesday, we went to Bistro Sakana in Yaletown for their Taste of Yaletown menu. It was, as always at Bistro Sakana, amazing.
One of the nice things about Bistro Sakana is that it’s fairly reasonably priced for consistently amazing sushi. There’s a lot of attention put into the food and it’s always a fun night out.
Wild sockeye salmon miso chowder
and the Platter:
We didn’t think that we’d have enough to eat – small portions and all, but the soup was filling and the food was a nice variety of flavours.
Wild sockeye jalapeno aburi (box sushi): Sockeye salmon topped with jalapeno slices
Toro red chili aburi (box sushi): albacore toro marinated in Junmai sake and miso, topped with red chili and key lime slivers
As an aside, we’ve decided we have to go back and just order Teppan roll in future.
Ginger citrus Hamachi
I’m not normally a fan of hamachi, but the citrus and ginger balanced the flavour of the fish.

I occasionally take part in online surveys. Today, the survey asked me to select the local company that is the best in _________ category.
I learned something.
I learned that there are many things in the world that do not interest me.
Things such as:
- Everything to do with cars
- Carpet cleaning
- Carpet sellers
- Carpet installers
- all things plastic surgery, denture, acupuncture, chiropractic services, massage therapy
- Home renovation
- Anything furniture related
Sadly, the survey didn’t ask me anything I am expert on, such as coffee or social media
