I like walking around Vancouver to try out the eats.
So I asked a couple girls outside the Foundation, a vegan restaurant, where the nearest sushi place and two of them recommended the Kishu Island. In fact, they directed me there as they rode by me on their bicycles.
So I ordered the small chirashi and a small sake, which only comes in hot. Being ingenious, I requested a glass of ice into which to pour the sake, which cooled it right down without turning all the ice to water!
Chirashi is several kinds of seafood on sushi rice in a bowl. There was tako, salmon, tuna, shrimp and flounder. To season it, I took the dollop of wasabi and mixed it up with about a four teaspoon of shoyu and poured it over everything.
After chirashi, I slowly sipped on the now cold sake.
The bill came to about $12.19 after tax, and I tipped them 1.81 for a total of $14.00.
Afterwards I bused it from in front of the place to a bus stop south of there and walked up to E. 16th Ave and back down to Kishu Island to pick up a Gatorade Ice bottle I forgot there. The waitress who served me forgot me and thought I was ordering takeout until I told her I'd been in earlier and forgot my bottle.
Oh, and this is how to drink sake.
