One of my favourite spots for traditional and authentic Japanese cuisine is on West Broadway called Kinome (Kee-no-may). It is a gem found here in Vancouver, where there’s sashimi, sushi, and classic hot dishes like tamago (which is freshly made to order) and chawanmushi (also made to order). The great thing about Kinome, is that you can order Omakase – a menu set by the chef, serving their best and in season ingredients.
They make their own soba noodles and they are very tasty and have great texture to them. The menu has a variety of specials and is always changing.
The sake list isn’t extensive but offers a great and exquisite collection of sakes.
The food is locally sourced from throughout BC and the seafood is Oceanwise.
Kinome is a great place for a romantic evening, and a journey through proper Japanese fare. Be sure to make reservations in advance.
