Kingyo Izakaya

Location: 871 Denman Street, Vancouver, BC

Meal:  Deep fried calamari, deep fried chicken karagae, and New generation ginger ale.

Service:  Table service, it was later in the evening so it wasn't super loud like most Izakayas. No water refills though. 

Atmosphere: It's really nice inside, a mix of tables and bars seating.4

Bottom line: I was craving crispy meats so I knew that Japanese cuisine can satisfy my cravings. I haven't been to Kingyo but I've been to Suika (owned by the same group). I have to say, both dishes were really good. The new generation ginger ale reminded me of a virgin mojito but ginger. I'd definitely come back to try their pressed sushi next time.

Out the door price: Under $30 with tip

Repeat: Yes

Final Rating: 4/5
