my best friend from high school was visiting me from san diego this weekend and i took her to suika japanese restaurant off west broadway to showoff the amazing japanese food our city has to offer. it was worth it because she loved everything about it!
pretty decor. japanese with a modern twist. nice ambiance and comfortable seating
hainanese chicken salad
i thought the dressing was too light especially when paired with the chicken. the chicken was skinned and didn’t have the texture and ‘hainanese’ flavor i was looking for. it wasn’t dry but it was bland and didn’t stand out.
miso soup with pork and daikon
tasty! but on the salty side. i really like daikon in my soup =)
seafood shaken salad
this is my favorite dish to order. it’s everything a seafood sashimi salad is supposed to be- fresh & refreshing!
sandee really enjoyed her noodles. she doesn’t eat beef so she gave the pieces to me. they were SUPER tender and tasty!
suika has quickly become one of my go-to places for japanese food in vancouver. i like that it’s not downtown, easy street parking, friendly service, soothing ambiance, and delicious and affordable food! i wished they had more sushi selection though..
