Tucked around the corner from the bustling corner of Robson and Granville is a darling Japanese restaurant that serves one of my favourite dishes in the city.  The place is Shuraku Sake Bar & Bistro, self-described as celebrating ‘traditional Japanese dining created with a contemporary flare by Master Chef Masahiro Omori’.

Master Chef? I like the sound of that!  And what is this favourite dish created by Master Chef Omori?  A Big Salad!  I know, so Elaine*, right? But this Tofu and Avocado Salad is simply delicious and I must have it every time I go. For $8.50, it is generous and oh so scrumptious.  It is served on a large round platter with tofu, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and nori flakes piled in the centre of a ring of fresh mesclun greens, avocado slices and colourful diced peppers.  Their signature sesame dressing drizzled on top.  This salad looks and tastes divine and pairs so nicely with a flight of fruit-infused sakes.

A trio of 1 ounze portions for $12 selected from the following: You’s Time Ginjo, Moonstone Asian Pear Ginjo, Eikoh Plum Wine, Nigori Ume shu –Cloudy Plum Wine, or Choya Plum Wine.  I can’t remember what flavours I tried, but they were really tasty!

Really friendly staff and a heated patio right in the middle of the action make this a great place to go with friends or alone, like I did, and sip your sake and watch the world go by after a long day…
