Ebisu on Robson

Ebisu on Robson
827 Bute Street – Second Floor
Vancouver, BC

****4 Stars (out of a possible 4)

I confess to being a regularly evening Ebisu on Robson customer. It’s close to my home, and the evenings are busy with a great mix of local Japanese students and a pan-global clientele tempted by the sometime’s inconsistent but usually very delicious Izakaya-style food, and the well-priced drinks.

We recently discovered their lunch special and it just so happens to nearly fit our smackdown requirements. It’s in the plus/minus a dollar or two range so we are going to be liberal and include it in the mix. Why? Because I can!
