Guu - Izakaya

If you live in the GTA, you have probably heard so many people talking about Guu and how great it is. I have never been to the Toronto location, but my first experience of Guu was when I was in Vancouver - it was delicious! So last friday, for the first time, I was able to visit the 2nd location at Bloor and Bathurst that just recently opened. For those of you who don't know, Guu Izakaya is Japanese style tapas. The great thing about this place is that you get to try a lot of yummy Japanese food -- and it's not the typical Japanese food like sushi and teriyaki lol Yes finally a place that serves stuff like okonomiyaki, korokke, takoyaki, karaage...the list goes on. Unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me so you'll have to do with my camera phone :P Takoyaki and some prawn

Saba, Carbonara soba and edamame

Okonomiyaki..mmm oishikatta desu^^

We were a group of 9 people and arrived at 630 on a Friday, we waited 1 hour before getting seated. I'd say this location was heck of a lot bigger than the Vancouver location - it was still very loud and noisy though ..I didn't mind that :) Do you like my new glasses? check out how small my eyes are! ahhaha jk! These are my friend's friend's pair of glasses... we were all very humoured by how big they were so I decided to rock them and take a picture for y'all :D

As I was eating my breakfast, I heard on the news that Japan was hit yet again with another earthquake this morning :( When will it end... Thank you to those who sent me supportive words of encouragement for my family in Japan, it means a lot to me!!!! Thank you to those who have sent your prayers and have donated to various organizations to help the people that are in need.
