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


  1. Omg I was planning to try this one day JUST because so many Toronto bloggers have mentioned it. Must try it now, but I don't visit downtown Toronto too often.

  2. I grew up shopping with my mom at The Bay too! It's funny because my sister doesn't like it very much. All she remembers is us kids waiting around bored while my mom shops the racks upon racks of clothes hahaha!
    Danggg I've heard so much about that Guu place. One day I got to try it out, looks so delish!
    Btw I ended up sleeping and then waking up at 5 to watch the Royal wedding. I couldn't take it anymore haha I was so dead tired! XD

  3. Oh forgot to say I lol'ed when I saw you with those glasses on! XD

  4. i've heard so much about this place but still haven't had a chance to try it out yet! and LOL with the glasses!!

  5. were those glasses prescribed?? lolol
