Beef Sashimi. The best in the business can be found here at Honjin Sushi. How is it the best you may ask? Simply because they slice the beef so fine, similar to the width of rolling papers. Also of note is the delicious garlic and ponzu sauce that accompanies the dish. Most beef sashimi/tataki is often cut thick, producing what resembles beef flavored Hubba Bubba. Not here mates. Some would go so far to say Honjin's version is "the desert of meats" .

Sushi Shooter. McGavin

If you ever find yourself at Honjin Sushi, this little gem is a must order. The Sushi Shooter is one of the finest pieces of tuna in Vancouver. As soon as your seated order  two each to get the ball rolling. If you have not had enough tuna after those shots, be sure to order the Roundhouse roll. Its pretty much the very same tuna, only this time  with lemon over an avocado roll.

Honjin also has the best beef sashimi in town. Patience, I will leave that report up to my Tataki expert Desmondo Gelato. He claims that even though its technically meat, Honjin's  beef sashimi could easily be served as a dessert. Stay tuned for a full once over of Honjin's appies menu. They have some real bangers. Not anthems. Honjin Sushi. Yaletown, Vancouver.

Goodbye, Karubi Tuesday.

karubiFor upwards of one week, we will be showcasing appies exclusively from Honjin's menu.

Today's feature is the Karubi. This word "Karubi", clearly Japanese for "tender and of supreme flavor". At just $4.95, every table is certainly priced in (thats poker language, meaning: committed). Im not quite sure how long they marinade the beef for. Judging from the flavor overload at first bite, its probable the marination process begins whilst the animal is still alive. Try it. You will be entertained. Are you not entertained?
