And If You Want Beef, Then Bring The Ruckus. Gyudonya Ain’t Nothin Ta Fuck With.

Tiger style. Gyudonya is a little spot that recently opened up on Robson St. The savings alone will have me coming back for more. It's refreshing to find places that are well under 10$ for a whole meal of food. Their bowls range from 5-7$ max. The Short Rib Bowl that I took down certainly brought the ruckus. Bring the motha fuckin ruckus. This place is packed with people everytime I have rolled by, so that must account for something. Much like the Wu, they're on the swarm.

Domo Arigato, Tuna Bintoro.

This place makes me feel like Ralph Macchio, specifically when he filmed Part 2 of the Karate kid. Much like the small village of Okinawa, at Hapa there is a plethora of beautiful asian women walking around, always carrying things. I often long to be like Daniel San. Perhaps one day I too will find love in the tiny village. The Bintoro tuna, the Ishi- Yaki rice bowl, and a Japanese Pizza are featured in this episode. Stay tuned, as there is no shortage of fine dishes at this wonderful establishment.

Note: Regrettably, they actually made a part 3 of the Karate Kid Saga. Never ever watch that film.

Im Going Back To Bali. Bali. Bali.

There is a place called Azia right by the movie theatre. They have a wide variety of  food from all over Azia. Wait, Asia? No. Azia. Right. Very clever. The dish they call the Nasi Goreng comes with a fried egg on top. I recall eating this very meal daily whilst on my travels in Indonesia so many moons ago. We also tried the Szechuan Ribs, which were quite nice. On the special menu was a Tuna Sashimi Trio.  3 types of tuna, 3 sauces,  2 dudes. Also worth ordering. Next time I will check to see if they serve Indonesia's most recognizable product,  and finest Pilsner: Bintang. They must, their menu is huge. I could eat here for weeks and still not try everything. Impressive. I am impressed, but to be honest I would rather go back to Bali.

Azia. Vancouver, BC.
