Honjin Japanese Restaurant (Yaletown) – Part 2

Another visit to Honjin Japanese Restaurant in Yaletown (address: 138 Davie Street, Vancouver, phone: 604-688-8808) and I enjoyed some more of their inventive sushi rolls. Pictured below are the Rainbow Roll (a California roll with raw seafood on top) and the Sunshine Roll (with mango and prawn tempura). This restaurant is consistently one of my coworkers’ favorites for delicious and creative sushi dishes in the downtown Yaletown area. Visit my previous review for more details.

Clubhouse Japanese Restaurant

Clubhouse Japanese Restaurant (web site, 255 West 2nd Avenue, Vancouver, phone 604-879-8998) has an eclectic set of menus with everything from the familiar sushi rolls, sashimi, and teriyaki, to more exotic rolls with ingredients such as cream cheese, and names like “Appetizer for Sumo Wrestler” and “Happy Unagi Roll”. Don’t miss the house specialty, which is okonomiyaki (pictured below) – also known as Japanese pizza - a crepe-like creation made with seafood or your choice of other tasty ingredients ($7.95). Their drinks are excellent too: on a hot day try one of their daiquiris made with fruit slush and rum ($5.25), or one of their non-alcoholic fruit slushies ($3.65).
