Izakaya and Beer Sampling

Restaurant: Guu_with_Garlic Six_Acres Vancouver

dre in Downtown Vancouver: My most anticipated dinner of the week, mostly because I was having it with my cousin Lewis. We decided (well, I decided) on Guu with Garlic because his brother Lemuel said that he thinks this one is better than the original Guu. We ordered Tuna Tataki, Takoyaki (octopus balls), BBQ Eel, and Yaki Udon.

As I don't normally eat this type of food and wouldn't know any better, I thought everything was pretty good. I like the crispy flakes on the tuna. The octopus balls I thought were a little bit small. The BBQ eel was a pleasant surprise. The eel sat on a bed of rice with some cheese melted in the middle, resembling a pizza. The cheese was so subtle that I actually really liked the whole dish. The noodles were all right, nothing too special about them.

We also had a pitcher of blueberry mojito, which I didn't take a picture of.

Afterwards, he drove to Gastown, where we got drinks from a place called Six Acres. They had a big menu of beers, so over the night, we tried 4 different bottles. Reminds me of the night when Lemuel and I went to the LCBO and picked 4 random beers. Must be a sibling thing.

The first one we tried was the Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Ale (Scotland) and St. Ambroise Stout (Quebec). The Innis & Gunn was much much tastier compared to the dark ale. I failed picking this pair. The St. Ambroise was too bitter for me.

The second pair we got was the Schneiderweisse (Germany) and Bear Republic Hop Rod Rye Ale (California). Again, I failed at choosing a tasty beer, and liked Lewis' choice better. I am a sucker for anything that has a "bear" in its name LOL. The Schneiderweisse was so delicious and reminded me of Hoegaarden. In fact, when we went to the Liquor Store later that weekend, we got some bottles of Schneiderweisse because it was so good. I'm going to look for it at the LCBO now. The Bear Republic beer had a weird citrus and pepper combination going, and it tasted weird.

We also got a Gorgonzola Hot Pot. Surprisingly, I also liked the cheese dip, because it tasted like creamy sauce. I didn't eat too much of it, which was fine with Lewis because once we ran out of bread, he took a spoon and ate it up like soup.
