Bistro Sakana SushiShiro Miso Toro Aburi – Fresh toro marinated in white miso and junmai ginjo sake, layered with rice, flame seared, and topped with chili flakes and key lime slivers at Bistro Sakana. (One of my favourite pressed sushi in Vancouver along with the Aburi Salmon Oshi Sushi and Aburi Saba Oshi Sushi at Minami.)

Follow Me Foodie to the 10th Annual Taste of Yaletown!

This year marks the 10th Annual Taste of Yaletown!

From October 16-30th selective Yaletown restaurants will be offering $25, $35 or $45 price fixe menus.

While it’s a good time to explore a new restaurant you’ve been wanting to try in the area, it’s also an opportunity for the restaurant to try out something new. Some restaurants will be serving special features exclusive to the event and others will be serving their regular dishes, but at a discount with the Taste of Yaletown menu.

A portion of the profits raised from Taste of Yaletown is donated to The Greater Vancouver Food Bank which they have helped raised over $100 000 for since starting the event.
