After drinking and eating ourselves silly at Guu, we set over to Kakurenbou to hide out for a while! Kakurenbou, which means "hide and go seek" in Japanese, is the newest izakaya to hit Vancouver. Unfortunately we were too late, too full and too drunk to eat anything. However since we know the boys there, we were happily fed more yummy cocktails and lovely snacks until the wee hours of the night. The interior is beautifully done with old artifacts brought over from Japan. It feels cozy and dark and intimate inside. My brother had a huge meal there a few days ago and they tried almost everything on the menu, but the highlight was the sakura-niku (raw horse meat) served carpaccio style. I usually only eat raw horse in Japan but for this I will definitely make an exception! I only have a few days left in Vancity but I hope I make it back to sample their menu.
