Went for my third and probably last Taste of Yaletown 2011 outing last night. It's the Secret Souls Walk at Garden Park (East 2nd and Templeton) and possibly some poking around the Waldorf's Halloween Carnival of the Souls tonight, so that's it for my weekend.
Although there were a few hits and misses, it was mostly an excellent experience at Hapa Izakaya last night. Here's the menu:
We were just two last night, myself an a dear friend who was going overseas for God-knows-how-long, but obviously the optimal way to experience this Taste of Yaletown offering is a team of three, or possibly four as you can pick up an additional dish that appeals the most.
Our order was:
- Appetizers: Negitoro, Tuna Carpaccio, Enoki Bacon, Bintoro.
- Entrées: Jerk Tsukune, Short Ribs, Renkon Gyoza, Ebi Mayo.
- Desserts: Matcha Brulee, Cheesecake.
If you do go this Halloween weekend, look out for Karl Lagerfeld and an eye-catching tiger woman!
