Best for Dining alone - Expert review of Guu Izakaya
The first of Vancouver chain Guu's restaurants in Toronto, Guu was a success right out of the gate. The menu of tasty small plates and the warm, welcoming staff works a charm and pretty much everyone who eats here immediately starts planning their next visit.
Authentic small plates from the likes of deep fried brie to grilled oysters to generous dollops of yakiudon and bibimbap and tasty treats like sea aurchin sashimi.
The cheese bibimbap, grilled oysters and unagi doria (BBQ eel) are particular standouts, but there are plenty of other non-seafood stars on this extensive menu.
A wee slice of Japan on Church Street, the bustling, boisterous, noisy Guu is a fairly authentic Japanese izakaya (pub) — all wooden walls and cheerful staff.
It's what makes us keep coming back here — the staff is uniformly cheerful, friendly and having fun.
Beside Ryerson University, south of the Gay Village, just a couple blocks east of Yonge Street.
If dining solo, the seats along the bar are great — with views of the frenetic action in the kitchen to keep you entertained.
Lots of 'em — if you're in Vancouver.
