The other night, my friend held her birthday dinner at Ebisu on Robson in downtown Vancouver. There are two other locations located in the Lower Mainlad – Broadway and Richmond. The variety of food and their presentation was amazing, and they all had funky names attached to them. Unfortunately, I wasn’t feeling very well, so I didn’t have a chance to try more variations on their menu.I would like to share a few of their dishes and some pictures I took!
Because the restaurant’s interior was very dark, it was hard to get some decent pictures when the sun had set around 9:00pm!
This is the Tiger Mayo my friend ordered (and generously shared with me). The shrimp was big and juicy, and the mayo was delicious!
Due to my post H Pylori diet, I tried to order something healthy. I opted with the Original Garden Salad that came with house ginger dressing, but I deeply regret it. The veggies itself tasted boring, and I didn’t find the dressing tasty nor original.
So, I also ordered a Takoyaki- they were deliciously fried, chewy, moist, and the mayo is really flavour-ful! Ebisu must be good at whipping their mayos. Six takoyaki balls were presented in a takoyaki plate (there were specific craters in the plate to put the takoyaki in.)
We also had an “ice bath”- a giant (and I mean giant..) bowl of fresh seafood on ice. It was so cold- do you see the liquid nitrogen leaking out?
Other people ordered a variety of dishes- this is the saba inferno. A waitress came and seared the top of the saba with fire. It was a pretty cool sight!
What’s a party without shots shots shots? Some shots were 4 for $18! I only snapped 2 pictures out of the 30 I could’ve taken.
Everything (apart from the salad) was tasty, fresh, and the presentation of the food was wonderful. Sorry I couldn’t share more of my experience with you readers, I wish my appetite was better! There were other things on the dinner menu I really wanted to try, so I think I will definitely go back when I’m not sick!
