That's right, I liberated my camera from here yesterday. It was so nice to have it back after so long.
After picking it up, I headed downtown. I had an interview to go to at 2, and I needed to kill a little time, so I started hunting for a patio. I stumbled across a dark dingy place just off Robson, no patio, that I just had to try. It is called Guu and I have heard rumours about it here and there (link to a review, buried in this fascinating article). the palce was packed, and I squeezed up to the bar. The menu was handed to me, a handwritten, tattered thing with the Japanese (?) first, english second. I ordered a chicken bowl.
It was a battered chicken, over rice topped with a snotty egg and served with pickled vegetables and miso soup. It was very good, but I couldn't finish it by any stretch. I am thinking I might have to go back again, just to see what the other offerings are like.
Must run, off to the catering job.
