Dinner at Saku

Cheese Katsu from Saku in downtown Vancouver. 

Our first night in Vancouver we dined at Saku. This Japanese restaurant located on Robson St. only has seven or so tables. We had to wait about forty five minutes for our table. But they do have a small heated patio and they take your order while you wait. So by the time we were seated, our food arrived within a couple of minutes.

Saku is an authentic Japanese pork cutlet restaurant. The Cheese Katsu had caught my eye online, and looked like something worth trying. This dish is a deep fried breaded aged mozzarella with thinly sliced pork. It reminded me of mozzarella sticks but with a really crispy breading and tasty pieces of tender pork. The pork was really thin though and almost hard to notice it was there. The cheese pulls were epic from this dish, creating in a pretty heavy meal. The platter has six large pieces, so this order is just right for sharing. Along with the Cheese Katsu, it came with unlimited rice, tonjuri, and shredded cabbage. Tonjuri is a savory pork and vegetable miso soup. My boys shared my rice and Cheese Katsu.

My husband had the Curry Udon. He really liked it, but the serving size was small. He enjoyed the rich curry sauce and the silky noodles. He washed it down with a Asahi Beer. This Japanese beer is very dry and compliments the cuisine well. I'm happy we checked out Saku and I felt it was worth the wait!
