Le Nakamura

I think the original concept of Le Nakamura was supposed to be Japanese/French fusion, but as it turns out, it's just a really great Japanese restaurant and sometimes they plate food in a not-so-traditional fashion.  I think the chef or owner may have been French-trained, but I can't say for sure.

Calamari...well, stir fried squid in this case.
Some sort of sushi combo...
My all-time favourite food in the least one of them (my favourites are prime rib, foie gras, and uni).  The uni from Le Nakamura was pretty fresh and the portions were pretty healthy in size.  I was quite satisfied.
The sushi here is pretty good, and had the nod of approval from a pair of 10th dan sensei from Japan. 

We managed to organize a dinner for about 40 people at Le Nakamura, and very last minute might I add.  I think it was on father's day, but somehow, the staff were able to accomodate our fairly large group.  The Canadian Iaido Association hosted the annual seminar in Vancouver that year and we called on Le Nakamura to host one of our club dinners.  Our original number was 20, then it changed to 30, then it changed to well over 40.  The staff were incredibly friendly and accomodating, and very well organized.  Our sensei from Japan were also quite pleased with the quality of the food.

Just like my background!!!

  2. Hi Budda Girl,

    Thanks for reading! If you like Uni, and if you ever find yourself in Japan, you must visit Edokko Sushi in Narita (one station away from Narita Airport). Their uni is incredible:

    I think I've seen your blog pop up on Urban Spoon as well, see you around!
