a Guuuuuu'd lunch (box)!
|Kobe beef burger bento|
On this day, I opted for the Kobe Beef Rice Burger Bento while my dining companion went for the equally-as-sound-appealing Tuna Cutlet Rice Burger Bento. Each bento box consisted of the following:
- shrimp and avocado Salad (lightly dressed in a light creamy, tangy, vinagarette dressing with a mild wasabi kick, spring greens) * i enjoyed this 'side' the most
-tempura green beans (green beans in a lightly coated tempura batter and deep fried) *could've been crispier and better accompanied with a side of mayo (doesn't come with it, I asked for it)
-miso soup (with pieces of tofu puff and seaweed) *second favourite side

We also ordered a half order of their Salmon Oshi Sushi - 3 pieces of 'box' pressed sushi (very similar to the sushi they serve at Miku - can anybody say 'yum'?). The pieces here were a tad bigger but were equally as delicious. The salmon was immaculately seared and seasoned, topped with a fine load of ponzu-sauced strands of daikon and topped with a thin wedge of lime.
Strawberry Season ($5.50) - consisted of Cassis and strawberry puree. The ratio of each constituent was perfect and it served as a real nice refresher for a mid-day beverage :)

Polite and friendly - though it may be hard to convey your food/drink requests as there is a language barrier with most of the staff here
$10 for lunch box bentos - 2 thumbs up!
This location is definitely a lot more spacious than the Thurlow and Robson locations. And as we all know, 'lunch time Guu' is a lot more different than 'dinnertime Guu' on the noise spectrum.
Yay: Great lunch specials, bigger dining space, salmon oshi sushi
Nay: Downtown - parking
