Eating out is a lot of people’s favorite thing to do in Vancouver and staring at your phone for 30 minutes in a doorway while you wait for a table is something you just get used to doing - and Toshi is no exception. This is partially due to their no-reservation policy and the fact that it’s only slightly larger than a walk-in-closet, but it’s mostly because the food is really good and affordable. If you do end up waiting the usual hour or more and items haven’t sold out yet, the eel oshi sushi, caramelized barbeque eggplant, and buttery black cod are incredible. Try and go as early as possible to put your name down, then have a drink up the road at El Camino’s or Sing Sing Beer Bar to pass the time.
