With the awesome news that Guu now serves lunch (Monday to Friday, from 11:30 a.m to 2:00 p.m.), you can satiate your need for izakaya fare and a pint of Sapporo midday — without the lineups usually reserved for dinnertime. 

With a dozen options for lunch, Guu SakaBar has several cheap eats, like shoyu ramen ($8.30 small, $9.80 large), barbecue pork don ($8.80) and an oden and kitsune udon ($7.80).

This week’s cheap eat is the maze maze udon, served cold with sliced okra, natto (fermented soybeans), shibazuke (cucumber pickles), takuan (daikon pickles), crunchy bits of deep fried dough, sour plum paste and a perfectly poached egg on udon noodles with a seaweed dashi soy sauce; it’s finished with strands of dried nori ($7.80).

Colourful, fun and a great dish going into spring.

Guu SakaBar, 559 Bloor St. W., 647-343-1101
