#70 Guu SakaBar

Guu SakaBar

The menu at Guu Two is slightly different from Guu One, but certain things don’t change. Still the cramped communal tables with backless benches. Still the marvellous shouting from the staff when you arrive and depart. Still the dark, noisy, hectic craziness, and still the fabulous food tastes. This Guu does great raw stuff — impeccably fresh sea urchin and sweet raw shrimp, grand scallop sashimi with creamy sea urchin sauce, barely seared B.C. tuna with crispy garlic chips. They have entered the land of fusion with entertaining carbonara udon (some cream and bacon with your dashi? Yum!). Thank the food gods for giving Toronto another Guu.
