My foodie cousins took me to Guu @ Thurlow way back when it opened in the early 2000’s and it has been one of my favourite restaurants ever since! I’ve also been to Guu @ Gastown but have yet to try the Guu @ Aberdeen. Since my friend works at Aberdeen, I suggested eating at Guu!
Beef Tongue All Stars $8.00 (Marinated Grilled Beef tongue; Smoked Beef Tongue; Beef Tongue with Tsukune sauce)..The beef tongue was deeply marinated and the meat was tender! Of all 3 cooking styles, I couldn’t pick one which I liked more!
Seared beef tenderloin with mixed mushrooms and garlic mushroom sauce… the beef was so tender and juicy! The sauce was so “guu-d” I kept on dipping and mixing the mushrooms until it was soaked by the sauce!
This Guu is “guu-d” but I think I prefer Guu @ Thurlow because I like its cozier atmosphere and I think the food there is better executed. I have previously mentioned in the Hapa Izakaya post that I missed Guu more than Hapa and I think the reason is that I prefer going to lively places and Guu is certainly lively, with all the waiters yelling out the orders to the kitchen!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
