How I heard of this place: Bayan gave me three lunch options when I arrived, starving, at his home in Yaletown: pho, sukiyaki, deep-fried chicken wings. I chose to try something new and Posh Charcoal Collaboration Dining; Posh for short, was it! Claiming to be the first exclusive Japanese Sukiyaki restau­rant in North America, Posh is Bayan’s favorite for sukiyaki in Vancouver.
Type of cuisine: Sukiyaki: “Sukiyaki is a popular dish in Japan. Suki means “as you like it” and “yaki” means “grill” in Japanese. It mainly consists of thinning sliced beef, simmered in a pot based sukiyaki sauce.vSukiyaki is a dish made with a salty-sweet sugar and soy-sauce base in Japan. BUT here at Posh, we use a healthier solution, to eliminate sugar but rather to use a combination of 8 fruits and vegetables to create a natural sweet­ness. Sukiyaki is served with a small dish of raw egg, thoroughly beaten with chopsticks until it is a uniform, bright yellow color. Take the beef, onions, etc with your chopsticks and dip it into the raw egg, then eat.”
Ambiance: “The second location first opened its doors in December 2007. This Posh location was a big milestone for the organi­zation as it was only 12 months after the initial launch of the Richmond location. The capacity of this facility is 120 guests; it offers a larger more comfortable location with booth seating suitable to groups of all sizes. This Vancouver Broadway location is also equipped with a VIP dining room designed to seat 20 people through two large tables with TV for presentations and sports games. This private room allows for personalized service requests while great for hosting birthdays, occasions and group gatherings. We invite you to visit our Broadway facilities.” Located at Broadway and Burrard with underground pay park­ing at the back, the restaurants welcomes you with dark, bold colors in black, red and white. Tall-backed booth seating creates an air of privacy as diners at the large booths and tables enjoy their unlimited vegetable plates and cuts of thinly sliced beef and pork.
What I ordered: Both my dining companion and I opted for the sukiyaki lunch special ($13.95 each) with all-you-can-eat meat and vegetables of our choosing. We selected a plate full of bean sprouts, pumpkin, winter squash, soft tofu and tofu puffs, taro, yams, bamboo shoots, bean curd, baby corn, enoki and shiitake mushrooms, bok choy, udon and vermicelli noodles and other such goodness. “We make you a deal, try the Certified Angus Beef because you certainly won’t regret it. After all, only 8% of beef in Canada qualify for this prestige and Posh would like you to try from the very best MOO…”
What I loved: I loved the beef, thinly sliced and quickly prepared, the taste of the sukiyaki sauce and the fresh greens served on our plate of vegetables.
Why I loved it: The food is a do-it-yourself, interactive experience and can be enjoyed for hours (no seating limit) as you savor every bite of the food in front of you and fill yourself up!
Cost: Average to high ($13-$20 per lunch)
