Sure As Shuruku
I was taking a course at Robson Square and visited Shuruku on Granville Street just off Robson twice, a week apart for my hour long lunch breaks and they got me out of there quickly in time including walking time. I had great service (some servers nicer than others but everyone very efficient), and I was well fed for the afternoon hours with a great lunch box set. The one pictured above included pork back ribs which were not super tender, but very tasty and served on a layer of bean sprouts. They were not glazed like the pictures of their dinner time signature pick ribs. The next time, I chose the same type of box but with beef short ribs - a bit awkward to gnaw on for me, but tasty. The tempera was really nice and light and it was a lot of food. I like the green beans in the gomaae. I've been to this restaurant several times for dinner and even to a sake tasting event too (they bring in stuff from Japan that you wouldn't be able to buy in the BC liquor stores) but it's nice to know that they can do a good week day lunch. Not cheap (around $15.95), but good.
