Good article on Izakayas in Vancouver

Izakaya, known to me as a joint that serves japanese tapas and beer, has been a popular staple amongst Vancouver locals for quite a few years now. Its reputation and popularity with visitors coming in the sample the much talked about menu has also grown immensely. As more Izakayas open up, Japanese tapas are becoming like Dim sum but for dinner, instead of brunch. I stumbled across an article about Vancouver Izakayas on Chow.com which has a good overview and listing of Izakayas in Vancouver area, covering famous ones such as Guu and Gyoza King. If you love japanese cuisine and never been to an Izakaya, I recommend going to Guu on Robson. It offers a unique experience with their chaotic yet upbeat atmosphere, and most importantly, their cocaine-for-your-palette tapas.
