There is an amazing selection of ethnic cuisine on Robson and surrounding areas. Hapa Izakaya was one of my favorite places that I ate at while I was there for a week in March 2016.

We often travel to Japan and eat in average Izakaya, which are pretty good. This is only average. I am used to more vegetable choices and spiced food. Their offerings did not meet that level.
