This past Tuesday was Guu Izakaya's third birthday and in celebration they hosted a buffet style party. The party ran from 5pm - 12am with a time limit of 2 hours, it was excellently organized with great food, drinks and entertainment. The entrance cover was $33 and that included all you can eat food, 1 alcoholic drink or 2 non-alcoholic drinks, entertainment and a free small gift.
The had the buffet along the bar with cocktail tables all around and a stage for the performers at the front.
Guu staff were working so hard as per usual, they kept the buffet stocked pretty well.
I basically tried to fit everything on my first plate. Chicken katsu sandwich, salmon and tuna tataki sushi balls, roast beef with red wine onion sauce, marinated pork belly and tamago.
I also takoyaki and deep-fried cod tacos.
I only took pictures of two plates but I had my fair share...
Each person got one drink ticket but you could buy more if you wanted to. One ticket could get you a beer, cocktail or wine. Half of a ticket could get you two pops, ramune or lychee/guava juice.
This is the Bamboo, with lychee juice, white wine, soda, and melon liqueur. It tasted like an Asian sangria, delicious. Chris opted for a Sapporo.
There was also fantastic entertainment with After Hours, a acapella group, graffiti art by RANDOM : and Winston Matsushita
and fantastic djing by DJ TOM.
We literally ate from 5 - 7 and we were both pretty stuffed.
Guu is one of my favourite restaurant ever and I was happy that I could celebrate such a special day with them.
