Guu-Licious.

Guu-licious. Saturday night birthday wishes were made at a little Toronto scene stealer I’ve been wanting to try for a long time. It’s not just the food that is outrageous at Guu Sakubar but the atmosphere is something you cannot describe to its entirety until you step inside. My attempt was ‘if you work there, there is no going to work in a bad mood and if you are in a bad mood it’s transformed right away’. The room explodes in cheers when you walk in, when you order a new dish, when a birthday wish is made, when you leave for the evening and just because someone feels like yelling really loud which triggers a chain reaction. Long oak tables hold all of your closest friends and the trickles of simple crustacean art read ‘eat me’. I’ve never had octopus. I had octopus. It was incredible. -k
