Juno Vancouver Sushi Bistro is a little Japanese restaurant located on Davie street on the border of Yaletown. It is quite small inside
but it’s decorated nicely and looks a lot more upscale than your typical little sushi place. I came here for lunch but I wasn’t really in the mood for sushi so I decided to order the pork katsu-don ($9). This made with deep-fried pieces of kurobuta pork with eggs, green onion, and sautéed onions on top of a bed of brown rice. The meal also came with a miso soup. The miso soup was served hot and it was satisfying but nothing out of the ordinary.
When I got my big bowl of katsu-don the first thing I noticed was how great it smelled. When I took my first bite it tasted as delicious as it smelled. The pork was really soft and there were tons of big pieces on top. I love onions and I liked how it had sautéed onions and some green onions sprinkled on top. Both of them added really nice but different flavors. The portion of rice was generous and it soaked up all of the juices from the toppings so it was full of flavor. In every couple bites you would get a nice little piece of egg.
I’m shocked that this place wasn’t busier, the food is great! This dish was truly amazing, it was the best Japanese pork dish I’ve ever had. It had so much flavor and the quality and portion were good for the price. I would love to come back here and try more things on the menu.
Yes, if you are a pork lover.
