Recently, someone hit me up to ask my why have I been featuring so many West Island restaurants recently. Simple; recognition where recognition is due. Once upon a time the west island was a barren wasteland of interesting restaurants. Ok, I meant, the west was the place the place to go to if you wanted to dine at the same five Italian places that are stuck in time. Or if you liked big box chains and the food court at the mall. Otherwise you’d have to trek past Ikea for some decent eats.
But now they’ve got claims for proper Korean food like Corilla, Matjip, and Coq au Miel, dumplings at Mama Dumpling and Dumpling King, southern options like barbecue at Smokebox, a taste of ‘Nawlins at Nolah, to legit Persian kebabs at Grill Select. You’ve come a long way West Island, I applaud you! This week I’m checking out the newest player in the game, Hoshi, your new all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ and sushi spot.
