Went to Guu on Thurlow for their lunch.

I am a creature of habit, for the Guu lunch I would usually order either the Katsu Curry or the Grilled Saba, and maybe if I am hung over I will get something deep fried. I decided to explore the Guu menu, and try something new. This time I opted for the Japanese Special, Cod belly but to my disappointment they were sold out, so I went with a buddy's recommendation, I tried the Doria for the first time.

So what is Doria? I didn't know, I have seen it before, it looks like a rice gratin with corn. So what does it taste like? RICH. Rice with bits of corn and tons of cheese on top. It was ok but not worth ordering, next time I will stick with the deep fried things or the katsu curry. My lactose in tolerant asian ass did not do well with this dish.

Guu lunch is guud but stick with the saba, deep fried things or the katsu curry (show here). A small salad comes with the meal and it tastes great (also shown here). I figured out how to make the salad dressing, hit me up if you are interested.

Doria is a popular item in Japan, you can find it often at "family restaurants", but its also a common household dish - you can see it as a pre-packaged frozen container in supermarkets, much like say lasagna (the heat and serve kind). Probably the most popular are seafood doria (with say shrimp or squid) or chicken doria. The one you had sounded like it was pretty basic when it came to added ingredients.

Doria is commonly made with b├ęchamel sauce (made up of milk, butter, flour) so added some more lactose to the total package. :)

We tried to go to this Guu for lunch when we were in Vancouver last week. Unfortunately, one of my friends doesn't eat meat (only seafood) and we left because there were only three non-meat items available for lunch. Wish we could have made it for dinner though.

the lunch is a good deal, I like the Katsu Curry but the saba is a good alternative.

I wish they still had this on the menu. I've had it once, and lately have been craving it again.
